When Bing Crosby sauntered out the lyrics “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas,” he perfectly described Park City, Utah during the holiday season. With copious amounts of Utah’s famous “champagne powder” and a Main Street that boasts something for everyone, Park City is the perfect winter escape for the whole family. Here are the top reasons to book a holiday vacation in Park City this winter.
What do you get when you combine the largest ski resort in the United States and the best ski resort in the United States? Park City, of course. When Park City and Canyons merged to become the largest ski resort in the United States, the resort added $50 million of improvements to create an unparalleled ski experience. Track fresh powder from one end to the other over 7,300 acres. Deer Valley Resort, located a mere 39 miles from Salt Lake City International Airport, was honored as the United States’ Best Ski Resort by the World Ski Award’s 2015 Ski Oscars. Discover first-class service over 21 chair lifts, 101 ski runs, and six bowls. With the option of not one, but two amazing ski resorts, your family will have the holiday vacation of a lifetime.
Last season, Park City received many of its legendary foot plus dumps of snow during the month of December. In fact, holiday visitors experienced two seventeen inch storms back to back. That’s almost 35 inches of snow in two days. Does skiing 159 inches of powder in December sound great to you? Come visit us in Park City.
Holiday roasts and eggnog, oh my! As much as we love all of the delicious holiday delicacies, you have to admit it’s a great way to pack on the pounds. Did you know that a typical day’s skiing can burn up to 3,000 calories… far more than a session at the gym? Go ahead and help yourself to seconds (or thirds.) Also, you can’t après ski until you ski. That High West Distillery hot toddy won’t drink itself. Check back soon for our favorite après spots in Park City.
What good is a family holiday vacation if everyone isn’t entertained? Park City is more than its two world-class ski resorts. Main Street offers more chefs per capita than Paris and endless adventures for the non-skier. Live out your dream of bobsledding at Utah’s Olympic Park, the official site of the 2002 Winter Olympics. Experience nightlife like never before at one of the dozen pubs, clubs or live music venues on Main Street. Staying on Main Street not your style? Park City’s free town-wide shuttle will take you from Canyons Village to Deer Valley Resort and everything in between.

Autumn in Park City, Utah. When the temperatures cool, the town begins to stir, and the mountain biking trails just keep getting better. While Park City is known for its two world class ski resorts and abundant nightlife, you’ll be remembering the pristine bike trails you left behind in the dust. Here are the top 5 reasons to bike Park City this fall.
1. Park City was named IMBA’s first gold-level Ride Center in the world. With over 450 miles of bike trails, there’s something here for everyone. Take a crack at Deer Valley Resort’s famous Tidal Wave flow trail or opt for the breathtaking Wasatch Crest Trail.
2. Fall is the perfect time to discover Park City via bike due to the fall foliage. With the turning of the oak and aspen tress, blurs of yellow and red dance along the mountain bike trails. Who thought Park City could get any more beautiful?
3. No one knows how to après-bike like Park City does. Outside Magazine named Park City the “Best Town Ever” in 2013 and we’re pretty sure it has to do with our unrivaled Main Street. Ride all day at Park City Mountain Resort and finish off with a flight of whiskey from High West Distillery. Bike-in/bike-out is the new ski-in/ski-out.
4. Mud season. Yes that’s really a reason. The off-season, as the locals lovingly refer to as mud season, means less people on the trails and more room for you. Enjoy the Mid-Mountain Trail like never before without the crowds or the rush.
