When some of the world’s best skiing is as easy to access as your local mountain (New Yorkers can hit the slopes in Utah more quickly than they can Vermont), it’s hard to justify not simply making Park City your new ‘local.’ With the season starting on Nov. 22 at Park City Mountain Resort, you can get your ski legs back at fall season rates when you stay at a Resort West luxury ski home, making it easier than ever to return for a powder-filled weekend in February or spring skiing in March. Our vacation specialists can recommend the best times to return, whether you’re seeking the season’s best rates or the best weeks for great snow. To become a true local, purchase an Epic Pass to ski Park City Mountain and Canyons Resorts all season long.
Fall season lodging rates are available at all Resorts West properties through December 6, when the Deer Valley Resort ski season begins. Choose from homes near Main Street with private hot tubs and theater rooms, slope-side lodge condos offering ski-in/ski-out access, or spacious chalets with room for the whole family.

Recommended Lodging for Early Season Skiing
The announcement this week that Vail Resorts has purchased Park City Mountain Resort means only one real difference from seasons past — PCMR is now part of the Epic Pass.
This means that holders of Vail’s 2014-2015 Epic Pass will now enjoy unlimited, unrestricted skiing and snowboarding at both Canyons Resort and Park City Mountain Resort — no additional lift tickets required. With the addition of Park City Mountain, the Epic Pass now offers access to 12 total ski areas in Utah, Colorado, California and the Midwest, with up to five additional consecutive complimentary days at resorts in France, Switzerland and Japan. With adult passes now available for $749 and children’s (ages 5-12) for $389, the Epic Pass is comparable to a week of skiing at regular lift ticket prices. Prices are guaranteed for a limited time.
With more than 7,000 combined skiable acres now available with a single pass, it makes little sense to ski anywhere but Park City this year! Pair Epic skiing with equally extraordinary accommodations at one of these luxurious Park City ski homes. Stay slope-side near Main Street or at a spacious villa with a private theater near Canyons Resort. Whichever villa you choose, your stay will include complimentary towel and trash service, a private concierge and full vacation planning assistance, both before and during your stay.
Red Pine Villa
With 6 bedrooms, a theater, game room and private hot tub, Red Pine Villa is the perfect retreat after enjoying more than 7,000 skiable acres between Canyons Resort and Park City Mountain. We recommend renting a car at this villa.
Cottage at Canyons Resort
Ideal for groups of powder-loving friends, this surprisingly spacious 2-bedroom cottage features five separate beds, three full baths and out-the-door ski access. Recover from a day of slaying the Greatest Snow on Earth in the private hot tub or in front of the wood-burning fireplace.
An exceptional value, this 3-bedroom home sits in the heart of Park City, offering easy access to the base of Park City Mountain Resort, Main Street and Canyons Resort. A private hot tub, private baths for each bedroom suite and gourmet kitchen make Little Empire the perfect retreat for friends or a family.

Park City skiers who love food, wine and live music as much as they do slaying powder need not choose between slope-side access and proximity to great restaurants, bars and entertainment venues. In Park City, you can have it all with a luxury villa near Main Street. Located within walking distance of the Town Lift, these five ski homes are also steps away from shopping, dining and nightlife.
1. Woodside Villa

2. Empire Villa
Although you may want to take advantage of Resorts West’s complimentary shuttle service to go the 400 yards to the slopes from this Empire Ave. villa, you’ll find Main Street an easy walk.

3. Snowflake Villa
Situated near the heart of Main Street, this 3-bedroom bungalow is ideal for groups seeking easy access to Park City’s most popular restaurants and live music venues.

If you feel like you’ve done it all for New Year’s Eve — from the obligatory Times Square appearance to black-tie affairs — consider ringing in 2015 in more adventurous style, with first tracks and fresh powder. Some of Park City’s best snow conditions are the first week of January, and between live music on Main Street, nightlife events and champagne toasts at fine dining restaurants, the slopes are often wide open on New Year’s Day.
This year, ski in 2015 at one of theses luxury ski home rentals:
Red Cloud Estate
With 8 bedrooms, a theater, bar, game room and slope-side hot tub, this Deer Valley ski home is the perfect chalet for a group of friends or multiple families. Ask about added Reserve Collection amenities.
Park Avenue Villa
Steps from Main Street, this 4-bedroom home is perfectly situated for groups that plan to experience all that Park City has to offer — on and off the slopes. Access Park City Mountain Resort from the Town Lift, and walk to restaurants, bars and nightlife venues right from your home.
An exceptional value, this 5-bedroom home features a theater, hot tub, two living areas and private baths. The slopes of Deer Valley Resort are a three-minute drive away, and Main Street Park City is less than 15 minutes away. Of course, when you can reserve a private chef and even a mixologist, you may not want to leave the villa.
Silver Star at Park City
Stay slope-side at Park City Mountain Resort and enjoy access to a heated swimming pool, hot tub, fitness center, on-site cafe and sports shop. With 2-bedroom to 5-bedroom options, you’ll find the perfect condo, townhome or cottage for your family or friends.

Finding the right ski vacation home online can be like shopping for shoes — you’re pretty sure they’ll fit, but it would be much nicer to try them on first. With so many variables to consider when renting a chalet for the family, a chance to see the ski access, test the hot tub, catch the view and generally get a sense for the space can greatly add to your peace of mind and excitement for the coming ski season.
Thankfully, you can do just that with a fall getaway to your Resorts West ski home. With off-season rates and low minimum nights, you can enjoy a long weekend during Park City’s most scenic season at great value. While you’re in town, take advantage of locals’ specials at Main Street’s best restaurants, visit the Park Silly Sunday Market (running through the end of September), and take a drive through the colorful Wasatch Mountains. Your Resorts West concierge can tell you all the best places. Get to know your ski home this fall at one of these stunning chalets, all available for the 2014 Christmas ski week:

If you live for fresh powder and untouched snow conditions, you’ve probably already discovered the benefits of staying ski-in/ski-out, but knowing which slope-side chalets offer immediate access to the best terrain can be a little more difficult to determine. We’ve taken the guesswork out of Park City’s accommodations for powderhounds seeking first tracks — no chairlift required.
1. Sky Villa – Canyons Resort
Ski or board right out your door from the 6-bedroom Sky Villa at Canyons Resort. Skis and boots are not included, but you’ll have plenty of room to store your gear. When you return from a day on the slopes, you can relax on the heated deck or grotto-style hot tub.
2. Red Cloud Estate – Deer Valley Resort
Perched atop Flagstaff Mountain, Red Cloud Estate offers first tracks to Deer Valley Resort’s most popular terrain with easy access to the bowls at Daly Chutes — satisfying groomer lovers and powderhounds alike.
3. Mountaineer Ranch – Deer Valley Resort
Perfect for families, Mountaineer Ranch offers access to numerous slopes from the top of Little Baldy peak, including two beginner-friendly runs to the base. Advanced skiers will love the mogul runs and steep terrain of Deer Crest — an area that skiers starting from the base need two chairlifts to reach.
4. Flight – Canyons Resort
This newly constructed home’s out-the-door ski access is just one of its many features, which also include stunning views, a stadium-seat theater, bar and slope-side hot tub.
5. Paintbrush Home – Deer Valley Resort
Nestled in Deer Valley’s Empire Pass area, the ski-in/ski-out Paintbrush home is perfect for skiers seeking Deer Valley’s immaculate grooming. An ideal option for multi-generational families, the 5-bedroom villa features a bunk room and custom elevator.

Planning a ski vacation often can inspire more than a few questions. How close is the ski home to the slopes? Will you need a car?
Whether you’re taking the kids for the first time or have planned more vacations than you can count, this guide offers the collective wisdom of Park City locals and veteran parents to make your ski trip planning a little more seamless:
Tip #1: Stay Slope-Side
Parents who choose ski-in/ski-out accommodations rarely go back to homes away from the base — and for good reason. Staying slope-side doesn’t just mean first tracks in the morning; it also means immediate relief when your 5-year-old announces he’s had enough at 2 p.m. For any parent who has tried to round up the family at the base to drive home (with older kids grumbling that they want to keep skiing), a slope-side ski home makes for happier vacations all around. The freedom to grab lunch when you feel like it or an extra layer is an added bonus; and with complimentary shuttle service through Resorts West, you may not need a car at all. Browse ski-in/ski-out accommodations.
Tip #2: Order Groceries Before You Arrive
There’s no worse way to start your vacation than at the grocery store. Beyond the fierce competition for space in the aisles and the feat of fitting everything in your already-crowded car, chances are high that even if you remember the cereal, you’ll forget the milk. Let a concierge take care of your list before you arrive. Enjoying a glass of wine as your concierge checks you in while the kids raid the fridge for juice boxes is a much more relaxing way to begin.
Tip #3: Pack Light
This may seem counter-intuitive, but we recommend packing light — and this goes for both clothing and ski gear. Choosing a home with a washer and dryer eliminates the need to pack layers for every day of your vacation, and with services like Skis on the Run to deliver and professionally fit your boots and skis, you need not schlep your last-season Rossis. (Try next year’s demos instead.)
Tip #4: Say ‘Yes’ to Ski School
Even if you remember slaying black diamonds with ease and can still envision Johnny’s perfect turns from last season, we strongly recommend a refresher lesson. All of Park City’s resorts offer expertly trained instructors to remind you how to tackle challenging terrain, address inconsistent conditions and steer clear of traffic on the mountain.
Tip #5: Eat In (At Least Once)
Much of vacationing is about trying local restaurants, but sometimes the best memories are made right around the dinner table. Whether your concierge arranges for a private chef to prepare a gourmet feast of classic alpine fare, or you recreate your own family favorites, a night spent at home is one you’re not likely to forget. Choose a home with a theater, like Flight at Canyons Resort or the Ski Utah Home at Deer Valley Resort, and you can give whole new meaning to the idea of dinner and a movie.

Ski trips are more fun when your home has its own fire pit.
Whether you intend to slay Utah’s famous powder or hope to attempt your first double-blue run, there’s no better reward after a day on the slopes than imbibing by the fire pit with friends and victuals. Park City’s culinary enthusiasts have worked hard this year to bring skiers new morning brews, soul-reviving comfort food and even soothing teas.
A few of our favorites:
If you need caffeine to board a chairlift — and prefer that it be delicious — we recommend Park City’s newest coffee company, Publik. The carefully brewed, locally crafted and globally sourced blends preserve the flavor of the beans’ country of origin, making this java as soul-awakening it is eye-opening.
Where to get find it: 638 Park Ave.
Where to stay: Woodside Villa
Comfort in Food
There’s something classically alpine about a good Stroganoff, and The Silver Star Cafe has created a version that even vegetarians can enjoy. Using Portabella, wild and domestic mushrooms, the award-winning cafe (recently featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives) pairs the European-style dish with spatzle.
Where to find it: Silver Star at Park City (the cafe is conveniently on-site)
Where to stay: Choose from 2-bedroom condos to 5-bedroom cottages
Straight from the Brick Oven
From shrimp skillets to tandoori-rubbed quail, Deer Valley’s newest restaurant, The Brass Tag, has expanded the resort’s gourmet comfort food options to the base. Signature dishes include house-cured duck and parma prosciutto flatbread, cheddar truffle chive spätzle and oven-fired chimichurri chips.
Where to find it: 2900 Deer Valley Drive
Where to stay: Racer’s Roost
With a local whiskey distillery, beer maker and now coffee maker, it seemed the only thing Park City lacked was a signature tea blender. Wasatch Tea Company took care of that, offering custom-blended, loose-leaf teas from places like India, Sri Lanka and Japan.
Where to find it: in the comfort of your ski home! Your concierge can deliver it before you even arrive.
Where to stay: Mountain Glade at Deer Valley Resort
