Salt Lake City is located a mere 45 minutes from the resorts of Deer Valley and Park City. Close by, Sundance, a town recognized around the world for its famous Sundance Film Festival, and for skiing. Acquisition of the Canyons sector by Vail Resorts resulted in the creation of Park City Resort—the largest ski area in the U.S., with a jaw-droping 334 runs. The majority of these are ideal for families and easily accessible to both beginner and intermediate skiers. Experts are also well-served by the Jupiter sector which provides a good, stiff challenge.
Neighbouring Deer Valley Resort is equally as swanky. It’s the optimal choice for those seeking luxury and tranquility (a limited number of lift tickets are sold each day) while also catering to the entire family.
If you’ve still got energy to spare after a day on the slopes, why not enjoy a little après-ski fun? The nightlife is must in Park City. Whether you choose an authentic Western bar, a quiet table for two in a wine bar or a club, this vibrant city is the place to be.
My passion for skiing and travel is not new… it’s 30 years old to be precise. First of all, as a patrolman, I then reached level 3 of the alliance of ski instructors in Canada and then became a specialist columnist with TVA, Météo Média, several radio stations, publications and specialized websites. As a group leader I had the chance to visit beautiful mountains on three continents which allowed me to meet fantastic people who, like you and me, love skiing, share their passion and discover (and sometimes rediscover) the wonderful destinations offered by Voyages Gendron. What turns me on the most and motivates me year after year is to see this little light in the eyes of people when together we find ourselves facing a grandiose mountain landscape or after a descent where we have surpassed ourselves. If you, like me, want to make the most of your ski trips, join me, I will do everything in my power to make your trip memorable.
