PARK CITY MOUNTAIN RESORT

BIGGER IS BETTER: PARK CITY

T he town of Park City, Utah rocks. It’s got a vi- brant Main Street, three world-class ski resorts, an exciting dining and entertainment scene and is home to the annual Sun- dance Film Festival. Convenient to get to, Park City is only 40 minutes from Salt Lake City International airport, with several non-stop flights daily from New York’s JFK. For lux- ury travelers and families alike it’s a wonderful year-round destination.

DEER VALLEY is the most exclusive of the trio of Park City Resorts. It features a limited number of skiers per day, no snowboarders and mountain hosts at every turn to simply make your day more enjoyable. It also boasts three of the world’s finest mountain hotels: The Stein Eriksen Lodge, The St. Regis Deer Valley Resort, and the Montage Deer Valley. But Deer Valley’s secret weapon–the thing that sets it apart from any other US ski resort– is undoubtedly the food. Whether it’s the el- egant Mariposa, the romantic Fireside Dining, family-friendly Royal Street Café, or the in- credible Seafood Buffet, it’s nothing short of a foodie feast. Even a quick lunch on the slopes is memorable at the Natural Salad Buffet, with freshly carved meats and world famous tur- key chili. This season brings the debut of the Brass Tag, a casual dining spot with a brick oven twist, a perfect place to meet friends for a cocktail, appetizers or light dinner after a great day on the hill. www.deervalley.com

Park City Mountain, recently purchased by Vail Resorts, has long been the “locals” spot, with one lift rising right up from historic Main Street. Canyons, which has been in the Vail Re- sorts fold for only a few seasons, has come alive under Vail’s guidance and resources. The biggest news for next season has taken the ski world by storm: Vail Resorts will be connecting the two, renamed Park City Moun- tain Resort. Combined, there will be over 7,300 skiable acres of terrain, creating the largest mountain resort in America. Fifty mil- lion dollars of improvements will include an eight passenger interconnect gondola, as well as upgrades to several other lifts and on-moun- tain restaurants. Each ski area is impressive, but combining the two is sure to make for a memorable guest experience. Vail Resorts is the largest mountain resort operator in the United States. Along with Park

City Mountain Resort and Canyons, its ski ar- eas include the iconic Vail, as well as Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone in Colorado; Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood in the Lake Tahoe area, and Afton Alps and Mt.
