We all hear about how much faster you can get to the slopes by flying in to Salt Lake City International Airport than anywhere else in the country, but now you can watch this video and really see what it looks like.
Utah has fourteen resorts total, with eleven being in the immediate (with an hours drive or so) Salt Lake City area. The closest resort to the airport is Canyons Resort (35 minutes), and Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley. The I-80 freeway with 3 and 4 lanes of traffic do make a difference since it is a direct route to the airport.
Park City, Utah has these three world-class ski resorts as well as being a full fledged town, so that when you are finished with skiing you have options off the mountain when it comes to entertainment, dining, groceries, etc. Although the other ski resorts in the area, namely, Snowbird, Alta, Solitude and Brighton all get more snow each year, and it sticks longer. Either way, you can’t go wrong coming to Utah for skiing if you want to save time in your car and have a fantastic mountain experience.
Of course, we in Park City, Utah enjoy our town and all it has to offer all four seasons of the year, including mountain biking, hiking, golf, cycling and fishing to name but a few activities.
