Warm weather is back in Park City after 15 inches of snow from our most recent storm and the Spring skiing is better than ever. Our Licensed Assistant gets up really early each morning for running and workout classes and shared this photo with us on her way home from the Beau Collective yesterday.

On a side note, our fair town is back in the news as Park City, Utah was named #3 on Conde Nast's list of 15 best small cities in the U.S.

Spring is Here

Spring is here in Park City and in the last few days we have seen 60 degrees and sunny and under 30 degrees with blustering snow. The latest storm brought close to nine inches of snow to the mountain resorts and more reason to hit the slopes before both Deer Valley  and Park City Mountain Resort close their skiing on April 10th.

Organic Spa Magazine reminded us that as the skiing wraps up the spa treatments in Park City get better with services at Montage Deer Valley and such treatments as the Apre``s Ski Soak & Muscle therapy and the Ski Boot relief to revive achy legs and feet. If you head towards Canyons Village Park City Mountain Resort you will find Serenity Spa at Westgate with 30,000 square feet of relaxation, complete with 14 treatment rooms, a tranquil spa with waterfall and magnificent amenities. Serenity Spa captured the prestigious Best of State Award in 2013, 2014 and 2015 for "Best Destination Spa."

On your way to the spa after a day of skiing you may pass a four legged furry friend on the mountain. Most visitors to Park City comment during their stay that there are great dog parks and amazing amenities for our four legged friends. Interesting stat - there are more dog licenses in this fair town than full time residents - and on that note we wanted to share a little bit about a dog named Rogue. Ski Utah recently posted  Utah's Cutest Resort Professionals and featured Rogue who was awarded Puppy Weekly’s cutest dog of the month December, 2016 and the cutest dog in all the United States, making her the perfect ambassador for Park City Mountain Resort.

Aside from cute puppies, spa treatments and skiing - here are a few activities in Park City for the rest of this week:

March 23-27 Spring Gruv at Park City Mountain Resort

March 23-24 Kimball Art Center - Illuminations of Africa's Wildlife
