Park City was one of the first ski resort towns in the United States and we have some of the best snow in the world!   Thousands of people visit Park City because it is an excellent location for winter sports including skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, ice-skating, bobsledding and more.

Each year, an average of 350 inches of snow covers our quaint resort town and residents use this to create a variety of bowls, terrain parks and rinks over about 9000 acres of terrain. Read below for just some of the great activities we offer at our winter wonderland, Park City.

Skiing and Snowboarding

The Park City mountain ranges undoubtedly have something for everyone and our convenient transit system can take you everywhere for free. Fifty six ski lifts can take you to 426 runs fit for a variety of skill levels. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or seasoned veteran. Everyone from first timers to Olympic athletes can enjoy themselves, and you can also rent equipment and book lessons while you’re in town. Although snowboarding isn’t allowed at Deer Valley Resort, you can take your board to various terrain parks, half-pipes, big jumps and more at The Canyons and Park City Mountain Resort. Park City Peaks also offers negotiable discount rates for big groups who choose to stay with us and the mountains are literally on our doorstep!
