Ski Things Differently, Ski Salt Lake

Published: 11/14/2006

Simply put, Salt Lake is the most accessible winter metropolitan destination in the nation, if not the world. This celebrated Olympic city and its four world-class resorts—Alta, Brighton, Solitude and Snowbird—offer visitors the ability to create memories to last a lifetime.

The four resorts of Ski Salt Lake are blessed with The Greatest Snow on Earth.™ A fortunate combination of geological and climatology features makes our powder snowfall the driest, fluffiest, most skiable snow in the world—literally, different by nature. In fact, national skier surveys consistently rank Salt Lake’s mountain resorts at the top for snow quality and quantity. You just have to experience it for yourself. It’s dry, light and plentiful to say the least—in an average season, Ski Salt Lake’s resorts each receive over 500 inches, almost twice the amount of the resorts on the other side of the Rockies, while Alta had a whopping 638 inches just last season.

And to make skiing and riding the area’s resorts simple, the incredibly convenient Ski Salt Lake Super Pass allows visitors to ski a different Ski Salt Lake resort every day during their stay in Salt Lake. The Super Pass, an easy-to-use card, may be redeemed for an all-day lift ticket at Alta, Brighton, Snowbird or Solitude. As an added bonus, the Ski Salt Lake Super Pass includes round-trip travel on UTA city buses, ski buses and TRAX light-rail. In other words, visitors can save time and money, and ski when and where the want. The Super Pass can be loaded with one to six days of skiing or riding and is valid for a seven-day period once it’s activated. Convenience has never been easier.

Ski Salt Lake is the Winter Marketing arm of the Salt Lake Convention & Visitors Bureau.  Its mission is to attract winter enthusiasts to Salt Lake by combining the attributes of the four Salt Lake County Resorts and the Salt Lake Valley into attractive and affordable packages that we can promote, market, & sell.
