Traveling with ski gear can be a challenge. Rolling a ski bag along with luggage, while all the family is in tow, can sometimes be a tough beginning to the trip. However, flying into Salt Lake City is so convenient. Located only 36 miles from Deer Valley Resort, it’s possibly the quickest way to get on the slopes. It isn’t uncommon to leave a major U.S. city and land in Salt Lake City by mid-morning, allowing you to lap your favorite ski run by the afternoon.
Served by 10 major airlines, Salt Lake City International Airport is not only one of the western U.S.’s major hubs, but it also boasts the highest rate of on-time arrivals among U.S. international airports. On-time flights mean less stress when traveling with ski gear. The airport is close to the city and public transportation, and about ten minutes from downtown and 40 minutes to Deer Valley®. After one trip into Salt Lake City International Airport, you’ll wonder why you ever flew into airports that are located miles from town and even further from the mountains.
