British skiers will be able to fly direct to Salt Lake City next season, with a new route announced by Delta airlines for 2016/17. Skiers will be able to fly directly to Utah from London Heathrow for the first time, providing much easier access to ski the state’s resorts of Park City Mountain Resort, Deer Valley, Snowbird, Solitude, Alta, Powder Mountain, Brighton and Sundance.

Delta’s Heathrow to Salt Lake City route will depart three times a week at 11.30 and arrive in Utah at 15.40, with the return flight departing Salt Lake City at 15.05 and arriving back in London at 09.30 the following day. All passengers will have access to on-demand in-flight entertainment and wifi on-board.

Ski Independence is one of the tour operators now taking bookings, and the company’s product manager, Nick Laver, said “We’re delighted to be able to offer this fantastic new service to our customers for next winter.

“Utah has a massive array of world-class resorts to choose from and this offers a faster and more straightforward journey. Transfers are quick and convenient too – Park City is only 45 minutes’ drive from Salt Lake City.”

In addition to the new Heathrow flights, Delta will also be running daily direct flights from Amsterdam to Salt Lake City, adding more flexibility for regional connections. Links are possible from Edinburgh, Newcastle, Leeds Bradford and more.
