Park City is expecting another foot of snow this week, trading the April showers expected to hit New York, San Francisco and Chicago for fresh, ready-to-ski powder. So although you could spend next weekend logging miles on the treadmill to avoid sloshing through the rain – you could just as easily be making powder turns all day and relaxing at a luxury condo in the evening.

Resorts West’s signature Private Concierge service makes planning a last-minute ski vacation seamless. We’ll arrange your ground transportation, luggage shipment, gear rentals and lift tickets, and even make your dinner reservations. With direct flights from most major cities and a 40-minute drive from the airport, you could hit the slopes the same day you arrive.

With live music, wine tastings, an Olympic homecoming and new snow aplenty, April might just be the best month to ski Park City all season. Treat yourself to one last getaway to the slopes and enjoy a complimentary 4th night at select luxury condos as you enjoy the top 10 reasons to hit the slopes in Utah this April:

1. New snow! April might mean spring at sea level, but in the mountains it often means more powder.

2. Exceptional value. Enjoy blue-bird days and great skiing at late season rates.

3. Park City Olympic & Paralympic Homecoming Celebration. Join the excitement on April 5 and honor more than 20 Olympic athletes.

4. Live music. Dance to live bands at Canyons Resort and Park City Mountain Resort every Saturday afternoon through the end of the season.

5. Live performing arts. See the New York-based Jessica Lang Dance Company live at the Eccles Center on April 5. 

6. Slope-side BBQ. Rent a luxury ski home with a BBQ grill and turn après-ski into an American spring-time tradition.

7. Fox School of Wine. Sip wine, learn to tell the difference between good and great vintages, and make new friends in the process.

8. Sneak in a game of golf. Ski a few runs in the morning, then play a round in the afternoon. Ask your Resorts West concierge how to do it.

9. Park City Mountain Resort’s Bartenders’ Cup. This must-attend event on April 8 combines mixology talent with balance and dexterity to create one entertaining event. Read more.

10. Experience Park City like a local. As the ”season finale” nears, locals emerge and community events liven the town in a way that shows off Park City at its most authentic. See the legendary Park City Follies, celebrate “Clown Day” and ask for locals’ specials at restaurants. In April, you’re likely to get them.

Yuki Yama is reinvented on Main Street.

With dozens of restaurants on Main Street alone, Park City boasts enough eateries to keep skiers trying something new each time they visit. For the diner who has (somehow) tasted every steakhouse, sushi bar and French bistro in city limits, these five restaurants offer more options for 2014:

The Bistro – Canyons Resort

Serving cuisine described as New American Kosher, The Bistro offers true kosher meals, from kid-friendly Bistro steak burgers to curry spiced lamb shank. Open Sunday through Thursday, this upscale restaurant is conveniently within walking distance of Canyons Resort. Recommended lodging: Juniper Landing

Burgers & Bourbon – Empire Pass

Deer Valley’s newest on-hill dining option offers gourmet burgers, hand-cut fries and old-fashioned milk shakes. Nestled in the Montage Deer Valley at Empire Pass, Burgers & Bourbon is a convenient spot to refuel while on the slopes. The eatery also offers a menu of signature cocktails with an extensive beer and wine list. Recommended lodging: Silver Strike

Billy Blanco’s – Jeremy Ranch

Bill White’s newest restaurant is a bit of a departure from his fine dining empire, and one best enjoyed with a hefty dose of kitsch. Billed as a “Motor City burger and taco garage,” the menu includes everything from tejano smoked beef short ribs to classic burgers. Although the restaurant is a bit of a drive from Park City proper, the chance to see choppers hanging from the ceiling is an attraction in and of itself. Recommended lodging: Red Pine Villa
Although not exactly new, the former Yuki Arashi has undergone a makeover that makes this sushi bar worth a re-visit. Chef Kirk Terashima blends Korean and Japanese cuisine by adding soups and hot plates, including black cod and lamb lollipops. Recommended lodging: Snowflake Chalet.
This year enjoy a night in with Ellie Shropshire, a local chef specializing in simple, healthy fare. Try Rocky Mountain elk tenderloin, Thai chicken curry or pan-seared Utah trout in the comfort of your home. Customize your experience based on your family’s tastes. Recommended lodging: Northside Villa.

For all its light, fluffy snow, blue-bird days and perfectly groomed terrain, Park City draws more than a few travelers for a completely different world-class offering — the food.

The only thing better than Park City’s food? The snow-globe setting of its restaurants.

The Utah Office of Tourism boasts that Park City, Utah features more chefs per capita than Paris, France. A walk down Main Street certainly gives the sense that Park City takes its food seriously, with cuisine ranging from Southwestern to Middle Eastern. Main Street alone is home to four Italian eateries and an equal number of quality sushi restaurants. Park City restaurants recruit chefs from Las Vegas to New York, taking pride in menus that fuse local ingredients with authentic preparation. For foodies planning a getaway to Park City this winter, we recommend turning dining into an experience with these culinary gems:

Fireside Dining – EuropeanStart your evening with a magical sleigh ride and end it with warm bread pudding in front of a fireplace. In between, you’ll enjoy traditional Swiss raclette, fire-roasted leg of lamb and brown sugar roasted acorn squash.

Chimayo – SouthwesternChef Arturo Flores draws on his Mexican roots to create authentic dishes that have made Chimayo a favorite among visitors who wouldn’t dream of skipping this Main Street favorite. We recommend the elk, but only after you’ve tried the queso fundido to start.

High West Saloon & Restaurant – Eclectic - Even those who profess not to love whiskey will find themselves converted by the house-made spirits at this unique saloon. Try the whiskey-infused fondue with a flight of house specialties.

SILVER –  Progressive American -  Dine to a live DJ, then dance afterward in this modern restaurant’s roomy lounge. The only thing better than the atmosphere at this spacious Main Street restaurant is the food.

Private Chef - Create culinary memories in your home with a meal prepared by a private chef. Choose entrees of local Morgan Valley lamb or Utah trout, and eat around your dining room table. For dessert, put an alpine twist on the traditional s’more by roasting mallows around your slope-side fire pit. Where to find a home with a fire pit? We recommend our Reserve Collection.

To plan the perfect foodie vacation, call us at 1-877-773-1117 or e-mail  Browse our Main Street Collection for homes within walking distance of fine dining and family restaurants in downtown Park City.

Between powder-perfect slopes, newly conquered ski runs, apres-ski s’mores and impromptu snow angels at your vacation home, Park City Christmas ski vacations have their own way of creating a family’s most memorable moments. Here are five more ways to make this season’s family ski trip your most unforgettable yet:

1. Have Christmas waiting for your family when you arrive. Take advantage of Resorts West’s Holiday Memories Package and let our concierge team act as your elves. We’ll shop, ship, wrap and display gifts for you, so you can walk into a magical display, straight from Santa’s workshop. We’ll even ship gifts back home to you after your stay.

2. Visit while Santa’s in town. If your children have never seen Santa “fly” into the Town Plaza on his sleigh, make sure to cross this “bucket list” experience off your list while the kids are young enough to enjoy it. Every winter, families gather on the Plaza with hot cocoa and other holiday treats for a magical, brightly lit evening  that ends with a chance to sit on Santa’s lap. Santa will make his appearance on Friday, December 14.  Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. Stay at Northstar Villa, and you can enjoy all that Main Street has to offer without having to drive!

3. Stay at your dream home. A fire pit on the heated deck for holiday s’mores? A projector screen theater? Private hot tub and sauna? Make this holiday special with a home your family won’t forget. We recommend King’s Estate.

4. Splurge on Christmas dinner. Let your private concierge arrange for a chef to create the perfect holiday meal at home. Enjoy rack of lamb, raclette, homemade desserts and seasonal vegetables — all in the comfort of your home away from home. We recommend Harmony Haus.

5. Ride in a one-horse open sleigh. When else can you bring carols to life in a winter wonderland? Take your family on a magical sleigh ride before enjoying dinner at Fireside Dining, a four-fireplace culinary experience at Deer Valley Resort. Try Swiss raclette, cured meets, stews, lamb and freshly baked breads before a grand finale of kuchen and warm puddings. For easy access, we recommend staying in Empire Pass at the Ski Utah House.
