Snowbird gets about 500 inches of snow a year – which is a lot. It's the high altitude that does it, and it feels high after you take the tram 11,000 feet up in only eight minutes, but it's also the mainly north facing slopes with their steep angles that seem to retain snow allowing it to accumulate – it's black magic. But what Snowbird is best known for are the double black diamond runs.

The resort got a new superpipe in 2008, called Zaugg, but before that it had the natural terrain – huge bowls and steep slopes dropping into the trees – as well as a park with a half and quarter pipe, rails, table tops and kickers etc.
