Ski Resorts Near Salt Lake City & The Wasatch

As soon as the snow falls, Salt Lake City starts to feel like one big ski town. You’ll Get More Mountain Time™ here, with eleven ski resorts less than an hour from the city. If not slopeside, basecamp in Salt Lake City, Ogden, Park City, Heber Valley or Provo. 

Northern Utah Resorts

For skiers and riders looking for less crowded slopes, a more affordable lift ticket, and small-town charm the northern resorts are tough to beat. Basecamp in Logan or Garden City. 

Southern Utah Resorts

Visit Utah’s southern ski resorts for acres of fresh powder and one of a kind red rock scenery. Basecamp in Brian Head or Cedar City. 

Choosing Where to Ski

The truth is, all resorts are great for many of the same things, and once you're on the slopes riding the Greatest Snow on Earth it's hard to tell too much of a difference. But if we had to make some "known for" generalizations, here's the list:

  • Alta — Known for its powder and skier's only traditional attitude (sorry snowboarders)
