Salt Lake combines the amenities of a large metro area with the opportunity to take advantage of year round outdoor recreation within minutes in every direction. An attractive, safe, and growing city, Salt Lake offers unequaled views, a thriving economy, exciting nightlife, remarkable history, and the warm hospitality of a small western town. Salt Lake is located in northern Utah and sits in a large valley between two mountain ranges, the Wasatch on the east side and the Oquirrhs to the west.
Since hosting the 2002 Olympic Games, Salt Lake has shined and continues to showcase the city’s profile as a destination to visit. When winter hits, the snow falls on the slopes of our four world-class ski resorts, which are Alta, Brighton, Snowbird, and Solitude. Up in Park City, three world-class ski resorts and the Utah Olympic Park are less than a 40 minute drive from downtown Salt Lake. During spring, summer and fall, our canyons are filled with hikers, rock climbers, mountain bikers and outdoor enthusiasts.
