Deer Valley — Cross-country

White Pine Touring (435-615-5858) offers 20 km. of track and skate skiing, plus track, skate and telemark lessons at the Park City golf course and an adjacent dairy farm.

For those who want to get off the flats, half-day snowshoe (Wednesday and Sunday) and ski (Tuesday and Friday) tours in the Uinta Mountains are available. If you venture out on your own, this is a good stop for advice and maps of the local mountain bike trails that are perfect for snowshoeing (many are accessible from downtown Park City).

The Homestead Resort (654-1102; 800-327-7220; above left), 14 miles southeast of Park City in Midway, has 12 km. of skiing at Homestead Golf Course and 18 km. at Wasatch Mountain State Park. Snowshoeing and snowmobiling also are available. Nearby Soldier Hollow, site of the 2002 Olympic cross-country competitions, offers 26 km. of both track and skate skiing for all levels.
