Park City

+ Great family programs. Diverse terrain.
- Confusing mountain layout.

In this age of modern resorts, luxe comforts, though welcomed by many, can kill authenticity. PCMR has managed to strike the balance between modern and homey. The historic town at the base is connected by a ski bridge to the Town Lift. Within minutes, you’re delivered to a state-of-the-art six-pack accessing 3,300 acres of high-speed groomers and aspen-dappled back bowls. In fact, PCMR has spent more than $10 million in the last two years upgrading lifts, terrain parks and snowmaking without bleaching out the local color. Ripping through ancient glades in Thaynes Canyon or dropping into powdery steeps in Jupiter Bowl, you’ll speed by vestiges of the area’s mining past. This blend of old and new has a comforting appeal. As a reader sums up, “great vibe on the mountain and a fabulous town.” —Carrie Sheinberg

Family Activity » Sorry, hardcore ski parents, but the one thing your children will talk about after your vacation is the alpine coaster.

Best Family Trail » Crews groom a different Signature Run daily, allowing young skiers to earn bragging rights—and increased confidence—by conquering new terrain.
