ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
With your Ski Club Rep, you will spend 3 days exploring Alta and Snowbird, before heading over to Park City for 5 days skiing Park City and Deer Valley. You will then get to visit the new Freshtracks resort of Powder Mountain. Finally, you’ll spend two days skiing at Powder Mountain and your lift pass for these two days is included within the price of the holiday.
This holiday is aimed at Intermediate (Silver) to Advanced (Purple) off piste skiers. Due to the difference between on piste terrain between North America and Europe, most of our North America holidays have been given an off piste profile. However, you will remain ‘in-bounds’ for the duration of the trip. If you are unsure of your ski level, please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the week, you will receive an updated grading from your Instructor or Ski Club Rep.
In Alta, you will stay at the Alta Peruvian Lodge for four nights on a half board basis. During your time in Park City, you will be staying at Park City Peaks for five nights (B&B). Your final three nights will be spent at the Courtyard by Marriott (B&B) in the town of Ogden.
You will be provided with individual transfers from Salt Lake City Airport to the Alta Peruvian Lodge, and between resorts you will be travelling by private transfer buses. For more information please contact the Freshtracks Team on 020 8410 2022.
Though not well-known resorts, Alta and the linked Snowbird are rightly considered the powder capitals of Utah. These resorts offer 300 marked runs between them, making up only a part of the skiable area. There’s a huge range of steep, challenging and varied terrain with everything in sight being a potential line.
Park City is a historic mining town (make sure you check out the bustling Main Street) which in 2015 linked with its neighbour Canyons to become the biggest ski area in the USA. You’ll have the opportunity to ski a real mixture of intermediate to expert terrain. Nearby Deer Valley will allow you to explore uncrowded pistes – due to its limit on the number of people on the mountain each day.
Powder Mountain is a bit of a hidden gem in Utah and it is a firm favourite amongst the locals. You’ll be staying in the nearby town of Ogden and transportation to and from the resort is included within the trip, as well as a 2 day Powder Mountain lift pass.
