UTAH, the Home of the Greatest Snow on Earth ®
Utah has 6 ski regions and 14 resorts from which to choose. So if you prefer the “steep and deep” or world class groomers, you WILL find them in Utah.
If you prefer the Salt Lake Metro area, Solitude and Brighton in Big Cottonwood Canyon, and Alta and Snowbird in Little Cottonwood Canyon await. Near Brighton is the Silver Fork Lodge for great old-time comfort and FAB food. Salt Lake Metro B & B’s are also close and offer easy access. Wildflowers B & B, Castle Creek Inn, and the Ellerbeck Mansion are all just a short drive “up the canyon” to skiing. OR try the UTA Ski BUS – and leave the driving to someone else.
In Park City, Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons provide a variety of experiences.
The Old Town Guest House is the only B & B “in town”, but if you prefer a more rural visit, or wish to cross country ski or snowmobile, then the Woodland Farmhouse Inn is a terrific choice. In Midway, the Blue Boar Inn is a luxurious alternative.
Though often thought of more for golf, the southern part of Utah also has some great skiing. Brian Head has recently expanded, and new resort Eagle Point, in Beaver, UT, is nearby. The Amid Summer’s Inn in Cedar City is a perfect place to stay for your southern Utah ski vacation.
Skiutah.com is the go-to site for all things skiing in Utah. Follow them on facebook and twitter for last minutes news and ski reports.
Don’t forget that snow also means cross country skiing, snow shoeing, and snowmobiling. Many Utah State Parks, county recreation areas, and mountain resorts have established trail systems. Ask your Bed and Breakfast Inns of Utah member innkeeper for more information. They may even share their own favorite “powder stash”, or hidden trail with you.
