The medical center sits in the foothills of the Wasatch Front Mountains. Salt Lake City offers a wide variety of cultural activities, like the nationally-recognized Utah Natural History Museum, Ballet West, and endless outdoor activities, including world-class skiing, boarding, bike riding, hiking, camping, and river sports.
