The Perfect Spring Ski Day Itinerary
by Discover Davis
The days are longer, the weather is warmer and Utah’s snow is better than ever! All you need is this perfect Spring ski day itinerary to get you on Snowbasin slopes and then eating and relaxing in Davis County
Most Importantly: Bluebird Skiing at Snowbasin
As of March 1st, Snowbasin Resort had more than 12 feet (388.62 centimeters) of snow at its base! In March 2016, Utah received three feet of snow in the last three days, so you know there’s no shortage of powder during Spring in Utah. Spring skiing also offers warmer temperatures so you can leave off a couple of layers and soak in the sun.
You can easily get to Snowbasin Resort from Davis County. It’s under an hour travel time, and more convenient than ever with the new ski-bus UTA provides to get you from Davis County directly to the slopes. Once you arrive you will be relieved with how uncrowded the lines and runs are, giving you plenty of freedom to explore the 3,000 acres of world-class skiing.
Take It Easy at Earl’s Lodge with Live Music
Snowbasin offers a free Live Music Series with national and regional touring acts through the end of March. Inside Earl’s Lodge at their Cinnabar where you can cozy up by the fireplace to enjoy the live entertainment.
