Directions

Please note that Mormon Emigrant Trail is closed during winter. This road will likely pop up as the fastest route on your GPS system, so make sure to select an alternate option if traveling in winter or early spring! Also, if your navigation system delivers directions including the use of Shake Ridge Road or Fiddletown Road, please select an alternate route. These roads are both very narrow, curvy, and steep; in some areas they have limited or no snow removal and poor cellular service in event of emergencies.

Where are we going today?

Kirkwood Mountain Ski Resort

Skiing and snowboarding lessons and open routes are available, with lessons beginning at age 2. All levels of ability catered for but there are only 5 green runs, with much larger intermediate terrain. A special kids only training area is available however to support skill development, serviced by chairs 7 and 9.

There is a cross country and snowshoe centre acting as a base and rental location for these sports.

Summer activities include hiking, mountain biking, ropes challenge course, disc golf, fly fishing, rock climbing and more.

    Great bunny slopes, and a cheaper, limited access ticket which u have to buy at the counter. They saw us struggling and got a free lesson too! Only downside is theres nothing in that vicinity, so if you're a beginner like me, make sure you find out where to rent gear before you go. I ended up having to buy ski pants from the store which set me back >$100.

    Great terrain. Snow conditions are better then other locations due to the altitude.
