Ideas for Families
This year, the kids will learn valuable skills (snowshoeing, sailing, how to hula). The parents, meanwhile, get to veg.
Deer Valley—Park City
Drop the kids off at Park City Mountain Resort, where your snowboarding teens can perfect their switch rodeo maneuver at Jonesy’s while neophytes learn how to board in small classes. Meanwhile, you can schuss off to nearby Deer Valley, one of only four U.S. ski areas where snowboarders are verboten. Or bring up the whole family for a snowmobiling adventure on Deer Valley’s 7,000 acres of open, hilly backcountry. Stay at the new 33-unit Skylodge (opens December 26, high-season rates start at $925; 435-658-2500 or theskylodge.com) in the center of historic Park City.
