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!

 

 

What to Know About Deer Valley Resort

Posted in Deer Valley | Comments Off

Deer Valley ResortRated as the one of the top two ski resorts in the West for eight straight years by SKI Magazine, Deer Valley Resort offers the perfect mix of breathtaking terrain, stunning vistas and first-class customer service. No ski trip to Park City is complete without a visit to Deer Valley Resort, so here’s all that you’ll need to know as you make your plans (note: snowboarding is not permitted at Deer Valley Resort).

Getting to Deer Valley Resort

Deer Valley Resort is located just a few miles east of downtown Park City. Take Deer Valley Drive from the center of town or hop on one of the free Park City busses that run from downtown, Park City Mountain Resort, Canyons Resort and many points in between.

If you’re driving, pull up in front of the Snow Park Lodge where Deer Valley Resort’s smiling staff will be happy to help you unload your skis and gear (and maybe your family!) before you go park. No schlepping required!

Deer Valley Resort Lift Tickets

Deer Valley Resort limits the number of lift tickets that it sells each day to ensure that you will never encounter crowds on the mountain. During the holiday periods surrounding Christmas, New Years and Presidents Day, the resort frequently reaches capacity.

If you’re going to visit Deer Valley Resort during one of those periods, consider purchasing a lift ticket online in advance or simply stop by one of the lift ticket offices a day in advance to get your pass for the following day.

Top Trails at Deer Valley Resort

Deer Valley Resort is famous for its immaculately groomed terrain, making the resort a paradise for beginner and intermediate skiers, but there is plenty of challenging expert trails for advanced skiers as well!

Start your day on Bald Mtn., served by the Sterling, Wasatch and Sultan Expresses with cruisers like Keno, Legal Tender and Nabob. Then head over to Flagstaff Mtn., served by the Quincy and Silver Strike Expresses and tackle fun trails like Hidden Treasure, Hawkeye and Lost Boulder. As you make your way back to Snow Park Lodge at the end of the day, hop on the Homestake Lift and zoom down Big Stick all the way to the bottom.

Expert skiers will want to explore the terrain off of the Empire and Lady Morgan Expresses, including the always bumpy Solace, Conviction and Domingo and the beautiful aspen glades of Centennial. Lady Morgan Bowl usually offers some great powder, just don’t go down too far our you’ll have to hike your way out! On a powder day, visit the Mayflower and Sultan lifts on the other side of the mountain for great shredding with no lift lines!

Where to Eat

Beyond its incredible terrain, Deer Valley Resort is known as one of the most posh ski resorts in North America, and that extends to its food! All of Deer Valley’s on-mountain restaurants offer food much better than typical ski resort fare at prices that are still affordable.

Grab lunch at the Silver Lake Restaurant or Bald Mountain Pizza in the Silver Lake Base Area, or escape the crowds a bit by skiing over to the Empire Canyon Grill. Make sure to try a bowl of the famous Deer Valley Turkey Chili!

Local Tip – Free Ski Storage at Deer Valley Resort

If you’re going to ski at Deer Valley on consecutive days, take advantage of the complimentary overnight ski storage available at Snow Park Lodge and Silver Lake Lodge. For a few dollars, they’ll throw in a wax too!

As you plan your visit to Deer Valley Resort, use Park City Lodging to find the perfect place to stay! We offer a number of properties in and around Deer Valley, as well as in all other parts of Park City with easy access to Deer Valley shuttles. Let us help you plan your Park City vacation!

Whether you’re a beginner looking to hit the slopes for the first time or an expert searching for the best untouched powder, there’s something for everyone in Park City. As you plan your stay with Park City Lodging, here’s what you need to know about the three resorts that call Park City home.

Park City Mountain Resort

The variety pack of Park City, Utah skiing, Park City Mountain Resort offers a little bit of everything from easy cruisers to hikeable backcountry terrain. Its trails can be accessed directly from Main Street via the Town Lift, proving a ski-in, ski-out experience for anyone staying downtown, while the resort base located only a few minutes away has a number of ski shops offering rentals and gear.

Beginners can escape the bunny hills on Homerun, one of the longest trails at the resort that runs from the top of the Bonanza Lift all the way to the base area, offering some of the best views in Park City, Utah skiing. The trails off of the Silverlode Lift, one of PCMR’s many six-person chair lifts, offer great intermediate terrain that soaks up the morning sun with nearby King Con Lift offering a number of blues and double blues as well. Experts will want to head to the Jupiter Lift, which offers acres of in-bounds hikeable terrain, or the steep moguls of McConkey’s Bowl.

Built above an abandoned silver mine, old mining buildings and equipment dot the landscape at Park City Mountain Resort. For a greater understanding of the history, take one of the complimentary mountain tours that leave twice daily.

Deer Valley Resort

Deer Valley is a skiers paradise, literally, because no snowboarders are allowed. Known for its first-class service and elegant groomed trails, Deer Valley has earned a reputation as one of the poshest ski areas in the country. Don’t be surprised if you’re offered free cookies in the lift line!

Canyons Resort

Start your day by riding the Red Pine Gondola, the only goldola in Park City, over a beautiful canyon, and ski over to the Tombstone Express to warm up with groomers like Another World or some bumps on Cloud 9. Then escape the crowds by heading to the Dreamscape Lift, with fantastic intermediate trails like Alpenglow and Bliss. Experts will want to take the Ninety-Nine 90 Express to the highest peak in the resort and tear up the moguls of 94 Turns or try the gladed trails to the right of the lift.

FIS Freestyle World Cup and Sprint Grand Prix

Posted in Deer Valley, Events in Park City, Park City Mountain Resort, Ski and Snowboard | Comments Off

The moguls course for the FIS Freestyle World Cup at Deer Valley.

We’re lucky in Park City to play host to many unique events year round. As a winter sports enthusiast, I get particularly excited when our town hosts winter skiing and snowboarding events. Last week, and through the weekend, two of our resorts hosted major competitions: Deer Valley hosted the annual FIS Freestyle World Cup and Park City Mountain Resort hosted the Sprint U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix and Visa U.S. Freeskiing Grand Prix. For those of you unfamiliar with the ski and snowboarding competition circuit, Deer Valley hosted moguls, aerials and dual moguls; and Park City Mountain Resort hosted both snowboarding and skiing big air and halfpipe competitions.

Besides going to the events, which are all free and open to the public, there is also a free concert each year that kicks off the long weekend. Lower Main Street is closed and the crowd gathers, snow or clear skies, to hear the music each year. This year we were very excited when we found out that Cold War Kids would be playing, and they certainly did not disappoint.
