Stage Overview:

If there has been one consistency to the Tour of Utah, it’s the final climb up to Snowbird Resort. In the winter, Snowbird is known for its 500 inches of annual snowfall and powder skiing. In the summer, it’s known for the fan frenzy of Tanners Flat and the shake out of the yellow jersey contenders. Only twice in recent years has the winner of the Snowbird stage worn the winner’s jersey at the end of the week. The race has a new start location at the Canyons Village of Park City Mountain. After exiting the Village, the racers will be challenged by the undulating terrain of Summit County before climbing up Browns Canyon back towards historic Park City and the climb up the Category 1 Guardsmans Pass. Then, riders will have a blistering 15-mile descent that drops almost 5000’ ft to the Salt Lake Valley below. Then, riders finish with a Hors Category climb up Little Cottonwood Canyon where Snowbird Resort awaits.
