Known as a premier ski and snowboarding destination, Utah’s awe-inspiring ski resorts are famous for “the best snow in the world” and attract visitors from all over the globe.
The Wasatch Mountain region
offers optimal climate conditions to create perfect snowfall that is lighter and drier than in any part of the country. Known for its high quality of life, Utah boasts spectacular amenities, from lots of outdoor activities to fine dining, amid breathtaking landscapes.
To add to Utah’s appeal, the Salt Lake International airport (just 25 minutes away from Park City) serves as a Western travel hub for major U.S. airlines and non-stop international flights. Whether you’re a frequent flyer or anticipate welcoming friends and families throughout the year, Utah is a mecca for travelers.
Not only a premier destination for winter sports, including skiing and snowboarding, but Utah also boasts an arts scene that is just as impressive. It’s home to the Sundance Film Festival, which is held in Park City annually and significantly boosts the Utah economy and attracts an elite crowd that flocks to enjoy the food, hospitality, arts and culture, and more.
A strong economy is another reason Utah is garnering so much attention in 2022. The U.S. Census Bureau's latest estimates
report Utah’s population increased from 2,763,885 in 2010 to 3,240,879 in 2020 — an increase of 17.6% and the largest in the country.

A major aspect of the Mayflower development includes the construction of new access roads, called “portals,” designed to connect Highway 40 to the ski resort. Underpasses beneath the highway, currently under construction through the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), will facilitate access to the highly anticipated alpine ski resort. UDOT anticipates connecting the portals to the resort frontage road as early as summer 2022.
Surrounding access points can be found by the charming neighboring communities surrounding Mayflower Mountain Resort. The highly anticipated destination is easily accessible - without one stoplight between the resort and the airport, it is location just past Kimball Junction and I-80, onto highway 40 and your arrival is welcomed with views of Jordanelle Reservoir and the Uinta Mountains.
