Utah Areas 101

A snowstorm passes over the Great Salt Lake and picks up the perfect amount of moisture before dropping its fluffy dendrites on the Wasatch Mountains. The resulting Greatest Snow On Earth is what all 6 Ski Utah areas have in common. The subtle differences are detailed below, but know that any of our 14 resorts never disappoint those truly passionate about powder.

Logan Area | resort: Beaver
Home to Utah State University, Logan is an idyllic Northern Utah town cozily nestled within the beautiful Cache Valley. Thirty minutes east from there, just down Highway 89, is Beaver Mountain – the oldest family-owned and-operated resort in North America. Perfect for families with kids.

Ogden Area| resorts: Powder Mountain, Snowbasin, Wolf Mountain
For crazy amounts of untracked powder and nonexistent lift lines, try the Ogden region. Both can be easily found off the beaten path at Powder Mountain, Snowbasin and Wolf Mountain. For a more beaten path, the town of Ogden and its historic 25th street are just 30 minutes away from all the skiing. Stay, dine and play right here.

Salt Lake Area | resorts: Solitude, Brighton, Alta, Snowbird
Big city life and deep powder together in one package. That's the beauty of the Salt Lake area. Be downtown one minute, and up top on Solitude, Brighton, Alta or Snowbird before you know it. All of these resorts feature incredible terrain and over 500 annual inches of The Greatest Snow on Earth®. So go ahead. Have the best of both worlds.

Provo Area | resort: Sundance
Fun to say and as breathtaking as they come, Mt. Timpanogos is home to the famed Sundance Mountain Resort. For a romantic getaway or for incredible dining options, stay on the mountain or make the short journey 20 minutes to Provo – fast becoming famous in its own right as the Silicon Valley of the Rockies.

Park City Area | resorts: Park City, Canyons, Deer Valley
The envy of every other ski town, Park City is a mere 35 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport. Once there, choose between Park City, Canyons and Deer Valley ski resorts. Either way, there's après ski wandering Park City's Main Street with over 100 bars and restaurants.

Southern Utah Area | resorts: Brian Head, Eagle Point
The Greatest Snow on Earth meets red rock at Utah’s two most southern resorts: Eagle Point, Utah's newest ski resort, and Brian Head, Utah's highest. Each just four hours from Salt Lake City International Airport and three hours north of Las Vegas by car. Both laid-back and wonderfully crowd-free.
