NileGuide Expert tip:
To get the most out of Park City Mountain Resort, check out the numerous offerings of its extensive ski school.
Park City Mountain Resort garnered international acclaim as the primary ski and snowboard venue for the Salt Lake 2002 Winter Olympics. A large-scale resort, this offers a wide range of terrain, from novice-friendly, broad and flat trails to steep, rolling groomers, and steeper yet, tree-line chutes. In addition to the varied terrain, PCMR has a wide host of lodges, restaurants, hotels, shops, rental options, and bars -making it a perfect whole-family destination. Well maintained and outfitted, this resort is nonetheless more accessible, price-wise, than Deer Valley.
Originally opened in 1963, the Park City Mountain Resort also offers great summer activities including an alpine slide, coaster, and zip lines. During the December through March ski season, the Olympic-sized snowboard half-pipe is the most popular slope on the mountain. The Canyons and Deer Valley Resort are also located in Park City, but the PCMR is the largest and first of the Park City ski areas.
