Want to know where 26,000 skiable acres of light, dry powder lives? Or which state five national parks, seven national monuments, five national forests, and 43 state parks call home? The answer is Utah. Interning in Utah is an experience unlike any other in the United States. From Zion National Park to Lake Powell, the outdoor wonders of this state are unrivaled. But if you want your Utah internship to involve more urban experiences, don’t be alarmed. Park City has every club, microbrewery, and restaurant you could imagine and is teeming with interns and college students.
Interns in Utah won’t want to leave without visiting the Olympic Park at least once. Visitors are encouraged to try out a 70 mph ride on a bobsled in the winter, or the Quicksilver alpine slide in the summer. If you don’t feel brave enough to try out the outdoor slides yourself, watching athletes train on these slopes is an equally entertaining opportunity.
Utah interns will get to experience the sites and sets of “Thelma & Louise,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End,” and “Indiana Jones.” In fact, it was in Arches National Park that Indian Jones discovered the Cortez Cross in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade!
In 2012, a Gallup national survey found Utah to be the best place to live in the United States. We know you wont regret your decision to intern in this state.
