24 Hour Staycation

After a long winter in the (SLC) valley, it was time to live the dream that I sell, if only for 24 hours. I have often boasted the convenience of Silver Star at Park City to clients and locals, and was glad my stay lived up to the hype.

The Silver Star is a newer property to the Park City area. It offers cottages, townhouses and condominium style lodging options, in a resort style setting. The layout is amenity rich and rustic, yet completely luxurious.

I stayed in one of the 3 bedroom condos, treating my father to a celebration of his 60th birthday in true style. The accommodation was beautifully appointed, yet comfortable and charming. If I had to pick a favorite between the gourmet kitchen and the sprawling master bathroom—I just couldn’t… But my absolute favorite part?? The slope side lift access.

I am a big fan of avoiding base area “crush zones” in favor of auxiliary lifts (like Iron Horse at Big Sky). Not only do you have limited lift lines but you start your day ahead of the crowds! Silver Star to the King Con lift at Park City is a pretty fantastic way to start a powder day (having your own ticket window at Silver Star makes it even easier!). And cold beer on tap and live music at the Silver Star Cafe waiting for you at the end of the day is a perfect finish.

A big THANKS to everyone who helped us celebrate this very special “staycation,” and especially to my Dad, who is often the encouragement behind any mountain madness… until our next turns, old man!!!

I am passionate about The Rocky Mountains. I have been blessed to live in such great states as Colorado, Montana, Utah, and even Alaska. If you want to talk about mountain life—fresh air, hiking, climbing, camping or powder—I am your girl! If you really want to get me going, let’s chat about Montana. I worked, played and lived in Big Sky for more than ten years. There isn’t a question I can’t answer or a request I can’t make happen. Just try me!
