Tour Summary

In this tour we'll take you through Park City Mountain Resort's bowls and trees areas all filled with the "Greatest Snow on Earth!." As you ski or ride through the powder, remember to take a look up as you'll find fantastic views from the tops of Jupiter and McConkey's Lifts. This tour will take you down some of the best powder shots on our mountain and on our Signature Runs (groomed runs that aren't typically groomed due to their advanced nature), which turn into epic powder runs on a powder day since they offer a smoothly groomed base under all the fluffy powder. You will also be challenged in our top-ranked terrain parks with the jibs and jumps in the King's Crown and Three Kings Terrain Parks.

Tour Tips

Due to varying conditions, we recommend you use the Daily Groomed Runs Map as well as our official Mountain Guide in conjunction with this Planner.

Grooming  

Park City Mountain Resort grooms up to 50 runs every night. Pick up a copy of our Daily Groomed Runs Map from the Information Desk in the Legacy Lodge or from any Mountain Host to see what we’ve groomed in the past 24 hours.

Signature Runs  

Conquer more of the mountain with our Signature Runs. These are runs not typically groomed because of their advanced nature. Look for them on your trail map and on-mountain signage.

Look for the following scenic photo opportunities on this tour:  

• The top of the King Con Lift looking over Crescent Ridge towards the town of Park City.
• The top of McConkey’s Lift looking back into Guardsman Pass Area.

Dining  

We offer five different on-mountain dining options to keep you charged during your day on the mountain. The options range from burgers on the Summit House patio to the fresh pasta at the Legacy Lodge. For this tour we recommend stopping at the Snow Hut and enjoying a burger or brat on the deck.

Did you know?  

A Single Jack was a 2 pound hammer used by one miner to drive a hole into rock for placing dynamite. The Double Jack was a 5 pound hammer. One miner wielded the double jack with two hands, while a second miner held and turned the bit to produce the dynamite hole.

If you are feeling more confident try the following more difficult runs: Seldom Seen run, Creole run, Muckers run, Chance run and Heckler run.

Mountainzones Overview

Park City Mountain Resort offers the freedom to explore our unique mountain topography through seven distinct Mountainzones. Each Mountainzone presents a variety of terrain that allows nearly every ability level the opportunity to enjoy the area.

The seven Mountainzones are broken up by lifts that serve the area. They include the Mountainzones of the easily accessible PayDay/Town, challenging Crescent, centrally-located Silverlode/Bonanza, Intermediate nirvana King Con/Silver Star, More Difficult Thaynes/Motherlode, Expert only Jupiter and Majestic McConkey’s/Pioneer.

Discover one Mountainzone at a time, or find out how easy it is to navigate from one to another. To get information on all of our Mountainzones, please click here.

This Tour's Featured Mountainzone:
Jupiter Mountainzone

McConkey's/Pioneer Mountainzone

The Jupiter Mountainzone is served via the Jupiter lift. In addition, this Mountainzone offers a vast variety of hike-accessed terrain, including the backcountry style experience of Pinecone Ridge run.

The terrain options in the Jupiter Mountainzone range from:

  • The wide open meadows of the West Face.
  • The tight and steep of Portuguese Gap run, Indicator run and 6 Bells run.
  • The powder shots of Main, Rhino run, Scott's and Pinecone Upper.

We recommend the Jupiter Mountainzone for skiers and riders comfortable with Most Difficult runs and above as there is ‘no easier way down’ from the top of Jupiter Lift. This the only one of our seven Mountainzones that does not offer any regularly groomed runs - making the Jupiter Mountainzone a true off-piste adventure.

Check the board located next to the Jupiter Patrol Shack at the top of Jupiter lift, to see if Jupiter Peak and Pinecone Ridge run are open. These are areas that are typically opened a day or two after a storm and are havens for powder hounds.
