Since we at the Utah ski desk at UtahState.com are ski Utah experts, here is a little background on the Park City Quick Start. Park City Quick Start's S.T.A.R.T stands for Ski Today And Ride Today. Back when it was available, the program would get you on the mountain at resorts in the Park City area on the day or arrival for free skiing and snowboarding the rest of the day. To maximize the value of this program it was always best for customers to plan to fly in to Salt Lake City as early as possible so time at the ski resort could be maximized. In some cases, it even applied to night skiing!
Ski and snowboard for free in Park City, Utah was a reality at one time. The day of redemption of your boarding pass had to be the same day as your boarding pass to make sure you were flying into Salt Lake City that same day. The ski desk at UtahState.com has a wonderful customer service department and we offer discounts on ski lift tickets as well as great deals to many of Utah's major resorts. This is the ski and snowboarding affiliate of SnelgroveTravel.com with offices in Layton, Utah.
Even though the program is no longer available, here is exactly how the Park City Quick Start
(ski and snowboard free on day of arrival with boarding pass) used to work when it was available.
After registering at www.visitparkcity.com/quickstart, you would receive via email a redemption voucher to redeem.
You would bring the redemption voucher, along with your same day airline boarding pass and
out of state photo id (sorry fellow Utah residents), to the ski resort ticket window and receive a
complimentary same day lift ticket for skiing or snowboarding at a Park City resort. Pretty awesome and simple.
Sadly it's no longer available. However for great deals on Utah ski trips
and lift tickets, call the ski desk at UtahState.com
