The air is turning chilly, the leaves are changing colors, and we may even get a flake of snow on the ground. Sure, we are seeing the top of the mountains regaled in the white snow, but ski season isn’t quite here…yet. There are five things to do in Park City you can be doing in the meantime to make sure that you (and your equipment) are ready to go when the resorts open!

Get Your Equipment Ready

Now is the time to get your gear out of storage and get it ready to go. If you are lucky, your board or skis are still in great shape; if not, it’s time to hit the shops that can get them back in tip-top condition.

Replace Worn/Broken Items

Check everything that may be worn out or broken. You don’t want to experience a malfunction or failure on the mountain, so take care of any potential issues now. This includes not only your equipment, but your clothing as well. You don’t want to get to the top of the mountain and find out that your gloves have a hole.

Buy a Season Pass

If you plan on spending a lot of time on those mountains, it’s probably a wise decision to purchase a season pass. Many areas also offer passes that cover several resort areas, such as the Epic Pass. Also, many season passes are discounted before the actual season starts, so you can save a few bucks by purchasing early.

Train! Train! Train!

Get your body in the best ski/board shape possible now. You don’t want to hit the slopes only to find out that you don’t have the stamina to last the whole day. A training program that includes strength and endurance training can help you enjoy the season from the very beginning, and being in shape will also help prevent injuries so you don’t cut the season short.

We are often asked whether to book a ski-in/ski-out rental over another property. Well, the reasons to book a terrific ski-in/ski-out property abound, but here are our top five.

No. 1 — The Location of Ski-In/Ski-Out Properties

Ski-in/ski-out properties are right there on the ski slopes. You will be so close to them, you can just click on your skis and be right on the slopes to start your ski day.

No. 2 — No Lugging Equipment Around

When you are in a ski-in/ski-out property, you don’t have to carry your equipment to the car or bus and then to the slopes. Your equipment will be right there, often in a dedicated equipment room that is just steps from the run. And this is great at the end of the day when you might be tired and you just don’t want to carry that equipment all over the place.

No. 3 — No Excess Walking

With your convenient ski-in/ski-out property, the only walking you’ll do to get on the slopes is to the room that is adjacent to the slopes. No more walking up the hill to the lift.

No. 4 — You’ll Have a Head Start

Imagine waking up to that bluebird powder day and not having to wait to get on the slopes. With that ski-in/ski-out property, you can be one of the first people on the slopes to enjoy that fresh powder!

No. 5 — You Can Spend More Time Skiing

Because you don’t have to travel to the slopes, carry the equipment, or walk to the lifts, you get to spend more time on the slopes and less time getting there.

Other great advantages include being able to stop in during the day and grab a meal or a snack at your lodging. You won’t have to spend time waiting in line, and imagine being able to have your favorites right there! Also, just imagine being able to ski home, get out of your skis, and slide right into a soothing private hot tub. So many ski-in/ski-out properties have that very amenity!

At Park City Rental Properties, we specialize in ski-in/ski-out properties and have many available offerings at all the area resorts. You will be able to find one that will be perfect for you and your group!
