Ski & Snowboard

You're here to ski. You've come to the right place. Aside from having The Greatest Snow on Earth, what sets Utah apart from other skiing and snowboarding locations is the easy access. Of Utah's 14 resorts, 10 are within an hour of the Salt Lake International Airport. 

As your airplane descends and you look out from the tarmac, you’ll see — up close and personal — why Utah’s mountains are a powder-covered backyard playground. Better yet, they surround a thriving urban center and nearby resort destinations, fully inclusive with luxury lodging, fine dining, spas and winter culture.
