As the 2011-2012 winter season takes its final turn into the homestretch, major resorts like Park City Mountain Resort are looking to make the sprint to the finish as affordable for their guests as possible.

The Wasatch Mountain resort has two stay-and-ski/snowboard packages that run until March 10, and a three-pack of similar deals that run to near or at season’s end. All deals require multi-day stays and include tickets and lodging.

A group that books at least four nights for four people through Park City Mountain Reservations (800-331-3178)  gets a discount price of $79 per person (the fourth night free). Three-day lift tickets for four adults are included for this deal that ends March 10.

Parents who show up for seven nights with two children get lodging for everyone for seven nights and six-day lift tickets for the adults. The cost of lodging varies, according to date of stay, and this deal ends March 10.

For those who are planning to hit Park City Mountain before April 12, a couple of packages are available. First, a three-night booking earns a free fourth night and discounted three-day tickets. Price varies according to date. Second, a family with two adults and two kids who stay at least five nights in slopeside lodging get free tickets for four days for the whole family. The children stay free, and this deal runs through April 15.

Finally, there’s still time to take advantage of the season-long Winter Getaway Package, which offers a fourth night free after three nights paid, complimentary breakfast and two three-day adult lift tickets. This deals runs to the end of the Park City season, on Sunday, April 15.
