First Time to Park City Guide



Description:

Home to the three world-renowned mega ski resorts and the glitzy Sundance Film Festival – Park City is no ghost town these days. Once the site of the largest silver mining camp in the nation, the eventual collapse in silver prices and the resulting town decline earned Park City a spot on a list of ghost towns of the west just a half a century ago.

The popularity of skiing resurrected the old mining town into what it is today. Most visitors are drawn to Park City to ski the famed slopes, partake in the lavish spas and elegant eateries, and revel in the celebrity scene.

Park City had 27 saloons lining Main Street during the mining boom, but these days Main Street is lined with high-end boutiques, art galleries, outdoor clothing stores, wine bars, and quite possibly more restaurants than permanent residents.

Although Park City appears to be a luxurious ski destination that caters to an upscale crowd, there are still many remnants of its debaucherous mining past strewn throughout the city.

Day 1 - Park City


THINGS TO DO
Odds are good that your first trip to Park City is a ski vacation. Deer Valley is one of the finest and most luxurious ski resorts in the country. The skier only resort caters to the upscale skier with fine dining and lodging options and miles and miles of immaculately groomed carpet. Neighboring Park City Mountain Resort appeals more to families and The Canyons is a great choice for the advanced skier looking for off piste adventures.

Downhill skiing is not the only way to enjoy this beautiful mountain town. The Park City area has many groomed and maintained trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. One can also easily spend a day touring around the shops of Main Street and checking out museums of Park City’s mining and Olympic past.

Day 3 - Park City


NIGHTLIFE
Drinking has always been a little easier in Park City when compared to other parts of Utah. But a recent change in Utah liquor laws has now made getting a drink in Park City even easier. As of July 2009, memberships are no longer required to enter a Utah bar making Utah ‘almost’ like everywhere else. The ski areas have great bars for grabbing a beer après ski and Main Street is lined with plenty of hip clubs and chill lounges.

Day 4 - Park City


LOCAL RECOMMENDATIONS: SPAS
Park City has nearly as many spas as it has restaurants which is no surprise since a day out on Park City’s stellar slops can lead to some awfully sore muscles and the dry climate and high altitude sun can wreak some havoc on the skin. Choose from a wide variety of massage treatments and energetic body wraps and scrubs. Also, to relieve tight muscles give a private yoga lesson a try.
