Park CityUnited States
It all began in 1963, when the first lift was opened on the outskirts of this previously sleepy town, after the silver mining boom in the area came to an end. It was the kickoff for this corner of Utah to become one of the top snow destinations in the United States. Since then, Park City has grown plenty, since joining with neighboring Canyons in 2015, it now offers the largest ski area in the country. The resort boasts over 340 runs and 40 lifts that take skiers on incredible descents on 17 different mountain peaks. The heart of the town of only 8,000 inhabitants is Main Street, surrounded by a historic townhouse that still retains an Old West feel and houses a collection of stores, cafes, bars and restaurants behind its colorful facades. Practically the entire center can be considered ski-in/ski-out – two trails (Quit’N Time and Creole) end at the main avenue, where one of the main lifts (the triple Town Lift) is located. Every year in late January, the Sundance Film Festival takes place, one of the most important film festivals in the world, and the Hollywood atmosphere is established with celebrities attending and the showing of movies at various addresses around town.
