The ultimate girls’ getaway.
Call it what you want—no matter what, it’ll be a great few days away if it involves your best girlfriends.
And I can’t think of a better way to spend such a weekend than hitting the slopes and wining and dining our way around a gorgeous ski town.
Check out my local picks and tips for planning a stellar girls-only escape to Park City.
You’re likely going to be getting in some turns (this is a ski trip, after all) but consider mixing it up a little by joining a guided snowshoe excursion or hitting up a women’s only clinic on your skis or snowboard.
You’ll watch the sunrise and ski/ride pristine groomers before anyone else hits the mountain, then warm up with breakfast at the mid-mountain lodge; it’s a truly memorable experience.
Market at Park City is my favorite store to stock up on local bread, artisan cheeses, and a
fresh produce selection.
Any great girls’ weekend involves wine and cheese; it’s a fact.
Make a cheese tray for après grazing while you’re sipping on wine and enjoying the hot tub.
(You did book a room with a hot tub, didn’t you?) The Market at Park City is my favorite store to stock up on local bread, artisan cheeses, and a fresh produce selection.
Look for locally made Pop Art Popcorn, Yee-Haw Pickles, and Pepperlane Jelly to accompany your cheese tray.
Bonus points for The Market’s convenient location next to the Utah State liquor store.
What would a girls’ getaway be without a little pampering?
Give your muscles a break after a day of skiing and visit my favorite place in town, Align Spa.
It’s a locals’ secret with longtime therapists and reasonable prices.
Or, try Mountain Body and book a treatment that features locally made salt scrubs.
Take a few minutes to browse the storefront for the retail versions of Mountain Body’s signature salt scrubs, homemade soaps, and lotions.
No one is going to blame you if you stay in the hotel, watch movies all night, and order room service.
But if you’re up for a little after-dark entertainment, then Park City has some options for you.
My favorite ladies’ night picks combine good food, great drinks, and a lively atmosphere: High West for a craft whiskey and lemonade (or two); The Happy Sumo if you’re craving sushi; and the current hot spot is the newly opened Boneyard Saloon and Kitchen.
If you find the time to squeeze in some retail therapy, Park City is full of quaint, locally owned boutiques.
Hit up Old Historic Main Street and plan on spending an afternoon strolling up and down, browsing the many shops.
My go-tos: Flight Clothing Boutique and Olive and Tweed for super cute clothes, The Expanding Heart for unique books and gifts, and La Niche for kitchen and housewares.
Honestly, you could skip it all and simply indulge in a powderfest at Park City Resort for a getaway beyond compare.
But why not take advantage of Park City’s vibrant character and hippest hotspots to really make your memories pop?
So go ahead and get your girls together; you’ve got a trip to plan.
