Park City Mountain Resort is a good place to ski. If you are just skiing Park City ski areas(DV, Canyons, PCMR) than its worth hitting up for a day or two. The are enough runs for all kinds of abilities but it can get really crowded and I've seen more than a few people out of control and crash into others. It has some really nice areas to ski for the intermediate-advanced skier/boarder, but it needs good enough snow cover. It can be really thin, even into Jan/Feb. And the snow at the bottom can be nasty by days end. Its nice they have night skiing which can be fun. It's also nice that its big enough that you can find your own areas and powder stashes after a storm to keep you smiling. The night life is awesome and there is plenty of apres. My advice is to stay in Park City to enjoy the night lift and ski one of its resorts a couple of days, but make the drive to the Cottonwood Canyons for the majority of your skiing.
