When someone mentions Park City, most people usually think of this city in Utah as a winter vacation paradise, where skiing and snowboarding is always on the itinerary. Though this may be true during the cold winter months, this mountain city merits attention throughout the year. If you arrive in the winter with the family, at Park City Vacation Rentals, we provide a wide variety of accommodations in locations such as Deer Valley, Kimball Junction, and within the Canyons. In addition to the superb family friendly Park City attractions, our homes provide their own brand of entertainment that will help ensure your journey is as fun as it is memorable!

In the winter, temperatures in this mountainous region plunge to below freezing; however, with one of our luxurious vacation rentals, you and your family have access to a chalet-like getaway, complete with a cozy fireplace and comfortable furnishings. As you escape the wind, snow and cold temperatures outside, this becomes the perfect opportunity to spend time with the family inside. In addition to stylish and cozy furnishings, the kitchen area provides ample room to prepare a home-cooked meal before the festivities; the dining table also serves as a great place to play board or card games! In terms of electronic entertainment, you can enjoy all of your favorite streaming services on one of the smart TVs, together cuddled with the entire family on the couch away from the elements.
Some of our properties at Park City Vacation Rentals offer different types of old-fashioned board games for all ages, and some accommodations have outdoor putting greens, ping pong tables, propane grills, and of course, an all-important hot tub for fighting off the chill in your bones. In fact, after a long day on the slopes, one of the best things about a vacation in the mountains covered with snow is when you have the opportunity to slip into the steamy, invigorating hot tub that soothes both body and soul.
