At Park City Mountain Resort accident prevention and occupational safety are of primary importance. A variety of Resort policies and programs advance this goal. These procedures and policies are designed to protect the safety of our team and guests, and are not written or implemented lightly. Each is given close scrutiny for viability and necessity to provide the best care and protection available.
It is your responsibility to know the code, to hike or ride in a responsible manner and to report all incidents.
Mountain Biking and hiking offer a range of challenges and adventures. Riders and hikers can choose gentle scenic routes or challenging single track descents. Regardless of what type of terrain you select, remember there are elements of risk in mountain biking and hiking that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce, but not eliminate. Observe the code listed below and help create a great trail experience for everyone.
Vehicles may be encountered on any run at any time.
- Riders must be at least 42 inches tall to ride.
- Rides (single or combined) must not exceed 480 pounds.

FOR THE SAFETY OF THE RIDERS AND ALL OTHER PARK CITY MOUNTAIN RESORT GUESTS PLEASE NO:
When planning your hike or ride, be sure to pack plenty of water. Bike tools, replacement parts, sturdy shoes, sunscreen and a light, water-resistant jacket are recommended. Sunny skies can easily give way to afternoon showers or storms. Be aware there are no services on the mountain, i.e., water, bathrooms or phones. Consider carrying a cell phone and GPS device.
Please be safety conscious!
Get in shape. Biking and hiking are exciting, vigorous sports. Always make an honest assessment of your physical and riding abilities. The weather can change radically and rapidly, so plan to bring or buy sunglasses or eye protection, sun protection, a hat and clothing that makes it possible for you to dress in layers. Nights and early mornings are often cool or cold. Daytime temperatures can be into the 100s. Windy conditions may kick up unexpectedly at any time.
Layers of clothing are best. They can be added and removed in order to better regulate your body temperature.
Base Layers: Avoid cotton, it will wick your body heat away when wet. Consider long pants and long sleeved shirts for both sun protection and temperature changes.
Outer Layers: Water resistant and comfortable; biking gloves, glasses or goggles; sunscreen and lip balm are important to use at high altitude.
The elevation is between 7,000 feet above sea level at the base to 10,000 feet at the top of Jupiter Peak. If you are from lower elevations you may experience altitude sickness, usually within the first 48 hours of your arrival. Symptoms include headache, nausea, insomnia, and loss of appetite. The best prevention is acclimatization. Take it easy your first day here and increase fluid intake, decrease salt, alcohol and caffeine intake, and select high-carbohydrate, low-fat foods. Be aware that high elevation can also accentuate existing health problems. If you have a respiratory or vascular illness, consult your physician before your trip. You may ask for help from any Park City Mountain Resort team member if you find symptoms worsening or persisting.
