Skiing and Snowboarding

Watching all of the incredible athletes compete in the Winter Olympic Games every four years inspires fond memories of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. Although the opening and closing ceremonies were held in Salt Lake City, many of the major skiing and snowboarding events were held in Park City.

The skiing and snowboarding here is world class with two resorts just a few miles apart Deer Valley Resort, voted best ski resort in America for 2018 by Skimag.com, and Park City Mountain, the largest ski resort in the country. The offerings here for snowfall, groomers, backcountry, terrain parks, and lift quality are of the highest quality anywhere in the world.

You’re just a lift ticket away.

Deer Valley Resort

Deer Valley, where the slalom and freestyle ski competitions were held in 2002, combines the hospitality of a five star hotel with world class skiing ( no snowboarding allowed on this mountain). With over 2,000 skiable acres and 300 inches of annual snowfall, finding some fresh turns is never difficult, and there are plenty of runs for skiers of every age and ability.

If you’re not ready for the double black diamond runs, Deer Valley has numerous ski classes and opportunities to learn. There are group lessons for the kids or one-on-one with an instructor. If you want to try your hand at telemarking, there’re lessons for that too. You can even book a former Olympian to show you around the resort for the day. Deer Valley is rated the number one ski resort in the country for a reason, so punch your pass and jump on the high-speed lifts.

Park City Mountain

If you recall seeing Sean White launch almost 20 feet above the lip of the half-pipe, or Red Gerard spin through the air earning the U.S. its first Olympic gold in PyeongChang, you may wonder how someone acquires such skills. Without a doubt they trained in world-class terrain parks and half-pipes like those found at Park City Mountain. Feature parks consist of big, steep jumps, manmade rails, fixed features, and anything else you could possibly want from freestyle terrain. There are numerous runs and features with each given a particular rating, so you’ll never feel lost in a sea of jumps. Come test your mettle on the whalebacks and rails.

If terrain parks aren’t your thing. That’s not a problem. There are over 7,300 acres of skiable terrain at Park City Mountain where you can find moguls, powder, and trees. If you catch first chair in the morning and stay until it all shuts down, you wouldn’t have to ski the same run twice. The variety is limitless, for beginners and advanced riders. Park City is the place to be.
