Utah in the Spring? If you don't score late season powder you are almost sure to score at least one warm blue bird sunny day with fantastic groomers top to bottom.

Salt Lake has been expensive lately so $214 is 50% off the average $400 round trip.

Great fares out of Philly ($214s+), good fares out of Albany ($250s+) and decent deals out of NJ/NY ($270s+), all round-trip flights, mostly direct. I know guys who won't even ride unless it's Utah, and those same guys strongly prefer the late season riding.

Ski and Snowboard

I had one of my top five all time days at Brighton years back. Seems like it might be time to get back out there. Here's one from next door Solitude:

Here's a video from the guys at Dragon from a couple years back, Utah isn't just about back country.

Downhill Skateboard / Longboard

One of the little known facts is that Salt Lake City is one of the best longboard / downhill cities in the country (if not the world). Lots of backcountry exploring to be had.

Fantastic public transport doesn't just make it easier to get up to the canyons without a rental car, it also creates a daily, year round, lift for anyone riding four wheels downhill in and around the city.


Every time I go it feels like I bring more boards. Some of the nooks and crannies in this video make me think my street stick will be part of the quiver next time around. Plus as mentioned above, lots of slope means less pushing.
