Notable Cities: Salt Lake City, Park City, Brian Head
As a world-renowned skiing destination and home to five national parks with rock formations that defy reason, Utah’s beauty knows no bounds. Global Discovery Vacations offers resorts in the cozy ski town of Park City, just outside of Salt Lake City, and resorts on the rugged south side of the state in Brian Head. Both destinations offer travelers the chance to explore the wonders of nature and some other unique experiences as well. Prep for your trip to Utah by getting to know some of the popular attractions and available resorts.
Utah’s powder snow is unmatched and is often regarded as the “Greatest Snow on Earth.” It doesn’t really matter which ski resort you visit between Deer Valley Resort, Park City Mountain Resort or Canyons Resort, you will have pristine conditions and an unforgettable ride. Keep your options open whenever you come across an enticing activity beyond skiing and snowboarding, such as snowmobiling, tubing and sleigh riding.
When you’re done with the mountains, Salt Lake City is less than an hour away, so you have the capital city’s attractions to explore as well.

Much like its southern neighbor Arizona, Utah boasts some incredible mountains and slot canyons for unlimited and scenic hiking opportunities. We’re not sure what comes to mind when you first think of Utah, but these stunning landscapes should be atop the list: Bryce Canyon, Zion, Canyonlands, Arches and Capitol Reef. The canyons have so much depth and definition to them, so be mindful of when you visit as the early evening shadows can reveal awesome photo opportunities. Each park contains its own hidden treasures, such as Kanarraville Falls, Spring Creek and Kolob Canyon. The only way to truly comprehend all this area has to offer is to see it for yourself.
