Park City Ski Guides

Beginner

Though only 8% of the resort, given the sheer size, this is plenty of Beginner terrain to explore. From the Park City Base, head to the First Time and Pay Days Lifts. From Canyons Village, take the Red Pine Gondola to the High Meadow Lift. Check out High Meadows Family Fun Zone - new for the 2018-19 season. The longest run, Home Run offers 3.5 miles of Green.

Intermediate

Excellent with just over 40% designated Blue. Enjoy plenty of super wide, groomed runs with gentle pitches. Peak 5 is paradise for Intermediates with access to longer runs finishing at Tombstone. Snow Meadow off of DreamScape offers soft snow at a gentle pitch. King Con has tons of Intermediate offerings. Looking to push it? Watch for Signature Runs - Blacks that have been groomed and are more intermediate friendly.

Advanced

More than half of Park City’s terrain is for Experts, split evenly between single and double Black Diamonds. Steep, deep and rife with chutes and trees, there is plenty to challenge (despite not being as steep, deep, or long as the Cottonwood Canyon neighbors). While Advanced terrain is spread throughout, the most concentrated areas are McConkey's and Jupiter Bowl on the Park City side and Ninety-Nine 90 on the Canyons side. 

Skiers and snowboarders of different ablities may need to split and plan to meet for breaks and meals. The highest peaks are Expert only and the lower peaks have limited Advanced terrain.

On Mountain Dining Recommendations

Park City has 8 on mountain dining locations. For fine dining, head to the newly transformed Mid-Mountain Lodge. Red Pine Lodge is a cafeteria style spot at the top of the Red Pine Gondola, good for a quick lunch or drink. Our top picks for a tasty meal at a convenient location are here:

Mid-Mountain Lodge

Newly revamped, this former miner's boarding house has become THE place to eat on mountain. Grain bowls, rotisserie and poke bowls are just some of the elevated options. There is also a ski-in ski-out cocktail bar. The deck is dazzling on a blue sky day, complete with fire pits and sheepskin benches. Perfect after a morning in McConkey's Bowl and easily accessible from Summit Peak.  

Miner's Camp

Mostly a location play. Ideal to relax and re-fuel after a full morning on the Park City side. Easily accessible from McConkeys and the Juptier Bowl and convenient from cruising the intermediate terrain of King Con. Offers traditional ski fare - burgers, pizza and chicken nuggets. Try to get here early or late as the convenient location brings the crowds. 

Cloud Dine

Our top pick, hands down. Though on a quick glance, the menu resembles that of an average ski resort, all of the food is made to order and elevated to a level you wouldn't expect here. Located at the top of DreamCatcher and DreamScape, its easy to access from the Park City or Canyons Base. Expanded for the 2018-19, there is more room to enjoy heaping salads, deli sandwiches, pizzas and the views.  

Tombstone Grill

This fun spot brings authentic barbeque slopeside. "Beach" style seating outside is great for people watching on a sunny day, but don't worry, they have plenty of indoor seating for days when you need to warm up. At the bottom of the Tombstone Express, come here after exploring the steep and deep terrain of Ninety-Nine 90, Peak 5 and the trees under Tombstone Express.
