Good news, skiers and snowboarders – spring is coming, but there’s still plenty of time to enjoy this year’s amazing snow. If you’re headed to the slopes, leave your car at home and ride UTA’s ski bus service. UTA ski buses are a great way to avoid fighting canyon traffic while helping to improve our air quality. This week only, you can have the chance to win one of four free ski passes and UTA goodies – just for riding the bus!

UTA Ski Bus Scavenger Hunt

  1. Ride a UTA ski bus Feb. 22 through Feb. 24.
  2. Look under your ski bus seat.
  3. If you see a silver envelope that says “Ski Bus Voucher”, open it.
  4. Take a picture of yourself with the voucher and tweet it to us. Facebook or email work too. Be sure your social media account settings are public, or we won’t be able to see your photo. You must contact us by the end of day on Feb. 27, 2017.
  5. We’ll respond to you with instructions on how to redeem a one-day 2016-2017 ski pass to any ski resort served by UTA ski buses. This includes Powder Mountain, Snowbasin, Solitude, Brighton, Snowbird, Alta and Sundance.

Visit for more ways to help improve Utah’s air quality. Tag your social media photos with #showucair as you ride the bus or engage in other activities to help improve our air.
