Experience Utah's Powder
The quest for perfect powder ends — then begins — in Utah. If you've never skied or ridden on Utah's powder, get here now. Once you have, you'll find yourself returning year after year. Nearly all of Utah's 14 ski resorts offer a head-spinning combination of ungroomed slopes, bowls and backcountry.
If you're new to The Greatest Snow on Earth®, to help you get started we've compiled a short list of Utah's best powder stashes from powder hounds and snow bunnies prone to getting the #PowderFlu.
DEEP POWDER STASHES: LOCALS' ICONIC UTAH POWDER PICKS
Alta Ski Area
Great skiers from across the world dream of the long, steep pitch of Alf’s High Rustler after a huge storm. With its imposing pitch and prominent visibility from the base of the mountain, this iconic run at Alta Ski Area is at the top of the steep and deep bucket list.
Snowbird Ski Resort
Snow blows in deep on this legendary descent at Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort. Imagine 1,200 vertical feet of 40-degree pitches, tree-lined chutes and rugged cliffs above a hanging snow field. For those who like to charge hard, this is a must ski.
Park City Mountain
It’s no surprise The Salt Lake Tribune crowned Park City Mountain's Jupiter Bowl "Utah’s favorite ski run." From the openness of its Main Bowl, to the pines on Portuguese Gap, to the exhilarating steeps of West Face, Jupiter is a treasure trove of fluffy, white goodness.
Steep, untouched and unbelievable, Shug’r Bowl is pure mountain bliss on the slopes of Powder Mountain. Accessible only by snowcat, it’s like a VIP room for powder hounds and exactly what you would expect from a resort with powder in its name.
Solitude Mountain Resort
With some of the best off-piste terrain in Utah, Solitude's Honeycomb Canyon is even sweeter than it sounds. Drop in for some steep tree action, cruise through its chutes and then coast to the Summit Lift for another lap.
