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.
December is one of Park City’s best months for powder
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.
Park City’s Main Street has something for everyone.
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.
