In Park City, close to the golf course but farther from the slopes
When people think of Park City, they think of the resort town Park City Mountain. Park City Mountain is where the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Olympic Team comes to train, and has lots of powdery, challenging slopes, but there are plenty of different slopes for different levels. The mountain originally opened as Treasure Mountain in the 60s, but was renamed in 1996 and today boasts eight peaks, nine bowls, and 16 chairlifts, as well as a snowboard park. During the summer months, the mountain turns into an amusement park with lots of rides, and slopes turn into hiking and biking trails.
This 181-room, mid-range hotel is one of the more affordable in Park City. Though it is a drive from the slopes, a free shuttle bus stops right in front of the hotel, and free parking and Wi-Fi add value. Rooms are large, with empty and flat-screen TVs, but the decor is pretty bland (beige curtains and furniture). Features are few: an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi; small, dated fitness center; the unexceptional Mountain Grill; and a casual bar with little ambiance. Those looking to be closer to the slopes may consider the nearby Silver King Hotel.
