"The Greatest Snow on Earth" Areaguide To Skiing Salt Lake City Utah. Salt Lake City's Wasatch Mountains are home to 6 world-class ski resorts, all within 30 to 45 minutes from the Salt Lake Valley. An abundance of beautiful sunny days, various terrains to suit everyone's needs, and quick access up the canyons, makes "Skiing Salt Lake" an excellent choice for your next ski vacation!
Imagine skiing endless untracked powder snow. To me, it feels peaceful and gentle, sort of like floating. It's quiet - except for the 'wows' and various screams of joy around you. Take the leap, love the journey, Ski Salt Lake!
Why is Utah's Snow So Light?
The secret to Utah's unique snow is in the huge lake and its closeness to our mountain range. Storms suck up moisture as they pass over the nearby Great Salt Lake and is dropped on Salt Lake's Mountains just miles away. The light powder snow, thanks to the lakes salinity, falls en masse ( appx. 500 inches per year ) upon Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude Ski Resorts creating some of the best powder skiing and snowboarding in the world. Park City's Ski Resorts also benefit from this lake effect snow but not to the effect that the Salt Lake Ski Resorts do.
After your first visit, you'll say "There's nothing quite like a ski vacation at either Snowbird or Alta ski areas, with some of the driest, deepest powder found anywhere". Both resorts are up Little Cottonwood Canyon which is serviced by UTA buses. There are pickup locations throughout the city, but for complete flexibility your best bet would be to rent a car.
Alta is the ultimate skiers' ski mountain! It's a big, fun, no-frills resort with spectacular scenery, breathtaking runs and air so crisp, just drawing a breath becomes a novel experience. With over 2,200 acres of skiable terrain and a vertical drop of 2,020 feet, Alta offers plenty of excitement for advanced and expert skiers and lift tickets may well be one of the last great bargains anywhere. For the 2022 Ski Season, an adult full day ticket (9:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily) cost between $113 to $159. Alta may not, however, be the best choice for beginners. At least 75 percent of this spectacular terrain, located in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest, is rated intermediate or expert. And snowboarders should note that Alta is one of the last major resorts in the world to deny access to snowboarders.
For families and resort aficionados, Snowbird, located adjacent to Alta, may be the better choice. With even more terrain than Alta, Snowbird also offers luxuries missing at Alta, such as shops, sophisticated restaurants and expensive lodging. With a vertical drop of 3,000 feet, a peak elevation of 11,000 feet and more than 500 inches of annual snowfall covering 2,000 acres of skiable terrain, it's almost impossible to run out of new trails to try at Snowbird. Adult lift tickets, by chair or tram are $145 to $170 for the 2022 Ski Season.
There are many reasons why we hosted the Winter Olympics in 2002, but the # 1 reason is: Utah is simply spectacular for winter sports.
