Top features of winter vacations in Utah include:
Utah Ski Resorts, Close to Salt Lake City
The Little Cottonwood Canyon has two ski resorts, Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort (30 miles from the airport) and Alta Ski Resort (32 miles.)
Alta Ski Resort
Readers of Ski and Skiing Magazines consistently rank Alta at the top in the U.S. for powder, snow quality, terrain and value. Alta and Snowbird are often ranked together. This season Forbes ranked Alta/Snowbird the #2 Resort in the US, and the major criteria for the ranking was "Awesomeness!" Located just 40 minutes from the Salt Lake International Airport, Alta is one of the most accessible ski areas in North America.
Brighton Ski Resort
Brighton is all about the big three: snow, terrain, and value! The mountain averages 500 inches of snow a winter. The snow is traditionally light, fluffy and dry making it a paradise for riders and skiers. Brighton is located directly in the path of winter storms and it is also at the very top of Big Cottonwood Canyon so it gets the very best of the "greatest snow on earth," and lots of it. Perhaps it is the only mountain where friends or families can ride together on the same lift and then peel off onto different trails - beginner, intermediate, or expert - and all meet at the bottom to ride the lift together again.
Snowbird Ski Resort
Snowbird is located in the heart of the Wasatch-Cache National Forest in Little Cottonwood Canyon, one mile down canyon from Alta. Snowbird has an uphill capacity of 17,400 skiers and snowboarders per hour. The various lifts are: One Aerial Tram, 10 chairlifts including six high-speed detachable quads and four doubles (most with arm and leg rests) and one conveyer lift.
Solitude Ski Resort
"Refined by Nature", Solitude Mountain Resort is located a short 40-minute drive from the Salt Lake International Airport. Solitude is one of Utah's most intimate and inviting winter resorts. Solitude also offers a Nordic Center with nearly 20 kilometers of trails set for both classic and skating styles of Nordic skiing. And don't forget Honeycomb Canyon, it has some of the most awe inspiring, lift-served terrain in the country.
Park City Ski Resorts, 35 minutes from Salt Lake City
Two more resorts are accessed by taking Interstate 80 east from Salt Lake City approximatly 35 miles to Park City, an old mining town from 1800's. Historic buildings combined with the luxuries you would expect from a world class destination. Enjoy quality dining, quaint shops and a vibrant nightlife 365 days a year.
Park City Mountain Resort
America's Largest Single Ski And Snowboard Resort, located in the heart of Park City, Utah, only a 35 minute drive from Salt Lake City International Airport. Park City is home to over 7,300 skiable acres with a good mix of beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain. During Summer 2015, the Resort undertook the largest resort improvement project in the history of American skiing, one that linked it with neighbor Canyons Resort to create the United States' largest ski area. Park City bustles with activities year round with two distinct base areas, nine hotels, thrilling family adventures, and more than two dozen restaurants.
Park City is the largest ski area in the United States. With over 7,300 acres, 300+ trails, 38 lifts, seven terrain parks, 14 bowls, six natural half pipes, one super pipe and one mini pipe, plus many diverse ski-in/ski-out and village adjacent lodging properties, Park City is an easily accessible, world-class mountain destination located in an authentic & historic western town.
