The western state of Utah is welcoming, exciting and diverse. It’s a place of extremes; think sun-scorched red rock landscapes and snow so thick and fluffy it’s called ‘The Greatest Snow on Earth’. With 14 ski resorts, the ‘Mighty Five’ national parks and the sophisticated Salt Lake City, it’s an irresistible mix of adventure, history and culture.
Things to do
Park City’s luxurious resorts offer dazzling views of snow-topped mountains, so pack your finest boards, skis and layers for a winter trip of a lifetime – its ski resorts and peaks are regarded as among the best in the world. If you’re yearning to venture into the desert, head south in spring or early summer to explore the deep and narrow slot canyons of Zion and Capitol Reef. Salt Lake City has a lively and welcoming atmosphere, with a world of artisan breweries and hip restaurants.
Best time to visit Utah: In the late summer and early autumn.
