Here are some local tips to ski or ride Park City Mountain Resort
We reported the early opening of the Park City Mountain Resort (PCMR) in November. Now it’s January and the snowpack continues to build! Snow flurries are flying as we write this. If you want to enjoy the PCMR slopes, here are a few things you should know.
As explained in a recent blog, Park City Mountain Resort offers 330+ ski and snow board trails crossing 7300 acres accessible from the Park City Old Town lift to Canyons Village. The Quick Silver Gondola connects the valleys with stunning views. Epic passes are accepted at the Vail resort property.
Plan ahead before you ski or ride. Purchasing an Epic pass could be advantageous if you wanted to visit reciprocal resorts, so consider ordering a pass the spring or fall before you ski. There are a few Epic Pass options so be sure to review the one that fits your needs. Local’s tip: The Epic pass saves 20% on food and beverages so be sure to show your pass when ordering food!
Lift tickets for children, adults and seniors range from $130-$200 depending on the day, but can be higher during holidays. Local’s tip: purchase multi-day tickets to access the slopes more quickly.
The biggest change this year is parking instructions. There are two bases at PCMR – the Mountain Village and Canyons Village.
The Mountain Village parking area is now accessed through a required paid system for a fee of $25 a day. Reservations can be purchased online. Local’s tip: Carpools with four or more passengers park for free. Parking is free and no reservation is required after 1:00 pm.
The Canyons Village parking lot is free, as is parking at the Park City High School (open weekends and holidays). Local’s tip: The Canyons Village parking lot fills up early, especially on Saturdays.
To access the Canyons trails from the parking lot, ride the free Cabriole to the mountain base where there are retail shops, rentals, and dining options. On the way up the Cabriole, enjoy the deer, moose and snowball sculptures. Local’s tip: springtime is festive at the base! Enjoy live bands and beverages around the fire pits.
From the Canyons Village base, ride the gondola to the Red Pine area or take the Orange Bubble lift to the northern side of the mountain. Local’s tip: look for moose and deer amongst the snow laden pine trees and aspens.
Make your way over to The Colony runs in heart of PCMR. The homes are beautiful and spread out on large lots. Local’s tip: Cloud Dine is a nice spot for a bite to eat surrounded by great views. Check out the red Emeco 111 Navy Chairs – lightweight and comfortable, each one is made in the USA from no less than 111 plastic bottles that were recycled.

Connect to the south side of PCMR via the Quicksilver Gondola – or cross from the Mountain Village to the northern Canyons side. At the base of the Quicksilver Gondola is Miner’s Camp Lodge. Local’s tip: If you want make your way all the way up to the southern edge of PCMR, head for McConkey’s Express.
If you are staying in historic Park City, the easiest way to access the mountain is via the Town Lift. From there, the numerous trails, lifts and lodges are all at your ski tips!
