Each resort in Utah has their own policy regarding uphill travel. Resorts have the legal right to restrict or prohibit uphill travel within their boundaries, whether they operate on private or National Forest Service property. These policies have been developed to address growing interest in uphill inbounds travel and potential conflict with mountain operations like grooming and avalanche control.
Existing resort policies are subject to change and it is your responsibility to be aware of and honor the current policy for each resort.
The Utah Avalanche Center provides a summary of each resort's policy as a service to both the resorts and the public. If you have any questions about a policy, please contact the resort directly.
