It's a big claim: Catch a morning flight from almost anywhere and be on the slopes in Utah the same afternoon. The Park City Quick START (Ski Today and Ride Today) Vacation lets you convert your airline boarding pass into a same-day lift ticket to the Park City resort of your choice. It's your chance to get a free same-day lift ticket at Deer Valley Resort, The Canyons Resort, or Park City Mountain Resort.

Print and fill out a redemption voucher before you leave home, then bring that form and your same-day boarding pass with out- of- state photo I.D. to the resort ticket window. They hand you a lift ticket. Simple. Make sure you print two copies of your boarding pass in case the airline (i.e., Southwest) retains your boarding pass. Also, if planning to use your mobile phone or PDA as an electronic boarding pass, you still must print a copy of your boarding pass to use with the Quick START voucher.

It helps to be so close to an international airport. Park City devised the program to emphasize how easy it is to hit the slopes. The town is just 35 short minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport.

Quick START offer is valid from opening day to Dec. 24, 2009; Jan. 3, 2010 - Feb. 12, 2010, and March 28, 2010 to the respective resort closing day.  The offer is good for those traveling on commercial flights only. Only one lift ticket per person, per boarding pass andredemption voucher. The offer is good for adults, kids, and seniors. FYI, no snowboarders at Deer Valley Resort.
