Home to the 2002 Winter Olympics, Utah is known for its scenic mountain scenes and its illustrious snow but did you know it is home to some of the most precious experiences for snowboards and skiers alike? As Paul Marshall, Director of Communications of Ski Utah states “every one of these resorts has a different character and feel. While some prefer to not have cell service or WiFi, others have put significant efforts into making sure high-speed WiFi is constantly at your finger tips. It is a great dynamic.”

Here are the top places to not only experience the snow, but to also personalize your experience by meeting your WiFi needs.
