We’ll let you in on one of Park City’s local secrets… One of the best times to ski in Park City is during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, January 15-18, 2016. Park City is welcoming skiers and riders during a weekend that didn’t used to be available to the general public.
Historically, Sundance Film Festival used to straddle this weekend, but visitors no longer have to worry about sold out accommodations and traffic gridlock. In 2013, Park City Municipal Corp. and Sundance agreed to shift the event dates to avoid this schedule conflict during a weekend that many families wish to get away on ski holidays. For the foreseeable future, the Sundance Film Festival has moved its event dates to later in the month (January 21 – 31, 2016).
The MLK holiday weekend offers a great opportunity to experience over 9,300 skiable acres of “the greatest snow on earth©”.
