Park City Utah Lodging

The lodgings available at Park City are some of the most in-demand Park City accommodation that you can stay at. They are always being booked up, a long time in advance, and there are many reasons for this. They are well located, offer great facilities but also provide the guests with freedom. However, this article will tell you why you should book you Park City lodging as early as possible, and the benefits of doing so.

Premium Park City Accommodation

They are in short supply, and demand for this type of Park City accommodation nearly always outweighs supply. The development that is present around the mountain as well will only make the number of visitors per year increase, meaning that the accommodation, and in particular the lodges, will book up even faster. If this isn’t a reason to get in and book your accommodation as soon as possible, then I don’t know what is.

Other Activities

If you book early, you have so much more time to get in and book your other activities, meaning that you can choose what you want to do, when you want to do it. There is nothing worse than going to book something you really want to do or see, to find out then when you are free to do it, the thing is fully booked. By booking you Park City accommodation early, you have the freedom to plan, plan and plan some more to make sure that you get the most out of your stay in a lodge, and make certain that you experience all the activities that you want to try. For example, you may want to enlist in a ski school, yet if you leave it till the last minute this ski school may be fully booked.


Booking your transport is another big reason to book early, to make moving around the area or reaching your accommodation even easier. This is similar to the point above, in that by booking your Park City accommodation as early as possible you can organise your itinerary to suit you, not fit it around what transport is left when you come to book it. It isn’t only the accommodation that books up early in the peak season, so make sure you get you accommodation sorted but also look at the activities you want to try and the transport that will be getting you around.

Property Management Company

If you book early enough, or start planning your holiday early enough, you have the chance to consult some property management companies. These companies can organise your trip for you, meaning that as long as you get in early and consult them far in advance, they can get you any Park City accommodation you wish, as well as sorting out the rest of your itinerary.

If you are heading to Park City soon, then get that accommodation booked as early as possible, especially if you want to stay in lodgings or perhaps in Park City condo rentals. There is nothing stopping you staying in some of the great Park City accommodation, as long as you book early!

Best Summer Skiing Holidays In The Alps
Summer Skiing Holidays

Summer skiing can be a great solution for snow lovers who don’t like to spend their summer vacation on beach resorts swarming with the tourists. Most of us wish to escape from summer heat, crowd and noise typical for all the seaside resorts in this time of year. Spending your summer holiday on the slopes instead of the crowded beach resorts may be one of your best decisions when it comes to the summer vacation!

Summer skiing in Europe

Summer skiing is quite an adventure, especially for the first time. However, it is not available in all the ski resorts you typically visit during your winter vacation. There are few ski resorts in Europe with high altitude glaciers in the ski zone. The glacier enables the ground temperatures to stay sufficiently low to be able to prevent the snow break. Nevertheless, the sunshine naturally influences the snow conditions, and for this reason ski lifts start from 7 am in summer and they operate up until 12:30-14:00 pm.

The snow conditions are the best early in the morning, and this is a perfect morning kick-starter for early risers. It is recommended to make a good use of the morning and after the ski lifts stop operating, the visitors can try hiking, mountain biking or para-gliding. There are no many excellent destinations suitable for this type of activity in Europe, but if you consider using your summer vacation in this way, here are the destinations you should be familiar with.


An absolute champion when it comes to snow and skiing. At an incredible altitude of 3820m, Zermatt has the highest and the largest summer skiing zone in Europe. Eight ski lifts and twenty-five kilometers of pistes are available to skiers during the whole summer season. However, during the summer, skiing zone takes up only 10% of (usually) skiable area, but the experience is indeed phenomenal. Richard Wately used to say “Lose an hour in the morning, and you will be all day hunting for it.” And this is a very true statement, because if you oversleep the morning, you will miss the great snow conditions and excellent skiing – and you don’t want to do that.

Les Deux Alpes

Summer Skiing Holidays
