About self storage in Utah
Utah is known for its many different terrains and outdoor activities. The Wasatch Range has some of the best skiing in the world – Utah’s license plates even claim, “the Greatest Snow on Earth” – and Salt Lake City hosted the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. The Wasatch Range is home to nearly 75 percent of the state’s population. The region includes some of the state’s largest cities, including Ogden, Salt Lake City, Layton, West Valley City, Sandy, West Jordan, Orem and Provo. Salt Lake City, the biggest city in the state, has nearly 100 storage units found on StorageFront.
In some areas of the mountainous Wasatch Range, the mountains receive up to 500 inches of snow. The fluffy snow makes the many ski resorts a destination for skiers and snowboarders. Looking for a place to store your snow skies, snowboards and other equipment? Search for the self–storage unit closest to you on StorageFront.
The south and southeastern regions of Utah are known for their sandstone, and these regions feature many canyons, gullies, arches, pinnacles, buttes, bluffs and mesas. The destination in this area of the state is its protected state and national parks, including Canyonlands, Arches, Capitol Reef, Zion and Bryce Canyon national parks. The area also has several national monuments: Cedar Breaks, Hovenweep, Natural Bridges, Glen Canyon, Rainbow Bridge and Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. Lake Powell is also in the region, making Utah a tourist hotspot year round. Search StorageFront to find a storage unit where you can store your boat or RV.
Southwest Utah, known as Utah’s Dixie, is also a popular recreation spot and has become a retirement destination. The biggest city in Dixie is St. George, which is one of the fastest–growing cities in the United States.
Utah keeps its meteorologists busy with its temperature extremes. The mountainous regions experience cold temperatures in winter because of the elevation, and the rest of Utah has very hot summers.
If you’re storing items in Utah that could be affected by the cold or heat, search StorageFront for a storage unit that is climate controlled.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune, members of the Latter Day Saints Church make up 60.4 percent of the state’s population. In the latest census numbers, Utah’s birth rate is the highest in the United States and the state has the youngest population.
Some of the state’s schools are built around the LDS Church, including BYU. BYU is one of five Division I Universities, joining Utah, Utah State, Weber State and Utah Valley. For college students looking to store their belongings during the summer, look for a self–storage unit in any of these college towns on StorageFront.
