It’s a refreshing and exciting thought to know that you’re packing your bags and heading to Park City in the name of a ski-focused getaway. This world-renowned ski destination draws visitors from across the map each winter when the fresh powder falls. Between the stunning scenery, amazing slopes, easy access to trails, and delicious après ski options, it’s no wonder Park City is a place that tops traveler’s lists time and again. When you’re lucky enough to have five days to spare in the name of vacation fun, the following ski journey itinerary is a great place to start when you’re ready to maximize every single moment in the great outdoors.
The first day of your skiing journey to Park City brings you to the iconic Park City Mountain Resort. Here, plan on spending the entire day enjoying a world-class ski location where you’ll have access to a wide variety of runs that are designed to accommodate skiers of all ages. In total, there are more than 7,300 skiable acres to check out and from base to summit, you’ll find a vertical rise of over 3,200 feet. The resort is packed with terrain parks and half-pipes showcasing exactly why it was chosen to host the Winter Olympic games once upon a time. This resort typically receives 350 inches of snow on average annually which is dry and fluffy—ideal for time on the slopes. New skiers can book lessons with top-rated instructors and try beginner hills before putting their skills to work. There are a wide variety of ski rental gear options on-site as well as dining destinations to enjoy when cravings come calling. Even if you don’t spend a lot of time skiing, you can savor spectacular sights from the lifts.
The second day of your stay is dedicated to time well spent on the slopes at Deer Valley Resort. Here, you can make the most of a day of adventure and fun with family and friends at your side. Typically, you’ll find fewer crowds to contend with at Deer Valley Resort because skier numbers are purposefully limited daily. That makes for a more intimate skiing experience on your itinerary that still includes all of the features and amenities you would expect for a top-rated ski resort. There are rentals and lessons available on-site as well as lifts, lodges, and exciting trails to discover.
The third day of your skiing journey to Park City brings you to Woodward Park City. Located at 3863 Kilby Road, Woodward Park City is a hub for outdoor recreation in the winter featuring a forested mountain complex where guests can spend time skiing as well as snowboarding and tubing. It’s a wonderful stop mid-way through your stay when you’re traveling with family and have kids of varying ages looking for something to enjoy that suits their interests and outdoor fun style. There are sports training options for experienced skiers and snowboarders while those who are new to skiing can take advantage of the magic carpet for learning at an easy pace. Whether you’re hitting the tubing lanes or exploring the slopes, it’s a stop you won’t want to miss.
When day four of your skiing journey rolls around, it’s time to tailor your winter fun to your own sense of outdoor adventure. The best way to do that is to head over to the Round Valley Trail System in Quinn’s Junction. This is a place where you’ll find easy access to no less than 15 miles of well-maintained mountain trails to explore. The trails are taken care of by the Mountain Trails Foundation and are frequently used for ski tracking, snowshoeing, and fat-tire biking as well in the winter.
If you’re a traveler that loves cross country skiing, the final day of your stay in Park City should be dedicated to exactly that. Park City has long been a beloved destination among cross country ski enthusiasts looking for a place to pair versatile trails with amazing views. Bundle up and head out with your own gear, or you can choose to partner up with White Pine Touring for a guided experience instead. Across Park City, there are more than 70 km of groomed trails to check out, so you won’t have any trouble finding places to explore.
