Best tips for Park City
The big news for 2015/16 is that Park City Mountain Resort (covered in this chapter) is to be linked to next-door Canyons (which has its own chapter) by a new gondola and new runs to form the USA’s biggest linked ski area. It could easily be made even bigger by linking to neighbouring Deer Valley (which also has its own chapter), which is separated from the Park City slopes only by a fence between two pistes, and by separate ownership. Any skier holidaying in Park City should definitely spend a day or more at Deer Valley (but boarding is banned there) and international visitors can buy a pass covering days at both. Park City’s historic Main Street is a compelling place to spend time, with colourful old buildings and lively bars and restaurants. And the town is a good base for visiting other Utah resorts, including the famously powdery Snowbird and Alta (both have their own chapters), less than an hour away by car. Park City is about 45 minutes by road from Salt Lake City. It was a silver-mining boom town, and in the late 19th century it boasted a population of 10,000, a red-light area, a Chinese quarter and 27 saloons.
- Entertaining, historic Main Street
- Lots of bars and restaurants make nonsense of Utah’s Mormon image
- Easy to ski Deer Valley as well as newly linked Canyons area
