The New Apex Residences a Ski in Ski out Development at Canyons Village in Park City Utah

The first phase for the Apex Residences at Canyons Village has been released. Buyers can put in their reservation on a residence starting January 15th 2016. The reservation requires a $25,000 refundable reservation deposit.  The residences will be true ski in ski out properties in the Canyons Village area of Park City Resort.

What's great about this development is the offering of larger sized residences.  I find many buyers struggle to find 4 and 5 bedroom ski in ski out condos and townhomes.  Apex Residences will have 3 bedroom, 4 bedroom and 5 bedroom floor plans.  They range in size from 2087 to 3789 square feet.  The initial pricing for the 1st phase

Although our laws have some quirks, you definitely can walk right into a bar and say, "I'd like a Maker's Mark on the rocks, please" and that's what you'll get. Glass of wine with dinner? No problem. Beer with lunch on the slopes? Sure thing. If you want a particular mixed drink, my suggestion is to just ask your bartender or server what they can do for you.  They know what can and can't be done under the law.  It can get complicated; I'll try to summarize what you need to know and skim over the rest. If you want to know more, don't hestitate to reach out to us in comments, email, or give us a call!

It's finally here!  In addition to access, the gondola provides new spectacular views of the region.  Looking back toward the Park City side, you see the King Con runs in the foreground and the Uinta mountains in the background.

Now if you start at the Park City side, you can easily take a couple runs on the Canyons side, maybe have lunch at the renovated Cloud Dine on the top of the Dreamcatcher and Dreamscape chairs.  Just in case you end up on the "wrong side" at the end of the day, there's a dedicated bus that will take you back to where you started.  That's in addition to the free Park City bus service.

NOTE to beginners: there are no green runs on the Canyons side beyond the terminus of the gondola.  However, on a bluebird day like

As a landlord, I wrote a post a while back based upon how I post properties for rent.  I choose the free services like craigslist since I manage them myself.  Recently however, I saw a For Rent sign in my neighborhood and couldn't find it listed on the free sites, so I did a bit more research . . . 

Some owners hire property management companies that do not always list rentails on the free sites.  These are a couple prominent long-term rental property management companies here in Park City:

Whether a quick day-trip or a weekend getaway, fall is a great time to visit.  The town is pretty quiet, which means you can walk right into your favorite restaurant and get a table, though call ahead to be sure that they're open.  It's also easy to get into houses, condos, and especially ski properties since most of the ones on the market will be vacant.  In between you can go on a hike, ride your bike, or take in a show at the Egyptian Theater.  For the budget minded, lodging rates rates are at their lowest.  So come on out and see us!

Did you watch the premiere of Blood & Oil last night and hadn't realized that North Dakota had such beautiful mountains?  That's because the show is the very first to be filmed at the new Park City Film Studios on Rt.248 (Kearns Blvd.) near US-40, across the road from the hospital and the Quinn's Junction Sports Complex.  The pilot was shot here in March, and in coming weeks you may recognize some of the scenes that were shot on locations on Main Street, including the No Name Saloon.

A new neighborhood called Park City Heights is just starting to spring up on the land behind the film studio and up against the mountains the other side of the northeastern end of Lower Deer Valley.  I just checked with the developer, and they anticipate starting

Spring and fall are great times to visit Park City and look at homes for sale.  These are quiet seasons in town and not only are restaurants and trails less crowded, but you're much more likely to be able to get in to see homes for sale since vacation rentals and second homes are likely to be vacant during these times.

Many restaurants in Park City offer discounts during the off-season, often advertising specials in our local paper, the Park Record. One of these is Burgers & Bourbon.  A year or two ago, the Montage took the bar area of their flagship restaurant Apex and rebranded it as a more casual dining option with its own menu.  Ordinarily, you could easily spend upwards of $80 - $100 per person. However, when we bring your own bottle of wine, pay

It's always exciting to see the white stuff!  In reality, early snows like this are just a tease.  In my experience, the snows that contribute to the snowpack start in late October and early November.  Still, it's always great to see this harbinger of a great ski season ahead.  Get ready!

Thanks to my friend Eileen in Silver Creek for this great picture this morning!  Silver Creek (not to be confused with Silver Lake, Silver Star, Silver Springs, Silver Summit, or Silver Strike) is just north of I-80 across from the end of US-40. It's still close to the action at 10-15 minutes from Canyons Village, but offers larger lots and is popular with people who have horses, want big yards for animals to run around, and has the option for large outbuildings

Are you ready to move to Park City, but aren't ready to buy a home just yet?  We at BestSkiProperty.com don't manage rental properties, but we do get questions all the time asking where to look for long-term rental options.  

Most apartment-style properties in and around Park City are condo complexes in which each unit is individually owned rather than traditional apartment complexes in which one party owns and manages the whole building or development.  Some owners live in their homes full time, and others own them as investments and rent them out.  Some of these individual owners rely on 3rd-party services, but most advertise and manage their properties on their own.

You can find listings from many of these owners on these two free web sites -

We love the free outdoor summer concerts, but they're coming to a close.   This was last Sunday evening in Quarry Village, just off the Jeremy Ranch exit on the Pinebrook side.

Summer traditionally ends with Labor Day festivities, or Miner's Day as we call it here.  Meanwhile, starting at the higher elevations, the leaves have been changing color for almost a month now.  As summer gives way to fall here in Park City, that means snow is on the way.  As a matter of fact, there is a chance of snow in the forecast over 10,000ft on Labor Day weekend! As a token of the transition from summer to winter activities, here is a picture from the yurt at Park City with Deer Valley in the distance.
