MLK Weekend in Park City Now Focuses on Skiing

Park City, UT – Park City is inviting visitors to spend the Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) holiday weekend, Jan. 16-18, skiing instead of fighting the typical Sundance crowds.

Traditionally, these dates were sold out due to the scheduling of the annual Sundance Film Festival and its nearly 50,000 attendees who take over Park City’s hotels, restaurants and streets each January. Now that the film festival has been rescheduled to later in the month, Jan. 21-31, the popular MLK holiday weekend is once again open for uncrowded skiing and riding in Park City, just 35 minutes from the Salt Lake International Airport.
