Slogging through the snow, frozen snowshoers finally arrive to their destination, a Mongolian yurt hidden among powdery mounds. It’s not exactly a reenactment of the historic Donner Party, for these trekkers immediately cast off their bulky layers, uncork their wine and descend unrelentingly on a five-course meal. This is Solitude Resort near Salt Lake City, a hip spot for skiing and a gourmet dinner, which includes a one-mile snowshoe hike into the woods to an authentic, round tent framed with wood beams and stretched canvas.

Bordered by the Great Salt Lake to the west, and the Wasatch Mountains to the east, Davis County is the smallest county in all of Utah, but don’t let its size fool you.
A small and struggling county through the majority of its advent, the town increased in population after World War II with the establishment of the Hill Air Force Base that opened in northern Davis County. The base led to increased civilian employment and the increase has been steady since then. The base still stands, serving the surrounding area.
Davis County is also home of the Lagoon Amusement Park, the main amusement park in the area drawing visitors from neighboring counties. One of the county’s most popular attractions is Antelope Island State Park in the Great Salt Lake, with free-roaming herds of antelope, mule deer, big horn sheep and bison.
