Utah Ski Resorts
Utah is such a hardcore skiing and snowboarding state that Utah drivers have the slogan “Greatest Snow on Earth,” written across their license plates. Utah’s skiing and snowboarding is characterized by their abundance of light, dry snow that falls each winter (over 500 inches anually). Three resorts, Park City Mountain Resort, Deer Valley and The Canyons, are all located in the town of Park City and offer fantastic skiing and riding along with luxurious dining, lodging, family activities and nightlife options. Utah’s Big Cottonwood Canyon, is home to Solitude Mountain Resort, a local favorite. Head to Little Cottonwood Canyon and you'll find Snowbird, Utah's biggest vertical drop, and Alta, where mountain use is limited to skiers only.
