The Ultimate Family Guide to Spring Skiing in Park City

March 2, 2021 by Jessica Averett

With spring weather just around the corner, right now is the perfect time to start planning the perfect family ski trip to Park City. Spring is one of the best times to plan a family ski trip since the snowpack is high, the weather is a bit warmer and more predictable than it would be earlier in the ski season. Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain are both planning to stay open until April 11th, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the amazing snow. Here are some things that you need to know to plan the perfect family ski trip this spring. 

Family Cross Country Ski Lessons

February 17, 2021 by Jessica Averett

Our family love of skiing runs deep. My husband and I met on a chairlift and most of our kids started skiing shortly after they could walk. Thankfully, our kids are all as obsessed with downhill skiing as their parents are. However, when I suggested that we try cross country skiing this winter, no one was on board. In my kids minds, cross country skiing was boring, slow, and a waste of time. 

How to Snowshoe with Kids

November 17, 2020 by Jessica Averett

Although snowshoeing can look intimidating, what many people don’t understand is that it’s very similar to hiking - just at a slower pace. It’s the perfect winter activity with kids because you don’t need any special instructions or lessons to get started, and Park City is full of excellent trails that are perfect for snowshoeing in the winter. Although it’s easy to get started snowshoeing, it’s also a great workout and is bound to get your heart rate up and your blood pumping! We especially love that snowshoeing is a really family-friendly winter activity, and if you take along a baby carrier or sled, you can even take babies and toddlers snowshoeing with you as well. So if the snow’s getting deep and you’re looking for an easy way to get outside, grab a pair of snowshoes and hit the trail.
