How to get there

All the big airlines fly to Salt Lake City from Boston, with Delta offering daily nonstop flights. The easiest way to reach Park City, Deer Valley, and Alta and go from resort to resort is by rental car. Get one with four-wheel drive since the approximately 30-mile drive from Salt Lake City to Park City passes through mountains.
