Park City Mountain Resort Overview
Park City Mountain Resort
The Park City area, is home to a natural playground of over 350 miles of multi-use trails. The summer trail season typically begins in May and runs through October. Trails range in elevation from roughly 7,000 feet to 10,000 feet with three lifts providing access to this vast network of amazing trails - creating opportunities for epic backcountry exploration.
Three chairlifts will run through the summer, serving more than 70 miles of hiking and biking trails across the resort’s terrain. PayDay and Crescent Lifts will carry riders from the resort’s base area, while Town Lift will provide access to the mountain directly from the lodging, dining and shopping of Park City’s Historic Main Street.
This trail system offers non-motorized recreational access for hikers, mountain bikers and equestrian users of all ability levels. It also provides a spectacular venue for nationally recognized events such as the Mid-Mountain Marathon and the Park City Point To Point mountain bike race.
Park City, Utah was recently named International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) the world’s first Gold Level Ride Center. This was a community-wide effort because IMBA considered such wide ranging criteria such as the number of miles, quality of the trails, quality of rooms and restaurants, bike shops, trailhead facilities, bike parks, brew pubs, and even cooperation between government, businesses, and land owners in making this a great place to ride.
The resort’s three lifts will open for the season on the following dates:
PayDay Lift – May 23
Town Lift – June 6
Crescent Lift – June 21
PayDay Lift will provide uphill bike access until Crescent Lift opens June 21, at which point bike access will move from PayDay to Crescent. Town Lift will carry bikes all summer.
Park City Mountain resort will run lifts an hour later than last summer, and the resort will remain open weekdays during the late season from 1pm to 6pm, Sunday through Friday, in Sept & Oct. Holiday hours are extened to 10am to 9pm as well.
