Winter Hike to Green Pond

Utah Green Pond Trail

Added by Shayli Lones

A great winter hiking trail sitting just below the Snowbasin Ski Resort. The Green Pond trail offers views of the resort and the surrounding Wasatch Mountains. In the early or late winter you'll be able to see several small ponds along the trail, if they aren't frozen and snow covered.

About a mile before Snowbasin, is a parking lot with a map and trail marker. The first incline is steep and follows a single track trail that leads to the ponds. In the winter, you may have some stray backcountry snowboarders in the area, but it's pretty quiet overall.

Pack List

If you’re hiking in the summer or winter be sure to pack water for both you and your dog. The ponds remain stagnant year round and there isn't any running water along the trail for the dogs. There are several picnic areas along the way that make for a great lunch stop.

  • Water
  • Lunch or snacks
  • Sunscreen
  • Warm layers
  • Waterproof shell
  • Dog leash

How to Get There

Good For A Quick Get Away

Me and three other friends did this hike around 8.30 PM after having the itch to get up into the mountains! The trail was packed down so snowshoes were not necessary unless we wanted to go off the path and explore. Head lamps and flashlights are a must though the moonlight was bright. We dressed in a few layers and were good even though temps were in the low 20s. Overall it was a good easy hike and a quick easy get away! The Stars were beautiful and the clear air was incredible. The only concern is that there are many paths so remember which ones you choose on the return trip! Other than that I would recommend this adventure to anyone on any skill level.
