The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) provides seasonal ski bus service to and from Alta, Brighton, Snowbird, and Solitude. Service for the winter season usually runs from December through April. While the ski bus doesn't serve the Salt Lake City Airport directly, the UTA TRAX light rail can take you straight from the airport to a nearby ski-bus stop.

Ski Bus service for the 2023-24 season begins November 26, 2023 and ends on April 13, 2024.
