Walking in ski boots while carrying your skis and poles is challenging. It is best to keep your boots unbuckled until you have arrived at the base of the chairlift.
While a number of properties are within walking distance of historic Main Street or the slopes, Park City is served by the Free Ride Transportation System.
Appropriate dress can make or break your day on the slopes. It is worth investing in a pair of waterproof ski pants as jeans get wet and do not allow movement.
