For my spring break, T, our two friends and I headed out west to visit and ski in beautiful Park City, Utah. We ate, drank, shopped and skied through the weekend and had a blast. We decided to make our ski trip an annual vacation and I cannot wait to go again next year. Below I am going to outline some of my favorite aspects of Park City in hopes of helping out anyone who is visiting soon!
Where to stay
We stayed at an Air BnB and I honestly think this is the best option. We stayed at a two bedroom condo walking distance to main street and the slopes. We took an uber from the airport and then walked everywhere for the rest of our stay. Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom and we had a kitchen where we made breakfast in each morning and a living room with a fireplace. The condo also had a hot tub that felt amazing on our sore muscles after skiing. We got all of that for $170 a night. It had so much more bang for your buck than a hotel.
Where to shop
Where to eat/drink
Yuki Yami – We ate here on our first night solely because our friends saw Justin Bieber eating here last time they were in Park City. Although we didn’t see the Biebs, the sushi was delicious. They sat us at a table with a hole in the middle so you feel like you’re sitting on the ground but you don’t have to sit criss cross. The sushi was all extremely fresh and I also had the house salad which was also amazing.
High West Distillery – Since we were with two men who love whiskey, we had to stop at High West Distillery. We sat outside by the fire while the boys sipped on their drinks.
Zoom – This was my favorite meal we had in Park City. I saw this restaurant Park City travel guides so I knew we needed to visit. We started off with the fried brussel sprouts and truffle mac n cheese (these two are a must if you go). I had the “Grains and Greens” as my main meal which is a salad with faro and quinoa with green goddess dressing.
Davanza’s– This was the perfect post ski-meal when you look like a hot mess and you’re tired and you want something casual and delicious. Davanza’s has a bar like atmosphere that serves pizza and other bar food.
No Name Saloon – We came here for drinks on our last night and we loved the authentic Park City vibe. It was packed with locals and tourists and we had a great time.
Atticus Tea and Coffee – A great breakfast or coffee/tea spot. They have something for everyone – a breakfast burrito for the boys and a smoothie bowl for the girls.
Bahnof Sport Ski Rentals – We rented our skiis, helmets, and boots from Bahnof ski rentals on Main Street. The rentals here were significantly cheaper than the rentals on Park City Mountain. The only downside to this is that you do have to carry your skiis up and down some hills to get to Park City Mountain.
Park City Mountain Ski Lessons – My friend and I took ski lessons on our first day. I would recommend this to anyone who is not an expert. We paid $199 each including a lift ticket (the lift tickets are usually around $134) and basically had an all day private ski lesson. The were only four people in our group (including us) and our ski instructor was amazing! If you ever go and need a ski lesson, request Bill!
Buy ahead of time to save money – You can save a little money by reserving your ski rentals and buying your lift tickets online 24 hours in advance
Spring Skiing – We went the first week of April and the town was practically empty. We had all the restaurants, stores, and mountains to ourself. People may assume that the first week of April is too late to go skiing but the skiing was wonderful, it wasn’t too cold, and it even snowed while we were there!
I hope you all enjoyed my Park City recap! Feel free to email me/DM me if you have any questions. Thanks for stopping by!
