Park City, Utah is known for a lot of things. Beautiful scenery, delicious dining, an idyllic, historic downtown, gorgeous hiking trails— and of course, skiing. There’s a reason that the 2002 Winter Olympics were held here, and it has a lot to do with the endless inventory of ski trails and the perfection of the powder that we’re blessed with every winter.
With over 10,000 skiable acres— including the largest ski resort in the US (Park City Mountain)— and runs for every age and skill level, there’s a trail for everyone to ski in Park City, Utah.
Here are our three favorite spots to get your glide on, in no particular order.
When you arrive in Park City from the Salt Lake City, Utah airport, this welcoming and laid-back ski resort is the first base area you come to. With lots of ski shops and schools in the courtyard, Canyons Village is your all-in-one shop for all you need to hit the slopes— with lots of style and confidence. There’s also the Orange Bubble Express— an enclosed, fully heated chairlift that you have to take for a spin while you’re here. You’ll also want to grab some lunch or dinner at The Farm, the award-winning restaurant in Canyons Village that only serves the freshest farm-to-table fare.
