      Snowbird has an developed trail system with some good riding to be found.

      The lower mountain has a circuit of trails (Chaunier, Mid Level, Dean's and Baby Thunder that are interconnected with some fire road/cat tracks. Baby Thunder is a good "up" trail leading to Mid Level and fire roads/cat tracks that access the upper mountain. Mid Level is closed to up hill traffic where it crosses Dick Bass Highway after 11:00 a.m.

      Mid mountain trails are mostly fire roads/cat tracks that lead to tram and Peruvian Lift. The Big Mountain trail is the exception, a downhill trail that goes from the tram top to the tram base when linked with the lower part of Mid Level. This trail combo gives one 7 to 7.5 miles of downhill punctuated by more berms, rock gardens and pump jumps than you can count.

      The trails on top are again mostly fire roads/cat tracks except for the aforementioned Big Mountain trail. From the top you can drop into Mineral Basin and access Alta or American Fork.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Land Status: National Forest
      Land Manager: uinta-wasatch-cache national forest
      Gad Valley Parking google parking directions
      Access Info:
      Usual meeting point is at the base of the Gad Lift.
