With over 70 km of groomed cross-country ski trails, Park City really has something for everyone. The trails right outside the White Pine Touring Nordic Center are a easy to access and a great option to get started. Rent your gear in the shop and slide on to the trail just outside. There is a 3 km beginner track, a 5 km intermediate track, and the terrain connects to an additional 10 km of trails in the valley. However, these trails do require a pass so be sure to buy one at the Nordic Center before you leave.

And 2,000 feet below is Round Valley—another Nordic area with groomed trails that are free and open to the public. And yep, it's on the bus route. Grab the High Valley Transit 102 Gateway route to the Park City Hospital and jump on the trails there!
