Ski City has been hammered with over 4 feet of The Greatest Snow On Earth® in the past week, and more storms are on the way. It’s time to use those sick days and flyer miles because Salt Lake is experiencing an iconic Utah storm pattern. And it’s time to get the goods while the getting is good.

Lap life-changing powder and experience the burgeoning urban scene of Ski City when the lifts stop turning. Hit up an NBA game, catch a Broadway performance and indulge in our award-winning food and libation scene—The Greatest Snow On Earth® is really only the tip of the iceberg in Ski City.

Here are a few insider tips for planning a trip to Ski City: 


As much as we deny it, most of us find ourselves needing a down day after three or four consecutive days of zooming around in the powder. In addition to four legendary resorts, Ski City has over 1700 restaurants, 140 bars, and 19 unique neighborhoods, not to mention performing arts, shopping, live music and pro sports to make every day an awesome experience, whether you're on or off the mountain.

The Super Pass is your golden ticket to everything Ski City has to offer. With a Super Pass in hand, you save on direct-to-lift access to the resort(s) of your choosing—Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude. This means no lift-ticket windows and more freedom to ski it all. You’ll also save up to 40 percent on ski rentals. When the ski day is over, your Super Pass gets you a free ride on TRAX light rail and UTA ski buses, so you can transition seamlessly to the city’s après scene.
