Park City Mountain Resort offers an incredible amount of terrain that’s easy to access.
Park City, Utah, was once a little mining town—but now its notoriety has shifted to skiing and the impressive nightlife that follows. And it’s not so little anymore: One of the town’s two resorts has grown tremendously in size since both the Park City Mountain and neighboring Canyons Resort properties were purchased and combined by Vail Resorts, making one gigantic, continuous Park City Mountain Resort.


PARK CITY MOUNTAIN RESORT
DOC’S RUN

Located just above Park City Mountain Resort’s Canyons Village, Doc’s Run overlooks the village area and Swaner Preserve and Ecocenter’s open space. On a bluebird day, you can even see as far as the Uinta Mountain Range.  Doc’s Run offers a steady pitch, allowing you to coast into Canyons Village with ease.  It’s a great way to finish up a day on the mountain, as it is accessible via the Orange Bubble Express lift mid-station, which drops you off right next to Lookout Cabin where the fondue and views from the deck will knock your socks off.

Navigating winter weather can be tricky, especially for those who’ve never been to a winter climate like Park City, Utah before.  Worry not— if it’s your first time to a mountain town, we have you covered.  Follow these tips and you’ll be more comfortable, warmer, and happier in chilly and snowy weather.  And, might we add, you don’t have to ditch style to stay warm.

Park City's two resorts have so much terrain to cover, you won't get close to exploring it all in seven days. 
Park City is unique among winter vacation destinations because of the diversity that is created by having two world-class ski operations within minutes of each other. In some cases, Deer Valley Resort is separated by a rope on a ridge from Park City Mountain Resort, but there is no connection beyond that, so you’ll rely on the character, access, and infrastructure of the town to open the gates to both. You could easily spend 7 days at only one, but for this itinerary, buckle up for a whirlwind tour of both.

Deer Valley has transformed what a ski resort can be. 
When you arrive at Deer Valley Resort, you see where the notion of first-class service and skiing are fused. A couple generations ago, people expected a rustic experience when they went skiing: cafeteria food, camp-like lodging, and a little bit of roughing it. That was part of the package.

Park City, Utah is home to two resorts – Deer Valley and Park City Mountain – which, combined, offer over 9,000 skiable acres.  That’s a lot of terrain ready and waiting for you to enjoy. There is no denying it – skiing and snowboarding both require quite a lot of gear, making packing for your next ski trip seem like a daunting task.  To help ease the process, we compiled a list that’s divided into items we suggest you bring along with you in your suitcase and those that are easy to rent from one of Park City’s area rental shops or outfitters.
