Utah Maps and Travel Info
With daily national and international flight services into Salt Lake City International Airport, getting to Utah has never been easier. A flight into Salt Lake City puts you just minutes away from the Greatest Snow on Earth® at seven of our world class ski resorts. Within an hour drive is Snowbasin Ski Resort, home of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games downhill event, and a rising star among Utah's ski resorts. An hour and a half drive from the airport is another hidden gem, a local's favorite: Powder Mountain, or as locals refer to it, "Pow Mow." It boasts more than 7,000 acres of skiable terrain, the most of any resort in the United States. Three and a half hours from either Salt Lake City or Las Vegas is Utah's newest ski resort, Eagle Point. Its 9,000 foot base elevation ensures consistent high quality snow. Just outside Cedar City is Brian Head, Southern Utah's ski resort.
Within three and a half to four hours of the Salt Lake City International Airport, you could be on a hike to the iconic Delicate Arch at Arches National Park, atop the dramatic and sheer cliffs of Dead Horse Point State Park, or staring out over hundreds of miles of canyons, rivers and Mountains from the Islands in the Sky District of Canyonlands National Park.
Zion National Park, Utah's first and most visited national park, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Brian Head Ski Resort, and Bryce Canyon National Park are most easily accessed by a flight into the new St. George Airport, which can have you in Zion National Park in 40 minutes.
