PCSkiGal: Where Should My Family Stay?

Utah kidsDear Jill,

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.
