Stay Safe While Skiing This Season

Of course, Snowbasin and UTA’s top priority is the safety of skiers and snowboarders during the COVID-19 pandemic. Ski resorts are keeping you safe by creating reservations systems, socially distancing skiers in lines and parking, as well as encouraging people not to carpool and to purchase a UTA Ski Bus season pass for only $10 more with their Snowbasin Season Pass.

UTA is ensuring your safety on the Ski Bus through the following efforts:

  • Daily sanitizing/cleaning
  • Limiting passenger loads on buses (watch for bus is full signs)
  • Driver barriers
  • Masks required at all times
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers
  • Contactless fare payment
  • Socially distanced lines at key stops

They can’t do this alone, so please follow these simple safety guidelines:

  • Stay 6 feet apart in social distance lines and on the bus
  • Wear your mask at all times
  • Keep skis with you instead of ski racks
  • Use hand sanitizer

Anticipate greater delays on the ski bus due to these safety measures and canyon traffic. However, ridership will be monitored daily and UTA is working closely with the ski resorts to get riders to and from the resorts as effectively as possible.

To minimize delays, take advantage of these suggested low peak days, times, routes and parking:

  • Best Days of the Week: 
    • Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
