The Olympic Village is right there. You can pay about 80 bucks and get a bobsled ride. It was very fun. How many folks will you have?

A cool thing to do when you need a break from hard skiing, is to traverse across the resort in the morning, to the Payday run, and halfway down veer off to the right to Creole and Town Run. They will take you right over a bridge to the heart of Park City.

You can rent lockers there and hang out in town for the afternoon and evening. It’s a good scene.

Park City was very nice. Lots of restaurants and shops on the main drag. Grappa was our favorite restaurant that we tried, followed by Handle. SLC is so close as well.

We’re headed for thanksgiving lefty so I’ll let you know what we come across.

So far, all I’ve heard that was a must hit was the No Name Saloon

Visit the Olympic Park and the museum there. Park West Distillery is worth a stop. For anyone there during ski season, if you’re intermediate or better, take the Silver to Slopes Historic Mining Tour; fun (and free) way to learn about the mountain and the local history.

My son's 19 and can't get in the No Name Saloon. They have some weird laws over there.

Of course our first day in ski school is Nov 24 LOL

Our vacation plans since COVID have been disastrously funny

Park City Mountain delaying the start of ski season, and others may follow suit

Because of the lack of snow, we had to make some change sbut had a real good time. Ended up driving to Brighton Ski resort (took us about an hour each day) for three days to ski and loved it. So much so that next time we visit we may stay closer to Salt Lake City, drive into Park City for shopping and entertainment and Ski Brighton.

Here are some things we can recommend.

Driving in, stop at Billy Blanco's. Mexican place, motorcycle garage themed. Good happy hour, solid service, food was great and cool ambiance.

Anything you may have forgotten or don't and don't want to buy online, don't. Stop at the outlet mall and get it there. Columbia, Eddie Bauer, Sun & Ski Sports all had gear at steep discounts (ski pants, jackets, base layers, helmets, boots, goggles, gloves, ski socks, etc) far below what I was able to find online before I left and since I have been home for alot of things I've looked at. We even bought an extra suitcase/bag from Eddie Bauer just to buy the extra stuff we found on sale. Columbia had ski socks with the shin padding for $13. Eddie Bauer had 70% off all clearance and I found a ski coat regularly $299 marked down to $150 then 70% off of that ($45 for a ski jacket). Columbia also had ski pants for like $70, base fleeces for under $30, etc.

Yes, No Name is adults only BUT they have an all ages restaurant next door called Annex Burger that was good. Same food, solid service and we enjoyed it.

If you want your typical Park City souvenirs I would recommend Park City Souvenir Co.. It's got your typical souvenir stuff (hoodies, t-shirts, hats, coozies, patches, stickers etc) with real solid prices and while we were there the owner came over and talked to me for like 5 minutes. Real down to earth guy, friendly guy.

Main Street was cool but we didnt buy too much while we were there..nothing we could really fit after all the shite we bought at the outlets

We rented our gear from Aloha Ski Rentals. You can save 25% by booking online and another place we really enjoyed the service and staff. They really went above and beyond in our minds. Helped us carry all our gear to the car (6 sets of skis, 6 sets of poles, 5 sets of boots) and from the car back to the shop once we returned and even stayed open past closing time so my brother and neice could get fitted on the same day and us but flew in on a later flight.

We did a little bit of hiking and really enjoyed the Gambel Oak trail. It's about a 4.5 miles hike with half of the hike overlooking Deer Valley Resort and downtown Park City. had about 700' of elevation gain but doable for my wife (bad knee) and 12 year old daughter. The entire hike took us about 2 hours including photo stops, etc.

Thanks for the report. Did you have your ski rental delivered?

No, we went there and picked everything up. Wanted to make sure we could try on several pairs of boots if needed to make sure we had a good fit. They have a few locations right there on main street so we did it before dinner at annex burger.

Also, the wal mart there does order pick ups so it was super convenient to place our order before we left and just picked it up on our way to the rental.


Also, for smaller groceries and such we went here and it had more than I thought.

And, that market is right by a liquor store so that made it easy...one parking spot and could knock our groceries, beer, liquor and wine

I was in Logan this summer and they had a bunch of extra signage in the store to make sure you KNEW the Budweiser had alcohol in it.
