After years of planning and building, Camp Woodward Park City will debut its grand opening this December with much anticipation. The Park City community is in for a unique treat as we welcome the fifth Woodward Camp in the US. Starting 50 years ago with its flagship location in Woodward, PA, the Woodward lifestyle has swept the western US with added locations in Tehachapi, CA (outside of LA), Copper, CO, and Tahoe, CA; and that’s exactly what Woodward is… a lifestyle. Woodward has one simple goal: to empower kids to advance in sport through creative expression, technology, music, art, and culture. Whether they’re hosting camps for the next wave of local Olympians or providing easy access to first time skiers, Woodward aims to break down all barriers to getting people out and enjoying life through movement.
Woodward Park City will be a facility to behold, with every inch of the 52,000 ft2 structure thoughtfully designed to be an integral piece to the overall “playground.” For starters, the plaza isn’t just a plaza; every feature of the welcome plaza is designed to lend creativity to the skateboard or Parkour enthusiast. In the winter the stars of the camp are the 22-foot half pipe, slopestyle course, and World Cup certified big air jumps. In the summer the area transforms seamlessly into a mountain biking park with pump tracks and jumps for all abilities. Year-round the center offers a 10,000 ft2 skate park, trampolines, a foam pit, and a state-of-the-art digital media lab to help capture and edit the most memorable moments of action. Locals and visitors alike will be elated to hear that tubing is returning bigger and better than ever with two new magic carpets, plus night skiing will return to Park City once again. Behind all the action, the camp features inspiring sustainability components like solar panels, a living roof, and recycled building materials. Additionally, Woodward Park City will have eight low-income housing units, a restaurant, bar and café.
There’s no shortage of ways to explore everything that Woodward Park City offers. They provide scheduled programming, day and season passes, drop-in sessions, and camps 365 days a year. The park includes features for all ages and abilities with the goal to welcome the entire community. The camp officially opens in November with a grand opening event on December 14. Stay tuned for details, we’ll see you there!

We’re halfway through 2019 and well into summer and while it’s important to live in the moment and enjoy every bit of warm weather recreation possible, there are definitely some compelling reasons to start thinking about winter. Specifically, season passes. There is a myriad of options and a lot of information to sort through, but if you do it now instead of later the cost savings can be really significant. And saving now can mean more time on the slopes in the 2019/2020 season.
To help you get started, let’s talk about multi-area passes. Continually growing in popularity, the Epic Pass and the IKON Pass have quite literally changed the ski industry. Whether you plan to stay close to home and ski at your local mountain all season or vacation around the world, it’s definitely worthwhile to understand how and where these passes work.
The IKON Pass offers two options for the 2019/2020 season. The main distinction between the two are blackouts: The IKON Pass has no blackout dates at any of the 39 resorts in its portfolio; The IKON Base Pass includes the same 39 resorts, with blackout date restrictions.
The IKON Pass offers unlimited access at 14 resorts, including Solitude in Utah. Plus, you get up to 7 days each at 24 other resorts including Deer Valley Resort, Brighton and Alta Snowbird in Utah. Besides lift passes, the IKON Pass has other benefits, such as 10 Friends & Family discount lift tickets (25% off the window rate) and exclusive 15% discounts on retail, food and beverage and summer access at select destinations. The Adult (Age 23+) IKON Pass is currently $1,049.
The IKON Base Pass offers unlimited access at 12 resorts, including Solitude in Utah. And you get up to 5 days each at 26 other resorts including Deer Valley Resort, Brighton and Alta Snowbird in Utah. There are blackout dates for all of these resorts, most notably Christmas week, Martin Luther King weekend in January and President’s Day weekend in February. The IKON Base Pass also offers additional benefits including 8 Friends & Family discount lift tickets (25% off the window rate) and exclusive 10% discounts on retail, food and beverage and summer access at select destinations. . The Adult (Age 23+) IKON Base Pass is currently $749.
Rates for both passes are slated to go up by at least $100 in October, and will continue to go up. For more details and to purchase online go to IKON Pass
Deer Valley Resort continues to offer a range of exclusive season pass options. The Full Season Pass offers unlimited skiing without dates restrictions (even holidays). Also, when you purchase an eligible Full Season Pass, you get a complimentary IKON Base Pass (for yourself – see description of inclusions, above), with the option to upgrade to a full IKON Pass. Deer Valley Resort Full Season Pass holders also get up to 10 days of skiing for friends and family at 25% off the window rate, and 15% discounts at Deer Valley restaurants and retail outlets year ‘round. And there are more inclusions – one complimentary day ticket at Alta Ski Area, Snowbird, Brighton and Solitude Mountain Resorts. Adult (age 23-64) Full Season Passes are currently $2,265 and will go up to $2,766 on October 17, 2019. For more information on the Full Season Pass and other Deer Valley Resort pass options go to Deer Valley Resort
The EPIC Pass offers numerous options at various price points. The granddaddy – The EPIC Pass – offers unlimited access at 20 resorts including Park City Mountain in Utah. It also includes 7 days each at 3 US resorts including Snowbasin in Utah, and 50% off day passes after all 7 days are used. And there’s more – limited access to 6 resorts in Canada, 11 resorts in Japan and 30 European resorts. Passholders receive 6 Ski-With-A-Friend single-day discounted tickets valid at select resorts, and other benefits. The Adult (age 13+) EPIC Pass rate is currently $939.
The EPIC Local Pass is also wildly popular. It offers unlimited access to 9 US resorts and limited access (blackout dates) at 5 more US resorts including Park City Mountain in Utah. The pass also offers access limited to a certain number of days with holiday blackouts at another 5 US resorts including Snowbasin in Utah. If you’re headed to Japan you would have 5 (consecutive) days each at 11 resorts there. Additional discounted day passes are included at 8 North American resorts including Park City Mountain. The Adult (age 19+) EPIC Local Pass is presently $699.
EPIC Day Passes offer flexibility, in number of days – 1 to 7 – and destination; the passes are valid at 26 North American resorts including Park City Mountain and Snowbasin in Utah. The price per day decreases with the number of days you purchase, from $125 for a one-day pass to $105 per day for a seven-day pass.
Prices for all the EPIC Pass options are going to go up in September, and increase incrementally later into the fall. Rate increase dates will be announced ahead of time. To research your options and keep an eye on announcements or to purchase now go to EPIC Pass.
Blowing out the 2018-2019 season with exciting events and Dynamite Deals
The snow is piled up, the days are getting longer, it’s time again for Spring Grüv, Park City Mountain’s 12th annual end-of-season celebration. Park City Mountain will host live music, some huge, free concerts in both Canyons Village and Park City Mountain Village, s’mores, avalanche dogs meet & greet and other fun entertainment every day March 23 – April 7.
The event kicks off on March 23rd with Pink Park City, family-friendly ski day and fundraiser for cancer research. In its second year, Park City Mountain will be covered in pink – pink parties, pink decorations, and hundreds of pink skiers. Pink Park City was started in 2018 and is supporting research for all types of cancer by raising money for Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah.
There are lots of ways to participate, and some fun incentives. Participants can sign up as an individual, or get together and enter as a team. There’s a costume contest, a Chippo contest presented by University of Utah (Chippo is a mash-up of golf and corn hole), and a Checkpoint Challenge – visit different locations to participate in deck parties, giveaways, and activities. There’s also an intriguing diamond drawing sponsored by Diamonds Direct. You don’t need to ski to participate; your registration fee covers all the fun activities at the base.
The day culminates with the Rally for Hope Parade, where participants ski as a group to the base for awards, prizes and a concert by Jamie Drake at Canyons Village. For more information and to register go to Pink Park City
A good plan for each day would be to hit the slopes in the morning and wrap up your day in the afternoon with Après Live Music – different artists every day at PayDay Deck and Umbrella Bar. On several days you can play Megamind PubQuiz Power Hour Trivia, meet amazing Avalanche dogs and enjoy free S’mores. There are Spring Concert Series and Spring Grüv shows featuring a wide variety of music, perfect for kicking back and/or kicking up your heels.
Spring Grüv and the 2018-2019 season wrap up on April 6 and 7 with the 23rd Annual Pond Skimming Contest on April 6. Pond skimming is one of those wild local traditions that have gained nearly legendary status. Contestants must dress in costume – the more “memorable” the better – as they attempt to cross a 100-foot pond on skis or a snowboard without sinking into the freezing water. The pond is at mid-mountain, just outside Red Pine Lodge so spectators and participants will need a lift or gondola ticket.
Dance it out on April 7, scheduled to be the last day of the season. Park City Mountain is going big; the afternoon is packed with music at both the Canyons Village and PayDay Pad stages.
To help you take advantage of the Spring Grüv revelry, Park City Lodging is offering Dynamite Deals: Incredible rates on lodging and terrific free inclusions:
