Skiers and Riders! This is the year to honor Park City
Park City, Utah, ranks in our Top 5 for Cool Mountain Towns and in this year Park City Mountain Resort celebrates its golden anniversary. The town has its own peculiar and captivating character that you enjoy as much as you relish the skiing.
This exhilarating town character complements three diverse ski areas:
- Park City Mountain Resort
- Deer Valley
- The Canyons
No matter how many times you’ve walked up and down Main Street, whether it’s your first visit there or one of many over the years, you grin back at those you pass who are also laughing and grinning as they stroll from bottom to top and back down again. It’s been this way for 50 years.
Yes, there are wonderful restaurants and yes, there is good shopping. Especially up and down Main Street there are some of the liveliest bars in Ski World.
There are luxury accommodations and there are not-as-pricey accommodations, and any of the three mountains are good for families, besties, or a quick friends’ getaway.
It’s an easy flight into Salt Lake City and just a short transfer from there into the heart and soul of skiing in Utah.
Even in January during the internationally acclaimed Sundance Film Festival, when you can’t turn around without bumping into someone famous, Park City is a comfortable and unpretentious haven for lovers of mountain beauty and snow adventures.
- Still no snowboarding allowed at Deer Valley, to the delight of those loyal to the origin of the sport.
- Still some of the wildest twists and turns on the slopes of The Canyons.
- Still skiers’ and riders’ choice of happy/easy to hell-bent-for-the-bottom on the graceful Grande Dame, Park City Mountain.
If you are a serious skier or rider, you must plan a pilgrimage to Park City this year. Can you go before Christmas? There are ski free/stay free specials at lodges at The Canyons.
Can you get away in January? Or March?
