Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

DM, I notice your comment on getting there. In the past I've flown with Delta and United (via Chicago), and North West (via Minneapolis).
When we were in SLC recently, I met a couple of boarders from Manchester who had flown to Chicago, then down to Dallas, then over to SLC (because that was what their travel agent had recommended). They'd also paid close to ₤500 each.
Definitely worth shopping around!

Wear The Fox Hat, Definitely.

One of our party did BA to Chicago, AA to SLC. It wasn't that much faster than our routing. Other chums did London-San Francisco, stayed with chums overnight there in each direction and then a short 1.5hr hop San Fran -Salt Lake. That actually seemend quite appealing.

Our route back was better as the Houston layover was nominally only 1.7 hrs and the Houston-LGW sector only 8hrs 45 mins. Bumpy all the way though, not that that's anyone's fault.

Nobody I know likes Houston as a gateway.... in fact they avoid it like the plague.... I'd have thought Cicinnatti would be ok for Delta. Or Chicago sounds ok

JT, I can imagine why they don't. I've been through it (ugh) 6 times in the last 2 years. Not to be recommended.

We went through Cincinnatti en-route to SLC with Delta.
Delta were a fairly crap airline, but Cincinnatti was very hassle free as a gateway/change planes.

T Bar,

Alta actually has really nice intermediate terrain. Groomed intermediate runs off every lift. Do note the groomed blues can get pretty bumpy on a powder day. The intermediate terrain is not real extensive so if you're the kind of person who wants to ski a different trail every run, it won't keep you occupied more than a day or two. Alta also offers some very gentle beginner terrain. The layout of Alta makes it possible to easily pick your preferred degree of dificulty. Depending on snow conditions, you can often venture off the blues into bits of fresh powder or bumps without going far from where you can easily get back onto the groomed terrain. Also note that there are no safety bars on any lifts. Deer Valley would offer a much more refined experience. The Canyons also offers abundant intermediate cruising terrain. Not much nightlife up at Alta/Snowbird, but the skiing is pretty magical.
