Things to Do With Your Family in Park City, Utah
If you can't leave your kids with the grandparents and don't have the nanny that travels with you, kids are a part of vacations. They can be really fun to have along as long as they don't get ‘bored' Lets be honest, family vacations can be challenging enough without having kids who are ‘bored'. Keeping kids constructively occupied without shelling out big dollars can be difficult in a ski town during the season.
The children's ages dictate family plans on a skiing vacation. Can they enroll in ski school so you can get your turns too or do you need to get daytime babysitter? Are they skilled enough to warrant a private instructor so that skiing with them is an option? Price can really climb with private instruction, but the upside is usually skiing with your kids sooner.
Obviously, with a younger age range, reserving a childcare service for a couple of adult nights makes sense as long as you can find reliable child care. Many hotels have services for babysitting and some do more expanded children's programs. The most trusted child care service in Park City and Deer Valley is Park City Sitters.
Check the local Park City movie theatres, Redstone Cinemas and Holiday Village Cinemas, the indoor and outdoor ice rinks, Gorgoza Park and Soldier Hollow tubing hills, The Egyptian theatre, and the Heber Valley Railroad. White Pine touring grooms three different cross country ski tracks on the Park City golf course, where you can also arrange sleigh rides and dog sled adventures. Contact the tour operators for schedules and availability.

Or, better yet, buy plastic sleds for everyone, find a small, safe hill and enjoy your vacation, together.
