Great Things About Snowbird Plus SL Airport Is #1

This ski season is winding down but the snow keeps falling. Our resorts have received up to 11 inches of now snow during the past couple days. See our snow report for current conditions.

Snowbird is lauded in this interesting post on calgaryherald.com. (Yes, Calgary is in Canada.) Here's an excerpt:

This past week, after two enjoyable but snowless days at Solitude and Brighton we hit another powder keg at Snowbird, with a more modest but still mind-blowing 36 centimetres falling the night before and all through our day on the hill (March 11). We earned every one of the Polygamy Porters, Full Suspension Pale Ales, Provo Girl Pilsners and other fine Utah craft beers we enjoyed that night (Despite persistent myths, Utah and especially Park City is home to a host of pubs and micro-brews.) Both days felt like skiing in a snow globe. Utterly blissful.

Salt Lake International Airport

Salt Lake International Airport ranks number 1 for on-time arrivals and departures, according to this article on Deseretnews.com. Here are excerpts:

Salt Lake City International Airport retained its place on top for rankings of both on-time arrival and departure performance at major airports last year.

In 2013, 85.04 percent of arrivals and 86.69 percent of departures were on time, according to the United States Department of Transportation. Both numbers followed the general trend and went down about 3 percent from 2012, when the airport also took the top slots.

The quality of our airport and its proximity to Salt Lake and Park City, is often cited as a key reason people come here to ski. The airport is just 30 minutes from 4 resorts and about an hour away from seven others. Our resorts are some of the most accessible in the world.
