Park City Mountain Resort, which lies just minutes from your doorstep at Victory Ranch, is the largest ski resort in North America. Home to over 300 ski trails, the mountain is an expansive paradise for both skiers and snowboarders alike. Yet, with so many runs to choose from, it’s often difficult to plan a perfect day on the slopes. With that being said, we’ve curated an insider’s guide to Park City’s top trails for all levels to make your next trip to the summit both seamless and memorable.
And, after a full day of shredding the slopes, you can head over to 875 Main, kick off your boots and sit back with some hot cocoa or a hot toddy—the perfect way to cap a peerless Park City day.
Taking its place amongst the mountain’s best green runs, Home Run get its name from it’s 3.5 mile stretch to the top of the Bonanza lift and all the way to the base—making it one of the longest green runs in Utah. Home Run is easy to navigate and not too complex, making it ideal for beginners. Another perk is the fact that it offers a number of views of Park City Mountain. Just because you’re new to the runs doesn’t mean you have compromise on the exceptional views.
The Claim Jumper Trail is located in the Silverload/Motherload area. It’s a wide and groomed trail, so you can ensure a comfortable ride as you learn and get comfortable with the slopes. This trail is a favorite for families because it lets off to Bonanza where you can ski down to the base with ease.
More seasoned skiers will take to the Georgeanna run. It’s accessible from McConkey’s lift and offers breathtaking views of Mt. Timpanogos, the town of Park City and the Uinta Mountain Range. This pleasant but moderate run goes along the edge of the resort property line, giving you a chance to have one foot in Park City and the other in Deer Valley. You can add a challenge to this run by opting to take the steep finish of Tycoon or veer left when you arrive at the Y intersection. No matter what you choose, this run doesn’t disappoint.
King Con Run
Nearly 50 percent of the mountain is classified as intermediate friendly, and King Con Run proves to be a favored run time and time again. Some have described this as the center of your Park City Mountain Resort trip. Offering 14 different blue and double-blue trails, this run does not disappoint. You can plan to spend your entire day here exploring and never end up on the same run twice. It’s wide open, groomed, slightly challenging and loaded with opportunity to enhance your skills and have some real fun.
This run is a favorite for many moderate skiers because of the access it provides and the opportunities for exploration. It’s near Park City’s Old Town, making a quick stop for lunch or aprés-ski easy to achieve. Because of its proximity to the Old Town, you’ll enjoy views of the town, colorful buildings and the Uinta Mountain Range as you make your way through.
The mountain’s most concentrated area of advanced runs can be found on Juniper Peak and Juniper Bowl, both of which can be accessed from the Town Lift, Main Base or Murdock Peak. Explore the glades amongst A Chute, Funnel Cloud, Condor Woods and more. And, if you’re feeling super adventurous, head over to McConkey Express to reach the famed McConkey Bowl, named after professional skier and base jumper Shane McConkey—the mountain’s most legendary spot.
