Those of us who reside in Park City already know it is the best town to live in, but it’s nice to have Outside Magazine declare it to be so from among all other small towns across the United States. The September issue of Outside Magazine named Park City as the “Best Town in America.” Outside said, “Park City feels like a Colorado ski town dropped into Utah’s 12,000-foot Wasatch Range, with one significant difference. Unlike Telluride or Aspen, it has a major city, Salt Lake, and an international airport 30 minutes away.”

The article pointed out that Parkites (Park City residents) have easy access to three world-class ski areas, along with climbing, hiking, and camping in 500,000 acres of wilderness in the nearby Uinta Mountains, 370-plus miles of trails, a blue-ribbon trout stream (the Provo River), and an Olympic training center built for the 2002 Salt Lake Games. More than 100 Olympians live in Park City. “There is no better blend of small-town friendliness, absurdly easy access, and five-star culture than Park City,” said Outside Magazine.

SKI Magazine Readers Agree: They Love Park City’s Resorts

SKI Magazine announced in their October issue the results of it’s annual Reader’s Choice that ranks North America’s ski resorts in a variety of categories, from snow and grooming to off-hill activities. All three of Park City’s resorts placed in the top 10. Deer Valley is No. 2, Park City Mountain Resort is No. 5 and Canyons is No. 10. Last year was the first in which Deer Valley, PCMR and Canyons all finished in the top 10 overall in the West.
Deer Valley placed first overall in several categories including grooming, service, on-mountain food, lodging and family programs. Park City Mountain Resort was first overall in three categories: access, off-hill activities, and terrain parks. It was also second overall in family programs.

Canyons wrapped up the tenth spot, joining this top ten list for two years in a row. The addition of Vail Resorts operating Canyons will further support its position among the top resorts in the country.

With three Top Ten ski resorts all in one town, Park City enjoys unparalleled access to the best in outdoor mountain recreation.
