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.

In the fifth episode of Park City First Timers, Makena goes for the ride of her life in the Winter Comet Bobsled at Utah Olympic Park. Built for the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, the Utah Olympic Park is a 400-acre, multi-use venue. Open to the public, the park also hosts international competitions and is used as a training facility.

Park City, Utah, has become one of the top vacation destinations in the country.

It’s no surprise that Park City, Utah, has become one of the top winter destinations in the country. With two-world class ski resorts, a historic downtown, fine dining, Olympic venues, high-end spas, and incredible Utah powder, Park City has no end of activities for winter visitors.

Park City Mountain Resort is always a great place to start your weekend.

The two resorts’ sizes and breadth means there’s something to entertain the most demanding terrain park adventurer, groomer enthusiast, mogul guy, or powder buff.
