Go skiing in Salt Lake City

By Martin McAllister

If you're interested in finding an action packed adventure holiday, there are few more enjoyable options than skiing. Skiing is one of the most popular winter sports in the world, and provides excellent enjoyment for people of all ages; so whether you're planning to vacation with your family, go on a fun holiday with your friends or escape on a romantic holiday for two, skiing holidays are sure to provide fun and games. Moreover, the United States is full of fantastic skiing locations - Salt Lake City, Utah, for example.

The Wasatch Mountains in Salt Lake City provide the area's most popular skiing spots, and eight ski resorts lie within 50 miles of the city. These are: Alta, Brighton, Solitude and Snowbird, which are located to the southeast of Salt Lake City, as well as Deer Valley, The Canyons and Park City Resort, which are situated in the east. Additionally, the Sundance ski resort, owned by Robert Redford and the location of the annual Sundance Film Festival, is located to the southeast in Utah County. Out of all these resorts, only Alta and Deer Valley play host solely to skiers; the others allow both skiing and snowboarding. So, if you choose to indulge in Salt Lake City's range of winter sports, you're guaranteed to have a good time!

You even have confirmation from the professionals that Salt Lake City's ski resorts are top quality. In 2002, Salt Lake City hosted the Winter Olympics; since this event, the popularity of the region's ski slopes has increased by almost 29 per cent. And, if you do decide to visit Salt Lake City's ski resorts, you'll be able to buy a Ski Salt Lake Super Pass, which allows you to ski at a different resort every day during your stay in Salt Lake City.

Furthermore, there is plenty of accommodation in and around Salt Lake City, so you won't be stuck for a place to stay - regardless of whether you're travelling as a couple or in a large group.
