Best of the West; Park City, Utah

Posted by Greg Harrigan on Friday, October 19th, 2012 at 10:46am.

It is easy for locals to love Park City, and maybe we brag about our town a bit too much, but there are times when the accolades must be shouted from the mountain tops. Such as now....

Ski Magazine readers have just ranked the three resorts in Park City in the Top Ten in North America,

Recognizing what locals and part time residents have long known. That is, Park City is the best ski town in this country, and possibly the best town period.

Deer Valley Resort ranked #2, Park City Mountain Resort ranked #4, and Canyons ranked # 10

For snow sliders, this easy to reach mountain mecca offers nearly 400 trails on more than 9000 acres of terrain on three world class resorts with the 'greatest snow on earth'. This picturesque town offers over 100 bars and restaurants, and more activities, shopping, arts, and entertainment than most cities can offer.

In addition to all that Park City offers, we have the luxury of being less than an hour to 6 additional fantastic resorts, five of which were ranked in the top 30 in North America...

Snowbird ranked # 17, Brighton ranked #21, Solitude ranked #22, Alta at # 25 and Snowbasin at #30. 

Snowbasin could be a top ten resort if it had a village or bed base, but the drive there is always worth it if you like long powder filled runs on almost empty slopes. Powder Mountain is too funky to make the list, too old school I guess, but that place has its own magic and the cat skiing there is a must for powder hounds.

Believe what you hear, Park City is the most accessible ski town in North America from all over the world and has an embarassing wealth of choices when it comes to ripping the slopes or enjoying a family vacation, year round. Come visit soon!
