Utah’s claim to have the greatest snow on earth is not universally accepted, but it has some science behind it, and there are very few ski resorts in the world that can match Snowbird and Alta for ‘steep’n’deep’ powder. And there is certainly nowhere in America that has as large a lift-linked ski area as nearby Park City, and few ski resorts that are as classy as Deer Valley.
But these and the other resorts around Salt Lake City have always been difficult for UK based skiers to reach. The problem was not in the transfer from the airport to the resort because all the resorts are only a short drive away. Instead it was the long and complicated journey tfrom the UK to Salt Lake International Airport because although there were direct flights from London, they stopped for the winter just when the ski season started.
The good news for powder-loving UK skiers is that that from 1st Jan 2020 (and hopefully for years to come), Delta is reinstating its nonstop direct LHR to SLC service through the winter.
So if you want to see if Utah really does have the greatest snow on earth, this is a good time to do it. And if you want to see what all the fuss is about, please read:
