snowbasin is located approximately 20 miles east of Ogden, Utah and was host to the 1947 United States downhill and slalom championships. The event took place March 1st and 2nd and was the first major event on Utah's 1947 centennial sports program. Edy Rominger won the slalom championship and Rosemarie Bleuer came in second for the women's slalom. Snowbasin will host the downhill and Super G competitions in the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.

The chair lift at Snowbasin provides a nice ride for winter sports enthusiasts.
