Summit County, Utah Overview 2015

Economic Development Corporation of Utah

Summit County is located in Northern Utah, approximately 30 miles east of Salt Lake City in a geographic area known as the “Wasatch Back” referring to the backside of the Wasatch Mountains. It contains 39 of Utah’s highest peaks and has earned its reputation as an upscale getaway, bringing in many new development opportunities.

With a highly educated and affluent population, exceptional schools, a myriad of recreational opportunities, and an urban lifestyle within a rural setting, net in-migration is anticipated. In Summit County, tourism is the largest single component of the economic base; it provides more than 6,500 jobs in travel and recreation related employment, 53 percent of Summit County’s total employment. Previous economies were based on agriculture, logging, and mining.
