Snowbasin lodging available yet?

post #1 of 8

I hate "schlepping" in the mornings so it's held me back from discovering Snowbasin for lack of lodging at the mountain itself. Any prognosis on when to expect such digs? Also, if I can't wait, what's the closest lodging to the mountain?

I have no idea when they plan to put in a bed base there at snowbasin. in a selfish sorta way i hope it's a long time off. Lack of bed base has kept that mountain very unpopulated. The closest would be a couple of small Band bs in Huntsville only a few mins drive to the base of Snowbasin. There is also a condo project on Pineview Lake close by. try this Number 1 800 958 1311

Snowbasin Lodging

Based on my conversations with some of the Snowbasin managers last week, it seems that there will be slopeside accomodations (hotel & condos) pretty soon, maybe even for 2005-2006. Nothing definite yet, but they are saying 2006-2007 season availability is very likely. The owner has spent millions there and has the money to do things fast if he has the building permits. Until there is something at the mountain, we will stay in Layton (20-30 min.) next year for quick and easy access to Snowbasin and 35 min. to Park City. There is a good variety of hotels and restaurants in Layton with easy access to Rt 89 (to Snowbasin) and I-15 South to SLC.

The condos at Lakeside village offers 8 minute access to the slopes. There are listings on vrbo and other websites as well as property management websites. It is located right in Huntsville and there are gorgeous new condos and older less expensive condos to rent. We have stayed there 3 years and love skiing Snowbasin because there is never a line and plenty of out of bound opportunity and very easy hiking for fresh powder areas. Snow Basin will be your only place to ski if you are a true skier because of the awesome terrain and no lines. There are three terrain parks for boarders!

Just stayed 15 days in downtown SLC, and drove 4 times to SBasin. WORTH EVERY MILE!!!!!!!!!!

If Sbasin will be your primary target, the Layton lodgings are a good idea.

You might try the Jackson Fork Inn in Huntsville. It's a quaint B&B with restaurant. We stayed there last year & it was nice. The setting is conducive to meeting others. It is about 10 minutes from Snowbasin.

After discovering Snowbasin, we decided that it's one of the best places to ski in Utah, if not all of the Rockies! On that note, this March we're going to stay in Ogden at the Hampton Inn (redeeming Hilton points and staying for free! yay!) so hopefully that will make a much shorter trip than from SLC....
Also, can't beat the $7 Snowcat skiing at Powder Mountain if they get some freshies!

There is also the Red Moose Lodge (http://theredmooselodge.com/) located in Eden. I have seen rates at this place for as low as $49/night. Depends on the time you go. They also provide shuttle service to Snowbasin and Powder Mountain. Check out the photo gallery, it looks like a damn nice place to stay!
