Snowbird is known for its skiing, but when the snow on the mountains melts, the resort transforms into a premier summer destination. Everyone can find something to do this summer, whether you want to ride an exhilarating mountain coaster or take a scenic tram ride. And those with an adventurous spirit can traverse the mountain bike trails or experience unique rock climbing with the new Zipwhipper attraction.
