Outdoor Recreation in Salt Lake

Head West of Conventional and you find yourself in Salt Lake – the perfect base camp to adventure. Hiking and biking escapes are just a few minutes from the city in local canyons. Nearby national parks and monuments are only a day-trip away. Elevate your fun exploring the desert by hot-air balloon. Or see the forest on horseback. Then get a view of North America’s saltiest lake by boat or from the air.

Salt Lake is the kind of place where you can ski in the morning and golf in the afternoon. In the winter, activities include snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and, of course, skiing and snowboarding at nearby resorts. Year-round adventure? You can find fishing and wildlife expeditions, guest ranch stays, and river and outdoor adventures. As the center where alpine mountains, arid desert and the Great Salt Lake meet, the valley is home to birdwatching areas too.
