Our first trip to Park City/Deer Valley area - questions

After skiing for several years in CO, we are planning a quick trip in late Feb to ski the Park City/Deer Valley area. Someone told us Deer Valley might be less crowded and since we will be there over a weekend, that is important. We don't have any boarders in the familiy so DV would work fine for us. Also, within DV, which condos are most convenient? Our kids are 5 and 12. Any suggestions are appreciated!

Virtually everything at DV is convenient. Depends a lot on your price point. Black Diamond Lodge at the Snow Park base is great as it's literally on the hill immediately adjacent to the learning area. A lesser expensive alternative just a short distance away is The Lodges.

Honestly, though, there's so much ski in/out on the mountain that you can't go too wrong. You can easily work through Deer Valley Lodging or check around VRBO and other res engines and maybe come back here with some of your findings for more specific advice.

Crowds are not an issue IMO at any of the local resorts but DV is definitely best. Can't imagine any time where you would wait more than 2-3 minutes even on a weekend, and you can always find lifts with zero wait time.

Have fun. I'll be going out there for a few runs this afternoon.

If that weekend is Presidents' Day weekend it will be crowded, everywhere.

Try the Washington School House as well, located right in town, and a block from Town lift. They do have a complimentary shuttle to all 3 PC Resorts as well. Kids love the hot tub and fun turndown gifts.
