Welcome to “The Greatest Snow on Earth” and the Mecca for alpine sports. The high mountains, low humidity, and storms that gather strength over the warm Salt Lake make fantastic light powdery snow at Utah ski resorts. Utah's world famous Snowbird Ski Resort has been named the number 1 ski resort in the United States by SKIING Magazine for the last 5 years and Park City hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics Games. Utah has a total of 12 world class ski resorts, most of which are located within one hour of the Salt Lake City International Airport. For more information and daily snow reports visit SkiUtah.com.
