Prices plummet as snow totals climb at Utah ski resorts.
SALT LAKE CITY, UT - February 13, 2009 - A streak of winter storms has pummeled Utah ski and snowboard resorts creating epic conditions for President's Day snowriders. In addition to healthy helpings of The Greatest Snow on Earth, Utah resorts are offering exceptional discounts on spring skiing starting now throughout the remaining season. Recent "airfare wars" have lowered many fares in/out of Salt Lake City International Airport, less than an hour drive from 11 Utah ski resorts. There has never been a better time to take a ski trip to Utah than now.
Why settle for one resort when you can ski six in one day? A backcountry jaunt through the Wasatch’s best, and least-skied, terrain.
Take your right hand and make a fist, thumb-side up, like you’re dropping rock in a game of rock-paper-scissors. That fist makes a rough map of a patch of Wasatch containing some of Utah’s best skiing. Your index finger is Little Cottonwood Canyon, home to Alta and Snowbird. Wrapping around that is the thumb of Big Cottonwood, where Brighton and Solitude sit. Your thumb’s knuckle is Park City Mountain Resort, its tip Deer Valley.
