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, Salt Lake City, Utah ski trips can satiate any skier's or snowboarder's lust for more time on the mountain's powder. And not just any powder. Utah’s own brand of powder, the fluffy stuff with perfect floatation we call The Greatest Snow on Earth® (here's why).
Best of all, living your powder dreams can be budget-friendly, or can tap a metropolitan lifestyle and high culture. This three-day itinerary visits your choice of Ski City’s four resorts, plus makes the short drive north for a bonus day on one of Ogden’s resorts. Once you get a taste for Utah ski trips — and once you realize how close it all is — you may never want to ski anywhere else.
