Salt Lake City’s Cottonwood Canyons deliver the goods all winter and summer too. As the mountain snow melts, locals lace up their trail running shoes and hiking boots. If you plan a visit to this section of Utah during the summer, there are a few trails you shouldn’t miss.

Everyone comes to Utah to ski in the winter, but the summers and fall are amazing!! Especially late summer when the snow has finally melted and you can get up to the ridgetops and see the wonderful scenery. Catherines Pass lies between Alta and Brighton and I've done it for years. Now, my daughter Emily joins the tradition...her first pass to 10,500'

OK, this is a ski blog...but I'm going to say I LOVE summer in the Wasatch. The smells, the flowers, the hiking, the moose. Yes, lots of wildlife spotting here. And...the crowds are down. I'm just going to come out and say it...I love hiking and I'm a much better hiker than skier. I take pride in the 4-10 mile hikes I can do and still be standing at the end. With that said...my kids have become (or are forced) to be great hikers as well.
