Day 1 – Guided Mountain Tour
Start your vacation strong by grabbing a hearty breakfast at the Alpine Breakfast Buffett at the Grand Summit Hotel in Canyons Village and then head to the Park City Mountain rental location to pick up your equipment for the week. Stop by any of the EpicDay Express windows to pick up your tickets and head to the snow!
Meet your private instructor to start your guided tour of America’s largest resort. While you’re on the mountain, have lunch at the newly added Miners Camp at the base of the Quicksilver Gondola. To cap off a great start to your trip, treat yourselves to fine dining at Legends Bar & Grill in the Park City base area.
Day 2 – Ski From Canyons Village
Satisfy your morning with breakfast for two at Red Tail Grill in the Grand Summit Hotel. From there, head straight to the lifts at Canyons Village. Take your partner on a Peak to Peak Guided Experience to tackle new and more challenging terrain.
When you see the tall, bright (almost neon) green flags on the snow, you’ve spotted our professional EpicMix on-mountain photographers. Capture the moment with a free photo before skiing to Cloud Dine for incredible food and breathtaking views.
End your night with a true village experience with fine dining at The Farm before shopping the stores in the Canyons Village plaza.
Day 3 – Explore the Town
After two full days of skiing, take a break to explore Park City! Take the free transit bus into town for coffee and breakfast at a café or restaurant in town. You can't go wrong with Atticus Coffee, Books, and Teahouse, a small cafe with shelves of books and other interesting trinkets.
The Utah Olympic Park near Kimball Junction has interactive museums to learn about the 2002 Olympic events and venues. More than 60 outlet brands at the Tanger Outlets are also in the Kimball Junction area. The outdoor mall is a great place to enjoy the weather while shopping for deals!
Finally, take a walk down historic Park City and visit the restaurants, bars, and retail shops along Main Street.
Day 4 – Ski Park City Base Area
On your way to the lifts, stop by Jupiter Java in Legacy Lodge. The café serves Starbucks products and other grab-and-go breakfast items.
While on the slopes, ski to the base of Town Lift where you’re walking distance from shops & restaurants in historic Park City for lunch or an après snack. A favorite go-to is the High West Distillery, which is just across the street from the base of Quit ‘N Time run and Town Lift.
Day 5 – There is Only One
You’ve got a lot of skiing or riding to do for your last day so grab some coffee and a bite to-go at First Tracks in Canyons Village on your way up the mountain. Use the new Quicksilver Gondola to cross over the Pinecone Ridge and experience all 7,300 skiable acres!
Take your time to ski any lifts that you haven’t been to yet and enjoy lunch at any of our on-mountain lodges including the newly renovated Summit House at the top of Bonanza and Motherlode lifts.
As the perfect romantic touch to an incredible ski vacation at the largest ski resort in America, reserve a spot on the horse drawn sleigh ride out of Canyons Village.
