Due to safety concerns and misuse of the uphill travel policy, Snowbasin is suspending uphill travel until further notice. Uphill travel is one of the great free benefits we offer our guests at Snowbasin and historically, Snowbasin’s Leadership Team has been supportive of offering this great experience to our guests. Unfortunately, guests have recently decided to abuse this privilege and it has become a safety concern for guests and employees. Recently, guests have taken advantage of the program by ignoring designated routes, staying on-mountain longer than the policy allows, being verbally abusive to staff, and on December 9th we had two guests blatantly ski pass our winch cat signs. The rules around these snowcats are well-known in the industry and these guests put themselves in great physical jeopardy by ignoring signage that is very visible, including flashing winch cat lights.
Effective Dec 10th uphill travel is suspended until further notice and Snowbasin will not put the safety of guests or our staff in jeopardy. As General Manager, I encourage this group to form, gather emails and create a system for ongoing communication with the resort. We don’t have a great means of communicating or tracking who you are because this uphill privilege is free and not ticketed. Again, the resort wants to keep this experience going but we demand better from those taking part. You should demand more from each other too as the few are making it challenging for the many. We will reevaluate the uphill policy later this week and reinstate uphill travel when we deem it appropriate. The safety of our guests and staff will always be our first priority at Snowbasin.
Snowbasin, General Manager
