Salt lake city driving in winter

I plan to visit Salt Lake City this Winter starting Christmas for a few weeks. I’m renting a car and I was wondering if I should be aware of any specific regulations and issues while driving in Winter.

  • Would the rental cars typically offer winter tyres?
  • Is the snow cleared often?
  • Do I need a AWD/4WD to reach ski resorts?
  • Do I need special winter lights?

For reference I’m based in the UK and will be travelling to ski resorts in the SL area. I’ve never driven in the US, though I have in many other countries.
