Where I Stayed
The Chateaux at Silver Lake in Deer Valley, Utah. The day I arrived, over a foot of snow that had fallen all day covered the entire village of Silver Lake.
What's the View?
The scene outside was a winter wonderland - a magical view to this lifetime southern girl. Cold as it was, I was looking forward to skiing in all that pristine fresh powder. And it was cold! Two degrees, which is a bit low for a fair-weather skiier like me.
Tips and Tricks
- Use Park City's Quick START program to snag some free lift tickets. You can take a direct flight out of several U.S. cities (from Los Angeles, it's only an hour), drive about 30 miles to the resort, and be skiing by lunchtime.
- The lodge at Silver Lake Village is famous for its Turkey Chili, which comes in one size: a big, fill-you-up bowl.
