Planning A Utah Ski Vacation

Like Anything Else Online, Just Be Careful Out There...

Many people have lodging websites, and guess what, some have websites but don't have actual lodging, really. There have been reports of people planning a trip, paying the money and traveling to a destination only to find that the lodging property they rented did not exist! They got your money and now you need to find a place to stay. This type of scam is another form of "cyber-crime", but doesn't happen on Internet travel directories such as ours. Why?, they have to be real to be listed on our website. A scammer will not use a service like ours because they don't want to be known by anyone. Besides, when someone asks to be included on our pages, we visit with every lodging owner and personally check out their units!

Too Good To Be True - Rental Scams in Park City - Scams
Ten visitors who were planning a ski trip to Park City were disappointed when they arrived.

They were the victims of fraud involving vacation rentals, the Park City Police Department says. It is rare for there to be such a concentration of cases in Park City, and the Police Department is warning people to be cautious as they book and pay for accommodations.

Mary Ford, a detective in the Police Department, said the schemes have been similar. They have started with a posting on an Online list, one of the popular websites for rental advertisements, Ford said. The advertisements say the places are for rent at low prices and have pictures of properties that look nice, she said. They are "too good to be true," Ford said.

Once someone contacts the person advertising the rental, there is typically some back-and-forth communications between the parties. The person who is advertising the rental eventually requests that money be wired to a bank, she said. The banks are normally outside of Utah. Some have been in Texas, Ford said.

"They're usually told show up at the house, they'll be somebody there," Ford said.

The victims arrive at a house and find someone lives there and that the place is not for rent, she said. The police are then contacted.

Each of the cases reported in Park City this ski season has resulted in a loss of between approximately $900 and $1,200, according to Ford. The cases included houses and condominiums, mostly in Old Town, she said. The people had to make other arrangements for lodging in Park City, Ford said.

Ford said the Police Department lacks the jurisdiction to pursue the cases since the transaction occurred outside the city. The police in Park City refer them to law enforcement agencies where they live and where the bank that received the money wire is located.

One of the cases was reported late in December, when a Georgia man told the police he had arranged a rental of a condominium on Woodside Avenue after seeing the place advertised on Craigslist. He wired a deposit of $800 to the person who advertised the place, the police have said.

The person arrived in Park City, went to the address, discovered the owner of the condominium lived there and found that the place was not for rent according to the police. The money had been wired to a bank in Texas, according to the police.

Ford recommends people find lodging in Park City through a property management company and with entities that have someone available in person. She also said victims of fraud on Craigslist should contact the site.

Here are some Benefits of Vacation Rentals:
  • In many cases, especially large family/friend groups, you will come out spending less for a vacation rental than you would paying for hotel rooms.
  • No one from the top, bottom, right and left walls asking you to be quiet!
  • No noise coming from the top, bottom, right and left walls (unless its your own people!)
  • Full kitchen at your disposal: Save $ by eating some meals in and prepare food/drinks just the way you like.
  • Everyone is together in one house instead of separated in hotel rooms.
  • All the ice you want without having to go down a public hallway.
  • Morning coffee and tea, just like you like it.
  • No unsatisfying continental breakfasts, "Why did I eat that?"
  • Relax in the pool and/or hot tub with only your friends and family instead of 100s of strangers.

Some Tips when Booking a Vacation Rental:
  • Ask a lot of questions. Make sure they are answered thoroughly to your satisfaction:
  • Do I need to provide bedding or towels?
  • The number of bedrooms, How many it sleeps.
  • What amenities, does it have a fireplace?
  • Location, how close to the resorts?
  • Are a washer/dryer provided, or will I need to visit a Laundromat?
  • How many parking spaces are available for the unit?
  • Who will handle any problems that may arise, i.e., plumbing (are owners or property managers nearby?)
  • Hidden Fees? Ask about utilities, phone charges, cleaning fees, and any other expenses that you may be charged.
  • Will I be responsible for any cleaning when leaving the house?
  • Your best bets are Park City owner rentals, Salt Lake Ski Lodging options, and existing hotels.

All Inclusive Packages
Some can be good but usually are not the way to go. Why? Someone's getting paid a commission! Whether it be cutting back on the quality of the lodging, the time spent here, or limited lift tickets, something has to give. Something has to be cut back on to pay the commissions of the people offering these all-inclusive ski packages! So our advice is to do it yourself. With the Internet by your side, you can view a lodging website, see every room, check dates and availabily, etc. all in the comfort of your home or office. A lodging website usually has ten to fifty times more information than the old way of getting info, a small printed brochure. That goes with everything, the Utah Ski Resorts, Utah Ski Lodging, Utah Restaurants, transportation, you name it.

Discounted Lift Tickets/Lift Passes
You can't buy discount lift tickets at the resorts! That would be cutting their set prices.

You simply buy them when you get to town for as many days as you want.
