Park City Ski Resort Review
Park City is one of the few Utah towns established by non-mormons and is a commumity with an enviable portfolio of ski areas. divided into 7 Mountainzones™ with 50+ groomed runs and more 3,300 acres of skiable terrain.
Following remarks that it had 'lots of diamonds but not enough black ones', the resort changed its image by opening up tougher ski areas..
Many of the trails in the Mountain Resort echo the old mining days; Silver Cliff, The Hoist, Prospector and Shaft are a few.
Nearby Deer Valley has developed a reputation as one of America's most pampering ski resorts. Attendants help you unload your skis before you tackle some of the most meticuloulsy groomed slopes in the country.
