The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Ski Unreal Powder in Park City

With the Sundance festival behind it, Utah's tony resort town readies big discounts for its perennially snowy spring.


1. Where to Stay

The Chateaux at Silver Lake  

Located mid-mountain in posh Deer Valley, the cushy Chateaux at Silver Lake (from $510; prices drop after March 25) places skiers just a boot-shuffle away from the high-speed quad lift to majestic Bald Mountain. The four-story hotel has a mix of spacious multiroom suites and Murphy-bedded studios, most with flip-switch fireplaces, roomy jet tubs, and homey (if generic) chalet décor.

The Treasure Mountain Inn (from $225) offers a quirky alternative to the corporate-resort competition. Rooms are owned (and therefore decorated) by individual families with varied tastes, but all make use of the hotel’s prime, top–of–Main Street location, chlorine-free therapy pool, and hand-picked DVD library.

The Washington School Inn bed-and-breakfast (from $175) sits on dead-silent Park Avenue, just two blocks from Park City Mountain Resort’s Town Lift. The 1889 landmark's original coal-storage room has been remade into a street-level sweat lodge. Splurge on one of the top-floor suites: They’re less cramped, and their windows aren’t blocked in by the hillside. (Irony alert: This ex-school no longer welcomes children as guests.)

Easily the cheapest option in town, bare-bones Chateau Après ($90 for two people), near the base of Park City Mountain Resort, is made for ski rats who just need a clean place to sleep and (possibly) shower.
