The downside

    We stayed at the Lodge at Mountain Village so right…

    News – 2017/18

    The Grand Summit hotel at the foot of the slopes at Canyons Village has had a $15 million renovation. It is now part of the RockResorts chain owned by Vail Resorts (which also owns the Park City ski area).

    Summary

    In 2015, Park City Mountain Resort was linked to next-door Canyons by a new gondola and new runs to form the USA’s biggest linked ski area, with 7,300 acres of terrain. But although it is bigger than Vail, its runs are nowhere near as interesting and varied. The ski area could easily be made even bigger by linking to neighbouring Deer Valley, which is separated from the Park City slopes only by a fence between two pistes, and by separate ownership. Any skier staying 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, less than an hour away by car.
