2024 Park City Ski Season Favorites & Local Updates

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

We are in the midst of another remarkable winter here in Park City and the Wasatch Back. The weather has been great – regular storm cycles mixed with sunny bluebird days. In other words, the conditions have been ideal for getting out on the slopes at our resorts.
 
We have endless options for enjoying all the snow, with two world-class ski resorts right here in Park City. With so much skiable area to choose from, we thought it would be helpful to reach out to our local agents here at Keller Williams Park City to get the inside scoop on their favorite lifts, runs, and dining options at our resorts.
 

Hope you enjoy these “Park City Piste Picks." Look forward to seeing you on the slopes soon!

It keeps coming!  

Once again, the latest series of storms that passed through Utah provided lots of fresh snow. Our statewide snowpack is in great shape, which will mean plenty of skiing into spring and great conditions on our rivers and reservoirs this coming summer!

FAVORITE REASONS
to SKI AT EACH RESORT


Has Everything  |  Park City Resort 
Park City Resort combines a huge variety of terrain and an assortment of slopes, two base villages, and direct ski access to Old Town Park City. It's the perfect place for families and snow enthusiasts of all levels and all disciplines.

Fewer Crowds + Luxe Services 
Deer Valley Resort 
Loved for its crowd-free, skiing-only, perfectly groomed runs, Deer Valley Resort offers top-notch services that are on par with the best in the world. More is to come in the next few years, with the addition of the Mayflower terrain and base village.

BEST GROOMED RUNS

There is plenty to choose from when it comes to high-quality groomed runs at our local resorts. According to Ski Magazine's rankings, Deer Valley offers the best grooming in North America year in and year out.

Nabob + Steins Way   
Deer Valley Resort 
Deer Valley Resort's groomed runs are a cut above the rest, and Nabob and Stein's Way are two of the frequently mentioned favorites. Nabob offers a consistently smooth ride with just the right amount of pitch to keep things interesting. Stein's Way offers long, sweeping turns through stunning scenery, giving you a run that is truly worthy of its namesake.


King Con + Boa  |  Park City Resort
King Con is a short but sweet run that offers lots of room for carving, suitable for both experienced skiers as well as those who are working on leveling up their skill set. For those looking for a longer run, Boa is wide and mellow, winding along the northern end of the resort.

TOP OFF-PISTE AREAS

Jupiter Peak  |  Park City Resort
No surprise here - the glades, chutes, and bowls surrounding Jupiter Peak were voted as the place to be for those seeking powdery, off-trail turns. West Face and Scott's are two favorites in this area. Runner-up votes went to tree skiing in the areas around Thaynes and the Colony.

Mayflower Bowl  |  Deer Valley 
Mayflower Bowl was the top off-piste pick at Deer Valley Resort, celebrated for its powder-filled chutes. Additional votes also went to Ontario Bowl, an area that is hiked to and holds good powder for longer than other areas at the resort.

FAVORITE LIFTS

Super Condor + Motherlode
Park City Resort
Motherlode and Super Condor lifts are located in opposite areas of Park City Resort, but they received top votes for what they have in common; they are both good spots to get away from the lift lines, providing opportunities to make laps without wait times.

Sultan  |  Deer Valley Resort
Sultan lift takes the crown for its access to a variety of long, steep groomers that both intermediates and experts can enjoy. Honorable mentions go to Sterling for its top-notch groomers, Mayflower for its quieter slopes, and the Wasatch High Speed lift for quick access to a diverse range of terrain.

BEST BEGINNER RUNS

Claim Jumper + First Time 
Park City Resort
With its gentle gradient and convenient lift access, First Time is ideal for brand-new skiers and snowboarders. However, once a beginner has mastered basic skills, they will appreciate the long, less-crowded terrain of Claim Jumper. It's the perfect run for beginners and intermediates to hone their skills.


Success  |  Deer Valley Resort
Success is a clear favorite for beginners at Deer Valley, noted for its excellent sun exposure and soft snow conditions that are ideal for those just starting out.

Food & Drinks

TOP PRE-GAME STOPS

Legacy Lodge  |  Park City Resort
Legacy Lodge at Park City Resort is a classic spot for a pre-ski bite, offering a quick service dining experience. The Legacy Café, located within the lodge, provides a range of breakfast options with a delicious breakfast buffet and a made-to-order omelet station.

BEST SLOPESIDE EATS

This award-winning gastropub sets itself apart with more than 50 beers from around the world, including 20 on tap, and a range of innovative handspun milkshakes.

Stein Eriksen Buffet  |  Deer Valley Resort
At Deer Valley's Glitretind Restaurant, the Stein Eriksen buffet is a standout. It boasts a gourmet spread that spans from wild game chili to an indulgent dessert table, all savored amidst the alpine elegance of this ski-in ski-out venue; perfect for a lavish midday retreat from the slopes.
FAVORITE APRÈS SKI
