So, it’s winter. And you’re a skier. Which means you can’t help but monitor the snow reports in resort towns, and you’re salivating over the ski vacation pics in your social media newsfeed. But you don’t have to resign yourself to staring at photos and lamenting your shortage of paid time off. With just 72 hours, you can have an incredible ski weekend in Park City, Utah. We promise.

Famous for powder skiing, Park City, Utah, features two world-class resorts just 35 minutes away from the Salt Lake City airport.

Getting to a ski resort in most mountain towns can be a headache. You have to first fly in to a major city, rent a car, and then take on a multi-hour canyon drive through traffic to reach the slopes. Not so in Park City, Utah.

Park City Mountain Resort features several events that make spring skiing extra special.

When the tail end of ski season is upon us and spring skiing is in full force, it’s a bittersweet time of the season. You’re running out of time to ski, but you’ll also find longer days, more sunshine, warmer patios for après-ski, and a handful of annual end-of-season events. Park City, Utah, happens to be an ideal place to visit in the springtime for all of those reasons.

High West is one of Park City’s favorite spots for après-ski drinks.

In a town known for its blend of fine powder and hot spots worth savoring, it would be hard not to have a good time in Park City. In fact, thanks to the presence of two world-class ski resorts and tons of ski-in/ski-out lodging and eateries, the number of options are almost dizzying for those who aren’t from around the area.

Park City was a mining town long before it became a ski destination. 
It was once deemed a ghost town.

That’s right. Park City, Utah, now one of the most buzzing destinations around, has been through some rough-and-tumble times. The now resort town was once the site of a silver mining boom more than a century ago.
