Resort Information

Beyond the slopes

Have fun exploring the historic streets of this charming town, in particular Main Street. But it’s during the Sundance Film Festival and the subsequent Winterfest – the February celebration of the area's 2002 Winter Olympics triumph with concerts and ice sculptures – that the place really comes alive.

Visitors here can tour the Olympic Park and ride a bobsleigh, luge or take a ski-jumping lesson. Then there's snowmobiling, skating, tubing, snowshoeing, sledding, sleigh rides and more. The town also has a great aquatics centre, which was recently renovated.

Family fun

The ski school's (tel: 1 800 227 2754) ‘Kids Signature 5’ set-up guarantees a maximum of five children (aged six to 14) per instructor, while ‘Kids Signature 3’ caters for children aged three-and-a-half to five with only three children per group.

Child-friendly attractions in and around the resort include Gorgoza Park (tel: (435) 658 2648; www.gorgoza.com/gorgoza), which is 11km (7 miles) from Park City’s centre. Here, kids can go tubing, ride child-sized snowmobiles and have fun in a winter play area.

Retail therapy

Main Street is great for browsing, with 100 shops in or near this central part of Park City. For every Bunya Bunya (11 Main Street), a hip clothing emporium, visitors will find the moneyed exoticism of an Alaska Fur Gallery (591 Main Street) or expensive art galleries.

For low prices and stylish gear, head to Canyons where there are more than 50 shops in an outlet mall selling bargain Nike, Ann Taylor and Ralph Lauren brands amongst others.

Splashing out

Hit the heights of heli-skiing in Utah's Wasatch and Uinta Mountains with Wasatch Powderbird Guides (tel: (801) 742 2800; www.powderbird.com) or Park City Powder Cats (tel: (435) 649 6596; www.pccats.com).
