Ski & Snow Sports
Skiers and snowboarders revere Utah for having The Greatest Snow on Earth® (here’s why), but Salt Lake City also offers some of the closest slopes on earth. With 10 ski resorts less than an hour from Salt Lake City International Airport, a winter vacation spent skiing in Utah lets you clock more time skiing, riding, relaxing in style and warming up in the hot tub in between.
As your airplane descends and you look out from the tarmac, you’ll see why Utah’s mountains are a backyard playground and, come winter, a powder-covered one. They surround a thriving urban center and cradle nearby mountain resort destinations, fully inclusive with luxury lodging, fine dining, spas and winter culture.
Whether you prefer backcountry adventures like snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ski touring or family time snow tubing, ice skating and exploring an ice castle — when you get on Mountain Time™, you have more time to do it all.
If you’re looking to wind back the clock, Utah’s premier facilities featured in the 2002 Winter Olympics continue to train amateur and elite athletes. Relive an Olympic moment and capture a new snapshot in time riding the Comet Bobsled, Nordic skiing at Soldier Hollow or lacing up skates at the Utah Olympic Oval.
So, now the question is: How will you spend more mountain time? Hint: Skiing in Utah, one of the best ski destinations in the US!
