Brighton Resort and a College Degree
Being located right up Big Cottonwood Canyon has its perks. A short drive from Salt Lake — just 30 miles from downtown — and you’ll be tearing up Brighton’s chutes, sidecountry and renowned parks. And 100 percent of the terrain can be accessed by the high-speed quad (Image courtesy Logan Davidson).

Another Big Cottonwood Canyon gem that lives up to the promise of its name, Solitude offers easy access to anyone staying along the Wasatch Front. There are rarely any lift lines, giving you more time to shred the glades of Black Forest or the advanced terrain of Honeycomb Basin. Alternatively, stick to the intermediate slopes and the groomers to save some energy for dinner and the symphony downtown. Is that a James Bond tuxedo under your snow suit?
Sunrise Tram at #snowbird. Good luck to @josh_brahn in the comp today. #mountains #sunrise #pardeeon @braunic
Take a ride up Little Cottonwood Canyon, and you’ll not only be blown away by its dramatic beauty, but also by just how close Snowbird is from downtown Salt Lake City. Just 35 minutes from SLC, you can stand hip-to-hip with locals on the iconic tram, and feel the collective energy of a powder day. Minutes later, you’ll be knee-deep on one of Utah’s most renowned mountains.
Awesome #bluebird day ... in #parkcity #skiing @domsdadd
30 Minutes to 7,300 Acres
Take a quick jaunt up Parley’s Canyon and you’ll have 7,300 acres to choose from. Being located on the outer edge of Park City means that at Park City Mountain on the Canyons Village side you can go from your downtown SLC hotel to the top of the Orange Bubble Express in less than an hour. To review: America's largest resort meets the Best Town in America and there's no need to prepare a road trip playlist.
Flash back Friday to snowboarding with my best friend/brother! Can't wait to be on the mountain again! #snowbasin #snowboarding @jenessaknight
A Whole Other Utah: Snowbasin
This may be getting ridiculous. Beyond Ski City's four resorts and Park City's 10,000+ acres, the Ogden area also sports three additional resorts and another 10,000 acres of terrain (with more coming online soon). Hop in the car from downtown Salt Lake City and head north to Snowbasin — located just outside of Ogden, a growing city in its own right. After less than an hour's drive, you can be tucking into the deep powder off the Strawberry Gondola and tucking into the giant pulled pork sandwiches at Snowbasin’s plush lodges. It's like a whole other Utah.
