Holidays in Park City, Utah

santaSnowflakes in Park City, Utah are like sparkling diamonds; no two snowflakes are alike and when the sun hits them, they dazzle the eye. Diamonds are classified by the four C’s; cut, color, clarity and carat. It follows that Park City, during the winter holiday season, should be judged by the four S’s; sleds, skis, snow and stars.

Listed below are some of the best places to ski in Park City or watch skiers and snowboarders snake down the hill in a torchlight parade. If you are lucky, you may even spot Santa or Mrs. Claus shredding the Park City slopes!
