Winter is finally on its way, and the change in the season means it's almost go-time for UTA's ski bus service to local ski resorts.

Big and Little Cottonwood Canyon Resorts

Significant improvements are on tap for UTA ski bus service to Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude resorts. The new service will run all day, with 15-minute frequency during peak hours, and provide increased parking capacity at multiple parking lots served by ski bus routes. In addition, the new service features improved connections to TRAX and FrontRunner, and Route 200, providing frequent all-day access to people from downtown and throughout the region. Also, due to public feedback earlier in the fall, UTA plans to begin Cottonwood Canyon ski bus service on weekends only as early as Dec. 2 (subject to resort opening dates). Big and Little Cottonwood Canyon service will end on April 9. Click on the links below for more details:
