Experience Some Amazing Skiing in Utah
For the experienced skier, there are probably many resorts all over North America and Canada that you would say are good places to ski. Many will have thriving tourist attractions and provide some perfect ski runs.
However, there are more than the obvious choices when it comes to sliding down a mountain. One such place is Utah, which might not be the obvious choice for many. It is true to say that from a tourist perspective, they get far fewer visitors than somewhere like Colorado. However, they do have some amazing slopes, and they also have some beautiful places to stay.
Utah is determined to become a bigger ski resort, and they have ideas that could make them just that. They want to make the biggest linked ski area in the United States. It will be some feat, but they have fifteen resorts that are all scattered around Salt Lake. If they manage to succeed, they will have 18,000 acres of skiable area.
If this were to be successful, then it would certainly be a big draw for all those who like to have a big area to do their skiing.
The nearby Deer Valley, Park City is an amazing place that offers some luxurious accommodation. The vacation rentals and deer valley lodging options that are on offer mean you and your family can stay here while you take to the slopes.
It is even a place that you can visit all year round. Although this part of Utah is known for its winter activities, there are many things you can do in the summer months. It means that you could make this your regular holiday resort.
Park City is both a ski resort and a town; there are many amazing pistes that you can ski along with numerous fun parks. Some of the runs around the Jupiter and Motherlode lifts are made up entirely of double black diamond runs. Although these are tricky, for the experienced skier they pose a wonderful opportunity.
You can ski among the old mine shafts and machinery where you can get a real sense of the wild. You can ski down to the town itself and browse the bookstore and the other cowboy shops. The old mining town has plenty of charm and tradition along with a few ghost stories.
There is also a Canyon resort that has easier fun slopes for those that are newer to skiing than the rest. It boasts avenues of birch trees that look stunning as the fly past. There is also some steep expert runs for the more adventurous.
Utah has certainly been seeking more skiing tourists, and the efforts they have gone to in order to attract the winter holidaymakers has been extensive.
If you are looking for some nice slopes suitable for beginners, intermediates and professionals, and beautiful, luxury accommodation just a few minutes away, then this part of the country could be the perfect resort.
