I had my skies tuned in Vermont, but I have been skiing utah, and I feel like they are sticking. Is there that much difference in the snow, that a different wax should be used or is it in my head?

I think there are 2 problems here
1) As mentioned by cantunamunch, check what the conditions are and you may need a specific wax. If the temps are the same as vermont
then wax choice won't be remarkably different. They don't make UTAH wax or VERMONT wax.
2) wax doesn't last a whole season. Even if you stayed in vermont, the wax may only last a few days.
Do you know what wax they used in vermont, and exactly how they applied it? If it wasn't a race tune, likely you got a bulk all-temp general wax which is not too special in any dimension.
Then you need to know how they applied it.
If it is just a machine brush wax, it may last less than a day.
If it's a machine hot wax, maybe a couple of days
If it is hand iron, maybe up to 5days.
