With over 10 ski resorts located throughout the state of Utah, it can be difficult to choose the perfect one for your visit. The perfect resort is dependent on many factors: your snow preferences, whether you ski or snowboard, pass costs. To start your search for the perfect resort in Utah, check out the list of the best resorts for skiers and snowboarders.

For years, Vail Resorts has dominated business across the ski industry. This success is partially due to the introduction of the Epic Pass in 2008. With the Epic Pass, guests are given unlimited access to every Vail resort over the course of the season. The introduction of a multi-resort season pass was revolutionary in the ski industry, allowing for greater exposure to a wider variety of resorts around the country.

With Park City and Snowbasin as the only Utah ski resort offerings in the Epic Pass, Utah was left open as a large area of opportunity for the ski pass business model. This changed in 2018, with Alterra Mountain launching the Ikon Pass, including five Utah resorts among their offerings. Ikon Pass holders have the option to visit Deer Valley, Solitude, Brighton, Alta, and Snowbird, among over 20 other resorts around the world. We have dedicated a post with the ins and outs for Alta, check it out here!

It is undeniable that both of these ski passes have great value for anyone looking to ski more than a couple days out of the season. However, for the skier visiting Utah, the value may be greater in the Ikon Pass. With five Utah resorts within its offerings, pass holders can get the full ski Utah experience, taking in all the variety that Utah’s resorts have to offer. While you’re visiting, you can also check out some of Salt Lake’s best nightlife. But, no matter which pass or mountains you choose to explore, Utah promises to give you some of the best snow on Earth.
