Utah Ski Trips in Davis County

Davis County Utah is prime real estate for a ski vacation headquarters! We have the closest urban hotel lodging (defined as having dozens of restaurants to choose from, day spas facilities for apres ski, movie theatres, shopping) to Snowbasin (site of the 2002 downhill & Super G) and our lodging is less than 30 mins to Powder Mountain. We're within 60 minutes of eight other world class resorts, including those in SLC and Park City. We're only 15 minutes to 30 minutes away from the SL International airport, with its hundreds of daily flights.

For years Ski Utah has been trying to convince winter guests that it makes so much more sense to spend time in Utah rather than the expensive, and rather remote Colorado resorts. You can spend most of your time driving from DIA to the resort, or spend it on the slopes in Utah. And Davis County is an undiscovered gem! (We're the county that's just NORTH of SLC, where Park City is in the county EAST of SLC).

Our NSL hotels are midway between the SL/PC resorts and Snowbasin/Powder Mountain. Mid and north county hotels are even closer to Snowbasin and Powder Mountain. Both resorts have been named by Ski Magazine in the top 10 of many categories. (See our webpage for links to the resorts, comments from other visitors, and some crazy YouTube videos of the resorts!)

Kind of makes you want to go there doesn't it?

Powder Mountain:
  • ranked #5 Overall and in Family Resorts of all Utah Ski resorts by onthesnow.com
  • pretty good reviews of their own at onthesnow.com and here too

Area Davis County hotels offer spectacular ski packages, which include lodging, lift passes (including Salt Lake's Super Pass), and generally a hot breakfast. Our hotels are modern, attractive, convenient, affordable, and close to the big city amenities. Generally, weekend rates are actually better than weekday rates.

And for dinner, if you don't get a room with a suite - you'll have to decide between dozens of excellent restaurants with budgets for every wallet, and tastes for every palate.

Come see why it just makes sense to spend a ski/board vacation in Davis County! Or call us and we'll tell you more about it!
