      Does anyone know the Ski conditions at Park City, Deer Valley or Alta this week?

      by GracesTrips Online Now Mar 17, 2015 at 9:01 AM

      We're going to Utah for some skiing this weekend. If I purchase the lift tickets online beforehand, there is a significant discount. But, the weather is in the low 60's and wondering what the conditions are. Do I buy an all day lift ticket or a half day lift ticket. I really don't want to ski in "slush" if the snow is not holding up in the afternoon. We're staying in Park City but Alta is only about 30-45 minutes away. So, just wondering if that is any better. Thanks for your help!

      Driving winter Park City Utah to Breckenridge CO

      by Touchstar Online Now Jun 2, 2014 at 12:06 AM

      We are skiing the Canyons for a week in early Feb 2015. Would you recommend against driving at that time of year to Breckenridge CO?
      We have driven in the past from Denver up to Breckenridge but are considering driving from Utah rather than flying next time from SLC to Denver and then driving.
      Is the drive from Utah similar in road conditions from the east?
      Thank in advance.
      Kind regards,

      Apres Ski

      by giampiero6 Online Now Mar 22, 2010 at 2:00 PM

      Hi Guys,

      I'm heading off to Park City for a couple of days at the end of March and wonder if anyone has any great tips for places to eat (hidden - local preferred spots) and a good place for some apres ski.

      I'm glomming onto a trip with brother and nephews, so I don't have a ton of research yet. I'd appreciate any help anyone has.

      I like wine, lively spots, nature etc.

      Thanks in advance for any help.

      Oh and what do you guys think is the best spot to ski? Deer Valley? I'm an advanced skier but not as ambitious as I once was. Like going fast, but not the bumps. (we'll be skiing mid-week at least 3 days)

    • Condo at Christmas 2008

      by SouthFloridaMom Online Now Aug 20, 2008 at 3:50 PM

      I'm looking for a condo in Park City for Christmas '08 (12/24 - 1/1). Any suggestions on when to book for the best deals? We are interested in a nice place with kitchen that sleeps 5 in beds (2bedroom+loft or 3 bedroom) for500 or less per night and prefer to be within walking distance of lifts. Right now it looks like a LOT of availability! Any recommendations out there? Any suggestions for deals?

    • restaurant deals

      by jacquelinefrieda Online Now Jun 22, 2008 at 9:24 AM

      We got a GREAT deal on a place to stay in Park City this summer. We cannot spend a lot to eat though so we are looking for the best restaurant deals. good restaurants cheap or places where you can get gift certificates for a deal. In St. louis one of our radio stations posts restaurant gift certificates for half price and then they sell a certain amount for the deal price. Does anyone know of anything like that for restaurants tht aren't too pricey to begin with? THANKS (anything in Salt Lake would be interesting for us too.) I have heard that PC is pricey. Also what else shouldn't we miss while there?

    • Summering in Park City with the family?

      by robertpetry Online Now Mar 13, 2008 at 9:02 PM

      Hello all!

      I need some advice from those of you who live in or frequent the mountain time zone in general and Park City Utah in particular. I travel quite a bit and work out of my home in the Midwest. It recently dawned on me that I could work out of anywhere from Ohio to Utah and it would make no difference as long as I was w/in 30-40 minutes of a major airport, had Sprint cellphone service and a high speed internet connection.

      So I have decided to take my wife and our two elementary school aged children and "relocate" for the month of July. We talked about it and would like to go somewhere that is not too hot, has many activities including hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking, etc. local. We have wanted to take a trip out west and I think a month based in someplace like Park City is the perfect answer. We can take a couple of long weekends and go to Arches and Yellowstone, visit Sundance and downtown Park City. PC seems to have everything I need.

      So my questions are:

      1. Is Park City a good choice for this? I will need to travel for business to MN, Chicago and Omaha and probably others during the trip so proximity to a major airport is important. We also want to go someplace where there is a lot to do!
      2. We want to rent a 2+ or 3 bedroom condo (we need a master bedroom, kids bedroom and a temporary office) for the month of July. It needs to be fairly nice, have a pool, nearby bike trails and a central location or easy bus access. Air conditioning would be very good. I have seen ads online for Town Pointe, Red Pine (Canyons), Prospector Square, All Seasons, Park Meadows and Bear Hollow. Which would be best? Why? Any other suggestions?

      Finally, I will be in PC next Friday afternoon and Saturday (March 21 and 22) and would like to look at a couple of places.

      While this is obviously not ski related, I know there are a lot of PC regulars who's input will be very valuable to me and my family. We are looking forward to a great trip and a whole month to experience a new part of the country!

      Thanks in advance for your suggestions and help!

I haved looked online and there doesn't seem to be any hostel type accomodation anywhere in Park City, there is only fancy hotels charging hundreds of dollars a night. I am so desperate I don't mind staying in a spare room of some nice persons house. Is there any forums or anything where people rent spare rooms or anything? Or if there is anywhere cheap to stay.

    • Skiing and drinking in Utah

      by ciarrai Online Now Nov 10, 2005 at 2:05 PM


      I`m thinking about going to Utah to ski over Christmas. Right now, however, the accomodation prices I´ve been quoted are really high ($1800 for 9 nights in a 1 bedroom with kitchenette) but maybe that´s the way prices are of Christmas. Does any one have any good tips for cheaper accomodation in this area or some good websites I can go searching through. Is Park CIty more expensive than the other resorts in Utah? I`ll be flying to Salt Lake City so I like the fact that it´s so close to the airport - are other places more conveniently located
      Another thing - I´ve been reading up on liquor laws and can´t seem to find the answer to whether you can bring alcohol into Utah or will someone go through your luggage at the airport?

      Thanks for your help
