We are on our third visit to Park City Mountain Resort in as many years.  Some people may have uh, um been *concerned* about the amount of snow in the area but there’s no need to worry.  The skiing has been great! Conditions at PCMR are well groomed and runs are ready for you to rip up.  They are making snow and tending to runs nightly!  And lift lines are non-existent, we were buzzing up Crescent and PayDay all day with little to no wait (and no, we didn’t splurge on “Fast Tracks” - but it’s always an option!).  

family-ski (family-ski)Our 6 year old (on his ninth day of skiing after a total of three days of ski school - averaging 1 day per year - we venture out here from Florida!) was cruising down the blues and especially loved the run PayDay yesterday (and the PayDay lift, too!).  The kid has NO fear yet is controlled and listens well (to my relief!) and was linking turns and even starting to pull his skis together!

For those of you hoping to get some skiing in this winter - make no mistake - Park City Mountain Resort is ready for you & your family!  Whether you’re like my hubby and I as veteran skiers, if you’re a novice or an active little youngster like ours, you will find plenty of runs for you to enjoy!  Here are a few pics to prove it!

Great snow making and grooming really are the key. PCMR will have plenty of pow by season's end...but there's great skiing all season long!

Having visited several of the other resorts on the Wasatch Front, I now REALLY appreciate the conditions at PCMR! We're doing fine!
