Default Utah Winters?

Hey guys. I was wondering about Utah during the winter. I have NEVER been there during the winter, just the summer, and never even asked anyone what winter is like there. Can someone tell me what its like there during the winter? In Chicago we get tons of snow, and COLD like you have never experienced before. I am looking to relocate, and wouldn't mind winter, as long as it isn't as bad as it is in Chicago...haha

Thanks guys

C

umm depends on where you move but they can get a shit ton of snow and its some of the best skiing/snowboarding in the world there because its basically a high altitude desert at some spots and the snow stays dry

depends on what you like to do, i live 2 hours north. i dont think they would be as cold as chicago, but they can get some gnarly snow storms, great outdoor activities.... all of them. . skiing, rock climbing, ice climbing, camping, 4x4, fishing, hunting, seriously everything outdoors. youll just have to get past the fact that ALL their beer is 3.2%, and sundays the place becomes a ghost town

I am definitely into the outdoors thing. Thanks for the input!

The winters are not to bad it gets down to about 20 to 30 degrees in the day at the coldest usually and can get to be single digits at night. I live in Salt Lake City and it is not to bad. Snow is dry though usually it dumps like crazy when it does snow. Very cold and dry. During the summer it gets up around 90's some times a little higher.

Tons of stuff to do as far as out doors goes. I hunt, hike, fish, 4x4, and camp.

Salt Lake does not really close down on Sundays. There are not as many "mormon releigous" people here as there used to be or at least. Send me a PM and we can talk back and forth if you like.
