Vacationing in Utah! Park City is a self contained resort town and with all of the fun you will have, it is just the "tip of the iceberg" as far as activities are concerned. It has garnered national and international attention as one of North America's top winter destinations, as much for its affiliation with the "Greatest Snow on Earth" and its being home to two world class resorts. Park City is just 35 miles from the Salt Lake international airport! No other major ski area in the world can make this claim of closeness to a major airport.
Why is Utah's Snow So Light?... The secret to Utah's unique snow is in the huge lake and its closeness to our mountain range. Storms suck up moisture as they pass over the nearby Great Salt Lake and is dropped on Salt Lake's Mountains just miles away. The light powder snow, thanks to the lakes salinity, falls en masse ( appx. 500 inches per year ) upon Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude Ski Resorts creating some of the best powder skiing and snowboarding in the world. Park City's Ski Resorts also benefit from this lake effect snow but not to the effect that the Salt Lake Ski Resorts do.
History & Culture:... Park City was 'discovered' by prospecting U.S. Army soldiers in the late 1800's and was a bustling mining town for many years. In the 1920's, skiing became popular and Park City was a prime destination. Park City Utah is steeped in turn of the century silver mining history. A walk through "old town" reveals renovated miners shacks turned into ski town homes.
The 2002 Winter Olympic Games cast an international spotlight on the town of Park City Utah. With premier snow conditions, ideal terrain and an impressive array of lodges, restaurants, bars and retail shops, the area is a deserving venue. With expansive bowls, groomed World Cup runs, and friendly intermediate terrain, Park City is tough to beat. Park City's Town Lift provides the Old Town with ski-in/ski-out access.
Park City caters to the skier who cares about easy access, great snow and varied terrain, which explains why this resort has proven enduringly popular over the years. Come Ski Park City and discover that lodging accommodations are close to the slopes, with skiing every night of the week, and an average of 380 inches of the fluffy light powder each season make it hard to stay away from this "Snow Capitol." Park City's two ski resorts, Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain Resort which merged with The Canyons during the summer of 2015 each offer terrain to accommodate every whim. While intermediates tend to think of Park City, as "their" mountain, novice skiers thrill to the lengthy ease of Summit House run while experts head to the bowls. Park City is headquarters of the U.S. Ski Team and it shows: exciting moguls runs, racing trails and even a new giant slalom course.

Liquor Laws... While many Utah resorts have made significant upgrades over the last ten years, the most noticeable change for many visitors will be the relaxation of Utah's notoriously strict liquor laws. Once known as a difficult place to get a drink, recent changes to Utah's formerly peculiar liquor laws dispensed with some of the previously required formalities, such as paying a membership fee to drink at a bar. In fact, Utah's liquor laws are now in line with in most other states. Visitors unfamiliar with Utah's previous alcohol scheme will only notice that the DUI/DWI limit has been reduced from .08% to .05%. If you are going to drive, please drive responsibile. Plan ahead, use a designated driver or a taxi or UBER.
