Website points bargain hunters to Salt Lake ski vacations

WINTER SPORTS —  A national travel website is advising clients that Salt Lake County is the place to go for an affordable skiing or snowboarding vacation.

A frugal traveler visit a Salt Lake-area resort for $239, according to a TripIndex Ski program launched this week by TripAdvisor.com.

By contrast, the most expensive destination is Vail, which costs $746. Park City is third on that list at $667, about $6 cheaper than a trip to Aspen. Two other Colorado resorts, Telluride and Steamboat Springs, round out the top five in the most-expensive list.

The closest bargain destination spot to Spokane is listed as Banff, Alberta.

If you need another good reason to go to Utah, consider this:

Per-gallon price for gasoline dips under $3 in Utah
It's been some time since Utah drivers paid less than $3 a gallon for gasoline, but prices have fallen more than 25 cents a gallon lately, putting Utah tied for 10th with Kansas for low prices of the fuel.

Question: Would you rather live somewhere that had “uptight” laws that tried to rein in the excesses of modern society, like Utah, or somewhere where anything goes?
