At the epicenter of skiing in Utah is Salt Lake City.
While there are no ski hills right in the city, there are eight major ski resorts within a one-hour drive of Salt Lake City, and many of these are only 30 to 40 minutes away.
Speed Queen's history, dating to 1908, is rooted in production of durable home laundry equipment.

Steep runs and open bowls are challenging but not overwhelming.
