Plan a Ski Trip to the World Class Resorts and Ski Mountains in Utah

plan a utah ski trip
The powdery snow of Utah is considered by many to be the finest in the world. With over 15 different ski areas and a diverse selection of vacation rentals – and that second-to-none snow – Utah is perfect for a ski vacation. 

Park City

One of the best ski trip destinations is Park City, the gem of the Utah skiing industry. It boasts one of the longest ski seasons in the country. Park City has three different ski resorts: Deer Valley, The Canyons and the Park City Mountain Resort. All three offer beginner to advanced ski lessons, as well as beginner, intermediate, advanced and expert ski slopes.

One reason you might choose Park City is for their “Silver Passport” program, which allows you to ski at all three resorts for one low price. This ticket must be pre-purchased online.

Another advantage is the abundance of vacation rentals nearby. From log cabins to condominiums to luxury villas, Park City is bound to have a vacation rental that's perfect for your trip and close to the mountain you want to ski.

Alta Ski Area

Located just 25 miles from Salt Lake City, the Alta Ski Area is popular for its fresh-powder slopes. If you want the combination of great skiing during the day and diverse city nightlife, Alta is a great choice. Alta lodging is near the ski area here and Snowbird, Brighton and Solitude.

Beaver Mountain

For a smaller ski area, try Beaver Mountain, just west of Bear Lake. Beaver Mountain has a traditional lodge, as well as a cafeteria, lockers and a ski shop that offers rentals. Your best options for lodging here are the vacation rentals located on or near Bear Lake.

Brighton Ski Resort

Thirty miles from downtown Salt Lake City, this resort has consistently been voted the best-value resort with the best terrain for children and families. Some vacation rentals are located right nearby, or you can rent in Salt Lake City and add its diverse nightlife and famous attractions to your getaway.

Snowbasin Ski Resort

This resort consists of over 2,800 acres of groomed terrain specifically designed to fit the needs of all levels of skiers. It, too, is close to Salt Lake City (only 33 miles away).

Snowbird Ski Area

The Snowbird Ski Area is just minutes from Salt Lake City in Little Cottonwood Canyon. This quaint ski village is a sister resort to Alta, each of which has had a turn being named the number one ski resort in North America by Outside magazine.

Solitude Ski Resort

The Solitude Ski Resort, about 30 miles southeast of Salt Lake City, is made up of more than 1,200 acres of land and 64 different ski trails. Solitude provides a wide selection of beginner and intermediate trails and is neighbor to the Brighton Ski Resort.

Sundance Ski Resort

The combination of downhill and cross-country skiing makes this ski destination unique. The Sundance Ski Resort and the Sundance Cross Country Ski Center are located approximately 50 miles south of Salt Lake City. A nice selection of vacation rentals can be found in the immediate vicinity.
