Park City Mountain Resort

Park City Mountain Resort has the largest lift-linked ski area in the USA now that Canyons village is fully integrated into it. Away from the skiing, atmospheric Main Street tastefully blends silver-mining history with modern day shops, bars and restaurants, and the Utah Olympic Park provides plenty of other ways to hurtle down a mountain.

Stretching fifteen miles along I-80 and across 17 mountain peaks from Kimball Junction, home of the Utah Olympic Park and Canyons to Park City town, Park City Mountain Resort is the largest ski area  in the US with 7300 skiable acres,  330 plus groomed trails, 41 lifts and eight terrain parks. That should be more than enough for anyone, but really keen skiers might like to know that Deer Valley, whilst not connected, is just across the fence and easily reached by car or bus. Solitude, Brighton, Alta and Snowbird are also within day-trip range. (Advanced skiers can actually ski between them on an organised Utah Interconnect tour). 

And it's not just the quantity of skiing that's impressive. The vertical drop is a very respectable 3226 ft (about 1,000m) and annual snowfall of 360 inches ensures there is enough fluffy powder from November to April. The snow is easy to reach too: there are multiple fast lifts from both Park City and Canyons Village.

Park City Mountain Resort is not all about skiing, though. With skeleton, luge, bobsleigh and ski jumping at the Olympic Park at Kimball Junction, and the Flying Eagle zip wire and Alpine Coaster at Park City, there are plenty of other adrenaline rushes available. Back in town, the resort's historic Main Street harks back to its silver-mining heydays and is a nice place to wander around, with its bars, restaurants and shops. If you come in January, you might glimpse some film stars taking part in Robert Redford’s Sundance Film Festival. 

The resort is also easy to get to: it's about 45 minutes' drive from Salt Lake City's International airport. You can stay on Main Street or in the suburbs or in Canyons village, so there are plenty of accommodation options. A fleet of electric ski buses circulates around the resort, so unless you're staying very far out, you won't need a car.
