A Perfect Weekend  in Park City, Utah

Once a silver mining town, Park City, Utah has become a popular resort getaway. Even if you only have a weekend to spend, here’s how to make the most of it.

Park City turns into a winter wonderland when the snow starts to fall, but December and January are holiday high seasons, especially during the Sundance Festival at the end of January. Try February to April for more reasonable hotel prices and fewer crowds.

How to Get There

One of the perks of Park City is its convenience. Book an early flight into Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) to arrive by lunch. To maximize your weekend, book a late return flight and you’ll have two days on the slopes.

A weekend flies by. To make the most of your time, plan beforehand. You can buy lift tickets, reserve your rentals and make restaurant reservations online.

Walk right to the lifts by staying near the base of Park City Mountain or Canyons Village. Popular choices include Waldorf Astoria, Marriott Vacation Club Mountainside, Hyatt Centric, Silver Star Lodge, Grand Summit and Sundial Lodge.

Where to Eat Lunch

Both locals and tourists love Harvest, located at the end of Park Avenue. You’ll find an eclectic menu of traditional brunch items, such as avocado toast, along with Asian fusion specials like laksa soup and Thai beef salad.

Where to Hit the Slopes

In 2015, Park City Mountain combined with Canyons Village to form the largest mountain resort in the U.S., with over 7,300 acres of terrain. This means short lines and more time to hit the fresh pow.
