Our live, controllable PTZ (pan, tilt and zoom) cameras have been one of the most popular features on parkcitymountain.com for as long as I have been working here. Over, the past several years, we have moved cameras around to find the most interesting vantage points and more recently we have even added an HD Cam up at the top of Crescent Lift. Now we just turned on the newly upgraded Resort Plaza HD Cam with an updated HD cam interface that is also now available on the Crescent HD cam. Plus the existing standard definition Summit and 3 Kings Cams are both still providing fantastic live streaming images.
The new HD cam interface is quite intuitive, but in case you have any questions, here’s a quick run through on how to use it:
- Browse to either the new Resort Plaza HD cam or Crescent HD cam pages.
- Click on the “Click to Play Live Video” box in the center of the cam image.
- Check out the live video feed, or click “Control Camera” to steer the cam around.
- If there is nobody else controlling the cam, you will then seen controls allowing you to pan, tilt or zoom the camera, or select from one of many preset views, you can even click the “expand” button to make the viewer fill your entire screen.
- Be sure to move the cam to what you want to see quickly as we do have the cam control set to move the next person in line and you can see how long that might might in the timer section.

Count on two things when talking to ski town locals: they’ll remind you “there’re no friends on a powder day” and they’ll button up when you ask where their favorite powder stash is.
Park City Mountain Resort’s new Powder Club, however, breaks both of those rules: putting you in a fun group led by an instructor who shows you the best spots to hit on the mountain – all before the lifts are open to the public. No membership is required – just sign yourself up for a Powder Club session between 8-8:30 any morning after the Resort has received more than six inches of snow overnight. I tagged along with the Powder Club recently, after 13″ of snow fell the night before, and enjoyed by far my best ski day so far of the young season!
Powder Club grabs first tracks through 13 inches of brand new snow on Newport
The Powder Club jumps on PayDay lift promptly at 8:30 a.m. and gets around the mountain to enjoy first tracks before the lifts open to the public at 9. Whether you’re a seasoned powderhound just looking to be pointed in the right direction, a pow novice looking for some tips on turning in the deep stuff, or somewhere in between, this special 3-hour tour of the mountain is designed with you in mind.
Enjoying my reward for getting an early start with the Powder Club
There’s nothing like getting first tracks on a powder day and feeling like you have the whole mountain to yourself. But if you think I’m wrapping up this blog post by sharing my own favorite stash, you’ve got another thing coming. You’ll just have to get out with the Powder Club and discover your own.
Click HERE for Powder Club details, registration is in-person only at the Resort Services Office ticket windows in the Resort Plaza between 8-8:30 a.m. For the inside

Utah’s snowfall is legendary, and the Wasatch mountain’s 14 ski resorts draw powderhounds from across the globe. As told by Utah’s license plate marked with a skier and the slogan The Greatest Snow on Earth®, Utah is passionate about its skiing. Truly, snow is the epicenter of the Utah ski industry, responsible for endless smiles and high-fives after experiencing a Utah powder day. For those of you who dream in powder, Ski Utah presents to you this graphic that illustrates Utah’s consistent and abundant snow in a way that has never before been depicted. Did you know that Utah averages 18 blizzards each winter or that Utah’s 1,200 ski runs strung together would reach from Salt Lake to Vegas?
11 inches of new snow have fallen since Saturday morning, and we’ve been making additional storms around the mountain with our snowguns. Thanks to that great weather – and our talented crew of snowmakers, groomers and mountain patrol – we’re scheduled to open two more lifts, 11 more runs and another bowl tomorrow morning!
See the gameplan below.
Scheduled to open Wednesday:
Comstock Red Fox
Mid-Mountain Meadows Mid-Mountain run
Pioneer Blue Slip Bowl
Thaynes Lift Thaynes
Hoist Double Jack Keystone
Work around the mountain continues, with more terrain on track to open later this week. We’ll keep you updated!
