There’s so much to love about Park City. A mere 30 minutes Uber drive from Salt Lake City International Airport, the mountain town is home to both Deer Valley and Park City Mountain ski resorts and Alta, Snowbird, Solitude and Brighton just down the road. Add the Sundance Film Festival and the FIS Freestyle International plus a Main Street filled with bars and restaurants and this may just be the best mountain town going.

Coffee and breakfast at Atticus books and coffee store [738 Main Street]. Locals go for the Goblet of Fire Latte, Australians order a single shot 6 oz latte and call it a flat white. Everyone loves the Boo Radley peanut butter house made bars so fill your ski jacket pockets for a protein boost once you hit the slopes. Order a Buddha Bowl oatmeal mash up for breakie and use the free wifi to post pre slope selfies.
Wander over to the Town Lift (chairlift goes directly from downtown) and ride the lift to the Park City Mountain slopes, the largest ski resort in the USA with 7300 acres of skiable terrain. Free ski, take a three day Ski Academy program to improve your technique, hit the terrain parks, hike the bowls of The Canyons or head out to Jupiters Bowl at Park City.
Ski in to The Miners Camp next to the Quicksilver Gondola and indulge in a hot chocolate on the sun deck.
Ski in to Park City’s best kept dining secret, the Silver Star Cafe, for lunch at the base of the Silver Star lift. Choose from artisan pizzas, gourmet burgers, hearty chilli, house made soups and more.
Grab an Ski Uber (the only US state to offer this 4WD service) and hit up Deer Valley resort down the road. Ski past stunning multi million dollar homes, through gladed woods, down the famous groomed Stein’s Way (named after Stein Eriksen). Sorry, no snowboarders allowed.
Ski in to the slope side Montage Hotel for complimentary s’mores by the fire with house made marshmallows in a thousand flavours. Think vanilla, chocolate, pistachio, rose and more.
Channel your inner Rasputin and sip on Veuve at the slope side Veuve Yurt (dubbed the Vurt) next to The Montage.
Head back to your accommodation for a hot tub and to change for more aprés or better still, drop into the town’s local boutiques Cake, Prospect, Panache, Lululemon or Gorsuch and grab some mountain style fashion. Better yet, swing by the best consignment store in all the land – The Exchange Consignment [1250 Iron Horse Drive]. But be warned, you’ll lose yourself in the vintage cowboy boot room.
Time for a cocktail at the only ski in ski out whiskey distillery, High West, in the world [703 Park Avenue].
Make yourself comfortable at Handle Park City, because you may be here a while. The food is so good you won’t want to leave.
Time for a beverage on the rooftop bar at No Names Saloon on Main Street. Don’t forget to look up as you pass through the bar of this iconic Park City destination, expect moose heads, memorabilia and even a motorbike.
Step outside then back in again next door into Oh Shucks where peanuts are complimentary and shells are left on the floor.
Downstairs for a DJ. No, really, Downstairs. This basement bar on Main Street is owned by that guy from That Seventies Show and regularly hosts global DJs.
Take the Karaoke Cab ride home and sing yourself to sleep.
Wake up. Do it all over again.
