The largest ski area in the entire United States, home to the greatest snow on earth (so locals claim), and named one of the top 20 prettiest towns by Forbes…ladies and gentlemen, it’s Park City! As ski resorts go, this place is up there with the best in the world, totalling up an enormous 2,954 ha of ski terrain with over 300 trails and counting. But it’s not just sheer vastness that makes Park City stand out, it’s the holy grail of excellent quality powder, consistent snowfall, and a distinct lack of wind that generally keeps the white stuff fresh, dry, and floaty.

Our pick for beginners is The Meadows, a wide and mellow beginner trail where they can find some good snow since it's unusually high up the mountain for a green slope compared to other North American resorts!More beginners tips
Intermediates this is your mountain. For a hella long run with steep sections, bridges, and tunnels to keep you twisting and turning, take Alpenglow to Twilight and then connect onto Harmony! It's our favourite here!More intermediates tips
For the biggest drop, Canyon's is where is at. But if you want to test your limits here, take the McConkey's Express Chairlift and hike up to Jupiter Peak, where the heart-racing East Face and Puma Bowl awaits.More experts tips
On the Park City side, you'll find the deepest fresh stuff in the Main Bowl as well as the hike-to terrain along the ridge off Jupiter chairlift. On the Canyons side, hike up Ninety-Nine 90 for endless freshies in the off-piste and backcountry terrain!
Ditch the crowds
Avoid the Silverlode Express and Tombstone Express lifts during peak hours (10:00am - 2:00pm) if you're not a fan of queues!
As one of our best ski resorts for non-skiers in North America, we're pretty sure non-skiers will be well entertained here. The options are endless, we couldn't fit it all here.
With so much terrain to explore and tons of off-slope activities all within this historic mining town, there's something for the whole family to enjoy.
