    Salt Lake City Sports & Outdoors

    The Salt Lake Valley (and much of northern Utah) was once the home of the huge freshwater Lake Bonneville. This lake left behind benches on the mountain sides where once it lapped the shore. There are several distinct levels that are slowly being built on and are no longer as easily seen as they once were. The highest level is known as the...

    Salt Lake City Sports & Outdoors

    The auto rental agency gave us discount coupons for these stores. I rented my equipment for a 25% discount with this coupon. The ski lift tickets for local ski areas can also be purchased a for a $5 discount rather than buying the ski lift ticket at the ski area itself.

    Salt Lake City Sports & Outdoors

    For me, that I use to attend to Futbol (Soccer) games in Argentina, it was a very cold game. It seems to be more important what occurs in the grades that the basketball game itself. Everything was in order, but I expected something different.

  • Tour Soutwest Utah!

    I have done this type of trip in this area at least 12 times and I am running another trip here the second week in March from Vegas. I wouldn't cut out Moab, especially that time of year. Might I suggest staying in Vegas the day you arrive and drive out early the next morning, driving straight through from Vegas to Moab. It is about 7 hours but...

  • Skiing

    No account of Utah would be complete without mention of the great winter snow.With 7 major ski resorts within an hour of the SL Airport and 2 more just a little further, skiing is a big tourist draw. The "Greatest Snow on Earth" is not just a registered trademark, skiiers time and time again agree it is truth. Two canyons on the west side of the...

  • Real Salt Lake: MLS- Soccer

    Soccer fans rejoiced when the newest major league sport franchise opened in the Salt Lake valley. MLS Real Salt Lake started kind of wobbly, but they have hung on and done well. They have just opened a brand new soccer stadium in Sandy named Rio Tinto. The team played two games there and were able for the first time to go to the playoffs. It was...

  • Car Racing

    Utah is not the first place that comes to mind for car racing unless you think of speed records. But there are a number of tracks here. Bonneville Salt Flats are the granddaddy of all speed racing. It was to the hard, wide open salt flats in the western desert that drivers who wanted top speeds came. Ab Jenkins in the Mormon Meteor and Craig...

  • Grizzly Hockey

    The Utah Grizzlies provide dedicated hockey fans with a taste and thrill of the sport. Affiliated with the ECHL, they play at the E Center in West Valley City. This arena was built with hockey in mind and it is a great place from which to watch. It is easy to reach just off I-215. We were avid fans of the old Golden Eagles of years past, but...

  • Bees Baseball

    The Salt Lake Bees are a AAA minor league farm team to the CA Angels. They provide a fun summer night activity. Special nights have fireworks. You can buy a cheap ticket at the Spring Mobile field just outside of downtown, bring your blanket and sit out on the grass past the outfield. Or take the right field line and have a great view of the...

  • Jazz Basketball

    For many years the only major league professional team in Utah was Utah Jazz basketball. They have been providing us with some great sports moments for over 30 years now. Jerry Sloan just reached 1000 victories as Jazz coach, no one else has done that with one team. I'm not a big fan of basketball but the are the biggest thing happening sportwise...

  • a great place for the novice hiker

    If you were thinking of trying hiking our, Utah is a great place to start. Trails in the National Park's of the southern part of the state tend to be short to medium length. You're not going to put in any 12+ hours days in. Also in your favor is your elevation pick up is not great either with a gain of 1500 feet a big day. That's not a lot compared...

  • University of Utah

    The U always provides plenty of opportunities for great spectator sports. The great football and basketball programs are always top contenders. The Red Rocks gymnastic program is solidly at the top of the game and is a great spectator draw. You usually need to plan ahead if you want tickets to any of the games though as they have wide and constant...

  • Take a hike!

    This area of America has some of the most amazing hikes anywhere in the world. Zion NP is particularly brilliant and I can highly recommend the Virgin River narrows - though do check weather forcast before setting out. Angels Landing is a fairly hard hike but the views are magical. The Emerald pools hike is a little less strenuous but still takes a...

  • Skiing/Snowboarding: biginners

    Brighton ski resort in Big Cottonwood Canyon has great slopes for beginners like me.Alta offers free skiing after 3 pm during the week on green trails. I strongly recommend to visit REI stores. First of all, they offer ski passes at lower rates that ski resorts. Just there you can save 10-15 dollars.

  • Winter Olympics 2002

    When I arrived in Salt Lake, another traveler commented to me that the airport was going to be a giant mega-bottleneck during the Olympics because it was so inefficiently managed. They couldn't even tell us which carousel our luggage would arrive on. We only got to see the 2002 Winter Olympics on TV, so that didn't worry me too much. Bob was...
