This is the best Ski program available in the USA. It is expertly managed, situated only 30 minutes from Salt Lake City airport, at the largest Ski Resort with over 300 runs, 41 high speed chair lifts and more than 100 groomed runs each night. Great snow and sunny days are most common, with much to offer every type of Skier. The program manager ensures that every participant is actively involved and that any unexpected situation is promptly resolved in a positive manner. Group interaction is outstanding in every respect and new friendships quickly develop. Satisfaction is guaranteed. Plus, excellent Senior level Ski instruction provides the ability to improve your personal level of Skiing. Historical Park City offers many diverse activities for the non - Skier, as well as highly acclaimed Restaurants. Just do it, you will like it !

Park City Utah is a terrific place to ski. Sandy and Gary are the best hosts that RoadScholar has to offer. The trip is well organized, and great fun. I look forward to my next ski trip to Park City Utah.

All the superlatives have been applied! Our leaders know how to do it all. From haute cuisine to great evening programs, from finding ski instructors with the perfect combination of humor and technical expertise to enabling us to experience the Tabernacle choir, the experience could not have been more complete. When our instructor, Allen, finally grows up - he is only 83 - he will really be an even more incredible skier. We still can't keep up with him!!! You'll never find a better experience on skis.

The Ski In/ Ski Out program in Park City, Utah is a winner and a value. The hosts, Sandy and Gary, strive to provide a welcoming atmosphere where one can "feel at home" while cultivating new friendships with delightful and interesting people. Truly a winning time with excellent skiing in a beautiful area. I want to return right now!!! Lynn

This was a wonderful ski trip. As a first time Road Scholar participant I was a little nervous about going alone. But I had a great time skiing. Food was super and other participants great. I felt right at home.

If all you want to do is ski and receive instruction along the way, this is the program for you. Your nannies (Gary and Sandy) take care of everything else; great food, steps to the slopes and your ski locker, good programs, all the information you can handle, and a wealth of knowledge about the area, the mountain, and the facilities. Great value! We loved it!

Outstanding program. The food was A+. Garry and Sandy go out of their way to accommodate your needs. The ski-in/ski-out experience is one you can't afford to miss.

Gary and Sandy as superb hosts, create a fun and exhilarating ski experience. From the fantastic food, the after ski-programs, experienced ski instructors, yoga/stretch classes in the morning, to the slope-side lodging, this program is the best! I am a life-long skier; this was my 3rd ski program with them, and have done several in Colorado with Road Scholar. I am looking forward to next year's possible treat from Gary: Perhaps a new program at Deer Valley. Happy Skiing!
