Also, if traveling with ski equipment a local taxi service may be problematic.

Renting a car or SUV at the airport may be the best option, particularly for families or groups, if you’re confident driving in snowy conditions. Having your own car offers added convenience for exploring Park City and especially if planning to ski other ski resorts such as Alta, Deer Valley, Snowbird, Brighton, Solitude or Snowbasin.
