The 2002 Winter Olympics was held in Park City, UT - this is world class skiing/snowboarding. There are three top rated ski resorts within a 5 mile radius of the Park Plaza, a top of the line resort in the middle of Park City.
What makes Park City so special is that the Salt Lake City International Airport is just 25 minutes away! Catch an early flight and be on the slopes by noon the same day.
Skiing Magazine rates the following resorts:
* Deer Valley #1 for 3 years in a row
* Park City Mountain Resort #4
* The Canyons #10
Deer Valley Resort
There is no better ski resort in North America! Deer Valley is 2 miles away from the Park Plaza Resort and the free van will whisk you to and from Deer Valley. Deer Valley is only for skiers - no snowboarders are allowed on the slopes.
There are 2,026 skiable acres with 100 runs.
There are four mountains to ski, Bald Mountain, Flagstaff Mountain, Bald Eagle, and Lady Morgan. The highest mountain is 9,400' with a 3,000' vertical drop.
Service to the mountains is outstanding, 1 high-speed 4-passenger gondola, 11 high-speed quad chairlifts, 5 triple chairlifts and 2 double chairlifts.
There are 6 bowls and 560 acres of snowmaking. Uphill capacity is 46,500 skiers/hr.
Deer Valley is on the free Park City bus route right across the street or take the free van.

The Canyons Resort
Although The Canyons is #10 of all ski resorts we like it the best - we are snowboarders and The Canyons was built from scratch to cater to snowboarders.
The Canyons is just 5 miles away from the Park Plaza and you can get there by the free Park City bus which stops right across the street.
The Canyons base is 6,800' with the highest chair lift at 9,900'. Total vertical rise is 3,190' with 8 mountains being serviced with 18 lifts including one gondola.
There are 167 trails with 3,700 skiable acres and an average snowfall of 355'. There are 5 bowls, 2 terrain parks, and 6 halfpipes - like I said this resort was built for snowboarding.

We had a fantastic Christmas in Park City - thank you for recommending the Park Plaza. We took advantage of the free Park Plaza shuttle bus and it whisked us to and from the Mountain Resort and Deer Valley each morning and evening. We loved our 2-bedroom condo and the kids loved the indoor swimming pool each night. I highly recommend the Park Plaza for families. The heated garage was very nice - packed the family into our rental car and went shopping at Wal-Mart and saved a lot of money on groceries.
We've snowboarded Park City for 10+ years. We love the Park Plaza - its a true 5-star resort in the heart of Park City.
