Park City Mountain Resort
Enjoy vacations of year-round sporting adventures, entertainment and relaxation at Park City Mountain Resort. This superb resort was a major venue for snowboarding and giant slalom ski racing during Salt Lake City’s 2002 Winter Olympics. In 2015, the resort merged with neighboring Canyons Resort to create one of the biggest skiable areas in the U.S.
Today, Park City Mountain Resort has a terrain of 7,300 acres (2,900 hectares) and is a paradise for snow sport enthusiasts. Ride one of 38 lifts to elevations of up to 10,000 feet (3,050 meters) where over 300 perfectly groomed runs await. Challenge runs previously skied by Olympic champions and hone your freestyling skills at the seven terrain parks.
With runs suitable for all levels, the resort is great for families and beginners. Experienced instructors are on hand to guide you through your first skiing steps. Drop the children off at the daycare center and enjoy stress-free days on the slopes.
The winter fun doesn’t stop with skiing. Take a horse-drawn sleigh ride, guided snowshoe tour and dog-sledding adventure. Try heli-skiing and cross-country skiing.
Come in the summer and speed down the mountain slopes on a thrilling alpine slide. Traverse miles of natural trails by bike, foot and horseback. Relax on a scenic gondola ride with panoramic views or travel above forest-covered valleys on a zip-line course. Play 18 holes at miniature and disc golf courses.
Find bars, cafés and restaurants to suit all tastes at the resort’s two villages, Canyons Village and Park City Village. Browse for sporting apparel at retail outlets and treat yourself to a rejuvenating massage at Canyons Resort Spa.
