Kings of the Hill

The ultimate mancation goes (up, then) down in Park City

Full_full_parkcitymancation

Your upcoming vacation plans are going downhill fast.

And that's a good thing.

Plan a ski getaway in post-Sundance Park City, Utah, home to roving tastings, multiple Olympic winter sports venues, high-caliber restaurants, and laid-back nightlife.

STAY
The Sky Lodge is a swank oasis just steps from the bustling historic Main Street, as well as Town Lift, which takes you directly up the mountain to Park City Mountain Resort. And this winter, they're offering a Mancation Getaway that features lodging in a two-bedroom suite, a ski and hangover cure massage and spa treatment.
$380 per person per night (discounted for additional nights)201 Heber Ave. (888-876-2525)
 
EAT
Protein load after a long day on the slopes at Silver Restaurant. Start with venison spare ribs, then work your way through braised pork shank or a killer Silver Burger topped with foie gras, a fried egg, and bacon jam. $12 craft cocktails are expertly prepared and mighty potent.
508 Main St. (435-940-1000)

DRINK
Go where the locals hang at O'Shucks, next door to the rowdy-but-touristy No Name Saloon. Wherever you drink in town, don't forget that you're drinking at altitude.

PLAY
Canyons Resort just introduced a high-tech twist to downhill skiing with EpicMix, a new social network that lets you automatically capture all of your mountain activity and share it with your friends. In addition, roving photogs on the slopes shoot pics of you for free and they automatically post to your EpicMix account. Just don't let them catch you bailing face-first into the powder.
