Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get there?
The condo is located in the Waldorf Park City at 2100 Frostwood Blvd, Park City, Utah. It is just a 35 minute drive from the Salt Lake City International Airport on a major, well maintained highway.
There are many shuttle services from SLC airport to The Canyons & hotel and many rental car agencies you can choose from. Uber is also available. The hotel offers valet parking as well as a shuttle to take you to local Park City destinations that is included with the required $35/day resort fee. With the hotel shuttle and local Park City bus service, a rental car is not absolutely needed, but we usually get one to have added flexibility and we’ll usually go to Kimball Junction (a couple miles from the condo) for grocery runs.

Is there a variety of skiing available at The Canyons?
The Canyons and Park City Mountain Resort is now connected by an 8 person gondola to form the largest ski resort in the United States with over 7300 skiable acres. There is an unmatched variety of trails for all skiing levels and a large terrain park at both Canyons and Park City Mountain Resort for added excitement. Whether you are a beginner looking for easy runs or an expert looking for extreme slopes and steep unmarked terrain, you will find miles of trails and back country skiing perfect for you and your family! In addition, Deer Valley is just minutes away with easy shuttle access. Keep in mind that Deer Valley does not allow snowboarding! Your day can begin just steps outside the door of our beautiful condo, you can ski over to Park City Main Street for lunch, then, back to the hotel for an Apres Ski beverage and relax in one of the resort’s hot tubs as you gaze back at the mountains. And, remember, Utah has the greatest snow on earth!
How close is the condo to the ski mountain?
The Frostwood gondola is literally steps from the front entrance of the hotel. There is also a trail to ski down to the hotel during the winter months for ski-in convenience. Keep an eye on conditions before using the ski-in trail — it may be easier to ride the gondola down, especially if you have small children. See the Park City Canyons Village on this trail map for other details.
Is there a spa in the hotel?
There is a 16,000 square foot luxury spa within the hotel that offers a wide range of services that our guests can purchase directly from the spa for an additional fee. The Hotel Spa provides the ultimate spa experience with a variety of treatments, such as: Massage Therapy, Facial Therapy, Spa Indulgence Packages, Body Therapy, Well Being, and a full salon. You’ll be glad you pampered yourself!
What is there to do and see in the summer?
There are countless ways to enjoy the mountain terrain in the warmer months! There are over 300 miles of hiking and biking trails to suit every level on a wide variety of terrain. Hiking and mountain biking at The Canyons alone is fantastic and can consume an entire week’s vacation. The Park City area was recently named the world’s first Gold Level Ride Center – See our Blog for more information.
Golfers will enjoy playing on our near-by championship golf courses. In fact, there are over a dozen courses in the surrounding Park City area. In 2015, a new Genes Bates designed golf course opened at the Canyons surrounding the hotel property and winding up the mountain, providing spectacular views and an unforgettable golf experience.
If you prefer water activities, there is fly-fishing, kayaking and white water rafting on the Provo and Weber Rivers, river rafting through beautiful red rock canyons and boating and lake activities at nearby Jordenelle Reservoir and Deer Creek Reservoir. The views are amazing!
If you would like more adventure, The Canyons has two ziplines, one which travels over 2000 feet for incredible excitement. You can head to Park City Mountain and try the Alpine Slide or Ziprider that soars 100 feet in the air and travels up to 45 miles an hour. Nearby Olympic Park also has ziplines, alpine slides, the thrilling bobsled, and the 90 meter training is spectacular to see in the summer! In addition, weekly performances by the Olympic aerial team is a must-see event. There are also balloon rides, train rides on the Heber Valley Railroad, ATV rentals, glider plane rides, and horseback riding.
On main street in Park City each Sunday is the silly market. There are free concerts at The Canyons each week and a summer concert series at Deer Valley. The Farmer’s market at The Canyons each Wednesday is a great place to socialize and pick up fresh produce. The 4th of July parade, concerts and fireworks are very fun events each year. Sundance is just a short, scenic, drive away and offers a cozy mountain culture, comfortable dining and incredible views!
Of course, there is the luxury pool and hot tubs at the hotel to relax and enjoy. Our unit faces the pool and mountains for family convenience to watch the kids as they enjoy the pool. And, you can pamper yourself after adventure seeking is over by visiting the luxury spa within the hotel.
