Many come to Utah for skiing and snowboarding, but 'The Greatest Snow on Earth' can provide residents and visitors with so much more! Check out all these activities that have nothing to do with skiing or snowboarding.
Ice Skating Looking for a winter activity the whole family can enjoy? Visit any of Utah's many ice skating rinks for a fun activity for any skill level. From the warmer indoor rinks to watching the snow fall as you skate outside, ice skating is a quintessential winter time activity. Click here for more information on some of Utah's most popular ice skating rinks.
Snowshoeing Love hiking and/or backpacking in the summer and looking to get out in nature during the winter? Strap on a pair of snowshoes and hit the trails! Snowshoes provide a fun and easy way to get out into nature and off the beaten path. Participants can rent snowshoes for as low at $20 a day from local sporting outlets and many outfitters offer guided tours. For more information on snowshoeing in Utah, click here.
Tubing And Sledding Looking for a winter thrill? Try tubing and sledding! Whether you want to visit any number of supermarkets or outdoor retailers and buy your own tube or sled, or you'd rather rent a tube and slide down a man made course (usually they even transport you back up to the top of the hill!), tubing and sledding is fun for the whole family. Check out these locations for tubing parks and some of the best sledding around the Wasatch Front and Back!
Snowmobiling Ready to go full throttle and race your friends through the powder? Jump and a snowmobile for the jolt of adrenaline you've been looking for. Whether you want to pave your own trail in the backcountry or take a leisurely ride through nature, Utah has some of the best snowmobiling in the country. Click here for more information.
Revisit The Olympics What would it be like to be an Olympic athlete? With the Utah Olympic Park, you can find out! Take a ride down the bobsled track, watch ski jumping and areal practice, wander the Alf Engen Ski Museum, experience the virtual reality ride, and so much more.
