Utah Ski Areas

When interviewed, James Niehues has acknowledged that his favorite state for skiing is most definitely Utah. And that shouldn’t really be a surprise, Utah’s high concentration of world-class resorts, along with plentiful snowfall makes it a paradise for anyone who likes sliding down snow. So, when Niehues set out to paint this ski map of the state of Utah, he filled it with his special affection for the area. This map, painted from an airborne vantage point, facing generally south from the Great Salt Lake toward Utah Lake captures the majority of Utah’s best skiing in one impressive panorama.

The Wasatch is laid out in all the range’s stunning glory, local favorites like Mount Timpanogos stand tall amongst the cacophony of impressive peaks in Little and Big Cottonwood canyons, and the cities of Salt Lake, Provo, and more are all laid out at the foot of the mountains. If you love skiing in Utah, either as a local, or a long-time visitor, this Utah ski map captures what makes this area so iconic. There are few places on earth with this kind of concentration of incredible skiing, and Niehues did this one justice.
