CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Snow Basin

Ride 7.9 miles gaining 1,894’ at 3.8% average grade (5.6% climb only) to 6,522’

According to PJAMM’s Utah resident and senior (senior as to time contributing to PJAMM, not chron age  😊)   ambassadors Stacy Topping and Bruce Hamilton, this is a beautiful climb akin to many in the French Pyrenees.

Climb summary by Bruce:

This is a beautiful and quiet climb just over the mountain from Ogden. It feels as if it’s very isolated even though the city is just over the hill and it felt similar to remote climbs in the Pyrenees. There is now a new road to get to Snow Basin and this old road is essentially unused and it’s even closed to cars about halfway in. So the first four miles has almost no traffic and the next four miles behind the gate closure are only bikes. I’d rate this one as beautiful and secluded and highly recommended. Not a difficult climb by PJAMM standards but high up on the scenic/enjoyment list. You can return the same way you climbed or make a loop by coming down the new road – beautiful and smooth descent on the new road as well.

The climb begins by riding south up Hwy 226 near the southern shores of Pineview Reservoir and finishing near Snowbasin Ski Resort (host to the 2002 Olympic downhill, combined and super-G events.

The steepest ½ mile is 7.2% and steepest mile 6.4%.  There is also a 1.1 mile -5.5% descent beginning at mile 2.7 and a .4 mile flat to slightly descending segment from mile 4.3 to 4.7.

The incomparable Powder Mountain bike climb (#11 US / 152 World) is just about 10 miles to the north and a must-do Utah and US climb.
