By now we are half way through our winter season in Salt Lake and it has been passing rather quickly it seems. While many, or dare I say most people can’t wait to get the cold season over with, I find choosing to get the most out of it the best approach.¬†Luckily Utah is a pretty great place to be able to have fun in winter.

The snow kept piling up here so you don’t have to go far to do some exploring in the snowy landscapes. Snowshoeing is something I am relatively new to but enjoying more and more each time I do it. It definitely makes reaching my favorite mountain vistas I only had previously reached when it was not covered in snow a lot easier. Another nice thing about winter is you don’t have to get up at an insane time of day to see the sunrise. I can roll out of bed, get dressed, and make it somewhere pretty and quiet with plenty of time to see a new day begin.

My favorite winter activity though is skiing. It’s an activity I have enjoyed since I was a little kid. They say the best snow on earth is in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. And I have to agree. The snow is often lighter, fluffier, and more powdery than other places. Solitude is one resort I like to ski at and is only a 30 minute drive from Salt Lake.

I love to see the Salt Lake Valley covered in fresh snow. It reminds me how grateful I am to be able to experience all four seasons in a very distinct fashion. Spring will come soon enough, but for now I will continue to enjoy winter’s offerings. I hope you can get out and enjoy it too!
