ELEVATED ADVENTURES: PARK CITY MOUNTAIN AND GMC WELCOME GUESTS

SHARE:

It may have been built on the grounds of silver mines, but Park City Mountain has proved to be golden for those seeking premium vacation adventures. One of Vail Resorts’ prized properties, Park City Mountain pays homage to its namesake town’s mining history while maintaining a forward-thinking vision with its variety of exciting features and attractions.

It is the largest ski resort in the country at 7,300-plus acres, and represents the joining of two ski resorts, which now form the base villages. Only 35 miles from Salt Lake City, Park City Mountain is known for its accessibility to and from the airport as well as within the resort itself.

As the exclusive vehicle partner of Vail Resorts, GMC maintains a strong presence at its 13 premium resort properties throughout North America, including several in Vail, Breckenridge and Keystone, Colorado, and, of course, Park City Mountain.

Depending on the location, the partnership includes hospitality shuttle programs, vehicle demonstrations and support of various events. In Park City Mountain, GMC provides two Yukon XL Denali models to help transport visitors throughout this expansive and accommodating property in premium style.

TALE OF TWO VILLAGES

When Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons Resort combined to form Park City Mountain, it brought together the best of all worlds in terms of winter activities. The resort boasts 348 ski runs, multiple express lifts and the Quicksilver Gondola, which connects the two base villages.

Park City Mountain Village retains some of the mining town feel, with remnants of that time still present — including water towers, ore bins and old roads. It also hosts a number of open courses, a wealth of aspen trees, bowl skiing and Jupiter Peak, the highest point on the resort at some 10,000 feet above sea level.

Canyons Village, as its name might suggest, contains more of the mountains’ pockets, along with longer and narrower runs. When skiing, visitors can ride the Orange Bubble Express, a heated lift — with a pull-down cover — that can reach up to 57 degrees Fahrenheit. Canyons Village also features an outdoor Village Stage and hosts free concerts throughout both the summer and winter months.

PERFECT POWDER

It’s snow business, obviously, that drives Park City Mountain. Skiers can take a peak-to-peak guided tour of the resort with local guides showcasing all the treasures on-site. Snowboarders can make use of the eight available terrain parks — addressing different skill levels — as well as a half-pipe and a mini-pipe.

Every winter, the 16-day SnowFest Celebration revels in the wet and white stuff. Highlights include the Torchlight Parade, in which some 100 instructors glide downhill holding flares, Santa’s arrival into Park City via the resort’s celebrated Town Lift (which also can accommodate skiers looking to do a little shopping), and New Year’s Eve fireworks.

The resort has also put an emphasis on education with the introduction of High Meadow Park. This learning area for beginners and children features gentle slopes and additional snowmaking that has created ideal surfaces for getting a feel for the terrain. Families will be transported on a new high-speed, detachable four-passenger lift.

Park City Mountain is renowned for the gold standard quality of its snow. Part of the reason is the atmospheric conditions of the Wasatch Mountain Range, but credit must also be given for its special attention to detail. In fact, the resort grooms around 120 runs a night, focusing on meticulous, even lines.

MORE THAN SKIING

The resort also offers sleigh rides and a jaunt on the Alpine Coaster, which takes you to the height of the Wasatch Range scenery before hurtling you down nearly 4,000 feet of curves, bends and loops.

The Spring Grüv festival is Park City Mountain’s answer to your typical Spring Break destinations, with a variety of concerts and activities as well as a pond-skimming competition that finds accomplished skiers attempting to traverse a watery surface.

The summer brings its own schedule of activities: zip lines for all ages, ropes courses, mountain biking (with lift service) and 400 miles of hiking and biking trails. The Park City Mountain Adventure Park features the aforementioned roller coaster as well as alpine slides with controlled-speed carts. Kids can also simulate mining for gems just like the ancestors of Park City.

DINING CHOICES

In terms of culinary delights, Park City Mountain has something to match your tastes. There are 16 restaurants on-mountain, each with its own executive chef and unique menu featuring homemade sauces and pickling along with personally smoked meats.

Like GMC, Vail Resorts offers its customers a Professional Grade experience through its exceptional accommodations. For more information on Vail Resorts and its individual properties, visit snow.com.

The Grand Summit Hotel — now a RockResort — recently underwent a $15 million upgrade, including a complete overhaul of the 212 suites and a full remodel of the on-site spa.
