Park City Ski Resort in a Nutshell
Dating back to the great silver mining boom of 1872, Park City is brimming with history, character and atmosphere. It is an excellent base as Deer Valley is next door and The Canyons a short drive away. All are covered on the great value Three Resort International lift ticket and offer over 9,000 acres of unbelievable skiable terrain, from cruising groomers to steep and deep bowls. Just 45 minutes from Salt Lake City Airport you will discover ‘The Greatest Snow on Earth’ at one of North America's best-known resorts and Utah's largest ski area, both in terms of skiable acreage and lift capacity. The resort opened in 1963 when it was known as Treasure Mountain. Since then, the legendary powder snow of Park City has long been an irresistible attraction for skiers and Park City Mountain Resort offers terrain to please every ability, level and taste. A former mining town, this colourful past is at the heart of Park City and the spirit of the Old West is still be to be found in the historic Victorian buildings on Main Street. Skiing in North America doesn't get better than this!
Park City Mountain Resort hosted the snowboard events and the men's and women's giant alpine slalom events in the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. Millions of dollars of improvements have been made, making the resort what it is today.
Skiing in Park City is at an altitude of 6900 feet with the stunningly beautiful Wasatch Mountains as a backdrop, just 37 miles east of the Salt Lake International Airport. It is home to three enormous ski areas: Deer Valley, The Canyons and Park City Mountain Resort. All three are in close proximity to each other. Park City also has an air temperature warmer than the North American norm. According to locals their snow is 'fluffed and dried' in the clouds as they come over the desert, before being dumped on the resort.
The town has an ambience that is reminiscent of Park City, Utah's past life as an historic mining town and is filled with a variety of unique shops, restaurants, bars and art galleries. There is even a saloon owned by Robert Redford and, ironically, once robbed by the real Sundance Kid that Redford famously portrayed on film.
Night skiing is offered seven nights a week on one beginner and one intermediate slope. It attracts both skiers and snowboarders alike and is a major tourist attraction for skiers from all over the United States. Park City holds many training courses for the U.S. Ski Team, including slalom and giant slalom runs. The resort hosted all snowboard events and the men's and women's alpine giant slalom events in the 2002 Winter Olympics.
Beautifully restored Main Street, with its old wooden sidewalks and clapboard buildings, is in the centre of Park City. It is here that the most lively bars and restaurants can be found.
