Splitting 192 miles among 12 friends, running by headlamp into the night and catching a few hours of sleep in a cramped van on the go doesn’t have much of a luxurious ring to it — that is, unless your post-race celebration includes a champagne toast at a plush condo with a private hot tub, steam shower and balcony overlooking the mountains. And let’s face it, after an adventure on foot across much of the state of Utah, you will deserve it!
Resorts West is celebrating the annual Ragnar Wasatch Back Relay with a luxurious lodging package designed to pamper runners after their trek from Logan to Park City, Utah.

The Sprio Artist in Residency studio at Silver Star was first used in Park City's mining days.
Nestled mid-mountain on the slopes of Park City Mountain Resort, the Silver Star lodging community is a picture of mining nostalgia, tucked half a mile away from Main Street with stunning views, an inviting outdoor plaza and relaxing atmosphere. From June 11 to July 23, Silver Star can also add artistic inspiration to its appeal as four visual artists begin residencies in the community.
This wave of artists will be the second this year for Spiro Arts, a nonprofit organization that works to give visual artists, photographers, writers and musicians an opportunity to focus solely on the creative process while enriching the community with their experiences. Artists offer lectures, studio tours, exhibitions and workshops as part of their six-week residency.
Arists attending the 2012 second-term residency include Susannah Mira, a mixed-media artist from Philadelphia; Becky Alprin, a sculptor and painter based in Chicago; Rosemary Feit Covey, a painter from the Washington, DC area; and this session’s token male, Suk-Jun Kim, a South Korean musical composer now living in Scotland.
Spiro Arts has hosted 32 artists since 2008 in 11 different mediums, ranging from fiber sculpting to filmmaking. More information is available at the Spiro Arts web site.
The Silver Star at Park City community features condos, townhomes and cottages designed in the style of Park City’s mining days. Guests enjoy a heated swimming pool, private hot tub, outdoor fire pits, on-site cafe and bike shop.

Many people know the merits of visiting Park City over Christmas and throughout the frosty winter months, but few have caught on to what a hidden gem Park City can be, even (and some would argue, particularly) with weather climbing into the 50′s. Where else can you ski freshly groomed snow in the morning, enjoy a round of high-altitude golf in the afternoon, and top it off with a biking tour of stunning scenery the next day?
Here are 5 more reasons to visit Park City in April:
1. It’s an event-filled time to be in town, with no shortage of entertainment on and off the mountain. Whether you like stand-up comedy, ballet, wine classes or film, there’s something for everyone.
2. You can have all the fun without the crowds. You’ll find parking spaces for restaurants and shopping; live music without a cover; and wide open slopes at the resorts.
3. The weather is great — for skiing, golfing, biking, hiking, running and mountain climbing. You can even kick-start your fitness with a Park City personal trainer.
4. Visit after Park City’s lifts have closed for a yoga retreat or relaxing spa weekend and enjoy off-season rates for lodging, fine dining and shopping. You can still ski Alta Resort on the weekends through April 30.
5. Spring is an incredibly relaxing time to take a break from everyday life in the mountains. Take a post-tax holiday and soak in a slope-side hot tub, relax in your own sauna or simply bask in the views from a mountain home.

Spring is a beautiful time to relax in the mountains
