Park City, Utah Skiing With The Family

It’s been awhile since the entire family went west, but it was time! I had a few snickers when I announced our plans to embark on a ski adventure with the entire family to Park City, Utah during the Sundance Film Festival. But, then again places that people don’t think of as typical family travel locations, festivals or events are what draw me in.

Our trip was quick – four days, but packed with fun. The Canyons was an awesome place to rest our heads and enjoy lots and lots of onsite activities. We opted for a two bedroom, three bathroom full kitchen condo at the Silverado Lodge. It was perfect for the five of us and reasonably priced too. We found a package deal through AMEX Travel.

The girls were able to partake in ski school and I took a refresher course myself. I caution the ski school prices seemed high, but in comparison to other ski resorts, they are pretty much standard. I have to add that ski school was totally worth the investment.

The layout of this place is absolutely incredible, with eclectic food and drink options around every corner, but relaxed enough to pop in with the entire family. Plus, crazy, amazing views everywhere you look! Shuttles run regularly, which was important because the Silverado Lodge was a short walk to the main lodge.

Soaking in the beautiful scenery

We were in town during the Sundance Film Festival and were able to explore the town of Park City and soak in the hustle and bustle of the festival. We didn’t catch a flick (I wanted to get on a wait list), but our time was limited and the ski weather was just too good to miss. Truly our favorite area for relaxing at The Canyons, was the Ski Beach. This was the prime location for food and drink as well as snow play and catching all of the action.

We’ll be back to The Canyons next year for sure! On our return, we plan to exploring more of downtown Park City… if we ever leave the Ski Beach that is.
