Perhaps you\u2019ve seen the license plates and were intrigued, but wondered if it\u2019s really true. Everyone thinks their state is the best. \u201cGreatest Snow on Earth?\u201d Does Utah really have the greatest snow?\n\n\n\nTurns out, it does. The dry climate that has Utah natives stocking up on lotion in bulk from Costco makes marvelous snow.\n\n\n\nAccording to Outside, \u201cUtah\u2019s dry, cold atmosphere produces snowflakes called dendrites, which are thin and crystal-like andso light and fluffy that, when skiing through them, they make you feel buoyant without causing a lot of resistance. As such, powder skiing in Utah is the closest most people will get to floating in space.\u201d\n\n\n\nIf that doesn\u2019t get you hyped to ski, nothing will!\n\n\n\nHere\u2019s how to keep it simple.\n\n\n\nDon\u2019t Pack Your Equipment\n\n\n\nThat may sound counterintuitive, but it\u2019s easy to hop on a plane and hit the slopes shortly after you land. People on the East Coast do it all the time, finding it easier to ski in Utah rather than fighting all the traffic to the resorts that are actually closer to them.\n\n\n\nBut it\u2019s not so easy if you\u2019re wrangling poles and standing idle at luggage carousels. If you\u2019re driving, it may be difficult to pack all you need depending on the car\u2019s size.\n\n\n\nBut you definitely don\u2019t want to waste powder time standing in line at the rental station, so that doesn\u2019t work either.\n\n\n\nLuckily, if you\u2019re skiing in Park City--the largest resort in the Nation--then you\u2019re in luck. HWY 40 Ski Delivery will bring equipment right to you. Their team also brings enough to ensure a perfect fit. When you\u2019re done, no need to return. They\u2019ll come and pick it up for you.\n\n\n\nOrder in advance so you\u2019re ready to go once you hit Salt Lake.\n\n\n\nIf you do decide to hit the slopes on Park City Mountain, keep in mind it has ski-in-ski-out access to and from Main Street. It\u2019s the only resort with lift access directly onto Main Street. Make sure to take advantage of this rarity and save some time for exploring this famous town.\n\n\n\nTake a Lesson\n\n\n\nEven if you\u2019ve got skills, it doesn\u2019t hurt to brush up and get some tips from a local. You\u2019ll learn where to find the best runs, restaurants, and entertainment. They can also evaluate your skill level and make trail recommendations.\n\n\n\nYou can do some research before you arrive, but make sure to talk to the experts at the resort in case anything you\u2019ve learned is outdated.\n\n\n\nDoublecheck Fit and Pack Layers\n\n\n\nFirst of all, if you\u2019re bringing the kids, make sure their ski clothes still fit. Make sure yours do, too. If you\u2019ve had any fluctuations, you don\u2019t want to find out you need new gear after you\u2019ve hit the resort.\n\n\n\nAccording to VisitUtah.com, when it comes to packing for the winter, \u201cit\u2019s all about layers that you can mix and match with increase in activity, especially insulating, breathable base and mid-layers leading to quality waterproof top layers.\u201d\n\n\n\nMake a list of everything you need, and check it twice. Plan ahead to keep your vacation running smoothly.\n\n\n\nHave fun! Let us know about your trip in the comments. Any tips you\u2019d like to add?
