In addition to offering up some of the most exciting and beloved skiing in Little Cottonwood Canyon—if you haven’t experienced the iconic Cirque off the tram, you should—Snowbird has it going on this season. 

Upgrades galore, in the form of what amounts to an overhaul of the aerial tram base and the lower village, will transform the visitor experience. Look for a full facelift at the Snowbird Center, Cliff Lodge west wing and dining upgrades, and, oh, the resort joins the Ikon Pass.
