This tour will give you a good perspective of the size of Park City Mountain Resort and how easy it is to travel from one side to the other. You will spend some time in the King Con Mountainzone, which has a number of intermediate runs that are either groomed or left to set up with moderate bumps. This King Con side of the Resort is a great place to spend the afternoon. The sun softens up the snow so you can really dig in. The grooming portion of this tour will be highlighted by the opportunity to experience the Signature Runs. The Resort has designated 15 mostly black diamond runs as our Signature Runs. These runs are steeper than the usual groomers, and allow our guests to push their limits and conquer more of the mountain. The views from the Summit House deck and the top of McConkey's Lift will remind you of why you took up this wonderful winter sport.
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.
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.
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 McConkey’s/Pioneer Mountainzone is served via the McConkey's lift and the Pioneer lift. In addition, this Mountainzone offers a variety of hikes that are reached from McConkey's lift, Jupiter lift and Pioneer lift.
The terrain options in the McConkey’s/Pioneer Mountainzone range from:
- The sunny pitches off the runs from Hawkeye run to Sampson run.
- The chutes off of Jupiter Peak.
- The bowl skiing in Puma Bowl, Blue Slip and McConkey's.
- The evergreen glades of the Black Forest run and the aspen glades of 10th Mountain run.
- The Signature Runs Sunrise run and Blue Slip run.
We recommend the Pioneer/McConkey’s Mountainzone for skiers and riders comfortable with Intermediate runs and above, although an Easier run (Homerun run) is accessible off Pioneer Lift.
The easterly facing runs off of Pioneer Lift are best experienced in the morning, once the sun has slightly softened the snow, which can make for butter-like turns down Comstock run, Red Fox run and Hawkeye run.
The old miner’s boarding house that is now the Mid Mountain Restaurant restaurant is the perfect lunch stop, located towards the bottom of this Mountainzone on the Mid-Mountain run.
