However, most of the lodgings are in the Ogden Valley either in downtown Ogden or in the neighbouring towns of Huntsville and Eden where transfers take approximately 50 minutes. From Huntsville, it only takes 15 minutes to get to Snowbasin.

There are several airport transfer companies that will take you up to Ogden Valley and Snowbasin.

By train

You can catch the Frontrunner train from downtown Salt Lake City to Ogden. If you are planning on skiing for the day and then returning to Salt Lake City that evening, Snowbasin lay on a shuttle bus up to the resort for a small charge - pick-up is at 8.30am and 9.30am with a return to the station at 4.30pm.

Going by train is an ok option for a day trip but for convenience and exploring the other nearby ski resorts, hiring a car is advisable.
