and known for deep powder and superb terrain. It has 7 chairs and 116 runs. Mountain Top: 10,550', Base: 8530', Vertical Drop: 2020'.
Snowbird has 8 lifts and some of the most challenging runs. It's a fascinating place to ski. Snow conditions vary from run to run.

We were hoping to run into Robert Redford since he owns the resort. Instead, he was skiing at Alta that day.
