If you’re looking for a ski resort that has it all, come to Park City Resort for the best terrain anywhere. With more than 7,300 acres spread across two amazing resorts, you’re more than likely to find the right terrain, no matter what your skill level, preferences, or mood is on any given day.
The resort is home to 336 trails, 14 bowls, 41 lifts, seven terrain parks and a summit elevation of 10,000 feet, so no matter what you’re looking for, you’re bound to find the best skiing imaginable.
If you’re a beginner, chances are you may feel a little daunted when you first go to Park City Mountain Resort. Only 9 percent of the resort is dedicated to beginners, which may not seem like a lot, but when you take into account the vastness of the terrain, you’ll find plenty to enjoy when you strap on your boards.
Look for the lift called First Time (that’s a hint); it will bring you to First Time and close to Turtle Trail, if you want a little more variety. Take the Town lift and catch Homerun, Drift, and Blanche. If you catch the Bonanza Express lift near the Town lift, you can catch the upper portion of Homerun, Claimjumper, and Broadway.
Be careful, though, as some of these can take you to some sporty intermediates for a short bit — or if you take a wrong turn, you could land on some black diamond runs.
Intermediate Terrain at Park City
If you’re an intermediate skier or rider, you’ll be glad to know that a full 51 percent of the terrain at Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons Village is devoted to people like you. Whether you’re looking for bowl skiing, groomed trails, or something through the trees, Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons Village has you covered.
The lower portions of the mountains have wide, groomed slopes, but you’ll see some pretty spectacular terrain if you head on up the mountain. Don’t be surprised that advanced terrain such as black diamond and double black diamond slopes are mixed in with your challenging blues. Just be sure to take the right trail.
Shredder’s Paradise: Terrain Parks and Pipes
