Utah is known for a lot of things, but one of the reasons why it is so famous is because of its world-class ski resorts. People come from across the world to experience “The Greatest Snow on Earth,” which Utah is said to have. With 14 different ski resorts to choose from (many of which are less than an hour away from the Salt Lake International airport), tourists can choose a hotel that is close to a cluster of resorts or spend their time experiencing everything that one resort has to offer. These ski resorts are also great destinations in the summer, fall and spring months, as there is always something going on.
Most of these ski resorts are located nearby family entertainment, fabulous dining and exciting nightlife. Year-round, you can get great spa packages at any of the resorts, or book a company conference or retreat with all that the hotels have to offer. If you prefer to not hit the town, there are many ski-in, ski-out facilities that offer everything on-site without you having to do any travelling.
In the off-season months of summer and warmer weather, tourists can enjoy the outdoors by taking advantage of the great hiking trails and biking opportunities. These ski resorts are all-season playgrounds, and there are many exceptional concerts to attend or other warm-weather activities for you and your family to enjoy. Some of the resorts offer zip lining, slides down the mountain, tram rides, bungy trampolines, ATVing, a harnessed ropes course, climbing, horseback tours and more. Fly fishing is incredibly popular, and there are always a variety of sports for those who are so inclined.
The fun doesn’t stop when the weather get’s cloudy—in fact, when the snow hits, these Utah mountains come alive. Some of the resorts are in clusters, as there are three in Park City, four surrounding the east side of Salt Lake and three in Ogden Valley. With the 2002 Olympic Winter Games being hosted here, you can count on the fact that Utah’s ski resorts are up to the challenge of crowds (though you can certainly find resorts that offer all the open space you could need).
After the Olympics, many of the resorts have expanded even further to include more updated facilities, and because they have gained such recognition, you had better believe it that they have a lot to offer in terms of skier satisfaction. From the amenities, hotel accommodations and the snow itself, you can find the challenge and fun you’ve been looking for.
See for yourself what all the fuss is about. Boasting an average of 500 inches of snow throughout the year, Utah is the place to go for skiing fun. Plan your vacation now, and whether you come in the summer or winter, you can experience all that these Utah resorts have to offer. These resorts are close to the airport, so take a SLC airport shuttle and book a room at the hotel of your choosing. Bring the family or come with a group of skiing buddies—you won’t be disappointed.
