Just minutes away from Park City in Midway is the Homestead Resort, home to the Homestead Crater. It has 1,200 acres of skiable terrain in the greatest snow on earth! Don’t forget to make a reservation!http://homesteadresort.com/utah-resort-things-to-do/homestead-crater/PARK CITY MOUNTAIN RESORTPark City is the quintessential ski town with two resorts, including the largest resort in the U.S., and it’s home to the annual Sundance Film Festival. Their apres ski lounge is the Veuve Clicquot Yurt, so there’s plenty of champagne to go around along with caviar, cheese and charcuterie, and gourmet popcorn! The kids can stop in for mani/pedis, but Tina Malave went all in for a detoxifying mud wrap.http://www.waldorfastoriaparkcity.com/spa/VEUVE CLICQUOT YURTStop by the Montage Deer Valley for a real treat! It’s like watching the movie “Frozen” come to life! Our Tina Malave took a dip in it to take advantage of the 95 degree mineral water, but others come to take paddleboard yoga classes and even get their scuba certification.
