Here's a secret many New Yorkers don't know: You can leave Manhattan in the morning and be skiing the world's best powder by lunch. 
 
Nope, it's not in Vermont. It's in Utah. 
 
That's right. With Salt Lake City just a quick five-hour flight from the city, New Yorkers can be schussing down pristine powdery slopes within an hour after landing. That's because 11 of Utah's 14 renowned ski resorts are located less than an hour's drive from Salt Lake City.  
 
Home to "The Greatest Snow on Earth®”--resulting from storm systems sweeping across the desert before dumping light, dry powder as soon as they hit the Wasatch Mountains--Utah is also home to a diverse range of ski resorts, each with its own unique charms. Some cater to families with their myriad amenities and off-hill activities, while others court hardcore types with steep chutes and deep bowls. 
 
But with so much easily accessible skiing to choose from, it can be hard to settle on just one (or, let's face it, two or three). That's why we've put together our handy Utah ski guide. Click on the gallery to the left to find out what resort is right for you, then head to VisitUtah.com to start planning your winter vacation.
