Terrain Based Learning is Coming! See the Photos

A new wave of beginner features is coming to Snowbowl! The Hart Prairie area is the epicenter of beginner skiing and riding at Snowbowl and we can’t wait to add to the fun with Terrain Based Learning features!

Snowmaking: A Behind the Scenes Look

As our scheduled opening day (November 16th!) draws nearer and our snowmaking crews work hard to prep the mountain, we decided to give you a behind the scenes look at this season’s most important activity! From the snowmakering crew’s overnighters–creating enough snow to cover 20 acres–to the important tasks of maintenance and logistics, we take snowmaking seriously at Snowbowl!

Come take a ride with our crew!

See you on the slopes November 16th!

100 Days To Ski Season

Celebrating Our Snowbowl Ski Dads!

At Snowbowl, we love finding ways to celebrate families. Families are the inspiration for everything we do on the mountain, from adding new summer activities (like summer tubing and the bungee trampoline) to building new lifts and trails for the winter.

In the spirit of Father’s Day, we asked a few of our Snowbowl dads to give their favorite tips and tricks to successful skiing days with their kiddos. From extra snacks to extra layers, we hope these tips give fellow dads the tools they need to hit the slopes with their family in tow!

From Josh, longtime Snowbowl skier and father ...
