Poor trail map

The trail map posted all over the mountain and handed out to ticket holders really needs to be redrawn. They do not differenciate between groomed runs and those that are nothing but a mogul fields. It's a real hazard the intermediate skier looking for blue runs.

Operations needs improvement

Vail resorts invested a chunk of change to connect both mountains, but their lift operations get 2 of 5 stars. Seems like lifts stop frequently for lift maintenance issues and on the 4 and 6 high speed lifts, there are no lift monitors to "help" organize the chaos on busy days. Occasionally, one person is there, but does very little crowd control.

Lots of high speed boarders too, which makes it kind of dicey at times. Hopefully Vail can get it together and improve their operations.

VAIL SUCKS, I have a season pass, wanted to use 2 of my friends and family passes, the guy at the ticket office charged me 244 for 2 passes that the last time I checked should of been free. Also food was very cold, extremely dry and bland, extremely overpriced 45 dollars for 2 burgers and fries. I understand they are a business and need to make money, but this was ridiculous. I will not ever in the history of vail buy another season pass. Thanks for ruining our town, trying to trademark Park Citys name, and destroying any sense of community that we had in this town. Also thanks for forcing local businesses out of there homes, at the base of the mountain. Thanks vail for ruining the town I have loved for all of these years.

Love Park CiTY!

avoid park city ski area at all costs

Carson Omery

My family is from all over the country and we have been meeting in Park City for Christmas for 6 years now! I was so excited for all the wonderful fresh snow this year, but have been painfully let down each day. Yesterday I got to the gondola at the the canyons side at 0830 and waited 3 hours in the cold and the gondola never opened. Out of the entire resort area only 3 lifts were open. They day before that, I got stuck at the bottom of tombstone express for 57 min. There were so many people packed into the base area of tombstone that people were lining up the mountain on the runs. Today I I got stuck at the bottom of silverload because they shut down the QuickSilver gondola. All the people from the gondola lines had no choice but to cram into the already packed silverload lines.

This resort even on Christmas Eve is far over crowded with rookie skiers and should be avoided at all cost. If you are in the area and looking for fun on the mountain, your best bets are deer valley or Alta.

We receive lots of resort advice enquiries for people looking for the most ideal ski resort in the US, and I’d say that the most common recommendation I give them is to head to Park City Utah. Popular requests are from people looking for a resort close to a major airport, somewhere with ski-in ski-out lodging, awesome intermediate terrain, somewhere that’s reasonably snow sure, has great nightlife, and a place with things for the kids to do and the partner who doesn’t ski. Park City comes up trumps! Other than hard core experts, full-on powder hounds who are looking for a completely deserted resort, and ski bums on a shoestring budget, Park City pretty much suits everyone!! It has a lot to offer and our visit in 2015 confirmed this!

And Top Dog certainly enjoyed going bob sledding at the Utah Olympic Park - it's a must do!

See the overview of Park City Mountain Resort for our thoughts on the pros and cons of Park City, and also see the USA ski resorts ratings to see how it compares to other US ski resorts.

Definitely the worst of the bunch (we hit Brighton, Snowbird, and Solitude also). Also by far the easiest of the bunch. Blacks were the same as East Coast blacks.

Pretty underwhelming overall...EXCEPT...for the various natural halfpipes and sidewalls that go 15-20' on either side of runs. When you find those and build them into your runs, you can actually have a good time here!

Park City is exactly that, a city. This mountain gets crowds from all over the world as well as a huge number of beginners. The main runs are over crowded plus have huge ski school groups that are a hazard of and in themselves.

The terrain if you can get there is fun and exciting, but most the time it is roped off. Not saying that should stop you I've definitely ducked the ropes there a few times myself.

The place can be a mad house and the restaurants are expensive and good luck to you if you want a table inside one of those restaurants - they're just as crowded as the slopes are!

Great nightlife; not so much the skiing

Greg
22/10/2012
The nightlife here is good... It's as good as it gets for Utah. I looked forward to that every night.

The skiing is not as good. I find it does not receive the good snow that the canyon resorts get. The terrain is also not as challenging... I like to ski challenging terrain.

It is good for families, but also expect to pay quite a bit as well.

Pros: Nightlife is as good as it gets for Utah. Family oriented. Snow is still good - even if not as good as the canyons... It's much better than many other places around North America. Fantastic accommodations all around the resort.

Cons: The crowds are big, the prices are high, the terrain is pretty much groomed and easy terrain.

Best suited for: The resort is most suitable to families and couples. If you're looking for a skier's mountains this is not for you.

To be honest, I would not go back here, but again... I'm looking for challenging terrain, cheaper prices, smaller crowds. I do not have anyone but the "guys" coming with me, so I'm also looking for nightlife and do not mind a place that is unsuitable to families.
