Woodward Park City Isn't Just for Pros

At first glance can seem a bit intimidating. I get it. The jumps and halfpipe can probably be seen without visual aid from the International Space Station. And there’s a stream of videos from Woodward out there on the internet showing shredders of all disciplines effortlessly tossing progressive tricks into the stratosphere. First impressions can be misleading, however. Yes, you will probably be sharing the slopes with a bonafide X-Games medal contender, but Woodward Park City isn’t just for pr...

The Different Sides of Deer Valley

Everybody’s heard of the Deer Valley Difference. Corduroy that’s the stuff of legends. Ski lodges with food that could make the cut at the finest dining establishments. Attentive staff happy to sweep each snowy chair with smiles on their faces. Without a doubt, The Difference is real, but there’s a lot more to than cruiser groomers and slopeside luxury. In addition to those perfect groomers with panoramic views of the Wasatch Mountains and the Jordanelle Reservoir, you’ll find rock-lined ste...

Backcountry Essentials

Backcountry skiing and snowboarding are booming in popularity. Between pristine, untouched powder and majestic, looming peaks, the backcountry’s appeal is easy to understand. But because of exposure to changing weather and uncontrolled snow and avalanche conditions, backcountry travel is inherently risky. Safety is the responsibility of every backcountry user, and that starts with having the essential gear to travel safely and respond to emergencies, accidents and avalanches. Before we get into...

Socially Distant Skiing? Powder Mountain's Had That For Years.

Powder skiing has always been an escape. Floating silently through crystalline flakes, it’s just you and the mountain. It’s immersive, and now more than ever, a necessary departure from the anxieties of the real world. —as candidly connoted by its name—is already renowned for the copious snow blanketing its slopes, and thanks to its location, layout and the sheer magnitude of its terrain, there’s no resort better positioned to safely provide an escapist powder experience in the uncertain times ...

Opening Day Checklist

The days are getting shorter, the temperature is dropping, and the snow is falling. Get ready to fire up the chairlifts because opening day is just around the corner! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and it’s even sweeter than normal this time since last season was cut unexpectedly short. Because the COVID-19 pandemic continues to hang around and impact our daily lives, the upcoming winter is going to look a little different (see Ski Utah's information about how COVID-19 is impacting th...

In Defense of Weekday Skiing and Snowboarding

Everybody’s working for the weekend. What? That’s a terrible sentiment. That’s only two days out of seven — an awful ratio. And it’s not even Loverboy’s best song. Well, it probably is, but the point remains. What about working for the weekdays, or any day we want for that matter? We can’t let the man dictate how infrequently we should be skiing and snowboarding! It’s time for a weekday skiing renaissance. Let's take back our midweek shred sessions. Midweek skiing and riding isn’t just for sk...

5 Great Utah Fall Getaways

You hear it mentioned in hushed tones by people throughout ski towns. “Shoulder season is coming,” they whisper. The confusion is plain to see in their clothing, a discordant amalgam of winter beanies and puffy jackets paired with flip flops or Chacos. It’s hard to blame them for their consternation as the weather vacillates between the dog days’ dry heat and the season’s first snowfalls, which are oppressively cold to our still thin summer blood. This perplexing mountain season is called fall. ...

Beyond the Chairlift Bucket List

With 15 resorts boasting The Greatest Snow on Earth® scattered throughout the state, Utah is uniquely celebrated among skiers and snowboarders. And it’s no wonder. With a collective 134 chairlifts accessing more than 30,000 acres of terrain, who can blame anyone for assuming little exists beyond what can be accessed from the lifts.However, with a shifted gaze and a widened focus, an altogether different vision of Utah emerges. Whether aided by helicopter, snowcat, snowmobile, gravity or good old...

2020 Utah Ski and Snowboard Movie Premieres

Temps are dropping, the leaves are changing colors, and it has already snowed in the Utah mountains. The time to dust off the skis and snowboards is just around the corner (find Utah's opening dates here), but first we need to hop aboard the winter stoke train by watching some 2020 ski and snowboard movie premieres. You'll never be as hyped about tricks you'll probably never try and lines you'll probably never ski as you are right after watching the pros effortlessly throw down in immaculate con...

5 Fall Mountain Bike Rides for Leaf Peeping in Utah

Let’s just admit that we all love leaf peeping. Sure, we might scoff at the city slickers who drive up a mountain pass only to park in a crowded lot and pose for photos wearing a new scarf and cable-knit sweater, but we’re the very same people who love to snap those ubiquitous handlebar in a tunnel of yellow leaf pictures and post those artsy shots of a single crimson leaf lying next to a tire track in brown pow to our social pages. #Fallshred or #fallline or something along those lines.

Breaking Down The Greatest Snow on Earth®

Settle in at the end of the day at any après ski watering hole at or nearby one of Utah’s 15 mountain resorts, and before long, you’ll hear it: the siren-song tales of sublimely deep and light snow; a snow so addictive that, year after year, hundreds of discarded college diplomas and temporary visits turned decades-long odysseys are left in its wake. The non-believers scoff dismissively. “A myth,” they’ll say. The funny thing about these countless narratives of the fabled Greatest Snow on Earth...

Family Backpacking Getaways Near Salt Lake City

It’s time to get back to the roots of being outside. The #vanlife craze has transformed the once simple joys of camping into a gear-driven lifestyle of competitive overconsumption. Before you peg me as some bitter luddite who can’t afford a tricked-out adventure van (I am), remember that the best part of enjoying the outdoors is actually being outside. So gather the family, load up the backpacks and head into the hills for an overnight backpacking getaway near Salt Lake City. “Whoa, whoa, whoa,...

5 Incredible Fly-Fishing Spots in Utah

Best Utah Mountain Bike Trails to Ride with your Dog

You love mountain biking, and you love your dog. It only seems natural to combine the two and bring your furry four-legged companion—who I’m certain is a very good boy or girl—along for the ride.

Ski Movies to Binge Online While Social Distancing

One day we're out making turns on soft spring snow with a few hundred of our best friends, and the next we're hunkered down in our homes doing our best to responsibly help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. Sorry, that got dark fast. The abrupt way in which the rug was pulled out from under the ski season has my head spinning and left me with a profound longing for some spring skiing and good vibes. Lifts throughout the state are on pause, and cabin fever is starting to set in.  ...

5 Unique Spots to Get a Drink in Utah Mountains

There are plenty of places to get a drink at resorts around Utah, but what makes a spot really stand out? After spending a few days tipping a couple back at numerous haunts around the mountains, things can blend together into a vague, nostalgic haze of walls adorned with retro ski gear and the inert ubiquitous trappings of upscale mountain contemporary decor.  I don’t want to send the wrong message here. I’m not above a $2 macrobrew tallboy from the local dive, a decadent cocktail served with a...

Tag Team Parenting and Skiing

Contrary to the rhetoric you hear from World Cup podium contenders and grizzled backcountry guides, most people don’t actually get on skis before they can walk. It’s a basic consequence of the human development timeline. With my first winter as a parent approaching, I realized there was a substantial period of time still to elapse between having a child and projecting all my unachieved ambitions onto her unsuspecting psyche while teaching her to pizza. My wife and I historically spent the better...

Utah's Hollywood Lines

True legends will always be made under the chairlift. Sure, most of today’s skiing and snowboarding exploits end up circulating on social media. However, there was a time before we all just did it for the ‘Gram. When the only way to narcissistically boost the ego was to give’r the beans in front of as many people as possible in real-time.

Ensuring Utah Skiing's Future

Nirvana is the silent burst of innumerable stellar dendrites. It’s what skiers and snowboarders live for. The Greatest Snow on Earth. There’s a reason we write about it on our license plates.

The uncomfortable irony is our desire to experience the ethereal charms of powder threaten its very existence, and our...
