Flights to Salt Lake City
Delta Connection by SkyWest at St. George Municipal Airport (SGU) offers daytime discount flights to Salt Lake City from St. George. Remaining low fare Salt Lake City flights arrive four miles from downtown at Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC). The Delta Airlines hub also hosts Southwest, United, American, and Frontier. Salt Lake City flights are respected for timeliness, low cancellation rates, and free Wi-Fi in the airport. It is well prepared for future expansions and upgrades, including earthquake-resistant engineering and a new terminal. SLC is also home to a world-class Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) training center, and an Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) that manages air vehicle movements up to America’s northern border. Airport 1975, Dumb and Dumber, and Unaccompanied Minors were all filmed at SLC.
Salt Lake City Weather
Many passengers on budget flights to Salt Lake City like to come in winter. At this time of year, weather inversions take place, making mornings suitable for skiing in brilliant sunshine and afternoons perfect for 18 holes, as the smog has often cleared by then. Summer arrivals on bargain Salt Lake City flights follow the locals’ lead for grilling, canyon adventures, and live music performances. Besides rain jacket, lip balm, and sunscreen, include a day’s clothing for the opposite weather (no matter which season you visit). Salt Lake City’s abruptly changing weather conditions catch many visitors off guard.
Salt Lake City When to Go
Winter brings epic snow to the Wasatch Range: more than 500 inches on average and nearly 700 on particularly blessed years. For visiting skiers and snowboarders, it’s a roll of the dice which month will yield the most fluff. Typically February and March promise the deepest collections of snow, but the skies routinely dump well into April and even May. It’s not uncommon for Snowbird Ski Resort to remain open through June.
Spring typically sees a lull in visitors as the ski areas clear out and fly-fishermen, golfers, and mountain bikers wait for the mud to dry. Summer attracts the most visitors to Salt Lake, despite temperatures that routinely reach the 90s. Some pass through on their way to national parks in southern Utah and the Tetons of Wyoming. Others come for the season-long celebration of music, with events like the Salt Lake City Jazz Festival and the Utah Arts Festival. Free concerts in downtown Pioneer Park every Thursday attract as many as 40,000 people, and other venues, such as the Rice-Eccles Stadium, USANA Amphitheater, and the outdoor Red Butte Gardens, attract headliners from U2 to Michael Franti & Spearhead.
September is arguably one of the best times of visit Salt Lake City. The temperatures start to cool off, the music scene is still thriving, and the mountains are just starting to turn gold for fall. November and December are typically dead and brown (and cheaper) as the weather turns cool but the snow has yet to fall.
