Resort by resort, here's what's happening on Utah's snow.

With the down economy, there are fewer major terrain expansions and new lifts being installed nationwide as most ski resorts focus on their core services, such as customer care and snow quality. Here are resort-by-resort improvements for next season compiled by Ski Utah.

Ski Utah Interconnect Tour

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.
