Snowbird's annual Customer Appreciation Days is four days this week, Oct 20-23, and also next weekend, Oct. 29-30. The tram operates from 11a.m. to 5 p.m..

Bring a donation of 3 cans of food or hygiene items or otherwise a $6 cash donation and get a free foot passenger tram ride. All food and hygiene items will be donated to the Utah Food Bank. All cash donations will benefit the Wasatch Adaptive Sports Program.

Last year, 7,618 lbs. of food was donated during Customer Appreciation Days, which equated to 6,348 meals distributed by the Utah Food Bank. Help us continue to help those in need and have a scenic adventure in the process.

The most needed items are:
  • Peanut butter
  • Canned tuna
  • Canned fruit (especially small pop-top variety)
  • Canned stews and chili
  • Boxed meals
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Pasta
Tips for when you go: Wear warm clothes and sturdy shoes or boots. It's cold up on top and there's often snow on ground. Take great photos to share with friends.
