Who says ski trips have to be about cocoa in front of a fireplace, re-runs of ski movies and lodgings with ersatz-Alps decor? In Salt Lake City, days spent at Alta, Brighton, Solitude and Snowbird are bracketed by NBA games, thriving cocktail culture, big-name concert headliners, a cool club scene, Broadway shows, ballet, innovative urban eats and more. The Beehive State's capital is buzzing!
