Hi, I am a single Australian traveller coming to Park City for 3 nights in December (16th-19th) and I am on a very limited budget. I haved looked online and there doesn't seem to be any hostel type accomodation anywhere in Park City, there is only fancy hotels charging hundreds of dollars a night. I am so desperate I don't mind staying in a spare room of some nice persons house. Is there any forums or anything where people rent spare rooms or anything? Or if there is anywhere cheap to stay. I am very thankful for any hlep.
I've seen lots of ads to this affect in the SLC Craig's List (http://saltlakecity.craigslist.org/), usually in the Sublets section. Even those are pricey though.
But the closest hostel, as well as the only reasonable hotels, are in Salt Lake. You have to remember that Park City is famous for Sundance and skiing, and you're going at the prime time for the latter. Maybe you could stay in SLC and rent a car, catch a ride or take a shuttle out to Park City for the day. I know that they have ski shuttles leaving from the city.
try Craig's list or Priceline.com I've had pretty good lock with Priceline
