If you’re looking for a stunning destination to visit during these cold months, you’ve come to the right place. Winter turns Salt Lake City into a breathtaking wonderland. And the locals know that there’s more to Utah’s capital than skiing (although we think our slopes are a must-see experience). At Affordable Rent-A-Car And Sales, we’ve helped visitors find reliable car rentals for the vacation of a lifetime for years now. Here are a few ideas to help you make the most of the colder months in this magical city.
What about Salt Lake City’s Winter Weather?
Get ready to swap your beach shorts for snow boots. Salt Lake City transforms into a snowy paradise in the winter. Average temperatures range from a chilly 20 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit between December and February. Snowfall is frequent and heavy, causing the city to sparkle. But you don’t have to worry; roads are well maintained to accommodate winter conditions.
Let’s start with the basics. No winter vacation to Salt Lake City is complete without a visit to our world-renowned ski resorts. Whether you’re a pro or a beginner, you’ll find a slope just right in the city or just a quick SUV rental drive away. Snowbird and Alta are just a few of the best ski resorts in the country.
If you’re up for an adrenaline rush, switch your skis for snowshoes or a snowmobile! Enjoy the surrounding snow-laden forests and trails that offer a unique perspective of Salt Lake City’s winter beauty.
Bear witness to the dramatic landscapes of Great Salt Lake and Antelope Island that take a gorgeous icy guise in winter. Antelope Island, accessible with one of our comfortable car rentals, offers unrivaled views of our snow-capped mountains and frosted landscapes.
Fun for All: Family Attractions
Planning a family vacation? Salt Lake City’s got you covered! Apart from skiing, places like Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum, Hogle Zoo, and the Natural History Museum of Utah offer great indoor activities. The zoo even has discounted hours on special days during the winter months. These spots are easily accessible, especially with a truck or SUV rental.
Local Comforts: Hot Chocolate, Anyone?
No trip is complete without savoring the local winter flavors. Warm up during your winter vacation with a steaming cup of hot chocolate at Hatch Family Chocolates, which Yelp named one of the top 20 places in the U.S. to order hot chocolate in 2022. If you’d like a sandwich, pastry, or cake with your hot chocolate, don’t miss out on a stop at Tulie Bakery for some tasty delights.
