    options for 4-5 day jaunt to Salt Lake City

    so a few of us crotchedy northerners are looking to have a boys weekend this year (date TBD), cursing (some of us, anyway) our impending 40th b-days. the trails of the SLC are on the short list, but what i am curious about is:

    - are there direct flights into the area from major cities (ie, boston, philly, cleveland, LA)?
    - if so, is it much of a drive from the airport to the hotbed of trails?
    - is there a desireable center location from which the goods can be gotten to?
    - any decent trail guides around, or do you need local knowledge?

    any help is appreciated.

    thanks

    I'll take a shot...

    since I'm rather crotchety myself!

    Direct flights - Yes. Delta has a hub here, so lots of direct flights. LA, Dallas, Atlanta + other Delta hubs.

    Drive to trails - 20-30 minute drive to most local trails. Park City being about 30 mins from the airport. Wasatch trails on the west side are considerably closer.

    Central location - SLC isn't that big of a city. Anywhere in the city is central to the trails.

    Insider info - www.utahmountainbiking.com has trail lists, pics, and GPS coordinates. There's also plenty of locals around. If you decide to venture north a little, the Logan and Ogden areas have some nice trails too. See you soon.
