Park City: First Time Trail
In this video, I am snowboarding at Park City. It is Martin Luther King’s Day weekend and I have travelled here with family and friends. Park City is a huge mountain with two sections, a Mountains Village and a Canyons Village. We are skiing in the Mountains Village, the main Park City ski area, which is closer to historic Park City where there are many great restaurants. Park City is owned and operated by Vail Resorts, which growing its asset portfolio of ski resorts through acquisitions. You can ski all week, with these two mountains inter connected to each other.
In these clips, I am snowboarding with my daughter on the learning trail, First Time. This is a huge green trail with a chairlift at the base of the mountain. There are also a few magic carpet areas closeby for beginners. There are many lessons on First Time, but it is very wide with enough space for everyone. My daughter is eight years aged and she enjoyed this trail a lot and was able to go up the chairlift on her own accord. There were two other girls with our group on this trip, so they had fun skiing and snowboarding together.
The conditions were incredible, with powder and snow. I did not see much ice on the mountain, even though there were a lot of visitors. The views were incredible, as you can see in these clips.
Because it was a long holiday weekend, and everything was a little more expensive and there were a lot of people at the mountain. At the trails at higher levels, it was spacious and not too crowded, but at some locations it can acquire congested and you have to be careful not to acquire hit. Believe it or not, I was hit twice from behind by one skier and a snowboarder. They host an annual Sundance Festival in Park City, so if you visit, try to avoid that weekend, which can acquire crowded and even more expensive and even more crowded.
There are many restaurants in Park City to try out, but make reservations ahead of time for dinners. During this trip, our first night there, we had no reservations and instead got take out food from Bangkok Thai on Main and ate it in our airbnb. We had sit down dinners at Grappa and Grub Steakhouse. I have also visited High West Distillery and a few other restaurants. For lunch, instead of eating at the main dining hall, we ate at a restaurant called Baja Cantina near the base lodge, excellent Mexican food.
Park City is only about 50 minutes from Salt Lake City airport. Convenient for us, flew in directly from Boston and rented a car and an Airbnb with friends. On the day you arrive, you can even try to squeeze in an afternoon on the slopes. There are a ton of other ski resorts I the area, but I love Park City. My wife and I have come here before and had an excellent time, so we have come back to meet friends here.
