"If you're in Utah for the mountains, Sandy is the place to be. You're only minutes from all the fun that Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons have to offer: Snowbird, Alta, Brighton, and Solitude resorts; dozens of trailheads for mountain biking and hiking; incredible limestone and granite for rock climbing.
