In our grand effort to reduce dependence and use on antidepressants; to prevent people from becoming alcoholics, and to stop opioid abuse in its tracks: We present to you Utah’s February Fun Guide, a.k.a.: how to not get depressed in February in Utah.
Thank you to some of our great writers and photographers for their ideas.
Hotspringing! There’s nothing quite as life-affirming as climbing out of a simmering geothermal pool into polar conditions while watching ice form on your body as you scramble madly for your clothes! Try it!
Like a lot of folks in Utah, one of my favorite things to do is to ski the plentiful powder here. However, the skiing got even better with the addition of RIME at Deer Valley Resort: the world’s first ski-in/ski-out raw bar!
My favorite thing about Salt Lake City is knowing there is always something new to do. My current favorite thing is to let loose and dance in a creative space called Sphere, 2950 W 500 S.
Open for its second year is the Ice Ribbon in Herriman City. The outdoor ice skating track is the only one in the state and unique in the region. It won the best project award in 2017 from the Utah Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects. At night the ribbon features fire pits and food trucks.
My favorite Utah activities are Squatchin’ in the mountains and playing live music in SLC.
Few things could be more fun than ice fishing for white bass inside the marinas of Utah Lake.
Inexpensive, easy, safe, no limit, excellent to eat … Boom!

My favorite thing to do on a cold winter night in SLC was to go to the Organ Loft on Edison Street and lose myself in a silent movie, along with Blaine Gale on the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ.
I don’t ski, but I love snowshoeing up the canyons in the winter. It’s as breathtaking as wildflower season to move across snow through the meadows and pine stands under a bluebird sky. There is truly nothing quite like it.
When cabin fever takes over in the winter, my husband, our border collie and I like to go snowshoeing. It’s great to get out in the fresh, crisp air for a day in Millcreek, Neffs or Lambs Canyon.
Favorite thing to do: GO TO LAKE POWELL!!!! Easily. It’s the most impeccable place ever. If I could choose my favorite moments in life, they’re sitting on a houseboat in a beautiful canyon in Lake Powell.
Camping in all the different amazing campsites.
Finding 801 Rocks.
Discovering new waterfalls around the state.
Visiting all the activities and unique restaurants in the newly thriving Ogden downtown.
