SALT LAKE CITY — Utah ski resorts topped the charts in the latest survey of a top outdoor publication. Several Utah ski destinations ranked among the best in the 2011 SKI magazine reader poll.
For the fifth year in a row, Deer Valley Resort in Park City earned the overall No. 1 spot of the 20 best ski areas. Also joining Deer Valley was Park City Mountain Resort at No. 6, Canyons Resorts ranked No. 16 and Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort was rated No. 20 on the list.
In addition, several Utah resorts received the top ratings in other categories, including Alta for overall satisfaction, character and snow, while Powder Mountain rated among the best for value. Deer Valley received high praise for weather, grooming, on-mountain food, dining, lodging, and service.
