The airport was advanced to international mark in the 1960s and became Salt Lake City International Airport. Like all of the developed cities all over the nation, Salt Lake City faced inner-city decomposes beginning especially in the 1960s, while the suburbs grew extremely. Salt Lake City was able to partially turnover the trend and culture of inner-city decay, and its population grew for the first time in 40 years. Perhaps the most charming physical feature in Salt Lake County is the Wasatch Mountains in the eastern part of the county, and celebrates for both summer and winter activities.

The summer is very dry, with the best part of precipitation coming from the monsoon that rises from the south. Short, localized, and often dry thunderstorms are normally related with the monsoon. At some stage in winter, temperature inversions are a general problem. The inversion will trap impurity, wetness, and cold temperatures in the valley while the closest mountains enjoy warm temperatures and luminous sunshine.
