With its legendary skiing and lively, historic town nestled between the mountain peaks, it’s no surprise Park City racks up accolades every year as one of the world’s best ski towns, and this ski season is no exception. In its list of “Best US Ski Resorts for Families,” USA Today ranks Park City among the best of the best. “There may be no better combination of ski mountain and ski town in all of the world,” raves USA Today.
“The slopes here sit only a 35-minute car ride from the airport in Salt Lake City, a hub for Delta, and an easy place to fly direct to from dozens of cities across the United States and Canada,” notes USA Today. The short flight and drive is ideal for families as traveling is always a challenge with the young ones. The articles also points out that the short commute makes it possible to ski on your last day before flying out that night. That’s something you most likely wouldn’t do, say, in Colorado, where a drive from the ski resorts to the airport could easily go from four hours to seven depending on weather and traffic.
The location isn’t the only thing that is convenient and family friendly about Park City. On the mountain, Park City’s ski school is run efficiently, and parents can go from “ticket counter straight to the snow with the kids, and see ’em off for the day.”
