Utah is known for some of the best quality snow in the world.

The state’s combination of light dry snow produces extremely desirable ski conditions.

The ‘Greatest Snow on Earth’ is due to the low moisture content resulting from pacific storms passing over the Great Salt Lake. Of course, the elevation of many of the state’s mountains also helps with the snow quality.
