Overview by Nathan Borchelt

Appearances can deceive—from the parking lot of Park City Mountain Resort, the main allure appears to be the massive half pipe, which dwarfs the surrounding mountain, a lazy-looking stretch of rolling hills interlaced with lifts. Don't be fooled, however. Hop on the King Con high-speed quad at the mountain base and you'll soon realize that the resort stretches across a massive 3,300 acres, with a total vertical drop of 3,100 feet and 114 defined runs, the afore-mentioned Olympic-sized half pipe, copious terrain parks, bowls a'plenty, and numerous entry-level training slopes.

With all those options, you'll find your sweet spot. Experts should keep their ears open for when snow patrol stops blasting explosives at Jupiter Bowl; shoot to get there just as the old double lift starts rumbling and you'll find some of the longest, steep-and-deep runs in the Park City area, every one choked with feet of Utah's famed Champagne powder. Black-diamond skiers can also test their legs and skills by hitting the double-blacks at Pinecone Ridge and Scotts Bowl, or explore Motherload Meadows further down the mountain. Glade skiers, meanwhile, should weave their way to McConkey's, a six-pack lift off the Bonanza Lift that accesses some spectacular tree skiing in Molly's Bowl. Intermediates will find themselves at home on this part of the mountain, too. Or you can yo-yo off the King Con lift all day. In short, there's enough terrain to almost make you feel overwhelmed—or downright lost. Thankfully, the resort offers a fantastic that will let you create a mountain tour customized to

Traveler Reviews of Park City


Nick rates Park City
My family came along on my most recent trip to Park City. We had so many great lodging choices at all price levels and all were so close to the resort or local public transit system. My personal favorite run of the trip was when I went on a free historical tour of the mountain. The volunteer mountain guide led our small group down black and blue runs and really gave an informative overview of the silver mining history in the area. Make a point to go on this tour when you visit Park City Mountain Resort. I'll be going again on my next visit....it's that good!. Pros: Great for kids, Great terrain variety, Short lines, Good tours, Easy to access, Well maintained, Adventure Alleys are fun.

Park City Mountain Resort has a run to fit any skier or boarder in your family. The Signature 3 Ski School is ideal for your 3-5 year old kiddos. My preschooler had a blast and really developed strong ski skills as well as a love of skiing! The group and private adult ski lessons are worth every penny. My confidence levels grew dramatically thanks to very patient and totally cool instructors. My black diamond skiing spouse came down the mountains thrilled with how well the slopes are maintained as well as by the variety of terrain available. Park City is an ideal place for your next ski holiday. Pros: Great for kids, Easy to access, Well maintained, Short lines.

My family and I visited Park City, Utah in March. It was absolutely B-E-Autiful! The weather was great, not to cold but not to warm. We got 3 feet of gorgeous snow one night out of the 4 we were there. The crows were small, and the lift lines were small. The staff was great, and they were very willing to help you at any time. The city at night was beautiful, and there were so many choices of cuisine; from steak houses to japanese to itailian, everything was great! I hope to return very soon, because it was the best ski vacation I have been on by far!. Pros: Great Staff, Great for kids, Well maintained, Easy to access, Beautiful Slopes, Short lines. Cons: Expensive.
