Top Reasons to Stay at Shadow Ridge Resort Hotel and Conference Center
The resort is just steps from Park City Mountain Resort’s PayDay chairlift, which lets you access more than a dozen easy, intermediate, and advanced runs. Other lifts and runs are also within walking distance.
You can rent skis and snowboards and purchase lift tickets at Utah Ski & Golf, an onsite ski-rental shop.
The resort is less than a mile from Park City’s historical Main Street, where you can check out local art galleries, boutiques, and restaurants.
After a day on the slopes, unwind in the resort’s indoor hot tub and sauna.
The resort underwent extensive renovations in 2011, including work on the lobby, hallways, and some guest rooms.
Park City, Utah: Historical Mining Town Turned Utah Skiing Mecca
Just across the mountain from Salt Lake City, there is fantastic skiing and snowboarding in Park City at Park City Mountain Resort, a venue for the 2002 Winter Olympic half-pipe and alpine giant-slalom events. Of the mountain's eight peaks and nine bowls, you can hone your skills on more than 114 trails and three terrain parks. The resort is worth exploring in the summer, too; the same lifts that take skiers up to the snowy runs transport hikers, mountain bikers, and sightseers to rugged trails and scenic overlooks in warm weather.
Park City's former boomtown saloons and boarding houses have given way to more than 100 independent boutiques, 30 art galleries, and 50 restaurants along historical Main Street. The 12,000-square-foot Park City Museum chronicles the town’s history with artifacts and interactive exhibits. In the eerie museum basement, you can check out the former territorial jail—nicknamed “the dungeon” for its dim lighting, stone walls, and rusted leg irons. Interactive "Wanted" posters are embedded in the space between the cells; they have videos showcasing the outlaws, murderers, and thieves who passed through the subterranean slammer.
