Hit the Slopes

Take the hotel shuttle to Deer Valley Resort. As one of the top ski resorts in the US, Deer Valley is a ski-only mountain, featuring more than 2,000 acres of terrain over six mountain peaks and 21 chairlifts.

 

Noon

Seafood Affair

Ski-in (or take the gondola up) to a seafood spread atop Deer Valley Resort. Rime Seafood + Raw Bar is a fine-dining experience that effortlessly blends sea and snow.

 

1:30 p.m.

Après Ski on Main St

Charming Main St still retains its historic mining town vibe, but it has added on fantastic modern restaurants and bars. Check out Old Town Cellars, a winery located in the heart of Park City that blends and bottles its own wines.

3 p.m.

Game Time

Back at Black Rock Mountain Resort, get a friendly competition going in the member’s lounge. If you have kids, they’ll love the arcade next door. Choose from game options in the lounge, which include shuffleboard, Xbox and PlayStation games, ping-pong, pool tables and bubble hockey.

Heat Things Up

As the afternoon begins to fade into evening time, head down to the year-round heated pool and hot tub. The best feature? The entire patio is heated, so you can walk around barefoot on a warm deck, even as the snow glistens nearby.

 

7 p.m.

Wind it Down

After a shower, head down to the Black Rock Mountain Resort lobby to cuddle up by one of two huge fireplaces with a cocktail from On the Rocks. A live piano player will add ambiance while that signature cocktail eases you into dinner.
