SALT LAKE CITY — Turns out the “best snow on Earth” is also some of the most sought-after snow in the country.

What’s going on: According to a report by TurnKey Vacation Rentals, Utah is home to some of the most searched-for ski resorts of 2018.

The report used data from Google Search to find the top five most searched-for ski resorts in the country from August 2017 to March 2018.

Three of the top five ski resorts were located in Utah, the other two were found in neighboring Colorado.

The data was collected on a state-by-state basis.

The most searched-for ski resorts of 2018:

  • Vail Ski Resort, Colorado
  • Breckenridge Ski Resort, Colorado
  • Park City Mountain Resort, Utah
  • Snowbird, Utah
  • Deer Valley, Utah

Here's a quick rundown of the Utah locations:

Park City Mountain Resort
