Utah's Easy Access

Getting to Utah

Air travel

With 700 daily non-stop flights to/from more than 98 destinations into the Salt Lake International Airport, Utah's location at the Crossroads of the West means you have more time to enjoy world-class snow and all the winter sports you love in one place. Skiing and snowboarding in Utah is not just fun — it’s also easy. A quick cup of coffee and a morning flight to Salt Lake City gets you on the slopes by afternoon. Once you've landed, most of Utah’s 14 spectacular resorts are … well, right here. An abundance of ski resorts near Salt Lake City means you can be high up in the mountains in a matter of minutes. Stay anywhere along the vibrant Wasatch Front and you'll find a winter paradise in your own backyard. Talk about easy access.

Have an early flight in from the northeastern United States? It's easy to get up for this great snow. Besides, you've gotten up early to indulge before. We've seen the lines for cronuts.

Travel by train

You don’t even have to fly to get here. Try a scenic train ride to feed your need for adventure. Amtrak's California Zephyr passes through downtown Salt Lake City between San Francisco and Chicago. Furthermore, after you step off the platform, phone for a taxi or schedule an Uber or Lyft request and up the canyons you go. Getting around Utah can be easy and effortless. Don’t expect same-day ski service by rail, but do expect to meet interesting people, see picturesque scenery and enjoy the pleasurable anticipation of a wintry mountain escape.
