There is so much more to Park City than just skiing and snowboarding. Here, visitors find year-round resorts that cater to both summer and winter guests, in addition to winter-only resorts where skiers from around the world flock to the snowy slopes. Park City is conveniently located a mere 35 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport. For those looking to relax rather than ski, Park City offers a plethora of sophisticated activities such as hot air balloon tours and world-class spas.
Rated as the top ski resort in America, Deer Valley Resort features a five-star hotel and four mountains that can test any skier's ability. Empire Canyon, Flagstaff, Bald, and Bald Eagle Mountains include several fun runs across six snow-filled bowls. During the 2002 Winter Olympics, Deer Valley hosted the slalom, giant slalom, freestyle, and snowboard events, although the runs today draw mainly beginners to intermediate skiers. Snowboarding is no longer allowed here. The resort also hosts ski classes, lessons for kids, or one-on-one time with instructors.
