Park City Ski 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 7,300 skiable acres, 330+ groomed trails, 41 lifts and eight terrain parks. That should be more than enough for anyone, but 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 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, Park City’s historic Main Street harks back to its silver-mining heydays and is a nice place to wander around, with its bars, restaurants, art galleries and shops. If you come in January, you might glimpse some film stars taking part in Robert Redford’s Sundance Film Festival.
Getting to Park City from Salt Lake City’s International airport is an easy 45-minute drive (37 miles) and the choice of accommodation includes plenty of condominiums, hotels and resorts to suit all budgets. You can stay on Main Street or in the suburbs or in Canyons village. A fleet of electric ski buses circulates around the resort, so unless you’re staying very far out, you won’t need a car.
