With few crowds and great value, December can be the perfect time for your family ski trip.
The lifts are running at Park City Mountain Resort, and we have already seen a white autumn in the mountains — with more snow expected this week! Aside from the fantastic early conditions and a whole new experience to enjoy with 7,500 acres now available between Park City and Canyons, here are our top three reasons to ski Park City this December:
Elevate Your Accommodations
For families looking to get more value out of their ski vacations, the difference between mid-December and Christmas week can mean the difference between driving to the slopes and staying at a ski-in/ski-out chalet. The value often extends to lift tickets, gear rentals and even transportation, giving skiers an elevated experience without the Holiday crowds. We recommend arriving before Dec. 18 for the best value.
Never Wait in Line
The availability of everything from top-notch ski instructors at Deer Valley Resort to reservations at Park City’s best restaurants is much better in early and mid-December than during the holidays, giving you the chance to kick off your year with an expert refresher course on how to tackle steep terrain, a greater abundance of untracked powder, and a gourmet dinner on Main Street without a wait.
Celebrate the Best Holiday Events
The holiday season starts well before Christmas Day, and in Park City the official kick-off involves street-side carols, live family-friendly shows and Santa Claus flying in on a brightly lit sleigh. St. Nick comes down the Town Lift on Dec. 12, while the Holiday Spectacular Sing-Along at the Egyptian Theater starts on Dec. 18. You can also catch World Cup sledding events and other special events at both resorts. E-mail [email protected] for a calendar of our favorite events!
