I'm not one to overhype things, but we have had a ton of snow so far this season. After a big teaser storm in early October with the remains of that still on the upper elevations, we had a series of storms over Thanksgiving weekend and just concluded another storm cycle a couple days ago. Park City Resort has already opened about 1/3 of their terrain, and they've been opening new terrain every day. The snow is cold and skis great, both on groomed runs and off-trail. Deer Valley opens for the season on Saturday and should have similar conditions. 

I got lucky on Monday and got to the top of the Tombstone chair on the Canyons side right when they dropped the rope for the first time this season, and I got to ski 2 feet of virgin powder. Can't say

 October in Park City, what a difference a couple weeks makes! 

I've been meaning to write an update in market conditions for some time, but the answer today is the same as it's been for a few years. Prices continue to steadily rise, inventory is still low. Most values have exceeding their pre-recession highs, but some have not with differing conditions in different developments. Modern finishes continue to command a premium, and there continues to be a considerable amount of new construction. 

 Construction continues in Upper Deer Valley and Empire Pass with Goldener Hirsch Residences coming along and Empire Residences has started committing to purchase contracts. One Empire Pass is now complete and is spectacular with very few units left. At

It’s a great time to visit Park City and Deer Valley resorts from now until they close for the season on April 10, 2016.  Now that we’re past the Daylight Savings Time change, the sun sets after 7:30pm and so you can have to best of both worlds of ski season and shoulder season – ski all day, and still have time to check out properties for sale!

Even if where you live the snow may have melted and flowers have started blooming, there’s still plenty of great skiing here in Park City.  Spring is coming here too, but not so quickly.  As we transition into April, crowds start to die down and it’s easier to find lodging.  And since lodging is easier to find, nightly rental properties are easier to get into to view as well.

When it comes to the quality

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

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!

Spring Skiing in Park City Utah

Spring is a great time to enjoy skiing in Park City Utah.  The ski resorts are open till mid April and the ski resorts in Park City tend to be quiet the beginning of April so its a great time to come out to ski.  April and May is also a great time to start looking at ski condos for sale.  There are fewer buyers in town looking and the sellers are getting less rental income so sellers become more motivated to sell.  It is also easier to look at ski condos that are for sale that are in a rental pool.  During the busy part of the ski season they can be hard to preview and most sellers keep their rental condos in a rental pool while trying to sell their condo.

Canyons Resort's 18th Annual

Pond Skimming Contest

March 22, 2014

Here are highlights from this last weekend's fun event at the Canyons Resort in Park City Utah.  It was a beautiful sunny day to enjoy watching the Canyons Resort's 18th annual pond skimming contest.  It seems like it takes a lot of courage to participate.  I sure enjoyed the humor of it as well as the silly costumes.  What a great way to enjoy a Saturday afternoon in Park City.



This ski season was Vail's first season managing Canyons Resort.  It was so nice being able to buy an Epic Pass for skiing the Canyons Resort which is good for use at Vail's other ski areas.  If you buy early its a great price.  Right now they are offering an Adult's Epic Locals Pass for
