3. SnowbirdSnowbird Ski Resort is near Salt Lake City and is a great place to run the slopes as it is not controlled by the Forest Service. This means that as long as there is snow here, it is open! This place is best for experienced skiers as most of the terrain is rugged and very steep. There are places for beginners here, but the areas are limited. The North face of the mountain gets the freshest powder and makes it a better area to ski on. The lifts are efficient, and Snowbird is a smaller resort that is not packed by city tourists. Ticket prices for half-day at Snowbird is $123 for adults and $62 for youth during peak season. Prices are subject to change but you can save and buy them discounted online.
