Ski Trip to Salt Lake City Utah

I’ve been skiing in the East Coast for almost three years now, but it is more like ice skating out here. It doesn’t compare to the snow and slopes they have in Utah – where greens are more like blues and blues are blacks. Whether you’re an avid skier or just looking for a fun winter getaway, I would encourage you to take a trip to Salt Lake City!

Helpful Information:

Best Time to visit Utah for skiing: Late January to mid-March

Ski Trial/Slopes Rating:

  • Green – The easiest trails to ski
  • Blue – Intermediate trails that are steeper than beginner trails. Used more for advancing beginners and intermediate skiers
  • Black Diamond – Difficult trails for advanced skiers 
  • Double Black Diamond – Extremely difficult trails that are recommended only for expert skiers

Ski Resorts:Ski Trip to Salt Lake City, Utah

We went to Solitude Mountain Resort, which was a perfect time to go since it snowed the day before so the runs were nice and smooth. Try and get there early because parking is not easy to find.

If you’re a beginner, you should stay on the bunny slopes for a few hours before hitting the greens. When you’re ready head to the Moonbeam lift, most of the greens are located there. Make sure to pay attention to the signs because the greens also connect to the blues trails. Ski Trip to Salt Lake City Utah

Yes, I was scared the first time I went down the green, especially since I was unfamiliar with the trail. You have to pay attention to the maps to know where we’re going. After 5 hours of skiing and freezing my butt off – it was time to eat. Ski Trip to Salt Lake City Utah

I got the Tonkotsu Ramen(creamy pork flavor) for $8.95. It was my first time Japanese Ramen noodles and it will not be my last. It might not as appealing to some people, but it is a must try!

This is a famous burger place in Utah, that everyone says is a must before you leave so we had to check it out. I got the crown burger ($5.95) with pastrami – yes! Random but it was good. 

Until next time Utah!
