Salt Lake City
Salt Lake City, often abbreviated to SLC, is the capital and largest city in Utah. The city was founded in 1847 by Brigham Young and numerous other Mormon followers, who extensively irrigated and cultivated the dry valley. The LDS Church still plays a vital role in the city, which contains its central offices, a profit division, Deseret Management Corporation and its subsidiaries, which are headquartered in the city too.
Known historically as the "Crossroads of the West" for its many railroads, SLC was built upon the nearby steel, mining and railroad operations which provided most of its income upon its foundation. Today, business is booming in Salt Lake City once again.
Growth in the metro area is expected to be 4.4% over the next two years according to Forbes, far above the national average. Salt Lake City is home to one Fortune 500 company, Huntsman Corporation, and two Fortune 1000 companies, Zions Bancorporation and Questar Corporation. Other notable firms include Sinclair Oil Corporation, Overstock.com, Smith's Food and Drug (owned by Kroger), MonaVie, and Vehix.com.
Tourism has increased since the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, when many hotels and restaurants were built for the events. The convention industry has expanded greatly since the construction of the Salt Palace convention center, including the large Outdoor Retailers meeting and Novell's annual BrainShare convention.
When it comes to skiing and other winter sports, you’ve also found the right spot. The Olympics were hosted in part by Park City, Deer Valley and Snowbasin – helping to put the region on the map when compared to Colorado for high quality skiing. Then you have what are often referred to as the “Salt Lake City resorts”, found in Little Cottonwood Canyon and Big Cottonwood Canyon. These slopes include Snowbird, Alta, Brighton and Solitude ski resort. With average annual snowfall of a superbly dry 500 inches, there is a reason SLC is often called “the Greatest Snow on Earth”. There are plenty of other non-alpine activities such as dining, nightlife and high-end shopping in the resorts as well.
