Winter is coming! Treat your family to our limo service.

As the snow starts to fall in the mountains above Salt Lake City and up and down the Wasatch Mountains, Utah limousine service would seem to slow down. However, that’s not the case for VIP Limousine, as we become increasingly busier during this time of year. Snow does not slow down our vehicles, nor demand for a luxury night out! So what is it that we do in the wintertime?

One of the things that picks up is skiing; after all, we are in Utah, and snow comes regardless of the year. We provide luxury service to all resorts across the Wasatch and beyond, even up to Jackson Hole. For small groups or individuals, we have our elite black car sedan service; if you have a lot of luggage or more people, we also have our luxury SUVs.

Elite black car service with VIP Limousine is the perfect way of getting to and from these locations or having a night on the town in luxury and discretion. Their sophisticated style still blends in and looks classy in all realms. Each vehicle is also equipped with all-wheel drive for sure-footedness in all weather conditions, as well as ensuring you arrive on time to your destination.

Utah's new standard in luxury full-size SUV transport is indeed the Ford Expedition Max. Larger and nicer than the competing vehicles from General Motors, look no further.

On top of the black car service, we also have our stretch limousines going out and about. Our Lincoln, Mercedes, Cadillac, and Hummer go out for company parties, special holiday celebrations, light tours, as well as airport and skiing events. They carry more passengers and cargo in great style and comfort, with full leather interiors, opera lighting, and all the trimmings.

For our light tours, we do offer special packages available in our stretch limousines which reflect the winter months. These include the options of apple cider and hot chocolate, which are the perfect addition to a serene night out on the town gazing at lights and the snowfall.

Cadillac, the ultimate American brand of bling, has a black Escalade in our fleet, with sharp styling and a two-tone leather interior complete with three wet bar sections and fiber lighting. It’s spacious and quiet, with chrome and carbon fiber trim for a modern look.

From the General Motors arsenal also comes the Hummers. Our black Hummer is imposing and capable, with flashy trim and bold style. The interior has two-tone leather surrounding a central wet bar, with fiber and LED lighting and a high-powered stereo. A dark limo tint keeps out prying eyes but lets the passengers take in an unobstructed view in private. The white Hummer is the length of a school bus, bigger than anything else on the road. The welcoming interior is spacious and trimmed with a unique beige leather, coupled with a starlit ceiling to light up any night.

As pure white as snow, our Hummer is sure to impress anywhere and anytime.

Eagle Mountain and Saratoga Springs, Utah: Our Home, Part 30

There is a central corridor in Utah County surrounding I-15 which provides easy access to many cities, homes, and businesses, but there are also areas which are more isolated and off the beaten path. These Salt Lake City suburbs are important for many families which also call Utah their home, and with the changes in home prices and growth, these places are also growing. They’re also often beautiful and quiet, and we love serving clients in these further-flung places.

Hence today’s highlight: Eagle Mountain and Saratoga Springs, tucked over to the west of Lehi and the Silicon Slopes corridor. They are young and attracting a lot of residents from within and outside of Utah.

Eagle Mountain was founded in 1996, and while not massive in terms of population, is already well above 20,000 residents. The seeming isolation doesn’t mean it’s not accessible to business, though; Facebook is bringing a data center to the city which will expand the presence of the tech corridor. In spite of all of the newness, Eagle Mountain does have some history in the area. Back in the 19th century, the Pony Express trail ran through the area, and there is also artwork from an ancient Native American tribe.

Eagle Mountain is also the city of parks, in part thanks to the open areas still present and the intelligent planning for the area. It has 4 regional parks and 35 smaller ones, for a grand total of 39 within the city limits. The city plans to develop more of them for local residents to continue enjoying time outdoors.

Getting to Eagle Mountain is a little more challenging than some of the other major centers in Utah County, but it’s still easily accessible, with multiple highways running into and towards the city with more under construction. The Utah Transit Authority also runs an express bus to the city from the FrontRunner.

Neighboring Saratoga Springs is similarly young, first incorporating in 1997. It’s also similar in size and has grown with similar rapidity, with over 20,000 residents and as a result a lot of new schools. Saratoga Springs does share its name with its namesake in upstate New York. Initial settlements in the 1880s came about because of a nearby natural hot springs which feeds into the Jordan River; this area has since been privately developed. The city itself consists of a somewhat narrow land strip along the coastal area of northwest Utah Lake, as well as stretching up north towards Camp Williams.

Residents and visitors to Saratoga Springs have easy access to the southern end of Salt Lake County as well as the Lehi-Silicon Slopes area, which makes it appealing for newcomers to Utah. There are several highways connecting with I-15, and Redwood Road also feeds north past Camp Williams and into the Riverton/Herriman area. The Utah Transit Authority also provides connecting bus service to parts of Saratoga Springs.

The city of Saratoga Springs also made headlines for one of its most significant residents, former mayor and current Congresswoman Mia Love, who got her start in politics after moving to Saratoga Springs. Originally from Brooklyn, New York, Congresswoman Love has represented the 4th district, Utah’s newest, since 2014. Before this, however, she was part of a video campaign for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which has announced the construction of a new temple in Saratoga Springs.

These two suburbs of Salt Lake City are also considered suburbs of Provo and Orem, and are quickly growing in reputation and size. In the meantime, though, Eagle Mountain and Saratoga Springs offer a mixture of outdoor access and scenery as well as proximity to business and workplaces. It’s a treat for us at VIP Limousine to visit these communities.
