You already know you can ski out your back door, watch world-class bobsled athletes tackle the same track used in the Olympics, and unleash your inner Shaun White on a World Cup-quality half-pipe (or, if you’re newer to the slopes, ease into black-diamond territory with smooth-as-silk groomed trails).
But did you also know you can perfect your warrior pose in a natural hot-spring crater, try your hand at dog mushing or see Sam Bush in concert?Here are five reasons to visit Park City this February that have nothing to do with its abundant powder, but may just help you cross a few items off your bucket list:
1. Mardi Gras on the Mountain
This year, take your beads for a spin on the slopes before joining Terrance Simien & The Zydeco Experience at the Egyptian Theater. An eighth generation Louisiana Creole, the Grammy Award-winning Simien makes Mardi Gras an authentic experience with his American roots music. The show plays Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening the weekend of February 6. Your concierge can help you secure tickets — and dinner reservations before the show.
Where to stay: Park Avenue Villa. Walk to the theater and the slopes from this Old Town home.
2.Go Sledding — With the Dogs
Few towns let you experience authentic dog mushing, and Park City has some of the best guides in the world. Combine the town’s stunning scenery with expert mushers and friendly dogs, and you’ll leave with an unforgettable adventure for the whole family. Your Resorts West concierge can help you plan the perfect experience.
Where to stay: Red Pine Villa. This 6-bedroom home is within easy driving distance of Park City’s best mushing guides. You can warm up after your outdoor excursion with a dip in the private hot tub or a cup of cocoa in the theater.
3. Crater Yoga
Paddleboard yoga had become an increasingly popular summertime activity, but done in the winter — in a thousands-year-old covered hot spring? It’s not an experience encountered everyday. Park City Yoga Adventures offers a class that combines the healing powers of the hot spring with a playful yoga class that will heal powder-weary muscles and leave you rejuvenated before heading back home. Resorts West can gladly arrange your private class (based on availability).
Where to Stay: Great Escape at Deer Valley Resort. Enjoy a Zen-like neighborhood at this ski-in/ski-out Deer Valley home, which also features plenty of room for a girls’ trip. The 6-bedroom villa comfortably sleeps 12.
4. Weekend Wine Series - Test your knowledge of fine wines and learn about new ones with the Fox School of Wine Weekend series. Miss Fox makes class a lively, interactive experience that even the most novice (and most expert) pupil will enjoy. Reserve your spot in the next class directly online.
Where to stay: Racer’s Roost. This 5-bedroom ski home is near the base of Deer Valley Resort — and your classroom! Your concierge can arrange a professional babysitter during your grown-up evening, and secure dinner reservations after class to test your skills.
5. U.S. Snowboarding & Freeskiing Slopestyle & Halfpipe Competition - Watch the best athletes in the USA, including Sochi gold medalists Sage Kotsenburg and Joss Christansen, compete at Park City Mountain Resort’s Olympic-quality Super Eagle Half-Pipe and King’s Crown slopestyle course. Admission is open to the public; no lift ticket required.
Where to Stay: Woodside Avenue Villa. This 5-bedroom home is 30 yards from Park City Mountain’s Creole run, allowing you to ski nearly right from your door over to the base for all the action. You’ll also enjoy a private hot tub, wet bar and elevator.

As the 2015 Sundance Film Festival kicks off this week in Park City, the town has swelled with famous faces and countless cinema enthusiasts hoping to see inspiring independent films — and, of course, the famous faces behind them. (If you plan to be among them, our guide to Sundance shows you how to tackle the Festival like a local.)
If you seek a different kind of star, then a different kind of Sundance offers all the film excitement of the Festival without the celebrity hype. These luxury chalets at Sundance Resort give you front row seats to star-filled nights, stunning scenery and peaceful days on empty slopes, along with screenings during the Festival at intimate film venues far from the chaos of Main Street. Of course, if you do crave a taste of the “scene,” Park City proper is less than an hour away. Your concierge will be delighted to arrange your ride.
Call us at 1-877-773-1117 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your spontaneous Sundance Film Festival getaway at the real Sundance Resort:
The Eagle’s Nest
Bedrooms: 5 | Sleeps: 10
Stay at this chic cabin and have a roomy place to call home with plenty of parking if you decide to spend time on Main Street. An entertainment room features a projector screen and pool table, while outside you’ll find a hot tub and a spacious deck with a fireplace.
Bedrooms: 4 | Sleeps: 12
This Hobbit-like chalet is fairy tale-like in appearance and practical in function, offering enough space to comfortably sleep 12 guests for maximum value. You’ll also enjoy three parking places for easy Sundance maneuvering and a private outdoor hot tub.
Enjoy these Sundance Resort homes through the end of the ski season.
As one of the most popular times of the year to ski, President’s Day weekend can take some advance planning to ensure a smooth trip. From avoiding crowds to securing dinner reservations at your favorite restaurants, use this guide to make your Park City ski vacation seamless. For personalized guidance, call us at 1-877-773-1117 or e-mail email@example.com.
Make ski school reservations as soon as possible.
Since ski school can make or break your vacation, particularly if you have little ones, reserve your spot before classes sell out.
Let your concierge make your dinner reservations.
Resorts West’s concierge staff has great relationships with Park City restaurants and a deep knowledge of which establishments will work best for your group, whether you seek a fine dining experience or a place for the whole family. Browse some of our favorite restaurants.
Have your groceries delivered in advance.
Avoid long lines at the grocery store and the hassle of loading and unloading a rental car by having your groceries delivered before you even arrive. You can even order items mid-week in case you forgot something. Learn more.
Slope-side access seems like a luxury until you consider the effort it takes to load your group into a car, find parking, fight crowds at the base and round everybody up at the end of the day. Stay ski-in/ski-out to avoid the hassle and let each member of your group ski at his or her leisure. Browse ski-in/ski-out homes.
Be an early bird.
Catch first tracks and avoid crowds by skiing early in the morning, when the less committed are still snoozing and those staying far from the slopes are still fighting their way to the base. Ask your Resorts West concierge about where to start on the mountain for the best conditions.
These 5 ski homes are now available for President’s Day weekend:
Sky Villa – Ski-in/Ski-out at Canyons Resort
Cloud 90 – Ski-in/Ski-out at Canyons Resort
Woodside Villa – 30 yards to Park City Mountain Resort

With powder-perfect snow, out-the-door ski access, award-winning chefs and a live music scene on par with any in the world, Park City offers enough reason to visit all winter long without the added benefit of international sporting events and the world’s largest independent film festival.

Here are our top 5 reasons to start planning your Park City vacation:
1. Freestyle World Cup: Jan 7-10

Where to Stay: 159 Woodside Home.
