Get ready to go "off-piste" in this tour which will lead you on everything but the groomers at Park City Mountain Resort. Along the way, be sure to look for beautiful views from the top of Scott's and McConkey's Bowls. Dive into the "Greatest Snow on Earth!" in this assortment of wide-open bowls and glades, while limbering up your knees cranking turns down our challenging mogul fields.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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:
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.
