Need a Vacation? Consider Park City Mountain Resort

I live in the mountains of NC. Well, we call them mountains, but I imagine the people in Park City Utah would call them "hills!" Despite living in a ski resort community, I dream of going out west to the looming peaks and vast views of Utah! When the kids get a little older, we have visions of renting an RV and taking them cross country ala "National Lampoon's Vacation."

No matter what type of skiers or snowboarders you have in your family, Park City Mountain Resort , in Park City Utah, has something for all levels. From the tween who wants to spend all day in the terrain park, to the adults who want to ski Jupiter bowl, to the youngest getting on the lift for the very first time, Park City offers family fun and adventure. Prior to taking a trip, families can even print one of the Family Mountain Tours that make it easy for a group with varying ability levels to navigate the mountain together, taking the guess work out of where to go next.

In addition to its industry-leading Kids Signature 5 Program that guarantees no more than five kids in each class, Park City also offers great off-mountain activities. The Alpine coaster, one of only three in the U.S., is a gravity propelled ride, twisting and turning through the mountains on a mile-long track. At Gorgoza Park enjoy lift-served tubing on seven different lanes or mini snowmobile rides around a designated track for kids ages 5 to 12 years old. Best of all, the historic town of Park City has over 100 restaurants and bars located just 35 miles from the Salt Lake City International airport, making getting to Park City easy. The town also once served as the home of the winter Olympics and still has a fantastic bus system to make it easy to get from place to place.

Park City Mountain Resort also has an Adventure Blog, with helpful articles and tips from moms and dads like us!
