25 Top Spots: #17 Park city, UT

25 Top Spots: #17 Park city, UT

Although it packs a whopping 3,300 acres, Park City doesn't scream "big mountain" from the base. You see a few beginner runs, well-formed bumps on Shaft, and a steep race trail (CB's, home of the Olympic GS). But ride the quads up and the real terrain unfolds in ridges, bowls, and glades before you: Jupiter Peak, Scott's Bowl, Puma Bowl, McConkey's Bowl, Thaynes. For après, the hip, gentrified mining town at the base is a party oasis in conservative Utah.

The Vitals

Top elevation: 10,000 feet
Vertical drop: 3,100 feet
snowfall: 290 inches (7,140')
Skiable Acres: 3,300
Phone: 800-222-7275
Web: parkcitymountain.com

Adrenaline:
Hike 15 minutes from the top of Jupiter chair, then plunge down the face of Jupiter Bowl. Tougher chutes are skier's left of the main drop.

Accumulation:
Praise the Utah desert, which brings the moisture content down to dust-mote level.

Après:
O'Shucks, with crack-your-own nuts and beer, is the local's place. HarryO's (a.k.a. Scary Hos) is the get-jiggy dance spot. Mother Urban's is underground and underappreciated.
