Stay at 159 Woodside Ave. within walking distance of Main Street for stunning views and no need to find parking!

Although it’s easy to feel the post-winter blues once the ski season ends in Park City, the silver lining of a gloriously temperate summer is always just around the corner — one filled with live concerts, outdoor markets and gourmet social events on par with major cities.  If Park City isn’t in your summer plans yet, here are 5 reasons we think you should visit this June:

“Asleep at the Wheel” at the Egyptian Theater (June 23-25)

It’s a rarity to hear good old fashioned country rock anymore. If you crave the rhythm of Johnny Cash and the beats of Western Swing, this is the concert you’ve been missing. The 9-time Grammy Award-winning band “Asleep at the Wheel” will celebrate 44 years of country music-making with a rock element that earned praise from Van Morrison.

Savor the Summit (June 18)

Park City’s longest dinner party isn’t just about celebrated chefs and wine pairings, although with more than 20 restaurants in a dozen different types of cuisine, there’s certainly enough to celebrate. This Main Street tradition is also about enjoying Park City’s mountain setting while bringing together old friends and new to rehash the best moments of the last ski season and make plans for new summer adventures, from paddle-boarding to mountain biking. Reserve a Main Street Collection home, and you won’t even need to worry about parking.

Deer Valley Music Festival (Ongoing)

Indulge your inner classical music enthusiast in the stunning setting of Deer Valley’s natural Snow Park amphitheater. No matter your favorite genre (Broadway Pops? Mozart and Mendelssohn?), Deer Valley’s lineup features something for everyone. Your concierge can help you arrange the perfect evening, complete with a bottle of your favorite wine and a picnic. Stay at select luxury Deer Valley properties, and you’ll also enjoy a complimentary 4th night.

Park Silly Sunday Marketing (Ongoing)

This open-air, eco-friendly market is a hidden gem of summer — and not just for art enthusiasts. Although you may indeed find the perfect piece  for your entryway, you’re just as likely to remember the buttery kettle corn, live music and street performers. Walking to this free community event is encouraged, an easy feat with city-wide complimentary bus service and plenty of Main Street accommodations.

Ritual Chocolate Tours (June 23)

Complement your hiking, zip line riding and scenic chairlift rides with one of Park City’s hidden specialties — chocolate. The Ritual Chocolate factory tour and tasting includes an overview of our company, the ethnobotany of cacao, industry history, various tastings of the chocolate during production, a walk through of the full process, and (of course) a tasting. Ask us how to set up a tour.

We’d love to help you plan your summer trip to Park City.

We wish you a very happy New Year from Resorts West!

Every year, many of us in the office make the same resolution. Even though we live in a mountain mecca, where skiing and snowboarding are readily accessible, we never seem to sneak in enough days. So we resolve to get more powder, more first chairs, more time with the family, and simply more time on the mountain. (And with this year’s snow, there’s no excuse not to follow through!)

Because we realize many of you make the same resolution, we put our heads together — and enlisted the advice of some frequent New York and Los Angeles skiers — to help you make it happen. Here are our recommendations:

1.  Learn the art of weekend skiing. Not all ski vacations need be week-long affairs. With direct flights from New York putting skiers on the slopes (not just the airport, but clicked into skis and carving turns) the same day they arrive, the art of spontaneous skiing is easily realized in Park City — using few if any vacation days. “I leave Thursday evening after work and I’m back by Sunday night after two solid days of skiing,” confides one Manhattan skier. “Some people take summer Fridays — I take powder Fridays. I would rather be skiing than in the Hamptons anyway.”

2. Write down your goal. ”I take my resolution to ski more seriously,” says a Los Angeles resident who flies to Park City four times a season or more. “I’m a little competitive, even with myself, so when I say out loud that I want to get, say, 40 days in this year, I can’t go back on it. I’m making that happen — and usually, I’m bringing friends along for the ride.” We can make the accommodations side even easier for frequent flyers by reserving the same condo or private home for you each time you stay. Ask us how to make one of our properties yours for the season.

3. Rent your equipment – and avoid lines, too! Your concierge can arrange to have your rentals delivered and fitted right as you check in, so you are sure to have the right equipment for the conditions. Pack light, carry on, and enjoy more days on the hill. (If you love your skis, you can seamlessly ship them ahead with LuggageForward. We’ll have them waiting for you at your home or condo when you arrive.)

4. Take your business to the slopes. It used to be that big deals (and big plans) were made on golf courses. The same can now be said for chairlifts. A retreat away from the office can help rejuvenate your team and spark creative ideas or provide the perfect setting to launch new partnerships in 2016.  Your concierge can set up everything you need to keep business going without skipping a beat, from high-speed Internet to private meeting space with projector screens and stadium seating.

5. Forget about snow. Everyone lives for powder days — but if you want to get more days in on the mountain this year, resolve to be an all-conditions skier. Up your speed game on groomers, challenge yourself with moguls or explore a new resort. With a dozen ski areas clustered within an hour’s drive, Utah makes this particularly easy. Your concierge can recommend the best ones to try based on your ski style, then help arrange your day.

Need more suggestions? Call us! We are always delighted to offer recommendations or simply talk skiing. Contact us at 1-877-773-1117 or e-mail

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 for a calendar of our favorite events!

Featured Ski Homes

Cloud 90 – This stunning ski-in/ski-out chalet now offers out-the-door access to more than 7,500 skiable acres — not to mention a fitness suite, theater, wet bar and hot tub.

Harmony Haus – This 5-bedroom Deer Valley ski home is now ski-in/ski-out, thanks to a newly constructed gondola connecting the property to the resort’s Deer Crest area. The luxury villa also features a theater, private hot tub, gourmet kitchen and stunning views of Lake Jordanelle.

Paintbrush Home – This ski-in/ski-out home in Empire Pass features a custom elevator, kids’ bunk room, a private outdoor hot tub and entertainment room. Complimentary shuttle service makes exploring the shopping, dining and special holiday events on Main Street easy.

Park Avenue Villa – Walk to Main Street, the Town Lift and Park City’s central transit center from this 4-bedroom villa, which comfortably sleeps 14 guests with nine separate beds.

With just two more months until ski season, we’re already thinking of powder days and apres-ski s’mores. As you plan your holiday vacation, here are 5 reasons to get your ski legs back with a long weekend in Park City:

Let’s do this!

1. Empty Slopes, Perfect Snow 

One benefit of snow-making is consistent snow quality, with smooth corduroy to welcome you back to the slopes. Take a few “scenery laps” at Park City or Deer Valley Resort and enjoy the serene pre-holidays atmosphere in town with a quiet dinner on Main Street. We’d love to tell you some of our favorite hidden gems!

2. The Deer Valley Celebrity Skifest 

You don’t need to be a corporate sponsor — or watch on CBS — to see film and television stars test their gate-clearing skills at the Deer Valley Celebrity Skifest. Stay at Black Bear Lodge over Deer Valley Resort’s opening weekend, and you can walk to the action course-side. You may even ride up Sterling Lift with one of your favorite actors. Cheryl Hines, Larry David and Gwen Stefani have participated in the past.

3. Same Skiing, Great Value 

Another benefit to the early off-season is greater availability for private ski homes, which often fill up quickly during the holidays. Consider staying in the first two weeks of December for great snow conditions and value on ski-in/ski-out or Main Street villas with amenities like hot tubs, game rooms, fitness suites and even private theaters.

4. Exciting Entertainment 

See fiddler Eileen Ivers or even Edward Snowden — live from Russia — as Park City kicks off its entertainment season. Catch stand-up comedy on Main Street at the Egyptian Theater and live music ranging from bluegrass to classic mountain rock at Park City’s many mountain bars.

5. No Lost Vacation Days

Finding the time off to sneak in a ski vacation can seem tricky, especially if you’re coming from the East Coast, but with out-the-door skiing in Park City just 45 minutes from Salt Lake International Airport, you can ski a full weekend leaving on Friday. We’ll even ship your luggage for you.

Call us at 1-877-773-1117 or e-mail us to start your ski season in Park City!

Park City and Canyons join to become USA’s largest ski resort as Solitude welcomes the Deer Valley Difference.

Park City Resort Quicksilver Gondola Park City has unveiled a new identity this year, which means thousands more acres under one pass for skiers who have loved Park City Mountain and Canyons Resort on their own. The newly combined area, named simply Park City, will feature 7,300 skiable acres, giving it the largest amount of lift-served terrain in the United States.  The resort-connecting Quicksilver Gondola (pictured) will whisk skiers between the two mountains, making slope-side homes in the gated Colony area, like Sky Villa, particularly fun this year!

The gondola is part of $50 million in improvements at the resort, which also include a new on-hill dining option called Miners Camp, located at the base of Silverlode where guests will offload from Flatiron Lift. With 500 indoor seats, the restaurant ensures that no turns shall be made in hunger. If you’d rather sit outside, we suggest the open-air Silver Star plaza for gourmet fare from the Silver Star Cafe. You may even catch live music!

Where to stay in Park City:

Main Street Park City | Park City Slope-Side | Canyons Village at Park City 

Solitude Mountain near Park CityMeanwhile, Deer Valley Resort’s biggest announcement takes place outside Park City. The resort’s purchase of Solitude Mountain earlier this year means that guests can now experience the Deer Valley Difference in Big Cottonwood Canyon, the ‘other side’ of the mountain less than an hour from Park City. Solitude will enjoy a new high-speed chairlift and ski run this season thanks to the acquisition. Ask your Private Concierge about how to arrange a Solitude ski day! One of the greatest benefits of staying in Park City is the chance to easily experience Utah’s other resorts.

Where to Stay in Deer Valley:

Deer Valley Private Homes | Silver Strike Lodge | More Lodge Condos


With El Nino promising to bring a season of powdery snowfall, Park City is prepared to make it a great year!
