About Park City

Nestling in the shadow of the Wasatch Mountains, east of Salt Lake City, is Park City. Home of the Sundance Film Festival, the 2002 Olympic Park, several world-class ski resorts and a beautiful, otherworldly landscape. Bordering the slopes of two ski resorts, the Main Street is lined with elegant 19th century townhouses, built from the proceeds of the silver mining boom. After the boom the city declined with it, until the tourism trade which was built around the Sundance Film Festival and the ski resorts, took its fortunes to new fever-pitch levels. A great base camp for conquering the slopes during wintertime, and to top it all off, it is surrounded by hot springs and as such, the city teems with glorious spas. In many ways it is a North American Alpine retreat, snug and compact, surrounded by forests and mountains lined with hiking and biking trails, brimming with excellent gourmet restaurants and bars, and some of the wildest bobsleigh and toboggan rides you may ever experience. And while some of the best places to stay in Park City may require deep pockets, they are all luxurious and rejuvenating stays, and our Guru’s list of recommendations start from around $300 per night.
