Big Cottonwood Canyon is a canyon in the Wasatch Range 12 miles southeast of Salt Lake City in the U.S. state of Utah. The 15-mile-long canyon provides hiking, biking, picnicking, rock-climbing, camping, and fishing in the summer. Its two ski resorts, Brighton and Solitude, are popular among skiers and snowboarders.
Winter weather driving is challenging, especially in the Cottonwood Canyons. If you are visiting from out-of-town and renting a vehicle, check with the rental company to verify that your vehicle is equipped with four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
