Not to be out-surveyed by Ski Magazine (see the previous www.YouinParkCity.com/blog ), Skiing Magazine has come up with more reasons to visit and enjoy the Park City winter scene. The current edition highlights a survey conducted to identify reasons, other than skiing, why Park City ranks as one of the best ski destinations in North America.
Need your skis tuned? Jans Mountain Outfitters was ranked as the third best in the country. They have stores in town and on the mountain at Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort.
Don’t want a hassle with resort transportation. Don’t worry, it’s free from anyplace in town and from all major resort locations within miles of the three ski resorts. But for a special treat, try the Karaoke Cab (the Music Taxi is also a good ride). It was ranked as the second best value in the survey.
Want to enjoy the après scene after putting in a big day on the slopes? Park City was ranked as the fifth best overall in the country. Best dining was the Seafood Buffet at Deer Valley’s Snowpark Lodge. Butcher’s Chop House downtown received special mention. For upscale dining, Stein Erickson’s at Deer Valley is the only five-star restaurant listed in the survey. And, don’t forget the music and dancing where Harry O’s pulled in top honors. On any night you might see Metallica, 50 Cent, LL Cool J, Nas, or any other nationally recognized personality. See the YouInParkCity.com Events calendar and Dining guide for more info.
If you weren’t a part of this survey, come to Park City to discover the Best for yourself. Chances are you will be coming back for many years to come.
Make your plans to ski Park City’s three resorts – Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort and The Canyons – now. We’ll have the snow ready for you soon. And don’t forget the summertime activities (ask a local and they’ll tell you they moved here for the winter and stay because of the summer). We have some very special, un-crowded things to do until it snows.
Once you’ve experienced Park City, you’ll want to make it a lifetime experience, and any of the agents with YouInParkCity.com can help make that happen. Check out the website, then call or email for more information.
