Visiting SLC & Northern Utah

Northern Utah brags the Greatest Snow on Earth – it's winter and the season to experience it yourself. World-class terrain awaits Utah travelers, from family-owned Beaver Mountain east of Logan, to Ogden area resorts of Powder Mountain, Wolf Mountain and Snowbasin, and south to Park City and Salt Lake City Wasatch Mountain resorts. Popular Northern Utah fishing lakes will soon be frozen and prime for winter ice fishing. Echo Reservoir and Rockport Reservoir bookend the community of Coalville and are also a convenient 45 minute drive from Salt Lake City. Northern Utah’s slopes, lakes and trails are ready for your winter adventure.

January in Park City, Salt Lake City and Ogden brings the excitement of the Sundance Film Festival. The world-famous festival now features screenings across northern Utah, from Robert Redford’s Sundance Resort in Provo Canyon, to the Eccles Theater in Park City. The 2013 Sundance Film Festival runs January 17th through the 27th.

Hardware Ranch Wildlife Management Area, 20 miles southeast of Logan, offers incredible wildlife viewing through winter. Home to a winter herd of 500 to 600 Rocky Mountain elk, Hardware Ranch is a working ranch supporting northern Utah’s big game and critical wildlife habitat. During winter, the Hardware Ranch elk feeding program is open for visitors, allowing an up-close view of the elk. Join an elk-viewing ride at the ranch and watch as workers distribute hay for winter feeding. For the adventurous, the Blacksmith Fork River, Rock Creek and Curtis Creek offer excellent winter fishing in the Logan area.

The Logan Canyon Snowmobile Complex is another premier northern Utah winter adventure. The complex, east of Logan, features over 180 miles of snowmobiling trails. Sinks trail, Temple Canyon and Beaver Creek are a few of the well-groomed trails that take snowmobilers through the Wasatch-Cache National Forest. The Logan Canyon Snowmobile Complex is one of the country’s best, featuring spectacular scenery and outstanding snow.

Salt Lake City’s Tracy Aviary is a must-see for birders and avian enthusiasts. Located at Liberty Park in downtown Salt Lake City, the aviary offers 2013 Winter Wednesdays through March, featuring reduced admission. Visit Tracy Aviary on January 19 and celebrate Andy’s 54th Bird Day, honoring the 54th birthday of the Aviary’s Andean Condor. Tracy Aviary’s bird habitats include the Owl Forest, the Rare Bird Exhibit and the South American Pavilion.

Basketball is a Utah passion. 2013 winter finds fans filling venues from USU in Logan and Weber State in Ogden, to the University of Utah in Salt Lake City and BYU and UVU in Utah Valley. For NBA excitement, Energy Solutions Arena in downtown Salt Lake City, is home the Utah Jazz. Through March, Utah basketball fans have plenty of options for action on the hardwood.
