Reinvigorate your annual ski vacation this year by turning to the Beehive State, where you may have heard of a travel gem called “Park City.” You won’t be disappointed in this first-rate ski destination. Here are five reasons why you should go to Park City to ski:
It’s Very Accessible
This ski haven is only 40 minutes from the airport, which is a quick jaunt compared to many of the other Park City ski resorts out West that require hours of driving to get there. You really can’t beat the convenience and the perk of skiing the day you arrive without much of an effort.
More Bang for your Buck
Do you tend to get bored on the same old trails day after day? There’s plenty of places to ski and hike in Park City, Utah. Since Canyons and Park City merged, you can buy one ticket and ski both mountains. That’s over 7,300 acres of skiable terrain – the largest in the U.S. For the same kind of “1 pass/2 mountains” hook-up, head to the Chamber for the TRIP pass for a different set of mountains.
“Provable” Bragging Rights
Download the EpicMix app and track your skiing days, vertical feet and lifts rode to earn virtual badges and pins for achieving certain goals. You can also connect with friends and share pictures, among other cool virtual perks.
High West Distillery takes après ski to a new level with a run on Park City Mountain that practically leads right into the whiskey hot spot. The runs are called the “Town runs,” and you can ski right to Main Street, have lunch, browse the town, then hop back on the lift and keep skiing.
No Metro Cards here! Take the town’s complimentary transportation anywhere you want for an easy, affordable and environmentally-friendly way to explore the area.
