Overview

Park City Mountain Resort Overview

As the largest ski resort in the United States with over 7,300 skiable acres, Park City Mountain has much to boast about.

The host to the 2002 Winter Olympic games, Park City Mountain Resort is known as an essential world-class destination. It is a rare large resort that is in close proximity to an airport, as it is just a 35-minute drive east from Salt Lake City International Airport. It has three distinct base areas, six signature properties and many diverse ski-in/ski-out hotel and lodging options. It is especially attractive for intermediate skiers, as close to half of its 348 trails are blue, intermediate runs. With 3,200 feet of vertical drop, there’s also plenty of options for advanced and expert terrain lovers, along with 13 bowls and eight terrain parks. Despite its massive scale, Park City still offers many free parking options at the base of the village so you can easily get on the mountain.

The four-season resort is situated at the center of the historic and idyllic town of Park City, Utah, with access to award-winning restaurants that are within walking distance or accessible via the city's free transportation system. If you come in January during the Sundance Film Festival for which Park City is known, you might find yourself rubbing elbows with celebrities out on the town.

Park City Mountain Ski Area

► Alpine ski area

As the largest resort in the United States, there are trails for every type of skier and boarder. Due to the massive scale, it is recommended that you study the trail map and know which areas will lead to your best day on the mountain. There are two bases (Mountain Village and Canyons Village) and both lead to many runs for skiers and boarders of all levels. Some key tips are below based on skill level:

Beginner Terrain is primarily found at the Park City Mountain Village, with Crescent Express, King Con Express and Bonanza Express all taking you to a variety of beginner terrain. There is also a premier learning environment called High Meadow Park which is at Canyons Village, a dedicated learning area which features three Adventure Alleys which are perfect for learning to ski for the first time. While High Meadows Park is on the Canyons side of the mountain, note that there is little variety for beginners there outside of High Meadows Park.

Intermediate Terrain is everywhere and there’s no way you could experience all of the options in a day. If you prefer open runs with a variety of terrain, the King Con Express is a 6-pack that leads to over 10 intermediate trail options. Just take the Eagle lift and head down Spiro to get to King Con. Many intermediate skiers will prefer the Canyons side of the mountain where you will be weaving through aspens left and right. Take the Red Pine Gondola to Chicane, a perfect warm-up run, and then grab the Tombstone Express lift and enjoy hours of great intermediate terrain.

Advanced/Expert Terrain is also plentiful but those wanting the highest thrills will want to head to either Jupiter Peak (Mountain Village) or Murdock Peak (Canyons Village). Murdock involves two chair lifts to Super Condor Express, and from there you can hit the aspen-lined glad of A Chute or Funnel Cloud, or go find some powder in Condor Woods. Jupiter will take three lift rides to access and if you want to get to the summit you will have to skin up.  

► Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing

There are over 70 kilometers of groomed trails in Park City and the surrounding mountains. Basin Recreation grooms 25 kilometers of free multipurpose trails connecting the Utah Olympic Park area with Willow Creek Park. Round Valley, located in Quinn's Junction, is a 25-kilometer trail network offering rolling hills and steep ascents. These free trails are multi-use and dog-friendly. White Pine Nordic Center offers 25 kilometers of fee-based groomed trails.

Originally known as Treasure Mountains Resort, Park City Mountain Resort has been operating since 1963. The last surviving mining company in Park City turned to skiing with help from a federal loan to revive the economically depressed area. The mining company built a gondola, base and summit lodges, chairlifts and a nine-hole golf course.

In 1965 skiers would hop aboard the Skier’s Subway, a modified mining trolley that traveled two and a half miles through the pitch black Spiro Tunnel to Thayne’s Hoist. Then skiers would board the mine elevator and be lifted 1,750 feet to the surface.
