Why Park City for Your Next Snow Holiday?
Let’s start with its convenience. The resort base areas sit a short 35 minute drive from Salt Lake City International airport, which can be flown into from over 70 cities across the U.S, making getting there easy whereever you're travelling from. As for accommodation you are spoilt for choice with 2 base areas to choose from. Both the Park City and Canyons base areas have slope-side hotels, town houses, and multi-bedroom condos options all available through the properties of Park City Mountain Resort.
Coming with its massive array of terrain, Park City has an awesome mix of beginner, intermediate and advanced slopes, perfect for gentle cruises or something a little steeper for those powder days. As for snow quality, Utah is renowned around the world for its crisp dry corduroy and consistent light, dry powder. Take a historic ski tour and hear about the silver mining history behind the mountain while you explore the resort.
