Park City

Park City, Utah
  • Weather: Sunny, 39F
Park City could certainly stake a rightful claim of being the “perfect mountain town.” Combining its silver mining town heritage, an artistic vibe and a deep appreciation for the outdoors, Park City strikes a balance between luxury and comfort, all the while showing a deep appreciation for athletics, arts and community. Whatever your daily activity may be, you’ll work up an appetite for the diversity of fine restaurants that line Park City's Historic Main Street and beyond, and you'll want to wind down after a long day with the craft whiskeys and vodkas at the High West Distillery and Saloon. And the offerings for outdoor recreation are immense. The winter slopes were once featured in the Olympics, and in summer the mountains and nearby state parks and reservoirs transform into a hiking, mountain biking, fishing and camping mecca.   

Winter Sports

If skiing powder is your thing, Park City has you covered. With 426 downhill trails across 9,326 acres and numerous spots to Nordic ski, there are limitless possibilities. These numbers partially explain why the U.S. Ski and Snowboard team is headquartered in Park City. Other reasons include unbeatable proximity, quality of recreational opportunities and quality of life.

Park City Mountain is the largest ski resort in the United States, while Deer Valley is one of country's most popular luxury mountain resorts. The nearby Soldier Hollow Nordic Center, once featured in the Olympic games, offers great cross-country skiing. Newest to the area is Woodward Park City, an adventure sports center with a lift of its own. This Park City area quick guide will help you make the most of your ski trip to Park City.
