{alt_gen}

Hoping to hit the slopes during your Park City vacation? Knowing which runs to take can be half the battle, so we have mapped out our top nine runs, ratings from beginner to expert. No matter what your skill level or whether you like to ski or snowboard, there is a run just right for you!

Beginner

  • Homerun
    • Take the Silverlode Express up to one of the longest runs on the mountain, Homerun. The route starts mid-mountain near the Summit House Restaurant and heads down for 3.5 miles to downtown Park City. This perfect beginner trail with no fuss.
  • Claim Jumper
    • Hop on the Silverlode Express again and head down the rolling hills of Claim Jumper. This well-groomed run lets you cruise down the mountain with minimal effort. Because this is a slow zone the entire way, it is the ideal run for beginners.
  • Drift Trail
    • Looking to advance to the blue runs? This ridge run offers the beginner an opportunity to gain more confidence at speed and work on techniques needed to move onto the next level.

Intermediate

  • Quit’n Time
    • Don’t quit now! Test your skills on this intermediate run. Located just off PayDay ski run, accessed from the PayDay lift or Town lift, this run offers the best of both worlds, with views of the town as well as the Uinta Mountain Range in the distance. Quit’n Time is the perfect run to check out during lunch time or at the end of your day due to its proximity to Park City’s Old Town district.
  • Georgeanna
    • Accessible via McConkey’s lift, the Georgeanna run offers both beautiful views and a fun course for those wanting to challenge themselves. With expansive views of Mt. Timpangos, Herber Valley, and the Uinta Mountain Range on the other side, you will need to make sure and keep your eye on the trail.  And if you are up for even more of a challenge, complete the run by taking Tycoon to the bottom to finish off your day.
  • The Canyons  
    • Canyons is a large ski area with over 4,000 acres of navigable terrain spread across nine peaks. The steep groomers and several well gladed areas, make this area idyllic for intermediate even expert level powder seekers!Probably one of the best beginning points for intermediate skiers and snowboarders alike, Canyons Village is the closest base as you enter Park City. Because of its proximity, it is the perfect spot to enjoy a brew, food, and live music after hitting the slopes all day. Also, skiers and boarders can catch a ride on the Orange Bubble Express, the country’s first bubbled and heated chairlift.

Advanced

  • 3 Kings Terrain Park  
    • For those wanting to hit the terrain park, 3 Kings is the best park to push yourself to the next level. Where locals and tourists alike come to flaunt their in-air skills and where professionals come to refine their craft. If you aren’t a terrain park frequent flyer then this might not be the spot for you. This park brings perfectly groomed runs, expertly placed landings and a million chances to catch some air!  
  • 6 Bells at Jupiter Bowl
    • For those powder seekers, head out to Jupiter Bowl. While you can capitalize on the elevated views from the top of the mountain, the runs in this bowl offer a level of difficulty unlike any other. On the front facing side, adventure seekers will find narrow chutes that are easily picked out, including the most stunning, 6 Bells. So, have fun and enjoy Park City skiing at its finest!
  • Fool’s Gold  
    • Advance your skills on this well-known mogul run. Fool’s Gold offers decent bumps for those who are fairly comfortable with moguls. For those wanting a mixture of both moguls and powder, head to the left of the trail and set tracks in the soft snow amongst the trees of Motherlode Meadows.
