At the base of The Canyons Mountain, the largest skiing area in Park City
The largest ski area in Park City and the fifth largest in the U.S., The Canyons is the more laid-back, family-friendly option in Park City. The focus here isn't on partying or fine dining (though it has a bit of each) -- here, it's all about the slopes. There are slopes for every level of skier, and some of the beginner slopes offer the most beautiful views.
The Waldorf Astoria is luxurious in every way, starting with the beautiful lobby -- crystal chandeliers hang from the high beamed ceilings, antlers protrude from the walls (a must in Park City), and leather and dark-wood accents give a dramatic but warm feel. The restaurant and rooms are similarly cozy and upscale, with all rooms featuring fireplaces and large marble-and-granite bathrooms. The pool area is gorgeous as well, boasting magnificent mountain views, but access to it isn't technically free -- it's included in the daily resort fee, as are other "freebies" such as Wi-Fi and parking.
