Skiers and snowboarders would agree that winter is easily the best time of the year to visit Waldorf Astoria Park City — the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel sits on the slopes of Canyons Resort, the largest ski resort in Utah and one of the biggest in the United States. You’ll enjoy access to more than 4,000 acres of skiable terrain, most of which can be reached from the Frostwood Gondola just outside the hotel’s doors. Skiing and snowboarding amenities include equipment rental through the hotel's onsite Canyon Mountain Sports, a ski prep room with a fireplace, boot driers, ski valet service and complimentary hot cocoa and cider. Winter is also the best time to visit the hotel if you’re interested in rubbing shoulders with celebrities at the Sundance Film Festival, held every January in Park City.
If you’re not much of a snow bunny, take advantage of lower prices (and smaller crowds) by visiting the luxury Park City hotel in the summer and early fall. The city’s lively shopping, dining and nightlife scene remains mostly the same, and there are still dozens of recreational activities available in the area.
