Ski Travel Checklist

Weekends and holidays are crowded. The Cottonwood Canyons experience heavy car congestion leading to the resorts.

Can you go during a weekday? If you’re going on the weekend, have you reviewed canyon alerts and best practices, and are you prepared for a time-consuming journey up Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons? Are you able to take the UTA Ski Bus? Crowds typically thin out around 1 p.m. after lunch.

Different resorts require different types of reservations for lodging, parking and lift passes.

Have you secured all your needed reservations for the right days? Along with winter gear, have you packed the right type of mask and reviewed the resorts' COVID guidelines? 

Make sure you have the right vehicle.

If you are planning to access Utah resorts when snow is in the forecast is your four-wheel drive and/or is equipped with chains or snow tires? 

Help out our air quality.

If you’re looking to ski during an inversion or when air quality is poor, can you carpool or take the UTA ski bus to reduce vehicle emissions?

Demonstrate respect for the mountain.

If you feel the urge to push your boundaries, consider adult ski school or hiring a backcountry guide. And if you find yourself in a crowded lodge, lift line or ski run, remember that anytime you are in a crowd, you are the crowd. Have patience and be considerate of those you are sharing this outdoor space with.
