Our Favorite Trails at Park City Mountain

Posted in Park City Mountain Resort | Comments Off

Park City MountainPark City Mountain Resort is one of the most popular ski and snowboard resorts in the country. As you plan your time on Park City Mountain’s famous slopes, enjoying the fresh air and beautiful scenery dotted with historic mining buildings, check out some of our favorite trails for all ability levels. There’s a run for everyone at Park City Mountain!

Best Green Trails at Park City Mountain

  • Home Run: Named because it stretches 3.5 miles from the top of the Bonanza lift all the way to the base area, Home Run is a perfect way for beginners to get a look at a number of different areas of Park City Mountain
  • Claim Jumper: Serviced by the hi-speed Silverload Six-Pack, turn laps on this groomed cruiser, or if you’d like a longer run, connect with Broadway down to the bottom of the King Kon lift.

Best Blue Trails at Park City Mountain

  • King Kon Area: An intermediate skier’s paradise, the King Kon lift offers 14 different blue and double-blue trails. You could spend the whole day here and not take the same run twice!
  • Single Jack: Cruise down Single Jack, accessed from the Thaynes or Motherload lifts, and get a close-up look at Park City’s mining history.
  • Georgeanna: While your crazier friends tackle McConkey’s Bowl, enjoy Georgeanna and if you’re feeling edgy, ski up to the boundary at the top and stick one foot into Deer Valley! For more of a challenge, finish the run by taking on the steep finish of Tycoon.

Best Black Trails at Park City Mountain

  • Jupiter Lift: There’s always untouched powder to be found off of the Jupiter lift, especially if you’re willing to hike up to Scott’s Bowl or Pinecone Ridge.
  • Fool’s Gold: Fool’s Gold offers some bumps with a pitch that’s perfect for someone starting to get comfortable in the moguls. To find some powder, duck into the trees of Motherlode Meadows to the left of the trail.
  • Blue Slip Bowl: This previously off-limits bowl got its name from the former Park City Mountain employees who were caught ducking the ropes and handed the resort’s version of a pink slip at the bottom. Now open to all, enjoy the trail so good that people were willing to risk their jobs over it.

Visit Our Three Beautiful Ski Resorts in Park City

Posted in Canyons Resort, Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort, Uncategorized | Comments Off

Ski Resorts in Park CityNestled in the heart of the Wasatch Range, Park City boasts three gorgeous and first class ski resorts all within six miles of each other. Park City Mountain Resort, Deer Valley Resort and Canyons Resort all offer some of the best skiing on Earth, but they each have their own unique attributes. As you make your winter ski plans, come and enjoy the fantastic ski resorts in Park City!

Park City Mountain Resort

Located right near the center of Park City, Park City Mountain Resort has plenty of trails for skiers of all ability levels and will offer an upgraded experience this ski season after its purchase by Vail Resorts this fall.

Featuring eight peaks, nine bowls and more than 3,000 acres of skiing, you could spend days at Park City and still not ski all of it.

No need to split up your group in the lift line either. Unique among the ski resorts in Park City, PCMR offers three high-speed “six-packs” – six-person chairlifts that allow you to stick together on your way to the top of the mountain.

Locals Tip: Beat the crowds by grabbing lunch at the Mid-Mountain Lodge, which served more than 1,000 miners a day back in Park City’s mining days. The historic building was renovated and moved in one piece to its current location near the base of the Pioneer and McConkey’s lifts, where it serves up sandwiches, soups and the famous Mid-Mountain Burger to hungry skiers and snowboarders.

Deer Valley Resort

The poshest of the three ski resorts in Park City, Deer Valley offers an upscale, but not snobby, ski experience that perennially puts it near the top of the annual rankings of the best resorts in North America.

Deer Valley’s famously well-groomed blue terrain is a utopia for intermediate skiers, and more than a quarter of its trails are for beginners, giving new skiers a chance to see almost every part of the resort. Experts will be happy too, with beautiful glades, open bowls and thrilling steeps.

Customer service is a major focus at Deer Valley with ski valets to help you unload your car, tissues (and sometimes cookies!) in the lift lines and complimentary overnight ski storage, in addition to offering some of the best resort food in the country. Relax in Deer Valley’s luxury; you won’t regret it!

Locals Tip: While at Deer Valley, try their world famous turkey chili, and if you like it, buy the mix for a cheap price and continue to enjoy best dish out of all the ski resorts in Park City when you get home!

Canyons Resort

Offering more terrain than any of the ski resorts in Park City, recent renovations have made Canyons Resort one of the hottest ski areas in the country. With 182 trains spread out across 4,000 acres, you will always be able to escape the crowds at Canyons.

Canyons is an expert skier’s paradise, with almost 50 percent of its terrain categorized as black and double black, but there are still plenty of trails for the less adventurous. Enjoy outstanding views as you ride the Red Pine Gondola up over the canyons that serve as the namesake for the resort and then head straight to the slopes!

Like Park City, Canyons is run by Vail Resorts and both ski areas are members of the Epic Pass, which allows skiers to buy four-day, seven-day or season-long passes that are good for skiing at both resorts.

Locals Tip: Head to the Day Break, Dreamscape and Dreamcatcher lifts, where the crowds are small and the skiing is great!

As you make your plans to explore the three amazing ski resorts in Park City, use Park City Lodging to help you find the perfect place to stay. We have properties at all three resorts and in downtown Park City for groups of all sizes. Let us help you plan the perfect vacation!
