New York Times: 36 Hours In Park City

The New York Times has this interesting article describing one writers experience spending 36 hours in Park City. The guy has some insights that others can use to enhance their visits, whether they are skiing at the local resorts or just enjoying the town’s ambiance. Below are excerpts from the article..

TO ski or not to ski. That’s the luxury of Park City, Utah, the rare ski resort that offers lively diversions on and off the slopes.

But its best asset may be location: Park City is 30 minutes from Salt Lake City and a short hop to several of the most popular slopes in the Rockies.

As dusk shrouds the Wasatch Range, the Old West-style storefronts of Main Street light up with the hubbub of shoppers and après-skiers.

One of the underappreciated things about Park City is that the entire town is practically ski in/ski out. A triple lift on Main Street whisks riders to the Park City Mountain Resort…

fter an exhausting day of skiing, there’s nothing like soaking half-naked with a bunch of tipsy strangers. That’s the idea anyway at SkyBlue, the rooftop bar at the Sky Lodge, Park City’s hippest hotel..

See how the pros do it. Built for the 2002 Winter Olympics, the vertiginous Utah Olympic Park (3419 Olympic Parkway; 435-658-4200; olyparks.com) remains an active training center for Olympic-class skiers.
