For our Salt Lake City / Park City trip, we stayed at Marriott’s Summit Watch Vacation Club Resort. Since it’s a ski resort rather than a regular hotel, it has different amenities, like the kitchenette in each room and the family activities like crafts for kids. It’s super close to everything, including the ski lift. There was nothing ‘wrong’ with this room or the resort, but I’d like to stay somewhere different next time.
The biggest plus of staying here, I think, is the walking trail behind it, which runs along a little creek, and the walkability of the whole town
and the shoe tree is right at the resort too:
Even though it was warm out, the ski lift stays in operation. We were just dressed in our regular street clothes and got on. BTW, when they hear that you’ve never done this before, and they warn you that when it’s time to hop off and to keep briskly walking, take that advice because otherwise, the lift is going to just nearrrrrrly knock you over! Hurry! haaaaaa!
It was time to walk around Park City more — they have these commemorative manhole covers from the 2002 Olympic Winter Games
The whole town is so pretty and walkable. No wonder Sundance is so fabulous (this year it’s January 23 – February 2). This is the Egyptian Theatre.

We really liked staying in Park City for the SLC part of our trip, and I know we’d have a fun time again — just different, because of the season — if we went now. We’d definitely need to bring the boys and start on the bunny slopes; PC has the largest ski area in the country so lots of options. I just checked now, and their high today is 25* and the hotel we stayed is almost booked.
