Winter is here. And that means it’s time for Utah meteorologists and lift operators to start repeating themselves—another day, another snowstorm. Winter has coated Utah in The Greatest Snow on Earth®, and there’s even more in the forecast. If you’ve been here before, you know what everyone’s talking about—you dive into a fresh blanket of light, fluffy powder, and time slows as you float down the mountain. And if you’ve never skied or ridden powder, it’s time to learn—you’ll come to live for big snow alerts just like the rest of us.

Find out what makes Utah’s snow so irresistible.

It doesn’t take long to get to the slopes, either: 10 of Utah’s 14 resorts are within one hour of Salt Lake City International Airport, so you’ll be slope-side while skiers and riders in other states are still stuck in traffic. Dropping in for a quick weekend of the steepest and deepest? You can go for a morning swim in knee-deep powder at one or more of Ski City’s four resorts (SnowbirdAlta,  Solitude or Brighton), then spend the afternoon carving up fast groomers at Deer Valley or Park City Mountain  and maybe even take the scenic drive past Mount Timpanogos over to Robert Redford’s Sundance Mountain Resort.  Either way, you’ll want to leave time to explore Park City (here’s an itinerary to show you how) and the luxurious-to-budget-friendly range of amazing restaurants, bars, and cultural hotspots in Salt Lake City.

The Ogden Valley, 45 minutes north of Salt Lake, delivers another unique-yet-still-Utah vibe with three resorts of its own, ranging from the Olympic-caliber downhill of Snowbasin Resort to the cat skiing of Powder Mountain. There are many resorts so close by, so you can always make More Mountain TimeTM, even if you’re only visitingfor the weekend.

If you’re looking to get off the beaten path and want some wide-open powder to yourself, head north to Cherry Peak and Beaver Mountain or visit southern Utah and sample Eagle Point and Brian Head.  

No matter where you go, you’ll be on Mountain TimeTM in Utah. So, gear up and get to the slopes. The faster you get here, the more uncarved and fluffy, floatable powder you’ll get to enjoy.
