From boarder dudes to parents with tots, everyone skis Park City Mountain Resort, host of the Olympic snowboarding and giant slalom events. The awesome terrain couldn't be more family-friendly – or more accessible, rising as it does right over downtown.

The lowdown: 3100ft vertical drop, base elevation 6900ft; 3300 acres, 17% beginner, 52% intermediate, 31% advanced; seven high-speed lifts, eight fixed-grip chairs, one magic carpet. Park City's skiable area covers nine peaks, ranging from groomers and wide-open bowls (750 acres of them!) to cotton-mouth-inducing super steeps and the nation's only superpipe. Experts: make a beeline to Mount Jupiter ; the best open trees are in the Black Forest . For untracked powder, take the Eagle lift up to Vista . Test your aerial technique on an Olympic-worthy boarding and freestyle course at three amazing terrain parks.

Kids' trails are marked with snowbug statues near the magic-carpet lift and the resort will hook teens up with area locals who provide the lay of the land. Check out the online activity planner at www.mymountainplanner.com. To avoid crowds, stay out late: night skiing lasts until 9pm. In winter there's open-air ice skating at the Resort Center.

Though the resort has no affiliated hotels, it does offer package lodging/skiing deals with nearby properties, and restaurants and après-ski are on site. The fact that Town Lift takes you right from Main St up to the village area makes all downtown accommodations accessible.
