I'm also planning a big trip to UT this Winter, but we've been told to not waste our time riding Park City and will be going elsewhere instead.
Haha....way to be a buzzkill. OP seems to be already booked at PC, so let him enjoy his stoke a bit, damn.
If you are staying in Park City, there is a resort down the road called the Canyons. It is a little different than PC, but definitely not the other places like Snowbird, Pow Mountain, or Bright-itude. It has a lot of terrain, and if the snow is good, then check it out.
If you are getting limited snowfall, check-in on places like Snowbird, Solitude, or Brighton. They are about 55 minutes from PC and generally get more snow than PC/Canyons. Think about it this way, when PC is getting 2 inches, Snowbird is getting a foot. I've seen it happen.
As far as drinks in PC, the No Name Saloon and High Whiskey are well-known watering holes. There's also the Spur that has live tunes. Any locals wanna chime-in on a Shooting Star-esque or Cotton Bottom-esque bar in Park City?
