Winter vacations are the workplaces’ way of telling people they need to get outside and experience the season, and the best way we know to really experience winter is by visiting Park City! Offering a snowy landscape that is so beautiful it will take your breath away and a warm ambience that makes you feel welcomed within your first moments in town, there are lots of reasons to visit during wintertime in Park City and believe it or not, skiing or snowboarding is just a small part of what makes our winter playground so special! This guide to seasonal fun you can have in one of the most beautiful towns in the world will give you a peek into what you can expect when you turn your focus in our direction this winter.
Snow Makes the Season
There are a lot of places n the world that don’t have snow or cold weather in the winter, and quite frankly, we can’t understand the appeal of either! Winter, to us, is a season meant for warm and colorful clothing, being able to see your breath when you talk, and cuddling in front of a roaring fire on the coldest of nights! Irish coffee tastes so much better when sipped on a frozen patio overlooking the mountain and sleep is so much deeper when you are huddled with your favorite sleeping partner, with just the tip of your nose showing above the blankets. Winter in Park City means snowy days and nights, corduroy pants and down filled winter coats, and this is the season when Park City comes alive!
Start the Season Early
To us it is almost impossible to get in the spirit of the Christmas season without snow on the ground and a visit to the Park Silly Holiday Bazaar! Occurring December 10 through 12th at 1800 Park Avenue, it doesn’t matter that winter officially starts about 10 days later, it will feel as if the season is in full swing as you shop for gifts, décor, and seasonal treats that add joy to your day! Most of our Park City Vacation Rentals come with laundry rooms, so you can pack light and save room for all the goodies you will find at the bazaar!
Jingle All the Way
Take the opportunity to feel as if you are a star in your own holiday movie when you enjoy dinner and a sleigh ride through the snow, offered by the Snowed Inn Sleigh Company! Driven by a genuine cowboy, the stars sparkle brightly over the head as you dash through the snow while snuggling against your favorite traveler, listening to the jingling of the bells attached to the sleigh. After, enjoying a hearty and delicious dinner and quiet conversation will give you a night you will remember for years to come. This special event is a very popular one that takes place all winter but is especially enjoyable during the Christmas season and reservations are required.
Sundance Film Festival, January 20- January 30
If 10 days of losing yourself in worlds created by others interests you, or if the thought of rubbing shoulders with the superstars of Hollywood awes you, scheduling your winter vacation to take place during the world famous Sundance Film Festival is the best thing you can do! Offering a hybrid format in 2022, you can participate online from anywhere in the world, but to experience it at its finest, come to Park City and fall in love! With over 120 films to watch from a large variety of genres and a host of other events that will allow you to ask questions of the directors, rub shoulders with the stars, and become a member of the Sundance Institute, helping movies be made and seen!
Explore the Comforts of Your Park City Vacation Rentals Seasonal Sanctuary
Every season is the best season to visit Park City and stay in one of our seasonal sanctuaries, but in the winter there is a special charm to our homes.

Simmering in a hot tub under the stars, watching the steam rise up to the night sky while you try to catch snowflakes on your tongue, marveling in the contrast of hot water and cold air. Choosing to make an early night of it as you climb into our premium beds, perhaps with a fire crackling in the master suite bedroom across from you.
