A massive, well-connected ski area with lots of variety and a pretty village centre which gives it more soul than some of the rival resorts - the perfect place to try a North American ski holiday.
Park City Mountain 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 new Quicksilver gondola is the key link between this massive ski area, providing speedy and reliable access to either 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 Mountain.
Climbing up through the middle of the town, Main Street is the lively heart of Park City, snapping to attention around après-ski time, with live music, dancing, and even home-brewed ale at the Wasatch Pub.
