The Town of Park City
Nestled high in the Wasatch Mountains, the historic mining town of Park City is unlike any other ski town in the U.S. Home to three world class ski resorts, Canyons, Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort (PCMR), the town of Park City offers four season recreation as well as sophisticated dining and nightlife, all within a 32-mile drive from Salt Lake City International Airport. It’s no wonder the town of Park City was the virtual epicenter of the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games. Accessed by car, bus or shuttle on Interstate 80, the Park City-area ski resorts are the easiest to get to from downtown Salt Lake City, with Canyons being the closest drive time of any resort at just 35 minutes.
Home to everything from casual family-style eateries to award-winning fine dining establishments, the town of Park City is a gourmet mecca. Visit our Dining page for more information on what Canyons has to offer. See restaurant choices here!
Utah may have earned the reputation as a conservative and “dry” state, but Park City does its best to strike some balance with many bars, pubs and nightclubs. If you are looking for après ski, live music or a quiet table at a wine bar, the town of Park City is the place.
The town of Park City is a true four season resort town. In the winter, you’ll find world class skiing and snowboarding. You can also enjoy the thrill of speeding down the same bobsled run used in the 2002 Winter Olympics in an authentic competition bobsled.
