This three-day powder dream ski vacation takes you to Utah ski resorts all known for their seemingly endless stashes of deep powder. In Salt Lake City and Ogden, you can ski or ride all day then relax slopeside for the night, or make the short trip back to the city for a night on the town.
Salt Lake City isn't your regular ski town — it's a Ski City. With big city, world-class amenities galore and 10 different resorts within an hour of Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC), Salt Lake City, Utah ski trips can satiate any skier's or snowboarder's lust for more time on the The Greatest Snow on Earth® (here's why), and if you have an Ikon Pass or Ski City Super Pass, you can ski any or all four Cottonwood Canyon resorts for a fraction of the walk-up rate.
Best of all, because of its size, Salt Lake City lets you live your powder dreams on any budget and, rest assured, there’s no ‘roughing it’ here. You can still enjoy a vibrant,‘West of Conventional’ urban culture and modern lifestyle. This three-day itinerary visits your choice of Ski City’s four resorts, plus makes the short drive north for a bonus day at one of Ogden’s resorts. Once you get a taste for Utah ski trips — and once you realize how close,easily-accessible and incredible it all is — you may never want to ski anywhere else.
