All eyes are on Park City this winter, as it becomes the largest ski area in the U.S. thanks to Vail Resorts linking Canyons and Park City Mountain Resort with a new gondola. In anticipation of the debut, the Waldorf Astoria Park City has introduced several new "experiences" for skiers. Among them is the Wasatch Extreme Experience: a private heli ski tour with PC Powder Cats in the backcountry of the pristine Wasatch Mountains. This being the Waldorf Astoria, the day of heli skiing is only a fraction of the totally luxurious package.
Your adventure begins with a personal airport pick up at Salt Lake City International Airport via Range Rover, which will be at your call throughout the two-day experience. Next, a personal stylist will assist in selecting your backcountry gear at Park City's Cole Sport. The day ends at High West Distillery (one of our favorite dining options in Park City) with a private tour and dinner.
Day No. 2 is all about scoring private, helicopter-accessed powder runs in the Wasatch through PC Powder Cats' diverse mountain terrain that features everything from huge open bowls and powder fields to lower-angle Aspen tree runs. The experience wraps up with the Mountain Salvage sports massage in the Waldorf Astoria Spa. Pricing for the Wasatch Extreme vacation package starts at $9,500 for two guests. And that, Curbed Ski readers, is how you maximize your short 48-hour weekend.
