Utahns are lucky. We have adventure in our own backyard. Even during the height of the pandemic, we had the opportunity to get outside and experience some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world!

This winter you can safely dine, shop and ski #InUtah and share your experiences with others using the hashtag #InUtah on social media.

We talked with Pete Codella with the Utah Governor's Office of Economic Development, who says our economy has been stronger than most states for the last year, because there's so much to do here, and practice social distancing too.

Utah boasts a wide array of natural assets including 34 million acres of public land and five national parks. This is a great way to stay active while following public health guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Utah is also home to 15 ski resorts, innumerable hiking trails and thousands of miles of world class biking trails. By visiting one of them this winter, you are giving Utah's economy a lift.

There are also unique stores to visit and plenty of restaurants with amazing cuisine, so put on a mask and support local!

Go to to see a lot of different partners all across the state.
