From Hurricane Sandy to a horribly sad school shooting, “Sandy” has gotten a bad rap this year, except for those who know the secret of skiing Sandy. For those who know, Sandy, Utah is considered the “Ultimate Base Camp” for skiing the Cottonwood Canyon’s four world-class resorts, Snowbird, Alta, Brighton, and Solitude.
Sandy is a quick 15-20 minute drive from the Salt Lake International Airport and just another 10 minutes to the base of the Cottonwoods. Within a three-mile stretch, the Sandy/Draper area boasts a major shopping mall, dozens of restaurants and bars, movie theaters, Imax theater, several golf resorts (for half-day golf and half-day spring skiing), other entertainment, grocery stores, three Ski ‘N See/ARCS shops, and easy access to Utah’s public transportation system, including city buses, Trax light rail stations, and ski buses that take you straight to the Cottonwood resorts… not to mention easy freeway access to downtown Salt Lake City, just 10 minutes away.
To top off the access to great activities and amenities in Sandy, is a group of hotels to which you would be proud to refer your family, friends, and ski groups, with rates much lower than can be found at the resorts. Click on your favorites to learn more about what each hotel has to offer.
