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.
This year they celebrate 80 years of skiing.
A locals favorite; no boarders, skiers only!
Top-rated in snow quality for its dry light snow averaging 560 inches (1,422 cm)
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.
Averages approximately 500 inches of low-density, "dry" Utah powder annually
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.
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.
