STAY SAFE while Skiing this Season

The ski season is almost here, and we know you are excited to get out of the house to enjoy the great outdoors on December 12, 2020.

Snowbasin, Powder Mountain, and UTA’s top priority is the safety of the skiers and snowboarders during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ski Resorts are keeping you safe by creating reservations systems, socially distancing skiers in lines and parking, as well as encouraging people not to carpool and to purchase a UTA Ski Bus season pass for only $10 more with their Snowbasin Season Pass and $35 more with their Powder Mountain Season Pass.

UTA is ensuring your safety on the Ski Bus through the following efforts:

  • Daily sanitizing/cleaning
  • Limiting passenger loads on buses (watch for bus is full signs)
  • Driver barriers
  • Masks required at all times
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers
  • Contactless fare payment
  • Socially distanced lines at key stops

We can’t do this alone, so please follow these simple safety guidelines:

  • Stay 6 feet apart in social distance lines or on the bus
  • Wear your mask at all times
  • Keep skis with you instead of ski racks
  • Use hand sanitizer

We expect greater delays on the ski bus due to these safety measures and canyon traffic. However, we will be monitoring ridership daily and working with the ski resorts to get riders to and from the resorts as effectively as possible.

We suggest you take advantage of our recommended low peak days, times, routes and parking below to minimize those delays.
