Utah is famous for its Olympic-class ski resorts and facilities, and it's also one of the few spots in the US where you can try breathtaking heli-ski rides that will take you to places no other skier or snowboarder has set foot.

Snowbird Ski Resort is said to have the longest season in Utah, lasting until late May and sometimes even June! It is also one of the snowiest resorts, receiving over 500 inches (1,270 cm) of powder annually. Heli-skiing rides take place daily departing from heliports at Snowbird and Canyons in Park City. These rides encompass Utah's best skiing and snowboarding destinations: Snowbird, Park City, Alta, and Deer Valley. The heli-skiing is possible in about 100,000 acres (40,000 ha) of the Wasatch Mountains and Uinta National Forest. Some challenging terrain, like chutes, bowls, and meadows, are also available.

The ski season in the Wasatch Mountains usually runs from late November through mid-April. However, Snowbird is open through late May and sometimes even June. The best snow conditions are usually observed in February.
