Park City ski resort is one of the undisputed gems of American skiing. The resort is built in the style of a colonial American village with quaint wooden buildings and wide streets. A massive, well-connected ski area with lots of variety, it's the perfect place to try skiing in North America.
Park City Mountain resort boasts an enviable array of wide runs, large bowls and a range of short blacks, blues and greens tumbling down into either Park City or Canyons Village base. The Quicksilver gondola is the key link between this massive ski area, providing speedy and reliable access to either ski resort. At Park City, once you’ve taken two lifts up to Summit House you’re ready to play, whatever your level.
Those seeking the tough stuff can venture further up to the couloirs, cliffs and plunges in the cluster of bowls from Jupiter Peak downwards. Staying at Canyons Village there is a range of ski in ski out options that give you easy access to the slopes. Take the heated Orange bubble chairlift or Red Pine gondola from Canyons Village base right into the heart of Park City ski resort.

There are over 17 peaks for skiers to enjoy, and with 40% of this covered with snow-making abilities, fantastic snow is ensured.

Try the Super Condor or McConkey’s chairlifts – they tend to be quieter and serve some of Park City ski resort’s more scenic runs. Each day the ski resort grooms more than 100 runs of varying difficulty levels, to offer the most groomed terrain of any ski resort in North America. Check out the groomers off of the King Con lift. They are intermediate heaven. And for the beginners, Homerun is ideal. It’s lengthy and easy – more enjoyable mid-morning when more advanced skiers are further up on the mountain.
With 14 back-bowls to explore, Park City is a great choice for snowboarders.
