For proximity to powder, no other metro area beats Salt Lake. Snowbird (800-232-9542) and Snowbasin (888-437-5488) - less than 30 minutes away - are owned and operated by oil magnates Dick Bass and Earl Holding, respectively.

Snowbird is revered for its challenging terrain. Snowbasin boasts wide, friendly runs and a magnificent ride up to Needles Lodge, where on a clear day you'll take in 360-degree views of ice-cream peaks in all four surrounding states.

Tip: If a blizzard hits during your trip, opt for Snowbasin; its gondolas make for a more comfortable ride than Snowbird's standard chairlifts.
