An overview of Salt Lake City...

Salt Lake is a city of unexpected surprises and brims with history, art, culture, entertainment and recreation - all in a beautiful location at the foot of Utah's Wasatch Mountains. Salt Lake combines the amenities of a large metro area with the opportunity to take advantage of year round outdoor recreation within minutes in every direction. An attractive, safe, and growing city, Salt Lake offers unequaled views, a thriving economy, exciting nightlife, remarkable history, the warm hospitality of a small western town, and *The Greatest Snow on Earth, TM*. Salt Lake is an incredible destination for patrons of the performing arts with: Ballet West, Utah Opera Company, Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company, Repertory Dance Theatre, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, The Utah Symphony. Numerous theater groups and over twenty art galleries are within minutes of Salt Lake's downtown hotels.


Salt Lake City, Utah, owes much to its Mormon pioneer heritage. Its religious roots can be found everywhere, from the spires of the granite temple at the center of downtown to the statues and monuments dedicated to the city's founding fathers. But Salt Lake City is far more than a city of history. With a highly educated, multilingual population, this small city attracts high-tech companies, entrepreneurial start-ups, and world-class athletes and Olympian hopefuls. Salt Lake City is clean and beautiful, a jewel set against a backdrop of majestic mountains and endless sky, with wide streets and friendly residents. Visitors from around the world went to Salt Lake City for the 2002 Winter Olympics, and from all accounts, they loved what they saw.


Since hosting the 2002 Olympic Games, Salt Lake has shined and continues to showcase the city's profile as a destination to visit. When winter hits, the snow falls on the slopes of our four world-class ski resorts, which are Alta, Brighton, Snowbird, and Solitude. Up in Park City, three world-class ski resorts and the Utah Olympic Park are less than a 40 minute drive from downtown Salt Lake. With the influx of relocatees, and owners of second homes, Park City has transformed itself into a vibrant year-round city. During spring, summer and fall, our canyons are filled with hikers, rock climbers, mountain bikers and outdoor enthusiasts.

Geography...

This north-central Utah community and its suburbs sprawl across the Salt Lake Valley. It's bordered by the Great Salt Lake on the northwest, the Oquirrh Mountains on the west and the Wasatch Mountains on the east. The towering mountains provide an imposing backdrop for Utah's largest metropolitan area.


History...

Salt Lake City's origins can be traced to the other side of the nation - the eastern U.S. From its official organization in New York state in 1830, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (often referred to as the Mormons) faced opposition, much of it violent. Led by Joseph Smith, the Mormons were forced to relocate several times - to Ohio, then Missouri, then Illinois. In each state they were eventually driven from the communities they founded. In 1846, following Smith's murder at the hands of a mob, the majority of Mormons traveled by handcart and covered wagon to unsettled areas in the western U.S., hoping to finally escape persecution.

The Salt Lake City International Airport is just minutes west of downtown city center. Thirteen blocks west of Temple Square lies the Utah State Fair Grounds, and the Utah state capitol building stands slightly to the north. South of Temple Square is the city's central business district with many fabulous hotels. The main campus of the University of Utah is just fifteen blocks east of city center.

On average, Utah mountain peaks are the tallest in the country. The average elevation of the tallest peaks in each of Utah's counties is 11,222 ft., which is higher than the same average in any other state.

Because of Utah's inland location, the snow is usually dry. Earning its reputation for having the "Greatest Snow on Earth" for skiing. There are 13 alpine ski resorts that operate in Utah. And four within 25 minutes of the Salt Lake valley.
