U-Book It!


Salt Lake City, UT, Aug. 29, 2001--Don't let the pandemonium of the Olympics scare you away from Utah's slopes and style. Officials at Ski Utah today announced that Utah ski resorts are reporting plenty of lodging availability during the upcoming Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games, Feb. 8-24, 2002. "We've just polled our 14 mountain resorts, and all of them have lodging availability not only during the Games, but before and after the Games as well," says Ski Utah Communications Director Nathan Rafferty.

"Park City Mountain Reservations is booking condominium lodging all day long and has plenty of inventory left," says Bonnie Crail, marketing director at Park City Mountain Resort. "Potential visitors may call 800-222-PARK to access 90 percent of the condos available in Park City. Park City Mountain Reservations also assists visitors in booking flights, rental cars, lift passes and rental equipment."

"Past Olympic venues have informed us that their ski business has been down during Olympic years because people are afraid of crowds," says Ski Utah President Kip Pitou. "It's actually going to be a fantastic year to ski and ride Utah. All of our mountain resorts are open; slopes will be un-crowded; we have plenty of lodging availability; and with our season-long $20.02 Winter Celebration program, visitors can purchase lift tickets for $20.02 off the daily rate if they book three nights lodging with participating properties. The snow's going to be fantastic as usual. Visitors still have plenty of time to book a Utah ski vacation for the upcoming season."
