snowbird- Kid Friendly???

I got into a debate this weekend with a friend about how kid friendly (under 10 years old) snowbird is. I love the bird, but I would never take my 9 and 6 year olds there. The place is just too tough for them, very variable weather, powder, and limited intermediate trails.

Am I wrong??

I loved riding the hard trails with my parents when I was a little kid. I've never been to snowbird but I grew up riding squaw valley and I don't know how different the two are but I think that little kids are so much better now and starting out young is the only way to keep up!

I've seen little shits bombing the bird, especially off the Mid-Gad Chair. Hell, I even saw a woman riding with her toddler strapped to her chest in a baby bjorn. Too friggin cute!

Yes, you're wrong. There are mellow sections there just as any place. You will also see tons of groms ripping it harder than you do.

Thanks. I guess I have only seen the harder parts of the mountain. Compared to PCMR, Canyons, Brighton, etc Snowbird seemed less kid friendly. Thanks for the feedback.

This puts a whole different dynamic to your original post. Yes! It does seem less kid friendly than the other three, and might possibly be slightly less kid-friendly. But, that is because it sections that are much gnarlier than the three you referenced.
