Utah Deals for President's Day Weekend

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.

Fueling Change: Skiing In a Weak Economy

Rising fuel prices are altering the economics of the great American ski vacation, as skiers and resorts cope with the increased costs of flying and driving.

Harriet and Jerry Warner are waving goodbye to an old traveling companion this winter—their skis. “We’re renting this season,” Harriet Warner says, “for the first time in about 30 years.”

The reason: new airline fees of up to $150 for checked baggage. The Somerset, N.J., couple determined it would cost $500 or more to fly two pairs of skis on their five trips this winter. The fees prompted the Warners to forgo purchasing new skis. “We realized it didn’t make sense to spend almost $2,000 on new equipment and then have to pay these ridiculous fees to bring it.”
