    Posted: Dec/22/2011 at 7:21am
Hey guys happy holidays! I've been boarding for 2 years now and have progressed pretty quickly. We're heading out to Park City Utah January 7th till the 11th. Itll be our first time on a mountain like that since we're from the Annapolis Maryland area.
I wondering if anyone has some tips for the area like which resorts to hit up, we have just three full days of boarding. Anyone know any hot spots to hit in town, we all quit drinking but we're def up for a good time. Should we start at the park city resort? We're staying up by kimball junction park city.
Thanks

Mark

I'm headed there myself the first week of February. So far people have told me to hit up PC, Canyons, and Brighton. Stay away from Deer valley and Alta cuz they suck and/or are skiers only resorts. As for the town, not sure about that. Maybe ask some employees where they recommend.

I keep hearing good things about Brighton. So at the moment I'm thinking park city the first day then its still up in the air when it comes to which other resorts. Brighton, solitude or snowbird.

If you're gonna do Brighton, Snowbird and solitude then maybe look into getting a superpass.

http://www.resortquestparkcity.com/ParkCityQuickStart.htm

take your plane ticket, out of state ID, and this websites voucher and you will receive the same day of your flight free on either park city, canyons or deer valley(skiers only). Its pretty sweet. if not season pass holders there have unlimited buddy passes. So i asked people in the parking lot of canyons for one and its half off the ticket price. I payed the guy ten bucks but still better than 100.

Canyons ended up being a little icy, but all and all it was a great first trip out to Park City for me.

I was kinda disappointed with Park City when I was there. Maybe it's cuz the conditions weren't the greatest. I really like Canyons and Brighton tho. Passed on Snowbird cuz it ws the last day and we just wanted to take it easy before flying out early the next morning. I'll give it another go hopefully there'll be snow next time.
