Program #20695RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
With an average of 500 inches of snowfall each year, it’s no wonder that Salt Lake City’s Wasatch Mountains — the western edge of the Rockies — have achieved a skiing status as the “greatest snow on Earth.” Experience this world-class powder for yourself as you explore the trails of four of the nation’s top-rated ski resorts — Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude — and get insightful pointers from professional instructors. Learn about the region’s rich ski history, gain perspective on the lives of the native Ute people, and enjoy a special dinner at the “Lion’s House,” the historic home of Brigham Young.


Highlights

• Ski some of the finest trails in Utah and improve your techniques with lessons taught by Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA.)
• Attend a rehearsal of the world-famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir prior to their scheduled radio and television performance.
• Consider the history of this Rocky Mountain region during field trips to the American Museum of Natural History and Historic Temple Square.
