Ski Lifts in Snowbird
Snowbird’s has a total of 14 lifts serving 140+ ski trails and carrying up to 17,400 riders per hour. The high-capacity Aerial Tram gets you up the mountain in 7 minutes. The Alta Snowbird Pass is great value.
Snowbird Ski Lifts
Snowbird’s aerial tram carries 125 passengers at a time from the village up 2,900 feet (883 m) to Hidden Peak (11,000 ft/3,352 m) in seven minutes. Three high-speed quads and seven double chairs give access to additional terrain.
Lifts open at 9.00 am (except for the “Early Tracks” program, which allows guests to ski with a guide for an hour before the lifts open) and close at 4:30 pm. Chickadee is open until 8:30 pm for night skiing on Wednesdays and Fridays. The only line is for the aerial tram on Saturdays, holidays and powder days, but you can avoid this by using the chairlifts instead.
