Ski Resorts in Utah

Salt Lake City does well as an Alpinists’ hub with more than seven resorts in its 30-mile radius, and the Wasatach Front Range of Utah has an infamous powder quality that leaves the Sierras limp in comparison. Still, neighboring Colorado has long held the popularity crown and the longer lift lines because, let’s face it, most “skiers” come to ski and then do a lot of other things. Utah skiing is for the purist, however; the resorts in the state that named itself “The Greatest Snow on Earth”, are all about the powder and what two sticks or a board can do in that powder. While major resorts like Alta and Snowbird (one lift ticket gets you into both) remain more ascetic, Deer Valley offers a similar experience to that of the Colorado resort: gourmet meals, shopping, and luxury accommodations. Further afield from the Salt Lake City area, Park City answers the call of the pampered skier. The resort has all the glam that celebrity skiers look for—including steeper lift ticket prices. For those wanting the smaller resort, Beaver, Brian Head, and of course, Robert Redford’s Sundance (an attempted environmental utopia) are good getaway options.
