Since 1988, Snowbird has continued to expand. It is not only a center of winter activities, but is also a resource for year-round recreation. The summer months at Snowbird are filled with various activities such as the Snowbird Hill Climb, summer concerts, Oktoberfest, Jazz and Blues Festival, and others.

Winter activities continue to center on skiing. The resort has an average snowfall of more than 500 inches a year (633 inches in 1992-93). Snowbird has forty-eight ski trails with a total of 1,572 acres of skiable terrain serviced by seven double chairlifts and one of the largest and most powerful aerial trams in the world--it can carry 120 passengers from the 8,100-foot base to the top of Hidden Peak at 11,000 feet. The total uphill capacity is 9,200 skiers per hour. The resort's four lodges and hotels have over 900 sleeping rooms, with the Cliff Lodge (532 rooms) the largest.
