Park City Mountain Resort#7 in Best Things To Do in Park City
The Park City Mountain Resort, which merged with the Canyons Resort in 2015, is the largest ski area in the United States, boasting more than 7,300 acres. The resort features 41 lifts, eight terrain parks, 14 bowls, six half-pipes, one super pipe and more than 300 trails, as well as several ski-in, ski-out accommodation choices, ranging from hotels and lodges to private homes and condominiums. A licensed day care center, a ski and snowboard school and an array of dining choices from casual ski-in restaurants to fine dining are just a few of the amenities, and the Quicksilver gondola allows guests to traverse the mountain with ease. What's more, Mountain Concierge service is available to answer traveler questions, book tours or make dining reservations.
Recent visitors praised the sheer number and variety of ski runs here, and many prefer the Park City runs to those at the Canyons, although most agree that the pricing for lift tickets, accommodations and dining is pricey. Some reviewers found the layout of the runs confusing, and bemoaned the poor Wi-Fi access, however, many agreed that the free transportation around the resort was convenient and easy to use. Families particularly appreciated the ski school and said a few lessons made all the difference in their ski experience. Some recent guests warned that the lower slopes can be particularly crowded on weekends and holidays.
Day skiers have multiple parking options including three surface lots at the Park City Base and the Cabriolet parking lot at the bottom of Canyons Resort Drive. From the Cabriolet lot, skiers can catch the open-air lift to Canyons Village and the Park City lifts and from the other parking areas; the free Park City shuttles service multiple stops at the resort. Day lift tickets are available for purchase at each of the base areas and cost $134 for adults, $92 for seniors and $86 for children; discounts are available for advance purchase online. Two and three-day tickets are also offered, as well as an RFID EpicDay card, which allows users to electronically upload lift tickets. Visit the website for information on rates for the ski school and for special packages that combine lift tickets and accommodations.
