Park City

+ Great family programs. Diverse terrain.
- Confusing mountain layout.

In this age of modern resorts, luxe comforts, though welcomed by many, can kill authenticity. PCMR has managed to strike the balance between modern and homey. The historic town at the base is connected by a ski bridge to the Town Lift. Within minutes, you’re delivered to a state-of-the-art six-pack accessing 3,300 acres of high-speed groomers and aspen-dappled back bowls. In fact, PCMR has spent more than $10 million in the last two years upgrading lifts, terrain parks and snowmaking without bleaching out the local color. Ripping through ancient glades in Thaynes Canyon or dropping into powdery steeps in Jupiter Bowl, you’ll speed by vestiges of the area’s mining past. This blend of old and new has a comforting appeal. As a reader sums up, “great vibe on the mountain and a fabulous town.” —Carrie Sheinberg

Don’t Miss » Unless you ski in the East, chances are you haven’t skied at night. Go ahead and postpone bedtime. Your kids will enjoy the nocturnal adventure.

Family Activity » Sorry, hardcore ski parents, but the one thing your children will talk about after your vacation is the alpine coaster.

Best Family Trail » Crews groom a different Signature Run daily, allowing young skiers to earn bragging rights—and increased confidence—by conquering new terrain.

From Tahoe to Stowe, resorts celebrate with a bang.

There's no doubt that ski resorts host some of the best holiday celebrations. Christmas, New years, and St. Patrick's Day memories tend to trace back to the mountains. But the fun doesn’t melt away with the snow. In fact, the Fourth of July is one of the best holidays to celebrate among the purple mountains’ majesty. As we salute America's independence, let's recognize there's no better place to celebrate our freedom than the mountains we love to explore. Check out these resorts that host more than a pancake breakfast and parade to help make the season bright.

If you don’t have plans for the Fourth yet, follow Park City Resort’s schedule. Open to both kids and adults, the day commences with the Cole Sport 5k Fun Run followed by, a barbecue, live music, and rugby games in City Park. Shortly after, the parade begins, featuring more than 70 floats that celebrate Park City's history. An Air Force fly-over will conclude the parade, and then it’s back to City Park for more live music, games and a lush beer garden.

After the sun sets, lay out your blanket at the base of Park City Resort for fireworks.
