Every winter, Salt Lake transforms itself into Ski City, Utah’s urban gateway to the Greatest Snow on Earth. From vibrant downtown Ski City, it’s just a 30-minute drive to Alta, Brighton, Snowbird, and Solitude, four of North America’s greatest mountain resorts, each one averaging 500” of Utah powder each winter.
Ski City is one of the most unique and extraordinary ski destinations in the world, an urban basecamp for skiers and riders who’ve come to enjoy the winter playground of the Wasatch Mountains. There’s lodging that’s affordable and family-friendly for all budgets, thanks to the 19,000+ rooms throughout the valley. While après ski and dining have new restrictions this year, there are still cafes, brewpubs, bars, and dining options that are open. Not surprisingly, the pandemic has brought a host of new rules and considerations this year. Go to Visit Salt Lake for COVID-19 restrictions and updates.
