My family and I will be coming to Park City in a couple of weeks. Any tips on where to stay? I have three kids so need a two- bedroom that we can walk to the slopes from. My kids are 10,9,4 years and are starting out. The older boys have skied but will need lessons and I will take them out in the afternoons. My daughter (4 years) will be on skis for the first time. I need black slopes with moguls ideally. Where should we stay and ski. Perhaps Canyons; my wife would like Deer Valley. I was thinking PCMR. Any thoughts? Thanks. Ajit
