A humble brag from Utah’s ski industry is the accessibility. We scream far and wide and tell anyone who will listen about the ease of travel; with Salt Lake City International Airport just five miles from downtown SLC and within an hour of 10-world class ski resorts, Utah offers the unique opportunity to fly-in and ski in the same day.


There are approximately 370 scheduled departures from SLC each day, serving nearly 98 cities with nonstop flights - as a major Delta Air Lines hub the options are endless. Between Canada, the US, and Mexico Delta offers over 40 (and counting) non-stop flights from big cities like Boston, New York, Los Angeles and smaller markets like Spokane, Jackson Hole, Los Cabos, Omaha, and Memphis. Every region is accessible by a Delta flight! Executive Director of Salt Lake City International Airport, Bill Wyatt, reports Delta is making additional big steps for visiting skiers and riders, “working with resorts to allow customers to check their oversized bag at the resort. It’ll be delivered sometime during the night to the airport, go through the checked bag area, and the skier will see their bag when they arrive at their destination”.

The best part? Amazing deals from Ski Utah partners and Delta! Park City Area Lodging Association will give you a $300 Delta gift card just for staying 3-nights or more at participating locations. Stay at CooperWynn Property Management (formerly Identity Properties) properties throughout Park City, or take advantage of this deal for ski-in/ski-out private homes and condominiums with the Deer Valley Resort Collection.


Utah’s welcoming nature, The Greatest Snow on Earth®, beautiful mountain backdrop, great deals, and ease of travel make it the best option for your ski and snowboard vacation. With Salt Lake City International Airport close to a plethora of world-class ski resorts and non-stop options from Delta, you won’t find a destination with more ease than Utah.
