Utah: The Greatest Snow on Earth

The rugged mountains of the Wasatch are consistently blanketed with some of the highest annual snowfalls in the country, a feature that drives skiers of all shapes and sizes to Utah to experience true powder skiing. There’s simply no better place to be when it snows.

It all starts in Salt Lake City, where you can get from the airport to 11 different resorts in an hour’s drive or less. This means flying into SLC is by far the easiest and quickest route from cozy-in-your-bed one morning to slashing-up-some-fluffy-Utah-pow that same afternoon.

Scroll down to find out what you can expect from a ski trip to Utah, and why the state is justified in claiming The Greatest Snow on Earth®.
