Park City Mountain

Park City Mountain   |  Scott Markewitz
  • Status: Summer Operations
  • Weather: Mostly Cloudy, 42F

Between its proximity to its namesake Park City and its modern Olympic legacy, Park City Mountain has developed a reputation for sophistication, excellent skiing, world-class terrain parks and accessibility. It was ranked by SKI magazine as North America's #1 Most Accessible Resort, and that was all before adding the nine mountains, three terrain parks, refined amenities and unparalleled access to the 4,000 acres of the adjacent Canyons Resort. So let's do the numbers: 30 to 40 minutes from the airport to 17 peaks, 14 bowls and seven terrain parks on 7,300 acres — if we've done our math right (and if we are reasonably current with this ever-changing resort).

Plan Your Ski Trip

Silver Mining History

Park City’s first ski business began in 1963, when the last surviving silver mining company (United Park City Mines) built lifts on what was then called Treasure Mountains (now Park City Mountain Resort). Peruse Park City’s mining history through the old buildings that still line PCMR trails like Bonanza, Keystone, Claim Jumper, First Time and The Hoist. Grab your lunch at the Mid-Mountain Lodge, which goes back more than 100 years. Originally a boardinghouse for miners (serving more than 1,000 miners per day), it now serves hungry skiers.

Run Highlights

Make a Note

  • The Orange Bubble Express - This lift keeps things warm on particularly frosty trips up the mountain. "It’s like being inside a pair of ski goggles" as you glide to the top.
  • Park and pipe - Transworld Snowboarding magazine voted PCMR's terrain parks the best in Utah thanks to the precision engineering of its half-pipe.
  • The Park City Base Area side - This location mixes up the mountain experience with runs for all levels, four terrain parks and two halfpipes.
  • Snowfall - The resort accumulates 360 annual inches of Utah's famous powder across 116 runs.
  • Early birds get the fresh tracks - Get the mountain to yourself by signing up for an All Mountain Club session.
  • Parks Progress - Canyon’s three terrain parks are built in a progressive format — master one and you can move on to the next.
  • Get a lift from town - There’s no need to drive to the resort when you can grab a seat on the Town Lift, which loads right on Park City's Historic Main Street.

Cuisine Highlight

Cloud Dine - Grab lunch at the top of Dream Peak, at the top of the Dreamscape and Dreamcatcher lifts, at the newly redesigned and expanded Cloud Dine. Healthy and hearty cuisine options include made-to-order salad, flatbread pizzas, sandwiches and soups. This site also has one of the best views of the mountain.
