"Utah Homebase for My Skiing Vacation!" Salt Lake City by Jmill42

Salt Lake City Travel Guide: 539 reviews and 1,304 photos

My undergraduate graduation present from my family was a ski/snowboard trip to Utah! My rating of the 4 resorts we went to goes like this: 1) Solitude 2) Snowbird 3)Snowbasin 4) Canyons. Solitude is awesome, no lines great slopes for every level. The Canyons sucked so hard we left early! Snowbird rocked with great slopes, but a little on the crowded side. Definitely worth it, though. Snowbasin probably would have been higher on my list but it was a long drive from where we stayed in Salt Lake.

My Favorite Utah Resort

Solitude resort was my favorite out of the bunch that we went to. It didn't have the best runs, but it definitely lived up to its name. No one was there! You had your own slopes 75% of the time. That and the atmosphere made it my choice.

    Solitude is my favorite as well. This was also the 1st place I went after my freak accident.
