What is so Special About Park City Ski Resort?

If you’re looking for a ski resort that’s truly world-class, Park City Ski Resort in Park City, Utah
ticks many boxes. Located less than 40 miles from Salt Lake City, this resort has been on the
forefront of ski culture since the 1960s.

With over 350 ski runs, over 3,200 vertical feet of dynamic skiing, and more than 7,300 acres of
powdery terrain to explore, Park City Ski Resort is one of the largest ski resorts in North
America. Add all the great accommodation and the amenities and it’s no surprise that the resort
was named one of the top ski resorts in the world by USA Today and Ski Magazine.

Park City Ski Resort was home to the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, a testament to its quality.
While the ski runs offer plenty of challenges to experienced skiers and snowboarders, there are
also plenty of beginner-friendly runs that allow novice skiers to gain experience and confidence.
42 strategically placed lifts and a free bus system to get you around make it easy to just enjoy
all the resort has to offer.

For beginner skiers, Park City Ski Resort offers numerous gentle slopes and trails. The terrain is
great for learning how to ski, all while enjoying breathtaking mountain views. There are easy
scenic runs through the fir trees, and wide-open runs for practicing basics like turning and
stopping. We’d recommend runs like Drift and Green for beginners.

Intermediate skiers can enjoy the many groomed trails and explore the backcountry on the
resort’s nine lifts. With a variety of ski runs and terrain to choose from, intermediate skiers can
challenge themselves and improve their skills. Hidden Spendour and Sunrise are runs which
present some challenge but are still relatively easy.

For advanced skiers, you’ll have the opportunity to challenge yourself on some of the steepest
slopes in the area. From chutes to bowls, you’ll find a variety of terrain to choose from when
skiing in Park City, allowing you to really take your skills to the next level. There are quite a few
Double Black Diamond runs to test yourself on at Park City Ski Resort. If you’re an expert skier
try the Portuguese Gap or Molly’s.

Then there are the the myriad of other activities apart from skiing. There’s dogsledding, sleigh
rides, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing.

After a strenuous or gentle time out in the snow, there are several dining places from which to
choose. There’s Murdock’s Cafe and Pizzeria which not does great pizzas but also fantastic
soups and coffees. If you’re looking for something a little more upmarket, try The Farm Canyons
Village or The Red Tail Grill, both of which are fine dining establishments, serving great food
and wine. Altogether there are around 16 restaurants and continuously open, so you’re never
short of options.
