Skiing at Park City, Utah

Updated: Feb 26, 2021

Park City, Utah offers amazing trails in the Rocky Mountains for skiers to explore. We flew into Salt Lake City and stayed in a rental house on a multi-generational ski vacation when the boys were three and five years old. This was the first place Nolan ever skied, and the first place Matt rode a chairlift!




The kids had the best lessons they have ever had at Park City. The children's building is beyond phenomenal, and the positive attention each child received led to my children begging to go back to class each day. Even though Nolan was only three years old, he cried when he had to leave the ski school each day. That is a sign of an amazing program!



While the boys were skiing with their ski school class, the rest of the family had an amazing time exploring the 341 trails that make up the resort. With incredible views of the Rocky Mountains, I had a wonderful time taking turns down intermediate slopes while Dennis found some challenging blacks.


In addition to slope-side and lodge dining options, the village area at the bottom of the mountain offers excellent dining options. We really enjoyed eating Mexican food and relaxing over an excellent lunch with a waiter bringing us margaritas.


We stayed in a rental house with my in-laws, enjoying every minute of the jacuzzi on the balcony and the heated tile floors. We were able to walk to the ski lift up the street, and had ample storage for our ski gear.

The main street in Park City was easily walkable from our rental house (the ski lift chair and main street are both visible in the background of the photo above), and having a full-sized kitchen allowed us to eat a relaxed breakfast each morning.


The resort offers an incredible array of intermediate runs, with plenty of long green trails for beginners and an assortment of tougher expert runs for those seeking a challenge. The boys tried tubing and playing at an outdoor snow park as part of their après-ski activities, and the adults enjoyed shopping and exploring the main street.

We would definitely like to return to Park City to explore more of the mountain, particularly now that our children (now teenagers) are able to conquer advanced slopes.
