What is the best time to visit Park City?

Park City’s prime time is the winter. The best time to visit is from December to April, when the city’s famed mountains are chock full of fresh powder, and the city is crawling with skiers and snowboarders. Snowmobiling, sleigh rides and dog sled tours are other popular draws during the coldest months. During the holidays, the city is aglow in lights and flush with festivities, while in January, the city is at its busiest when it hosts the world-renowned Sundance Film Festival and celebrities and filmmakers descend upon the resort town.

Although winter may be the favored time to visit Park City, it isn’t the only time. Those who want to enjoy Four-Star accommodations on a two-star budget would do well to visit during the summer season, when rates are slashed at most area resorts and hotels. Restaurant tables are easier to come by and streets are less crowded, but there are still activities aplenty.

    What are the best activities to do in Park City?

    Comet Bobsled/ Courtesy Utah Olympic Park Here are a few of our favorites. 

    Utah Olympic Park 
    Built for the 2002 Winter Olympics, Utah Olympic Park (3419 Olympic Parkway; 435-658-4200; olyparks.com) is still an active training center for Olympic-class skiers. The Park now offers ski clinics for ski jumping, or mogul skiing.  But those who love speed can go on the Comet Bobsled (see image).  The track is a mile long, and can move along at 80MPH, and it is said, up to five G's of force. The Winter ride cost is $200 a person, the Summer cost is about 1/2 that. But in Winter, ice propels you along, whereas in Summer, there are wheels on the sled, so you are a LITTLE more in control, and it goes a little slower -- about 70MPH -- but not for the faint of heart, no matter what the season.  In the Summer, you can take their Quicksilver Alpine Slide,  go on two Zipline tours, one less intense than the other, or go swimming in their 750,000 gallon pool. While at the Olympic Park you can see the Alf Engen Ski Museum and the Eccles Salt Lake 2002 Winter Games Museum.  The Utah Olympic Park is adjacent to the Canyons Resort. 
    www.olyparks.com

    Canyons Resort
    This resort is north of Park City, and now has over 4000 acres of skiable terrain, and at the base of the trails is their one-of-a-kind Orange Bubble Express  ---  a heated, covered chair lift with seats that can warm to about 55 degrees.  The bubble shield keeps the wind and snow away from the skiers as they go 3/4 of the way up the mountain in nine minutes.  In the Summer, you can take two Zip Tour adventures at the Canyons. One is the Red Pine Zip Tour, that goes over the trees at 800 feet, through the Red Pine Lodge area, and the other, the Lookout Peak Zip Tour, spans 2111 feet, where you go between Lookout Peak and Red Pine Lodge.  Again, NOT for the faint of heart, but it is a lot of fun. 
    www. canyonsresort.com

    Park City Mountain Resort
    This resort has the famous Alpine Coaster, which is a roller coaster, that has a looping curves, up and down, 4000 foot track. You can control the speed, but it is best to let the operator do this. www.parkcitymountain.com

    High West Distillery And Saloon
    This is Utah’s first legal distillery, founded  in 1870. It is downtown, within a few steps of the Town Lift,  a tram that goes between downtown and The Park City Mountain Resort.  There are interesting tours that describe the history of High West and of Utah's relationship with liquor.  The tour also includes seeing the 250-gallon copper pot still, where you can taste the spirits distilled in it.  It must also be said that this Distillery and Saloon has a very family-friendly environment. Chef James Dumas is currently a James Beard Award semi-finalist and his menus include buckaroo plates and mocktails for the kids.  www.highwest.com

    What are the best attractions in Park City?

    Park City at night/Courtesy Park City Chamber Of Commerce Park City is a Winter paradise, where skiing, snowboarding and all other things that demand snow are here for the asking in the Winter Months -- and those months can go often from the end of October until May. This year, 2013, the snow finally ended during the first week of May.  The snow in Utah is dry and powdery, which makes for some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the United States. This is no doubt the reason why Park City was the home to the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.  That said, other great attractions are:

    The Sundance Film Festival,  a festival that takes place annually, where most of the films are shown in Park City.  The festival started to being low-budget, low profile, outside-Hollywood event, but now...is a media spectacle for Hollywood celebrity, and semi-celebrity actors, producers, directors, paparazzi, and multiple entourages.   In 2012, there were 46,731 attendees, making it one of the largest independent film festivals in the United States. Held in January in Park City,  the festival is a showcase for new work from American and international independent filmmakers, who debut American and international dramatic and documentary films, both feature-length films and short films. Group of out-of-competition films are also shown. The 2013 Sundance Film Festival was held on January 17 to January 27, 2013, and will be held January 16-26th in 2014.
    www.sundance.org

    Utah Olympic Park
    The Utah Olympic Park is located in Park City just before arriving to the historic Old Town center.  Things yu can do at the Park include Zip Line rides and bobsled rides, both very FAST!  In Winter, the bobsled track is the same one that was used in the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.  It is one minute in duration, but it is not for the faint of heart and the  ride can go up to 80 mph.  In Summer, the bobsled  still moves, but on wheels, as there is no ice to move it along But is still garners speeds up tp 70 mph.  There is s a ski museum, shops and theater.
    http://olyparks.com/uop/about_us.asp

    Main Street Park City
    The thing is, Park City used to be a substantial mining town in the 1880's, where over $400 million of silver, it is said, was taken from the silver veins in the mountains close by.  AND…in the evenings, miners and their friends, would carouse until the light of day.  Now, the history and the memories of that time are symbolized by historic Old Town Main Street.  Many buildings on Main Street are part of the National Historic Register. Main Street is the heart of Park City, and, though Winter is the busiest time -- there are three world-class ski resorts within minutes of Old Town -- there are still many things to do that don't involve snow. There are art galleries, boutiques and antique stores.  One word of caution, remember the altitude: it is about 7000 feet, so take water and maybe a piece of hard candy with you. Another good thing to remember is that the bus system is free as is the free Historic Main Street Trolley. 
    www.utah.com/parkcity/mainstreet.htm

    Deer Valley Music Festival
    During the Summer, mid-July to mid-August, the Snow Park Lodge Amphitheater hosts to the Deer Valley Music Festival, that often includes the Utah Symphony.  Three  parts to the area: stage left is the blanket side, the middle is reserved, and the right is for lawn chairs. With the blanket side, you can get closer to the stage.  Pack a dinner, bring a blanket, and enjoy the ambiance.

    What are the best hotels in Park City?

    Waldorf Astoria Park City/Susan Kime Best Hotels In Park City:

    The high end branded hotels – St. Regis Deer Valley, The Montage (at about 9200 feet high -- the highest of the high ends in Park City) and the Waldorf Astoria at the Canyons are all excellent hotels and resorts, with great spas and winter/summer activities. I have stayed at all of those, but those chosen below, including the Waldorf, have all those amenities plus something a little extra: The Washington School House, a unique history; The Sky Lodge, larger luxury suites for families; the Waldorf, The Golden Door and Executive Chef Clement Gelas. 

    Washington School House 
    Built as one of the three original schools in Park City, Utah, the school was named for George Washington.   Unlike other buildings and business that perished in the Great Fire of 1898, the hammered limestone façade of the school house survived.  In 1984 the building was purchased and renovated into a bed and breakfast, The Washington School Inn, served its visitors and community well for many years until a new idea – the boutique hotel – emerged. After another renovation, this preserved 1889 limestone edifice reopened in December 2011. This is a beautiful, comfortable place, with a sense of education and history that cannot be torn down now matter how many renovations have been completed. www.washingtonschoolhouse.com

    The Sky Lodge
    There are several luxury hotels scattered around Park City, but the The Sky Lodge is the only all-suite, luxury hotel right IN TOWN, at the corner of Heber and Main.  There are just 33 suites, many large enough to house two families, from 1200 – 2700 square feet each.  It is one block from Park City Mountain Resort's Town Lift, five minutes from Deer Valley Resort and ten minutes from Canyons Resort. And 35-40 minutes from the Salt lake City Airport.  It is quite an elegant place, with its own spa, The Amatsu.  This spa specializes in Japanese Body Ruitals and has an Ofuru, a Japanese wooded soaking tub, an unusual experience it itself.  The Sky Lodge is also next door to Robert Redford’s excellent restaurant, Zoom. 
    www.theskylodge.com

    Waldorf Astoria Park City
    The Waldorf Astoria Park City is the first ski resort added to Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, and is a Four Star Forbes award winner.  Located at the base of Canyons Resorts in Park City, Utah, the Waldorf has 175 guest rooms, suites, and wholly owned residences, all with exceptional views of the ski slopes and the Wastach mountain range.  The Waldorf is a ski-in/ski out resort, with a dedicated Waldorf Gondola that provides year 'round access to 4000 acres of hiking and skiing terrain. The Resort is also home to the exceptional Golden Door Spa, only one of five in the world.  The food is also sublime -- especially at Slopes, the Waldorf's awards-winning fine dining restaurant, under the baton of Executive Chef Clement Gelas.
