Spring is in the air, and people are hoping that the snow melts soon as they think about putting away their winter clothes to prepare for warmer temperatures. But not so fast – Park City still has plenty of snow with a deep base, established after the winter storms. In the less than an hour, you can be in one of several resorts, and spring temperatures are warmer with longer days, giving you plenty of time to navigate the slopes. With plenty of sunshine to attract visitors, consider a spring visit to Park City.
Park City opened for the season on Nov. 21, 2015, and is not scheduled to close until April 17, 2016. However, snow conditions could possibly delay or accelerate the closing date, which could affect the listed date. In addition, you can find plenty of great deals at nearby resorts, making a spring trip even more attractive.
- If you’re looking for a romantic getaway, stay at the Double Tree by Hilton for as low as $152 per night. Better yet, they often have a deal where the third night is free along with a free lift ticket.
- If you have a lot of people and still want the luxury of a private hot tub, take advantage of the reduced price of $46 per person, per night in a private home that sleeps 4 adults through Airbnb.
- Large groups are welcome at Bear Hollow with a ski-in, ski-out option and private hot tubs. They offer spring specials that can save you up to 35% on your stay.
Less than 10 minutes up the road from Park City, Deer Valley features upscale amenities and is known for prime skiing conditions. Local resorts offer free parking shuttles, free ski valets and onsite shopping and dining. The ski slopes emphasize grooming and limit the sales of ski tickets to avoid overcrowding. However, you can still find end-of-the-season deals.
- For the luxury of resort living, try the Black Diamond Lodge, located right on the slopes. They offer a “Late Season Family Value Package” near the end of the season with a minimum 3 night stay. Kids ski for free and you can save up to 20% on lodging, lift tickets and rentals.
- The Comstock Lodge is a great option with ski in and ski out capabilities.
- Fawngrove Condo – If you’re looking for a great private condo, Fawngrove sleeps up to 6 people and is just minutes from Deer Valley.
Snowbasin is only 33 miles north of Salt Lake City, on the back side of the Wasatch Range. They get great snow all winter and their estimated closing date isn’t until April 12. They have 106 trails and gorgeous facilities. When you’re finished skiing in 50+ degree weather, enjoy their Apres Music series with a fresh brew or hit the hot tubs to relax those muscles. We love Snowbasin and know you will too. Here’s a few places to look into for a good night’s rest:
- Lakeside Resort Properties is ten minutes away and gets a 5 out of 5 on tripadvisor. They have hot tubs, full sized kitchens, and full concierge services. You can get a 1-4 bedroom condo with either daily or weekly rates and a minimum 2-4 nights stay.
- Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City is a short drive from the slopes but offers all the perks of the big city – food, shows, shopping, and more. A stay here is worth the $300 per night.
- Comfort Suites in Ogden offers a great Snowbasin package: $158 per night plus tax and it includes one Snowbasin Ski Resort adult day lift ticket per paying adult, per day. You also get a complimentary HOT breakfast, free wifi, and free parking!
Just an hour from Park City is Alta Ski Resort. The conditions are gorgeous and this resort is known to stay open late into the season. It’s estimated closing date is April 26th. Open since 1938, Alta was the first Utah ski resort with a lift. Since then, they’ve grown with multiple lifts, lodging, family amenities, and so much more. This mountain is prime for skiing, even well into the spring season.
- Alta’s Rustler Lodge – Sleep up to 6 with comfortable space and amenities in one of their Superior Corner Rooms for $589 a night.
- Snowpine Lodge offers a beautiful room sleeping anywhere from one person to eight people. The prices vary but often times during the spring season, you can find a good deal online.
