Average time to visit
The ski season in the United States is longer than that in Europe. Most resorts open sometime in November, with Thanksgiving (the fourth Thursday in that month) being a common opening time, and stay open until mid to late April. The exceptionally high altitude means December through to February can be extremely cold, with temperatures sometimes reaching as low as -12C, although the skiing conditions remain very good. Warmer temperatures in the Spring mean more variable skiing conditions and softer, forgiving snow.
To start planning your vacation to Silver Star
Silver Star at Park City, Utah, is a luxury resort village, at the base of the chairlift, with ski in/ski out access to some of North America's finest skiing. Beautiful lodges and all the facilities of a ski resort, Silver Star is great value.
Silver Star is located at the base of Park City Mountain Resort, right next to the Silver Star chairlift. A mix of luxury condos, town houses and cottages combining historic buildings from Park City's silver mining days with modern architecture, make this an engaging and welcoming mountain community. Skiers have instant access to a vast terrain of over 3000 acres, and what American's call the "best snow on earth", whilst the other resorts of Deer Valley and Canyons are just minutes away.
The luxury lodgings are distinctively designed, both inside and out. The architecture is rustic charm with a mix of stone, wood and metal and old Olympic posters adorn the walls. They are all fitted with top-of-the-line appliances and luxury mountain decor, and inside you'll find all the modern convenience and quality you would expect in a relaxed, cosy setting. Each luxury condo, town house or cottage provides spacious living and kitchen area, hardwood floors, flat-screen TVs, walk-in closets and luxurious baths. The resort has a heated outdoor pool, heated underground parking, ski storage lockers, a rental shop and a complimentary shuttle service. Concierge staff are always on hand to answer any questions or organize activities that the resort has to offer, such as snowmobiling, snowshoeing, sledging or sleigh rides.
The town of Park City is nestled high in the Wasatch Mountains and boasts some of the best snow in North America. Formerly a mining town, it is home to three world class ski resorts, Canyons, Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort (PCMR), making it one of the largest ski areas in the States, all of which are covered by one pass. It offers a fantastic range of recreation, as well as sophisticated dining and nightlife, all within a short drive from Salt Lake City International Airport. It was the epicenter of the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games and offers exceptional skiing for intermediates and experts. Wide slopes are great for children and beginners, with very professional ski schools offering great tuition. With nearly 400 pistes, it's difficult to imagine there's more to do in Park City than world-class skiing or snowboarding, however, if you're a thrill-seeker, you should visit the Olympic park and try the Olympic Bobsled run. The park also houses a fantastic museum which is worth a visit. An extensive choice of shops, bars and galleries can be found on Main Street Park City, an historical landmark which you can explore by trolley tram.

Each mountainzone features different types of terrain so that skiers of nearly all abilities can benefit from the incredible skiing available.
Learn to fly on the Flying Eagle, a zip line which starts and ends in the same place. Alternatively, try tubing at Gorgoza Park with its seven tubing lanes and let the kids loose on the Mini Snowmobile track or at Fort Frosty play area.

Silver star is a great option for those looking for a more independent ski vacation in Park City. Location wise, its great as you are straight on the slopes and with an on-site ski hire shop and lift tickets available at the reception it makes it a hassle-free start to the vacation. Families looking for self-catering would be well suited here as there arent any hotel bars or restaurants. Condos are great value for larger groups or families, and some have hot tubs on the balcony.

This accommodation is based around a plaza which makes a fantastic community and a wonderful place to stay for families. From visiting Talullah and Vidalia, the resident dogs at the ski rental shop, to watching live music at the silver star cafe this little makeshift town is just fantastic. I would recommend the cottages for families traveling together and looking for a high level of luxury. There are great art pieces on the wall and amazing views across the resort.
Location & directions
Park City, Utah
How to get there
The easiest connections are through Dallas or Seattle from London Heathrow with British Airways and then onto Salt Lake City. It's a 9.5 hour flight to Dallas or Seattle followed by a 2 hour flight to Salt Lake City. It is then only 45 minutes by car to Silver Star, making it possible to even ski the same day. Salt Lake City connects with over 70 US cities, so works extremely well with adding another destination as well.
