Greatest Snow on Earth

For those living in the Midwest, you may not think of Utah as your first destination for skiing and snowboarding. Maybe I can change your mind. If you are looking to save time, money, while still riding some of the most fun terrain in the U.S., this is the place for you. There is an ease and convenience to landing in Salt Lake City and spending your time in the Wasatch Mountains. SLC International airport is located in the valley only about 40 mins from the mountains. Therefore, you can land, rent a car and be riding the slopes within an hour of arriving. Impressive, right? Also, there is a reason the license plates in Utah read, ‘Greatest Snow on Earth’. The snow here in Utah is unlike any place in the world. it is a light, dry snow and it accumulates fast. Even though Ken and I only make it out here once a year, we have experienced countless days of 12 inches of fresh snow, nights in a row… can’t beat that! Additionally, the mixture of terrain the Wasatch and resort provide - from aggressive cliffs to rolling mountain slopes, you can accomplish anything here. Get out to Utah and get ready to experience the powder, blue bird days, open runs, and the greatest snow on earth!
While in Utah this trip we spent 3 full days at 3 different resorts. We played at our favorite place, Brighton; when you get to the top of the mountain you are well above the clouds. It is one of the most beautiful views ever. The second day was spent at Solitude, which is sentimental to both Ken and I since this is where he proposed to me. And our third day was spent exploring Snowbasin together for the first time. Each day was unique in it’s own way and was incredible each run down.
