Park City Mountain Resort wants you to experience all that our mountain has to offer.
That's why we feature our color-coded Mountainzones trail map. Each Mountainzone™ features a variety of terrain so nearly every ability level can enjoy the area. Read about our seven unique Mountainzones below or view them on our Interactive Trail Map:
The PayDay/Town Mountainzone connects the mountain to Park City’s historic Main Street via the Quit ‘N Time and Creole runs and the Town lift. This Mountainzone offers the King’s Crown Terrain Park, the lighted PayDay run for night skiing/riding and the NASTAR course. Served via the PayDay Hi-Speed Six-Pack and Town lifts.
The Crescent Mountainzone is the gateway to the mountain, providing access to over 2,000 acres of skiing and riding terrain. This mountainzone offers very diverse terrain as it services our main beginner learning area and some of our premier Signature Runs®. Crescent Mountainzone also includes the Eagle Superpipe and 3 Kings Terrain Park, which is open for night skiing/riding. Served via Crescent Hi-Speed Quad, 3 Kings and First Time lifts.
The King Con Mountainzone provides the most intermediate terrain on the mountain, including the new Neff Land terrain park and Merrill Mini 13’ halfpipe. The immaculately groomed runs are great for carving perfect turns and the ungroomed terrain is ideal for learning to ski/ride the moguls. Served via the King Con Hi-Speed Quad, Eagle, Eaglet and Silver Star lifts
The Silverlode/Bonanza Mountainzone is perfect for all ability levels and provides access to a majority of the mountain from the Summit. Homerun, our longest run, begins in this zone and allows beginner skiers/riders access from the Summit to the Resort Base. Adventure Alleys, located through the trees near Claim Jumper and also off of Mel’s Alley, are perfect for kids; intermediates will like Assessment and Powder Keg; most advanced should check out our Signature Run Prospector. Little Kings terrain park has beginner park features for little and big jibbers. Served via the Silverlode and Bonanza Hi-Speed Six–Pack lifts.
The Thaynes/Motherlode Mountainzone is the most underutilized and has some of the best advanced terrain on the mountain. The Motherlode Meadows area provides pristine snow for advanced levels. The trees off of the upper portion of Jupiter Access provide fantastic tree skiing and riding. TNT, one of our Adventure Alleys and the longest of the five, winds through the trees. Served via the Thaynes and Motherlode lifts.
The McConkey’s/Pioneer Mountainzone provides some of the most spectacular views on the mountain. Featuring a variety of hikes from the tops of McConkey’s and Pioneer lifts it also offers off-trail and tree skiing and riding. For intermediate skiers/riders Georgeanna run is an ideal spot for taking scenic pictures. Plus, the Adventure Alley Powder Monkey, allows intermediates the chance to explore the trees. Served via the McConkey’s Hi-Speed Six–Pack and Pioneer lifts.
The Jupiter Mountainzone features a large variety of hike-accessed terrain, backcountry-style experiences, wide-open meadows, challenging steeps and big powder stashes. It’s the place to be after a big snowfall. Served via the Jupiter lift and is for expert-only skiers and snowboarders.
All summer I’ve been talking about exploring what happens after Shadow Lake, with fall in full swing, I decided it was now or never. After mapping together a group of trails that would give us several downhill thrills and only a few climbs, we drove to the top of Guardsman for a nine mile downhill, cross country ride.
Time to dig out the flip-flops, pull the cover off the grill and enjoy those lazy summer days. But if you think we're sitting back and putting our feet up during the dog days, think again. We open for summer on Friday, May 24 (just in time for Memorial Day Weekend) and we've got a couple new summer wrinkles in addition to our classic adventures.
