Our Park City Utah Recap

It’s been a couple weeks since we got home from Park City, Utah and today I have a recap for you girls!
Park City has been on our list to visit for forever and lets just say it did not disappoint! It’s such a beautiful place with so much to see and do. If you’re thinking about going I would definitely put it on your list! Today i’m sharing all kinds of randomness /photo overload from our trip…

My Boys!

and can I get hell yes for under 2 hour flight times lol

I have to say that The Montage had one of the best kids clubs ever. Ava begged everyday to go there and that made it so amazing for us because we actually got to go skiing this trip! My husband had never been skiing and I hadn’t been in 15 years so we took a lesson one morning and were cruising the rest of the trip! We’ve snowboarded in the past but have to say I actually found skiing to be a little easier for me.

A quick pit stop to the Veuve Clicquot Yurt 😉 is a MUST!

Fresh Snow!

And of course a little tequila always helps warm you up 😉

Our hotel was only about a ten minute drive to the main strip in Park City so we ventured into town just about everyday. Main street was  so charming with tons of restaurants, shops and bars. (Sharing a few of our favorites below)

I’m obsessed with These Wedge Snow Boots and they just went on SALE HERE! I had my eye on them last year and finally splurged on them this year. They were comfy, cute and great for the snow too.

and here are a few of my other favorite snow boots now on MAJOR markdown…

If you followed on SnapChat you girls saw we got to sneak in a couple date nights after we put the kids to bed. The main strip is super charming and has tons of great restaurants. Thank you girls who shared so many of your favorite spots with me on Instagram.



Restaurants to check out 



River Horse (definitely make a reservation in advance)

High West Distillery

 No Name Salon is a super cute dive bar vibe right on Main St. great for drinks

We also heard Shabu Shabu and The Farm are supposed to be great

(feel free to comment with you favorites if you’ve been too!)



Gorgonza Park is great for tubing with the kids

and also heard Riding up the Gondola at the St. Regis for 360 Views is amazing

We had drinks at the cutest dive bar on the main strip called The No Name Saloon. They actually made the best spicy mule and the main bar area is over flowing with Christmas lights!

Pretty much every evening we would meet up with our friends and family we traveled with and hang in the main lobby. They had board games, pool tables and live entertainment every evening.

(My Off The Shoulder Top is a Winter Staple and they just made it in a pretty blush color HERE)

 His Boots // My Snow Boots

I was SO happy this kid LOVED the snow! He could seriously spend hours just walking around outside the hotel just exploring and playing in it. Ava on the hand….not so much 😉 If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen the video I shared of her at ski school lol. A few moms told us that if you stick with it eventually the kids start to like it. So far we are 0-2 lol So we’ll see if we hang in there and try it again next time. Any tips are welcomed!

If you’re looking for Winter boots for you little ones we’re obsessed with THESE BOOTS. I wanted boots that weren’t super chunky and easy to slip on and off. This Pair was PERFECT! They kept his feet warm and dry and weren’t too expensive. Also last year when we were in Jackson Hole and Luca wasn’t walking a ton, he wore THESE BOOTIES (now on sale) that were awesome for that in-between walking/crawling stage.

That face!!

This place was seriously pure MAGIC!

We had the best time there and will definitely be going back! If you girls have any other (kid friendly) ski destination recommendations  (or have any tips for getting your kids to like ski school ;)) Please share!

    We are going to Deer Valley next month so I will have to check out these recommendations. They look amazing! Quick question – did the altitude bother you at all? We are also in California so just wondering what to expect. Thanks!

      You know it didnt bother me too much…sometimes I felt like I would get winded super easily. My mother in law has high blood pressure so it was a little bit hard on her but for the most part very doable.

    Great pictures! I missed going skiing this year! Do the Wedge Snow Boots run true to size – I’m afraid if I wear winter sock it might be to snug. Thank you.

    So glad you liked Park City! I’ve lived in Utah all my life, sometimes I forget how charming and beautiful all this snow can be! Your Santana cardigan is beautiful, what size did you go with?

    Was there some kind of child care that the hotel provided where you could leave the kids?

      Yes I mentioned it in my post but the resort we stayed at had an amazing kids club! They also offered a kid night session too but our in laws were with us this trip. So we went out a couple nights after we put them to bed.

    My mom first took me skiing at 2…had to get me a private instructor because I was too young for ski school. I loved it and so we went back every year. I don’t remember a time before skiing! My sister is 10 years younger than me & we started her young too – she never much cared for skiing or ski school. She much preferred the hot tub for apres ski time! We are headed to steamboat with our kids in two weeks, crossing my fingers that they both love it!

    Park City is definitely on my list to visit! Not sure if I’d be able to afford staying at the Montage, but nonetheless, what a beautiful place!

    Shabu Shabu is my absolute fave but also really love Mariposa (a little fancy so probably no kids) and Chimayo…the kids always like Fireside right by Montage. Looks like y’all had a great trip!!
