When it comes to spring skiing, it helps to know which slopes to hit for the best snow conditions. Here are the best mountains for spring skiing at Park City’s three world-class ski areas:
Deer Valley Resort
Recommended Areas: Empire Mountain, Flagstaff Mountain
Recommended Runs: Orion, Supreme, Bandana, Hidden Treasure
Recommended Lodging: Paintbrush, Larkspur, Ironwood
With a deep base and exceptional snowmaking capabilities, Deer Valley is one resort where ski conditions remain silky smooth all season-long. For the very best conditions, head up the Empire Express for fun tree runs and powder-filled chutes. Novices can find great snow on Flagstaff Mountain with three green runs from the top and several groomed intermediate runs down the face. After a day of sunshine-filled groomers, skiers can relax on an inviting ski beach at Silver Lake Village.
Park City Mountain Resort
Recommended Areas: Thaynes Mountain, McConkey’s Mountain, Bonanza Mountain
Recommended Runs: Keystone, Sunrisde, Georgeaana, Homerun, Claim Jumper
Recommended Lodging: Woodside Villa, 435 Park Ave., Little Empire
Expert skiers will have a blast on Jupiter Peak and McConkeys Bowl at Park City Mountain Resort, but families can have just as much fun this spring in the Thaynes and Bonanza areas. The green Claim Jumper run, which is well-covered season-long, allows novice skiers to explore the back side of the mountain, with confidence-building broad blue runs at King Con and Thaynes.
Recommended Areas: Dreamscape Lift, Peak 5 Lift
Recommended Runs: Elk Dance, Apenglow, Harmony
Recommended Lodging: Peak 72, Alpine Sanctuary, Red Pine Villa

Take back your Mancation: Ski. Snowboard. Lounge.
With seven powder-filled ski resorts within 45 minutes of Salt Lake International Airport and some of the nation’s best ski-ins/ski-out access, it’s no wonder Utah has become a “mancation” mecca. And with more than a dozen bars, pubs and live music venues, Park City is a particularly popular destination. Guys planning a spring skiing trip can take advantage of ski-in/ski-out access at Deer Valley, restaurants and nightlife on Main Street Park City, and Spring Gruv events at Canyons Resort — all in the same ski trip.
These ski homes offer enough individual beds to accommodate a large group of guys, and all the amenities for an unforgettable ski vacation:
All home reservations include concierge service, daily housekeeping, complimentary shuttle service and a gourmet kitchen stocked with snacks and locally brewed Wasatch Beer. Guests must be 21 or older. To start planning a guys’ ski trip to Park City, call 1-877-773-1117 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Après Ski Al Fresco
Relax outside after a day on the slopes with the longer daylight of spring and pleasent temps. Enjoy live music on the Silver Star plaza, relax at Deer Valley Resort’s Silver Lake ski beach, or simply unwind on your private deck with a glass of wine.
Park City Film Series
The Sundance Film Festival isn’t the only time Park City celebrates film. The Park City Film Series showcases select features, documentaries and independent movies in a year-round weekend series. This March, visitors can see Bill Murray as Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Hyde Park on the Hudson (screening March 1-3); a documentary featuring National Geographic photographer James Balog in Chasing Ice (March 8-10); Sundance film The Crash Reel on March 13, and costume drama A Royal Affair (March 22-24). See the Park City Film Series calendar for all screenings.
Canyons Concert Series
If Park City hasn’t yet developed a reputation for live music, it’s probably about time. Live outdoor shows, free and open to the public, have become de rigeur in the spring and summer months, and Canyons kicks off the season with an six-week long apres ski series. Running every Saturday at 3 p.m. from March 2 to April 6 with more shows on select dates, the series features mostly reggae and rock bands. After a day on the slopes, enjoy a drink on the ski beach and a lively atmosphere.
Park City Mountain “Snowasis”
Join Park City Mountain Resort for a week of “snow day” celebrations every day on the resort plaza from 3 to 5 p.m. Enjoy complimentary refreshments, surprise entertainment and more outdoor excitement.
Night skiing is open through March 31 at Park City Mountain Resort, and there couldn’t be a better time than spring. Without January’s frigid temperatures, night skiing could be the most fun of your vacation.

Ski trips need not take weeks, or even days, of planning. Thanks to short landing-to-lift times (under an hour in Park City!) and reasonable last-minute airfare, more ski and snowboard enthusiasts from Los Angeles to New York are taking advantage of hassle-free ski weekends.
Here are 5 reasons to take advantage of this growing trend:
1. It’s easy! In Park City, you can ski the same day you land, which means two and a half glorious days on the mountain in a three-day vacation. By taking advantage of a full-service lodging provider, you can arrange your ski rentals, dinner reservations and grocery delivery before you even arrive, thanks to private concierge service.
2. Fewer weather surprises. Flying by the seat of your ski pants means you’ll know just what the weather will be when you book. Hoping for a snow storm? You’ll know if one’s coming. Looking for a blue-bird day? You’ll have advanced notice to bring the extra sunscreen for your ski beach time.
The other important aspect of spring skiing – soaking up the rays on the ski beach.
3. Enjoy great value. From airline tickets to spa reservations, you’ll likely find great value, including a greater chance for upgrades, when you travel last-minute.
4. Improve your skiing. More time on the slopes means more chances to move from an intermediate to advanced skier, or simply to go from “gaper” to ”respectable.” A spontaneous ski weekend is the perfect way to sneak in a powder day or another day to practice those S turns.
5. Experience more terrain.There’s never enough time to fully explore a town, or even a resort, in a single week. A sponstaneous spring weekend allows for all the “wish we’d done that” moments.
Thinking of sneaking some extra ski runs? You can leave tomorrow! Call 1-877-773-1117 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Resorts West’s team takes on The Comet
For all Park City’s waist-high Utah powder, steep groomers and expert-only bowls, the most thrilling experience in town isn’t at one of the three world-class ski resorts. The Comet Bobsled Ride at the Utah Olympic Park, a 60-second ride simulating professional competition, follows the same course used in the 2002 Olympics, taking passengers (often led by a real Olympic driver) through 15 turns covering nearly a mile at up to 80 miles per hour.
The ride is no roller coaster. The crushing weight of 5G’s of force makes for a violent experience through each turn, throwing riders in the back into those in front of them while making an upright position nearly impossible to maintain. Those who sit closest to the driver have a slightly milder ride than those in the back, but the experience in any position far surpasses any amusement park attraction.
Try the bobsled in the summer, too. Photo courtesy Utah Olympic Park.
