cross country ski Park City versus Midway

My husband and I (in our 50's) are planning a trip to this area. Looking at B&B's one in Midway (Invited Inn) and one in Park City (Washington School Inn). Which would be more convenient for cross country skiing. We're intermediate cross country skiers and just like being outside and don't do anything steep or extreem. Thanks.

The primary trails at White Pine in Park City are golf course with some rolling terrain, all very beginner to intermediate. Soldier Hollow in Midway has a far more extensive trail network with much greater diversity. Of course, you can ski the challenging Olympic trails or take it easy, which is likely more your speed. I'm not certain, but there may be trails on the golf course at The Homestead.

Park City will give you a far greater tourist infrastructure with shops and restaurants. You can walk to many from the Inn. It's a short bus ride or car drive to skiing.

Soldier Hollow in Midway also has tubing, which is a blast.

Have fun.

The drive between Midway and Park City is only about 20 min. so really you can take advantage of both areas. You could stay in Park City if you want to be near some nightlife after you x-country in Midway, or you could stay in Midway if you really just want peace and quiet and don't much care about other activities. Either way, you'll have plenty to do in a very short distance. The cross country choices are better around Midway. Other activities are better around Park City. Washington School Inn gets fabulous reviews and is right in the historic district of Park City. I am not familiar with Invited Inn.
