Pros: Awesome lodge (took pictures of the bathrooms!), great views

Cons: Spring skiing slushy and hard to get back on main-run greens

This is the most incredibly over-the-top country-club-like resort we've been and we've skied all over USA.  It's so cool I took pictures of the bathrooms!  Beautifully done.  Three gondolas keep you from the weather getting around mountain, although a couple regular lifts are quite slow.  Very open terrain and plenty of blue and green for easy skiers, and then the Olympic runs for the advanced.  Staff are friendly and the access to everything easy.

 

Only complaint is not something they can change -- weather made it slushy by 1:00 and Apres Ski was very limited.  We went around St. Pat's Day 2017 and they were suffering from low temps (70 in the Valley) and slushy conditions made it hard to ski in as the main run is long and flatter.  It was very sticky by 1:00 p.m., but if you skied the upper territory and had elevation/slope it was very fun.  Due to being Utah there is one place to get a beer and follows Utah rules of needing to buy food too.

 

I highly recommend SnowBasin.   Great open blues for a intermediate skiier.
