Planning A Utah Ski Vacation?

If you are planning a ski vacation either as a couple or with your family you have to check out the options in Ogden Valley which puts you minutes away from three ski resorts, Snowbasin, Powder Mountain, and Wolf Mountain (great night-skiing). says, “Powder Mountain is on the brink of a huge transformation … and Snowbasin might be the biggest secret in all of North America.”

Here’s what other people are saying about the great opportunities on the slopes:

“I think UT is probably the best place for skiing in North America.  That’s a bold statement I know, but I’ve never found anywhere that can claim our terrain AND snow quality..I had season passes for two years for “the basin” where I spent many a weekday skiing nothing but powder.”  (Source:

“Skiing Powder – This is a mountain that lives up to its name, which is no surprise, considering which state it is in. The best thing about this Powder Mountain is the fact that nobody goes there and they do get almost as much snow as the Little Cottonwood Canyon.” (Source:

“Wolf Mountain, formerly known as Nordic Valley, is not typically considered a major threat to its neighboring ski resorts, but perhaps is should be. It has an amazing variety of terrain in a mere 85 skiable acres and the entire resort is open for night-time skiing and snowboarding.” (Source:
