Thanks to social media and wifi everywhere, planning a trip has never been easier.  However, finding an expert with firsthand knowledge is a gem worth its weight in gold, or in Park City’s case, silver! 

Park City Mountain Resort's Mountain Host

You’re off to a good start by reading the posts on the Snowmamas blog.  If you’re still wondering about mountain offerings, feel free to “Ask a Snowmama” where you’ll receive a quick response tailor-made to your needs. 

While at Park City Mountain Resort, look for the Mountain Hosts in the Resort Plaza during the ski season.  These friendly folks wear bright blue Park City Mountain Resort jackets and name tags with their home town listed.  The Mountain Hosts can direct you to where you need to go and the best ways to get there. We met fellow Floridian Peter during a recent visit.  His friendly advice led us right where we needed to go which saved us precious vacation time.  These Mountain Hosts are there to help make your vacation as fun and easy as possible.  Seek them out and you might even make a friend.

Park City Visitor's Center

No matter what the season, we always stop by the Park City Visitor’s Center at Kimball Junction to pick up an events calendar and learn about new restaurants, Olympic training schedules, and current cultural programs.  Maps to snowshoe trails in the winter and bike trails in the summer with up-to-date tips on trail conditions help us determine which routes are best to explore.  The “art pianos for all” display was a hit with the kids.  This program pairs local artists with donated pianos. The artists decorate the pianos which are then placed throughout Park City and Summit County.  We played a few tunes on the piano while the teens surfed the free wifi.  Be sure to grab a snack or some hot tea at the onsite café.   

Finally, while driving through town remember to tune your car radio to KPCW 91.9 for local news, weather, events, music, and more.  Hearing the voice of the Park City community will have you feeling like a local in no time.  You might even be giving advice to others during your stay!
