What It's Like
When most people think of Park City, they think of Park City Mountain Resort. Where the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Olympic Team comes to train, Park City Mountain has lots of powdery, challenging slopes (but there are plenty of different slopes for different levels). The mountain originally opened as Treasure Mountain in the 60s, but was renamed in 1996 and today boasts eight peaks, nine bowls, and 16 chairlifts, as well as a snowboard park. During the summer months, the mountain turns into an amusement park with lots of rides, and slopes turn into hiking and biking trails.
Park City's nightlife is centered around Park City Mountain -- you may even get to party with an Olympian! There are a range of bars and clubs, and the partying lasts 'til the wee hours of the morning. Main Street is home to some bars, as well as restaurants, shops, and historic buildings.
Where To Stay
