One day at Snowbird

Which lifts would you take the most and where would you ride?
Looking for big mountain experience, but not extreme.
Thanks!

Tons and tons of videos on you tube that will give you a lot of insight.

I'm headed there in March. Place looks like an absolute blast. Have fun!!!

Thanks for the suggestions so far. Is the Tram worth it each time (may be time consuming, but I'm single) or are there better ways/lifts to access the good terrain

The tram, from what I can tell, is worth it at least once just for the experience. I've watched a hundred videos on the cirque and really want to drop it but man it looks beyond steep. If anything though, you can traverse over and drop the mini cirque which looks a bit too mellow.

Or I think you can work over to Barry Barry steep from the tram also.

Definitely I'd take a tram ride if for nothing else the beauty at top.

Without a doubt I will take the Tram at least once and maybe more if its not a long wait. Is it a long wait? Being its a peak holiday week tomorrow, I'm just wondering in addition to riding the Tram for all of the reasons that have been stated, if I am better off doing lift lines since I am riding single tomorrow in the interest of saving time to get up the mountain and if so which to focus on. Just looking for the most efficient use of time to maximize runs. I am traveling today and riding tomorrow.
