Salt Lake City is the capital of Utah in the southwest region of the United States. The city is a few miles off the Great Salt Lake, and is also located beside the Wasatch Mountain Range. Consequently, Salt Lake is a renowned winter holiday destination.

Amtrak and FrontRunner rail lines connect Salt Lake with California. Salt Lake City is seven hours behind GMT. During the winter there is lots of snow in Salt Lake City, but the summers have much more sunshine and little rainfall.
