Utah ski country begins just beyond the limits of Salt Lake City and extends throughout the Wasatch Mountain Range, including legendary ski areas like Emigration Canyon and Snowbird. The slopes here are truly world class, and the pristine runs and luxury facilities draw serious skiers from all over the world every winter. The best way to enjoy everything this area has to offer is by staying in a vacation rental. Find a condo in the city or a quiet cabin in the mountains and let the vacation adventures begin.
A vacation rental is often less expensive than a hotel and can offer luxury amenities like a living room and gourmet kitchen. Vacation rentals provide the space you need to store your outdoor gear and the privacy you need to relax and plan the day's adventures at your own pace. Salt Lake and the surrounding wilderness areas are beautiful during any season of the year, and vacation rental options are always widely available.
Here are a few suggestions as you plan your trip:
-Visit the Salt Lake Public Library: This enormous complex was constructed during the 2001 Winter Olympics and offers cafes, shops, art galleries, and a glittering central corridor that functions as a strolling area and gathering spot.
-Visit the Great Salt Lake: This lake is an indispensible stop on the great American road trip. Take a dip and see how easy it is to float on the surface.
-Visit Temple Square: Explore the home of the iconic Mormon Temple and the dome shaped Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
-Hike the trails: Go hiking or mountain biking along the trails that wind through the foothills of the Wasatch Mountain Range. These trails are perfect for camping, rock climbing, and wildlife spotting.
-Visit Red Butte Gardens: Located close to the city limits, these magnificent botanical gardens are an extension of the University of Utah and are open to the public for tours.
-Go horseback riding: During the summer, there's no better way to explore the Wasatch Mountains than with a guided trail ride.
Find a vacation rental high in the mountains to get away from it all, or find a trendy condo downtown close to world class restaurants and energetic nightspots. No matter where you decide to stay or what you decide to do, you'll ever forget your trip to Utah ski country. While you're here, you may also want to head south to red rock country and explore the national parks of Arches and Moab.
