Early to rise, early to shred. That’s the mantra with the Park City QuickSTART deal. 

Fly into Salt Lake City Airport on any commercial airline this winter, and receive a 100-percent free lift ticket at Deer Valley, Park City Mountain or Canyons Resort valid on the same day of your arrival.

The Park City Visitors Bureau’s QuickSTART program offers non-Utah residents a chance to warm up their ski or board legs at altitude before hitting it hard on their first full day. 

To maximize your free lift ticket, hop on an early morning flight and boogie up the freeway to the resorts before checking into your hotel. Because Park City is a short 35-minute drive from the freeway, it’s very possible to be on the lifts less than two hours after touching down. 

Online registration is required before departing. Once in Park City, present the printed voucher, your boarding pass and a non-Utah ID to any resort ticket window and redeem your free lift ticket. The ticket must be used on the same day of arrival.

The QuickSTART offer is blacked out Dec. 23 to Jan. 5 and Feb. 16 to March 31 and is valid until closing date on April 14, 2013 (conditions permitting). To register, click here or call 800-453-1360.
