Group Skis All 13 Utah Resorts In One Day

Utah offers 13 great ski and snowboard resorts, and many people like to ski at more than one in a day. Because of close proximity, it is fairly easy to ski 2-3 resorts in a day. These pairings are common.
- Deer Valley, Park City Mtn Resort, The Canyons
- Snowbird, Alta
- Brighton, Solitude
- Snowbasin, Powder Mtn

Well, a group from Ski Utah decided to see if they could ski at all 13 resorts in one day. They did it, and posted this report. Below are excerpts.

On Tues., Jan. 13, Ski Utah and a team of nine skiers successfully skied all 13 Utah ski and snowboard resorts in a single day. This is the first time in history that every resort in the state has been skied in one day, breaking the record of 11 resorts in a day set during the 2003-04 winter season.

The mission began at Brian Head Resort in southern Utah at 4 a.m. The team drove to the Giant Steps run and enjoyed pristine corduroy snow under the light of a large moon. Mother Nature continued to provide perfect bluebird weather conditions throughout the day. Spectacular snow conditions were complemented with perfect temperatures, mountain-blue skies, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. The final stop was at Beaver Mountain, near Logan Utah, over 360 miles north of the mission’s starting place. The group arrived at Beaver Mountain just before 8 p.m. and enjoyed three celebratory runs off the Little Beaver Lift.

"With an international airport just minutes from our mountains, Utah is the most accessible winter destination in the world,” commented Ski Utah President Nathan Rafferty. “Skiing 13 in a day, using only a van and skis, really underscores this point."
