Salt Lake City Weather

Averages By Month

Utah’s capital Salt Lake City offers the exquisite feel of a metropolis set right in the middle of the Wasatch Range mountains. From exciting attractions in the city to fantastic food, incredible history including the settling by the Mormons and of course endless outdoor activities in the incredible nature surrounding the city - the ‘ski-city’ of Salt Lake City has something to offer for everyone.

The weather in Salt Lake City offers relatively mild winters with temperatures ranging between the 20s F (-3°C) and 50s F (10s C). When you head up to the mountains tops it will be cooler though with plenty of snow of course.

Spring and fall are the least busy times to visit and offer some fabolous weather to enjoy the outdoors (besides skiing and swimming). Fall would be recommended over spring as it’s drier.

Summers are nice and warm (with highs of 90°F (32°C)), quite dry and the Great Salt Lake is warm enough to float around in the super salty water.

Best Time to Visit Salt Lake City

Well, Salt Lake City has something to offer to everyone each season of the year. Skiers obviously head there when the nearby ski resorts are open which is usually between the end of November until mid-April.

Spring and fall are great to get outdoorsy whilst avoiding the summer crowd and heat and for grabbing better deals. Fall is definitely preferred over springtime given much less crowds.

And summers are nice and hot with highs of up to 90°F (32°C). So while it’s a great time to go for a hike, you might want to choose trails in the woods to get some shade too!
