Although nothing quite beats spending the holidays in a snow-globe ski town, there’s something to be said for empty lift lines and fresh tracks after lunch. The benefits of coming back for an off-peak getaway or sneaking in some turns before the New Year can also mean great value on luxury accommodations and prime reservation times at otherwise impossible-to-get-into restaurants, making these ‘hidden gem’ weeks a go-to for powder hounds and leisure skiers alike.

If you’re looking to avoid crowds during your Park City ski vacation, we recommend staying during these top 5 weeks:

For Families: December 13-20

Not only is mid-December great for beginner skiers with its empty slopes and not-too-cold temperatures, it also means a whole week of traditional holiday festivities, including a visit from Santa on the Town Lift, live family-friendly shows at the Egyptian Theater and even carolers on Main Street.

Recommended Lodging

Deer Valley Resort: 33 Belle Arbor Home

Park  City Mountain: 816 Woodside Ave

Canyons Resort: Juniper Landing

For Powder Hounds: January 3-10

An ideal week for big snow enthusiasts, early January usually means new storms and great conditions high on the mountain. The post-holiday week also means empty lines at grocery stores, lifts and restaurants, as well as great value on ski-in/ski-out lodging.

Recommended Lodging

Deer Valley Resort: Great Escape

Park City Mountain Resort: Silver Star Condos (Complimentary 5th Night)

Canyons Resort: Red Pine Home

For Culturists: January 28-February 4

The second half of the Sundance Film Festival may still mean crowds in town, but the numbers are significantly fewer than the popular first-half. With tickets become much easier to obtain and practically empty slopes at every resort, this week is the perfect time for culture enthusiasts hoping to enjoy film and fresh tracks in the same vacation.

Recommended Lodging

Deer Valley Resort: King’s Estate

Park City Mountain Resort: Silver Star 2-Bedroom Condo

Canyons Resort: Peak 72

Sundance Resort: Eagle’s Nest

For a Girls’ Getaway: February 5-12

This year, reconnect with old friends over powder runs, apres-ski drinks and gourmet fare. Let us arrange a private chef, wine tasting class, in-home spa sessions or something more adventurous, like yoga in a thousands-year-old crater. All Resorts West homes feature spacious suites with private baths, open living areas and stunning views.

Recommended Lodging

Deer Valley Resort: Gandhara

Park City Mountain Resort: Little Empire

Canyons Resort: Sky Villa

For a Guys’ Getaway: March 21-28

With live outdoor concerts, powder aplenty and lighthearted on-hill competition, including the traditional pond-skimming event during Canyons Resort’s Spring Gruv, the last week of March is an ideal time for guys’ trips. With most family vacations taking place earlier in the month, late March also means empty lines and great value for ski homes.

Recommended Lodging

Deer Valley Resort: Sun Ridge Home

Park City Mountain Resort: Park Avenue Villa

Canyons Resort: Canyons Sanctuary

Park City Mountain Resort will open on Saturday with fresh snow, marking the official start of the ski season. Canyons Resort will follow on Nov. 28 after even more predicted snowfall next week.

The great early-season conditions aren’t just a boon to local skiers. Alpine enthusiasts from Los Angeles to New York can also take advantage of the early season snow thanks to Park City’s close proximity to the Salt Lake International Airport, inexpensive flights and low-season rates at luxury lodging. Here is our guide for sneaking in more early-season runs this winter:

Consider a Saturday-Tuesday getaway for a less expensive flight. Saturday flights are often less less expensive than those leaving on Friday, and for an added bonus, they’re also less crowded. With a 5-hour direct flight from New York and an even shorter airtime from other major cities, you can be the first in your office to sport a goggle tan after three full days of skiing.

Ship Your Luggage. Let us help you ship your ski gear ahead of your trip,  and you’ll walk right on the plane — then straight to your ground transfer. You’ll find your luggage waiting for you when you arrive at your ski home, saving you the hassle of waiting at the baggage claim carousel. In the art of the weekend ski trip, every hour counts.

Stay Strategically. To get the most out of every ski day in the early season, we recommend staying near mid-mountain areas like Silver Lake at Deer Valley Resort (opening Dec. 6), which allow for walking access to multiple chairlifts. Stay at a Main Street Collection home for easy access to dining and nightlife, as well as skiing and snowboarding from the Town Lift.

Make it a Work Trip. With complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access, office support and projector-screen theater rooms in select properties for presentations, taking a few days to revitalize your work team before 2015 has never been easier. Call us for options and available corporate group packages.

Whether you plan to celebrate the first runs of the season with friends or the end of the year with your work colleagues, Resorts West’s signature Private Concierge service can make planning a weekend escape seamless. Call us at 1-877-773-1117 or e-mail to start planning your December getaway.

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.

Call our team at 1-877-773-1117 or e-mail to start planning your 2014-2015 ski season. We can’t wait to welcome you to Park City!

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 

435 Park Ave.

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.

Harmony Haus 

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

Silver Star

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. Most properties feature a private hot tub, and all offer gourmet kitchens and private baths. Main Street Park City is a 5-minute drive away.

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.
