The old-fashioned mom-and-pop mountain. At only 1600 skiable acres and with a 1604ft vertical drop, who'd think Nordic Valley would garner superlatives? But since all five lifts are lit until 9pm, it has some of the largest night-skiing terrain in Utah, and the magic-carpet lifts provide good access for kids. Runs comprise 25% beginner, 50% intermediate and 25% advanced.
