It's the largest ski area in the United States
Vail Resorts purchased Park City Mountain Resort in 2014 and made massive improvements to the mountain, including connecting it with neighbouring Canyons Resort via gondola to create the largest ski area in the United States. Part of the Epic Pass, there are 250 kilometres of slopes, eight mountain peaks, seven terrain parks and 14 bowls. More than half of the 300+ trails are suitable for an intermediate level, making the resort exceptionally family friendly. Also in Park City is the more subdued Deer Valley Resort which is exclusively for skiers, with a ban on snowboarding.
This year, mirroring the reopening of other public spaces, Vail Resorts has announced that all guests will be required to wear face coverings to get on the mountain and within resort operations, including in lift lines and riding in lifts and gondolas. Lift tickets will be limited to prioritise pass holders and mountain access will be managed via reservation system to ensure guests have the space they need. Like many other ski resorts, Park City is carefully planning for this upcoming ski season, making sure travellers are prepared and understand the health and safety protocols that are in place to protect themselves and the mountain communities they're visiting.
