15 Best Skiing Spots in Utah!

It’s no secret that Utah offers world-class skiing. A dry climate and wicked peaks make for large quantities of powdery snow every winter that not only keep tourists coming back year after year, but that make permanent residents out of supposedly one-time visitors. With such a wide selection of top-notch ski resorts, skiing possibilities in Utah can feel endless. Not sure where to start? This list of the 15 best skiing spots in Utah will help you narrow in on the best option for you.

Park City Mountain, Park City, UT

Formerly the two separate ski resorts of Park City and The Canyons, Park City Mountain is a sprawling winter wonderland that suits both the pros and novices. This resort is perfect if you’re enthralled by the idea of never skiing the same run twice.

Snowbird, Sandy, UT

An industrial mountain paradise, Snowbird is nestled in Little Cottonwood Canyon and is especially famous for its hefty supply of mid-winter powder and challenging terrain. That said, although this resort offers something for beginners, it is better suited for experienced skiers.

Deer Valley, Park City, UT

Arguably Utah’s fanciest ski resort, Deer Valley makes for some luxurious, high-quality skiing. Frequented by celebrities and skiers of all abilities, Deer Valley is expensive but worth the price tag.

Alta Ski, Salt Lake City, UT

Alta’s reputation is hard to beat. Why? On top of its word-class terrain, it’s a resort exclusive to skiers, which automatically makes it pretty exclusive. The good news? Its exclusivity doesn’t mean anything in terms of what it offers for skiers of all levels: incredible runs compounded by show-stopping views.

Solitude, Salt Lake City, UT

Located in Big Cottonwood Canyon, Solitude really does offer skiers solitude, especially in contrast to other comparable resorts. With a European style village at its base, Solitude feigns intimacy though it really is massive in its offerings.

Sundance, Provo, UT

Owned by the famous actor Robert Redford, Sundance Resort is isolated from the crowds of Park City and though it also offers less terrain, makes for a lovely and old-fashioned skiing experience for the whole family.

Brighton, Salt Lake City, UT

Another solid resort, Brighton is as well known for its downhill skiing as it is for its cross-country skiing. Many are loyal Brighton skiers and one trip to the resort will have you understanding why.

Beaver Mountain, Logan, UT

Beaver Mountain Resort—located North of Salt Lake City near Logan, Utah—is the quintessential resort for beginning skiers. With a friendly atmosphere, far from intimidating, this resort is perfect for families.

Brian Head, Cedar City, UT

Brian Head is truly one of a kind. Located in Utah’s red rock country, the scenery feels a bit supernatural and simply by way of its natural beauty, the resort offers its visitors an unforgettable skiing experience.

Nordic Valley, Eden, UT

An extremely affordable skiing experience, Nordic Valley is a great fit for young families looking to introduce their kids to skiing but uninterested in spending too much money. With a terrain park and enough terrain to keep any skier satisfied, this resort is a budget and family friendly option.

Eagle Point, Beaver, UT

Situated in a seemingly unlikely Southern Utah location, Eagle Point is neighbors with Brian Head. The difference? Eagle Point boasts less red rock and more challenging runs.

Snowbasin, Huntsville, UT

Although it’s relatively unknown in comparison to high-profile Utah resorts, Snowbasin has a cult following, with some even touting it as the best professionally run ski resort in the United States.

Soldier Hollow, Midway, UT

One of the locations for the 2002 Olympics cross-country skiing events, Soldier Hollow in Midway, Utah offers immaculately groomed cross-country trails and day passes at relatively cheap rates.

Ruby’s Inn, Bryce Canyon National Park, UT

Downhill skiing in generic red rock country may be scenic, but how about cross-country skiing in Bryce Canyon National Park? The cross-country skiing offered through Ruby’s Inn at Bryce Canyon is worth at least a weekend winter road trip down south.

Mountain Dell Golf Course, Salt Lake City, UT

Located in Salt Lake City’s Parley’s Canyon, Mountain Dell offers fresh track for cross-country skiing daily. If you’re looking for a workout on skis, this is the place to be.
