A jewel of a ski resort, Snowbasin was site of the 2001 winter Olympics. It is a mere 20-25 minute drive from our home, using directions provided with directions to our home. Even if you don't ski, it's a great place in summer for mountain biking, hiking and riding the gondolas (glass bubble ski lift, $15 without skis). Check Snowbasin for schedule.
