If you’re from Utah, you know we are frequently touted as having “The Greatest Snow on Earth.”
Recently, Forbes, in partnership with ZRankings (ZEERankings) released the 2016 Top 10 Ski Resorts and three of them are in Utah!
Where do snow, luxury, travel ease and terrain come together in harmony? Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort! They were ranked with the #2 spot on the list.
If you went a little bit further into Little Cottonwood Canyon, you’d reach a resort where, for some, skiing is life. The #4 spot went to the resort that has been beckoning skiers since 1939 with nearly 510 inches of snow on average every year – Alta Ski Resort.
Last, but certainly not least, the tenth spot is the newly combined Park City Mountain Resort, the largest ski resort in the United States at 7,300 acres.
Many of us love the mountains here in Utah and are ecstatic that we continue to be known as having three of the top ski resort destinations of 2016.

Energy efficiency has been an ongoing investment at Salt Lake Community College, which serves more than 60,000 students on 10 campuses, making it Utah’s largest college.
To maximize its energy-saving, the community college participates in Rocky Mountain Power’s wattsmart® Business Energy Project Manager Co-funding, which makes it possible for the college to staff a dedicated manager to oversee efficiency projects.
SLCC tackled a multi-campus energy efficiency project, upgrading outdated lighting to highly efficient LED systems. The project resulted in estimated electricity savings of more than 1.2 million kilowatt-hours and earned nearly $242,700 in Rocky Mountain Power incentives over a 12-month period. It also achieved goals for system standardization and maintenance savings.
