Our Local Expert Says:
Park City's best all-around mountain and resort for families and mixed ability groups.
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.

Our Local Expert Says:
Utah's "fanciest" skier-only resort.
Of Park City's three resorts, Deer Valley is certainly the "poshest" in every aspect, with its several on-presmises restaurants and lodges winning national -and international- awards for excellence. Beyond the fine cuisine and luxurious accommodations, this mountain specializes in service -even on the slopes. The resort has six different mountains, 3,000 vertical feet, and 2,026 acres of skiable terrain. Yes, it is a ski hill, but don't worry; Deer Valley's groomers create some of the most velvety corduroy imaginable. Guests are greeted by staff, who wait to carry skis to the hill. They'll even put on your boots if you ask. Private and group lessons are available. No snowboarding allowed is allowed at Deer Valley.
During the summer, the the resort offers some excellent lift- and self-served mountain biking trails. With an elevation reaching almost 9,600 feet, these slopes offer a great reprieve from the sometimes stifling summer heat in the valleys below.
