Must-Ski Runs at Utah Ski Resorts
Looking for deep powder, Olympic downhill and halfpipes or precision-engineered terrain parks? There's a Utah ski resort for that.
Salt Lake City
Milly Bowl | Brighton Resort
Back in the good ol' years, Mt. Millicent was a forgotten side slope with a slow 2-seater that stayed untouched for days. Though now equipped with a high-speed quad, Milly still has no lines and opens a playground of options for spinning hot laps all day and sells cheap season passes and lift tickets, making this the perfect spot for quick ski getaways. Drop down the gut of Milly Bowl for glory faceshots that your friends can see from the chair, or play in the cliffs, chutes, or groomers that flank this often overlooked stash.
Fantasy Ridge | Solitude Mountain Resort
Towering high above Solitude Resort and Honeycomb Canyon, the majesty and intensity of Fantasy Ridge gets you going whether you’re skiing it or not. Named the most intense inbound hike in North America by Outsider Magazine, a knife ridge boot pack leads you to chutes 1-26. Some are gnarly and require air, others are not, but the steep, fresh, and euphoric adrenaline factors are pretty much guaranteed every time you travel here.
Flux Capacitor | Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort
Maybe more like the greatest ski run to watch crazy pro skiers like Carston Oliver fly down. A chute with 3 cliff drops that ejects at high speed into Snowbird’s famous Cirque, this line is not for the fainthearted. Watch from below, get an up-close view while passing by on the tram, or strap in and feel the adrenaline bliss as you reach mach speed.
Mt. Baldy | Alta Ski Area or Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort
Serving as a backdrop for big-mountain skiing competitions, a short boot pack up either side of this bare-topped mountain of Alta Ski Area opens a world of possibilities. Join the pros as they thread through chutes, or enjoy the open powder fields and snowy trees. Beware of rocks and cliffs — ask a neighbor if you aren’t sure — and smile as you rock the terrain on one of the most rewarding runs of your life.
