The Park City Quick Start used to let you ski free on the day of arrival by showing your airline boarding pass. It is our understanding that this ski free on day of arrival program will not be offered for the 2020 / 2021 ski season. However for the latest updates check back here or call the ski desk at UtahState.com 801-544-1800. Park City ski resort is a wonderful ski resort operated by wonderful people even if the Park City Quick Start isn’t offered this ski season. Here’s some trivia for you. The START in Park City Quick Start stands for “ski today ride today”. Clever huh.
When offered, the Park City Quick Start was a unique program. It was meant to show that unlike Colorado, if you ski Utah you could fly into the Salt Lake City airport in the morning and be skiing at Park City by mid day. For real! To promote this the Park City Chamber of Commerce and the three Park City Resorts, Deer Valley, Canyons and Park City teamed up to create the Park City Quick Start program. This was introduced originally in 2006 and by promoting ski free on day of arrival, it showed how convenient the Park City ski resorts were to the Salt Lake International airport. Once you grab your skis or snowboard at the Salt Lake Airport, you exit the airport and hop on interstate 80 and turn east. A quick 30 minutes later while still on interstate 80 as you pass through the Salt Lake Valley, take the Park City exit off and you have arrived. Then just pick your resort, show your out of state drivers licence (bummer for locals) and your boarding pass and then ski free for the rest of the day. The Park City Quick start was a great marketing idea and we hope the marketing folks bring it back. Especially as the ski industry recovers from the effects of COVID-19.
