Park City Mountain Resort

I have a confession. Despite the fact that I lived in Colorado for five years and despite the fact that I now live in the great frozen state of Minnesota, I don't do winter sports. I don't ski, I don't skate, I don't even like to go and get my mail if it's too cold outside. So why am I here today telling you about Park City Mountain Resort? I can give you 5 reasons!

1. Park City Mountain has ski lessons for every age group. Everyone age 3.5 and up can get ski lessons there. You can learn in a group (and I'm sure they make everyone stop laughing at you when you fall a dozen times) or have a private lesson (where only one person laughs at you when you fall a dozen times.)

2. They have an Alpine Coaster. According to the website the coaster sends you "down the mountain on nearly 4,000 feet of curves, bends and loops". Awesome.

3. They have tubing. Tubing is one winter sport I can really get into. Especially when they have a lift to take to you the top of the hill. A sport where I can do nothing but sit in a tube and have fun? Yes thank you!

4. The town of Park City is located just 35 miles from the Salt Lake City International Airport and has over 100 bars and restaurants.

5. The town (once home of the winter Olympics) has a fantastic bus system to help you get from place to place.

Still not convinced? Seriously? Even after I told you about the tubing? Ok, then check out The Adventure Blog where you can get all kinds of helpful tips and insight from moms who have visited the Park City Resort before. If you go to the blog now you can enter to win a Family Winter Vacation for four (two adults and two kids, 12 and under) to Park City, Utah, including 3-nights lodging, 4-days of lift tickets and ski/snowboard school for the kids. On second thought, maybe don't go the Adventure Blog. I kind of want to win that vacation myself.

What? I like tubing!
