Park City Mountain Opening Day!!!

2016-2017 Opening Day Announcement


We announced today that our opening day, originally planned for Friday, November 18, will be rescheduled to Saturday, November 26. “Park City Mountain is dedicated to providing our guests the best early-season ski and ride experience,” said Park City Mountain’s chief operating officer, Bill Rock. “While unseasonably warm weather has not made it possible for recent snowmaking operations, our team is ready to fire up the snow guns at every opportunity as weather gets cooler. We look forward to opening as soon as we feel we can provide our guests with good quality snow conditions.”

According to Open Snow forecaster Evan Thayer, the forecast looks to shift in favor of skiers and snowboarders, including a cold storm later this week that leaves us with “decent accumulations possible in the mountains”. He adds, “We finally have a long-range outlook that features good news. Additional storms are possible through the end of the month.”

“It’s important to remember that during the 2008-09 season, Park City Mountain rescheduled opening day to after Thanksgiving and ended up with 444 inches at the Jupiter snow stake. The average at that stake is 357 inches,” Rock added.

Sunday, Aug 07

  • Total Distance
    78 Miles
  • Elevation Gain
    7,883 Ft
  • Start 12:15 PM
  • Estimated Finish 3:30 PM
  • Start Address: 250 Main St, Park City

Stage Overview:

Just say “Empire Pass” to a veteran of the Tour of Utah—then watch their face twist to an expression of excruciating anguish. Few climbs in the world have a reputation similar to Empire Pass. Topping out at over 9000ft, with rough pavement, average grades of 10% and pitches reaching over 20%, Empire Pass is quite simply the toughest climb raced in the United States. But this stage isn’t won on the summit. The winner needs a phenomenal ascent up Empire that’s followed by an equally brave descent down through the technically challenging Deer Valley Resort and into Park City. New this year will be a quick tour through downtown Park City, where our stage winner will need to save a little something special for the stage’s finish line; now positioned—after one last grinding climb—at the top of Main Street.

Top 4 Things to do in Park City!!!

While Park City is known for its world-class skiing and heavy winter snowfall, the charming Utah town also makes for a great summer destination. With the lush, green mountains as your backdrop, touring the city in warm weather is quite the experience. The area’s three expansive winter resorts transform into a verdant paradise with tons of unique attractions. You won’t be missing the powder when you’re screaming down a zip line at 55 miles per hour! Visitors who prefer a slower pace can catch a hot air balloon ride over the Wasatch Mountain Range.

From your Innkeepers from Old Town Guest House, Park City’s only B&B, here are our favorite four things to do in during summer in Park City!!  Bonus!!  You can walk to all of them from Old Town Guest House.

1.  Take a Joyride on Utah’s Only Alpine Coaster

In 1963, Park City Mountain Resort (then known as Treasure Mountain) was the first ski resort to open in the area. PCMR, which famously hosted several events during the 2002 Winter Olympics, also happens to be home to Utah’s only Alpine coaster. Climb aboard one of the toboggan-style cars and admire the stunning Wasatch mountain scenery as an automated lift pulls you up the track. Once you reach the top, the coaster takes you down nearly 4,000 feet of exhilarating curves. You don’t need to be a speed demon to enjoy this ride — each car is equipped with a hand-brake allowing you to regulate your own speed. The Alpine Coaster is accessible from the PCMR’s main trail area, making it a memorable finish to a long day of mountaineering.

2.  Deer Valley’s Lift-Served Mountain Biking Trails

Every summer, mountain-bikers from around the world flock to the Deer Valley resort in order to experience its world-class trails. Deer Valley has nearly 70 miles of singletrack, allowing you to spend your day riding through a seemingly endless montage of panoramic views and Heidi-esque Alpine scenery. The cherry on top? All of the biking trails are accessible by chairlift. If you’re in the mood to venture further afield, many of their trails connect with the Park City network of singletrack, providing access to over 400 miles of terrain. Deer Valley also offers a line of full-suspension, high-quality mountain bikes for rent. If you are wary about setting out on your own, you can always book one of their guided biking tours.

3. View the Canyons Resort From Above

The largest ski and snowboard resort in Utah, Canyons Resort has plenty to keep you occupied come summer. Thrill seekers won’t want to miss the pulse-quickening Lookout Zip Tour. The longest zip line in the state, it flies you 2,111 feet across a deep gorge at speeds of up to 55 mph. Although not for the faint of heart, it’s an unforgettable way to take in the resort’s 4,000-acres of terrain and dramatic mountain views. The uninitiated may want to begin with the shorter Red Pine Tour, which takes you on an 800-foot long tree top ride over a steep canyon at speeds of “only” 35 mph. If you’re feeling ambitious, opt for the deluxe package, which buys you two rides on each zip tour.

4.  Park City Museum

The Park City Museum is a must-see for anyone interested in the town’s history.
Located on Main Street in the historic City Hall building, the museum contains over
5,400 square feet of exhibits. City Hall has housed diverse government offices over the
years, including the old Utah Territorial Prison (don’t miss visiting the original jail cells in
the basement). Dedicated to illustrating Park City’s transition from 19th-century silver
mining town to chic ski resort, the museum’s exhibits cover everything from worker
conditions to immigration. Standout displays include a two-story model of the Ontario
Mine in the 1800s and a re-created Kimball Stagecoach car.

Ski Magazing Loves Park City Mountain Resort and Old Town Guest House

There’s a lot of people here who devote their days to making your time on our mountain as memorable as possible. Our day is made when we see someone in Kids Signature link their first turns, a family laughing over hot chocolate at one of our on-mountain restaurants, or someone hollering with enthusiasm on a run through the trees. But getting recognition from the industry’s biggest ski and snowboard publications is pretty cool too – so you’ll pardon us if we brag on SKI Magazine naming us one of their Top 5 Resorts in North America once again. But there’s more where that came from…


In a survey this summer, SKI’s readers evaluated every resort in North America across a variety of categories – and turns out we did pretty well. Our recognition included:
“North America’s #1 Most Accessible Resort” “North America’s #1 Resort for Off-Hill Activities” “North America’s Best Terrain Parks” “North America’s #2 Resort for Family Programming” “North America’s #5 Overall Resort”

Thank you to all of you who voted for us in SKI’s survey – we look forward to seeing you again soon. If you haven’t been back to see us in a while, we hope you come back soon and see what all the buzz is about!
