Advisor - New Year’s Eve Family Getaway to Park City, Utah
Fora’s Take

Ringing in the New Year is especially fun and exciting in Park City, an iconic North American mountain town. With its quaint Main Street boutiques, lively nightlife, acclaimed dining and cafés and a thriving art scene you will never be bored. There are plenty of options for New Year’s Eve activities in this winter wonderland — world class skiing and snowboarding, backcountry dog sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides — the perfect backdrop for families and couples! This itinerary is designed for a magical five day family trip to Park City but can be customized based on your preferences.

Day 1: Arrive in Salt Lake City

A day of travel can work up a healthy appetite. A favorite to satiate comfort food cravings is Burgers & Bourbon serving savory American classics like hearty burgers, fresh cut fries, hand spun shakes and craft spirits. 

Wind down the first evening at my recommended resort, Montage Deer Valley Resort, a refined mountain retreat set amidst the wooded valleys and uncluttered slopes above Park City, Utah.

Day 2: Ski lessons and bowling

You must experience some of America’s finest slopes located atop Empire Pass with unrivaled ski in/ski out access from the resort. In the morning, novice skiers can head to the Wide West area near the Snow Park Lodge. This gentle terrain is separated from the more trafficked runs and serviced by two chairlifts and three conveyor lifts. Another option is Outside Compass Sports, an outdoor outfitter offering ski rentals, lift tickets and the latest ski accessories. 

Lunch in Park City

Firewood on Main the majority of the dishes are prepared over an open flame using chef-selected wood-like cedar, cherry and maple to enhance flavors. 

Take it easy

Walk off lunch or go window shopping around Main Street located in Historic Park City Utah before heading back to kick up your heels. It has been a long but fun day! 


Daley’s Pub & Rec has upscale bowling lanes and serves handcrafted brick-oven pizzas theatrically created in the pub’s own display.
