Accolades For Family Ski Services at Park City Area Resorts

This new article on cnn.com says great things to say about family ski services at Park City Mountain Resort, The Canyons and Deer Valley Resort. Here are excerpts:

The Canyons Resort, one of the largest ski resorts in the country, heard families lament the cost of ski vacations, so they now offer two free lift tickets and breakfasts with many room packages -- a value of more than $200 a night.When families told Park City Mountain Resort they didn't like leaving their little skiers and snowboarders in big ski school classes (how could the instructors teach the kids anything if they were constantly counting heads?), the Utah resort initiated a Signature Five Program, which guarantees no more than five kids in a class (the 3-1/2-year-old to 5 crowd has one instructor for every three kids).

Let's not forget Park City's other resort, Deer Valley... Multi-generational families -- and there are a lot of them here -- like that there's an "easy" way down from the top of every lift so families can conquer the mountain at their own pace and still spend time together.

But perhaps the biggest plus to choosing Park City: There's as much to do off the slopes as on -- for every age group -- and I'm not just talking about restaurants, though there are 100 of those, including Zoom, owned by Robert Redford, Deer Valley's stellar Seafood Buffet and family favorite The Grub Steak with plenty of kid-sized portions of steak and ribs. And don't forget the shopping -- Park City has more than 300 stores.
