2. Lock in the Best Airfare & Travel With Ease

Winter is the peak season at Park City Mountain’s so it’s important to safeguard lodging early.

4. Leisurely Activity Planning
Booking your winter vacation early grants you the luxury of time. Once you cross accommodations and travel arrangements off of the to-do list, you can explore winter activities at your leisure. Look into skiing, snowboarding, our Alpine Coaster, all of our events, sleigh rides, shopping, dining out, and so much more! 

There’s plenty to do here at Park City Mountain so dive in and start investigating which activities best appeal to you and your family & friends.  

5. Something to Look Forward to
