Sun, Snow, and Sundance
Park City Mountain, UT
Starting this season, neighboring ski areas Park City and Canyons combined to turn themselves into the largest ski area in the country, with 7,300 acres blanketed by Utah’s notoriously light, fluffy snow (350 inches per year!).
THE SLOPES: On a powder day, Jupiter Peak is the place to be. (Hiking the 10,000-foot summit is a fun mission in itself.) When you’re cooked, ski intermediate blue runs down to the Quit’n Time trail, which will spit you out onto buzzing Main Street.
THE VIBE: The Sundance Film Festival has turned Park City into a mini metropolis with a seriously interesting dining scene and quirky cultural offerings but still plenty of ski-town charm. Don’t miss the daily whiskey tasting at High West saloon, where the resident sommelier tour is a must.
THE STAY: Snag a room at the tony Washington School House, a converted hundred-plus-year-old stone boutique hotel.
THE TRIP: Park City is 40 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport, with its several daily nonstops from almost every major city in the country. parkcitymountain.com
