These sister resorts in Utah’s Little Cottonwood Canyon -- just a stone’s throw from Salt Lake City -- are among the most accessible ski fields in the country. And they're also, like, best friends -- they never fight. Alta’s 2,200 acres of old-school slopes, with long, straight runs that cut down the fall line include one of skiing’s most notorious, Alf’s High Rustler, but remains off limits to snowboarders. Snowbird, on the other hand, rocks 3240ft of vertical drop, 2500 skiable acres, and 85 trails for both skiers and riders. The good news is, you can ski both on one pass. And after a long day on the hills, there's plenty of après to go around -- just don't expect to rage all night. Here it's all about the snow, son.
