If you want to experience some of the best skiing in Utah, you should know about the Ski Utah Interconnect Tour. Led by Old Town Inn’s own Deb Llovci and Pat Reddish, this 25 mile tour includes hitting four or six (depending on where you start) of Utah’s resorts in one day, skiing backcountry terrain that most locals never see. The experience is one-of-a-kind and truly a must for anyone who loves a challenging ski adventure! And it’s a tour you might want to go on several times as it’s always a new and awesome experience! Skinet.com’s article featuring the Interconnect Tour says “Think of it as the ultimate winter weekend: fly in, ski four of the West’s marquee resorts and two of its soulful family spots, fly out with a shiny pin labeling you an official Interconnect conqueror.”

It’s been snowing here at Old Town Guest House. Woohoo! And so we thought we’d tell you about a handful of the other great Park City activities to do in the fluffy white stuff that you might not hear so much about!
Gorgoza Park offers the most fun you’ve ever had tubing with seven lighted, lift-served tubing lanes for an adventure for all ages!
Sleigh Rides are truly the most romantic way to enjoy a tour around the mountains. Enjoy the cozy, traditional horse-drawn sleigh ride while taking in the beautiful views!
The Alpine Coaster will give you a thrill as you whiz down the white slopes on toboggan cars, through the gorgeous Wasatch scenery and up and down thousands of feet of exciting curves!
And don’t forget to take a ring or two around the ice-skating rink at the Park City Resort Center. Bring the kids for an afternoon of family fun or go after dark for a romantic evening on the ice.
On Thursday, Dec. 4, an exciting new free concert series kicks off. The Park City Free Winter Concerts are presented by The Canyons and will be on Thursday evenings at local club Harry O’s through the winter months. Doors open at 7:30, concert runs from 8 to 10 p.m. The first concert will be featuring Tim Wray and Fat Paw. You can be sure that this event will continue to host amazing artists and bands, as Park City attracts the best in entertainment along with dining, comfort and, of course, outdoor activities!
Speaking of outdoor fun, the 17th annual Celebrity Skifest at Deer Valley is this weekend! If you haven’t heard about this huge event, it’s a weekend of training, skiing, eating, dancing and entertainment with Celebrities from TV, Music and Film as well as Olympians. All the funds raised are given to the environmentalist organization the Waterkeeper Alliance and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team. It’s a lot of exciting fun that is benefiting athletes and helping keep our planet clean and our water safe! You can check out pictures from last year’s event at: http://www.dvskifest.com/main.html.
Whenever you come visit us at Old Town Guest House, there’s lots to do and see, so come enjoy yourself! Have some great food (any ethnicity your little mouth desires), see a band you love, smell the pine-scented mountain air and see the sun shining off the snowy peaks while you glide down the mountain!
