Ski for less with Black Friday deals from Snowbasin

If you feel like you’ve been cooped up most of the year, you’re probably looking forward to winter sports. From skiing to snowboarding, you can hit the slopes and enjoy the fresh mountain air all while getting in a good workout.

According to a Science Daily article, the benefits of exercising in nature are numerous. “Compared with exercising indoors, exercising in natural environments was associated with greater feelings of revitalization, increased energy and positive engagement, together with decreases in tension, confusion, anger and depression,” notes the article.

So if you’re ready to shake off 2020 and revitalize your mind and body, take advantage of these Snowbasin deals you won’t find any other time of the year.

Starting today, you can save $50 off weekday lift tickets making your pass under $100 for any age group. You can also save up to $37 off private lessons when you book online in advance. The private lessons are for up to five people, and they include lift access one hour before the public as well as expedited lines for lifts.

In addition to lower slope prices, lodging in the area is also discounted. Snowbasin partnered with several properties in the Hunstville and Ogden areas to provide up to 25% off lodging.

New to Snowbasin this season is an expanded learning area, a new trail to the Canyon Rim parking area, more outdoor dining options, and much more.

Additionally, guests can rest assured Snowbasin is working to keep guests safe by grouping family or friends together on the lifts and gondolas and reducing capacity on the tram by more than 50%. People taking the lift or gondolas will also have the option of riding with other people, but only if both parties are comfortable.

In addition to crowd control, Snowbasin is requiring face coverings in public areas. They are also providing more public restrooms on the mountain to help reduce crowding in the lodge. To see all of their health precautions, visit Snowbasin’s website.

Snowbasin boasts an impressive 3,000 skiable acres and 3,000 vertical feet with 104 runs, 11 lifts and three terrain parks. For those new to skiing, you can rest assured that this is a good thing. Snowbasin is the No. 3 ski resort in the west on Ski Magazine’s Best Ski Resorts 2019 list.

With as many runs as they boast, there are plenty of areas for all levels of skiers and snowboarders alike. Beginners can enjoy seven easier runs, intermediate skiers will have fun on 30 middle-difficult runs, and advanced skiers can choose from 35 most difficult and 32 expert-only, including the Grizzly and Wildflower Downhill Course from the 2002 Winter Olympics.

As the winner of Ski Magazine’s Access Award, one of the most-cited reasons that skiers and snowboarders love Snowbasin is the peaceful atmosphere and lack of competition for fresh snow. Because the resort has so many runs and skiable miles, and is just far enough off the beaten track, the influx of tourists that often clog the Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons won’t trample the runs at Snowbasin.

Additionally, the location is prime for people who prefer more skiing and fewer traffic problems. It’s only a 45-minute drive north of Salt Lake City — and traffic usually goes the opposite way.

To get the best deals on one of Utah’s top ski destinations, buy your lift tickets by November 30, 2020. Visit snowbasin.com or call 801-620-1000 to book now.
