No one ever said that putting an entire family on a plane for a ski vacation was a small feat, but in terms of Airport ease and resort proximity we'll let someone else do the talking for us.
• Travel and Leisure just named Salt Lake City International Airport the BEST airport in the U.S., based upon the fewest delays in the country. Basically, if you fly into Salt Lake City International airport you will rarely be delayed in making your powder day appointments.
• Utah resorts just landed the top 8 spots in SKI magazine's 2015 Access Rankings. Based on these rankings, you won't be surprised to know that eleven resorts are just an hour’s drive from the airport. And when we say an hour, we mean 60 minutes. Not the 100-plus miles of clogged freeway between the airport and mountains elsewhere.
Direct flights from more than 80 U.S. cities arrive here every day.
Salt Lake International Airport to Snowbird
Real-time video shows how long it actually takes to get from passengar pick-up at the SLC airport to the top of the Tram at Snowbird, geared up and ready to ski.
But how can I get around without renting a car?
