  • Alta — Known for its powder and skier's only traditional attitude (sorry snowboarders)
  • Beaver Mountain — Known as a family owned and operated resort with a good amount of charm
  • Brian Head — Known for skiing/riding in the desert red rock of southern Utah
  • Brighton — Known for its terrain park and kids 10 and under ski free
