Apologies if this has been written before, I am on a bit of a time restraint. We are two Aussies living in Mexico City for the past 10 months who have never seen snow before and are about to move home for good in Jan so we decided to book a quick trip to experience our very first 'white Christmas'. I chose Salt Lake City (over denver) as it was a reasonable direct flight and there is an NBA game on 26th Dec there too (for hubby) so we thought we would fly in the evening of the 24th Dec 2015 stay somewhere that has snow and christmas lights and amazing atmosphere.....for 2 nights then stay downtown SLC for the game on the 26th and fly back to Mexico early on 27th.
Alot of places are booked which I expected but I would just like to know if Park City is the best place for us to go for what we want? or any other recommendations.....also if PC, is the canyon area, base or main street, or deer valley best? we wont be driving so would like easy access, have never been skiing before either so probably looking to just do some tubing, dog sledding etc not really skiing. We are willing to spend extra to stay at Chateaux Deer Valley or Hotel Park City if you think it is worth it, or are some of the cheaper hotels just as good....we do really want a fire in the room to fully embrace the cold christmas!
Any info would be much appreciated.
