Stein Eriksen Lodge
7700 Stein Way, Deer Valley
This ski-in-ski-out lodge is named for the famous Norwegian skier, who made his home in Park City for most of his life and served as a host here for many years. One of the most luxurious places to stay in town, it's known for excellent service—ski valets will whisk away your skis and serve hot apple cider at the end of a ski day, and there's a concierge on-hand to light the fireplace in your bedroom. We love the multi-room suites here for longer stays with a family, as they're outfitted with small kitchens for easy dinners and washer/dryers that come in handy for drying out frozen ski socks or long johns. Even if you're staying elsewhere, it's worth checking out the spa, which has a heated outdoor pool with stunning views of the Wasatch range.
Sundance Mountain Resort
8841 N. Alpine Loop Rd., Sundance
Robert Redford bought the land that Sundance Resort sits on back in the 1960's, when he first started coming to Utah. Investors encouraged him to develop it by adding condominiums and rentals, but Redford insisted on keeping as much of the area pristine as possible, creating a community centered around creativity and conservation. Unsurprisingly, the aesthetic of the lodge here is reminiscent of the resort's namesake catalog, with wood-paneled walls, cozy flannel bedding, and working fireplaces—there are standard rooms available, but for longer trips, check into an apartment-like suite outfitted with a full kitchen. Staying here, you'll be right at the base of the property's namesake mountain, which, at only three chairs, is smaller than nearby Deer Valley, but intimate and unique in a very special way.
St. Regis Deer Valley
2300 Deer Valley Dr. E, Deer Valley
While we couldn’t be bigger fans of the Montage Deer Valley, the St. Regis is a great option too, with tons of bells and whistles—from their signature butler service to a funicular that brings guests from the valet to the main lobby. Kids love the big swimming pool, and the fire pits on the terrace, where you can roast s’mores under the astonishingly starry sky. For parents, their impeccable service makes planning activities and getting around the town incredibly easy.
Silver Mountain Sports Club & Spa
1526 Ute Blvd., Kimball Junction
A membership to Silver Mountain gets you a ticket to pretty much any type of fitness class you could want at a gym: They offer everything from barre and pilates, to boot-camp style workouts, to spinning, aqua aerobics, and three levels of yoga classes. In addition to the next-level class selection, some of which take place in rooms with spectacular views of the mountains, the facility is also home to heated lap pools, indoor and outdoor hot tubs, steam rooms, and a dry sauna. It’s great for kids, as well; in the summer, there’s a lazy river and a water slide. Adults can also make appointments from a menu of facials, massages, body treatments, and hair and nail services. There's a Silver Mountain at Prospector Square, too.
