When it comes to spring skiing, it helps to know which slopes to hit for the best snow conditions. Here are the best mountains for spring skiing at Park City’s three world-class ski areas:
With a deep base and exceptional snowmaking capabilities, Deer Valley is one resort where ski conditions remain silky smooth all season-long. For the very best conditions, head up the Empire Express for fun tree runs and powder-filled chutes. Novices can find great snow on Flagstaff Mountain with three green runs from the top and several groomed intermediate runs down the face. After a day of sunshine-filled groomers, skiers can relax on an inviting ski beach at Silver Lake Village.
Recommended Areas: Thaynes Mountain, McConkey’s Mountain, Bonanza Mountain
Recommended Runs: Keystone, Sunrisde, Georgeaana, Homerun, Claim Jumper
Recommended Lodging: Woodside Villa, 435 Park Ave., Little Empire
Expert skiers will have a blast on Jupiter Peak and McConkeys Bowl at Park City Mountain Resort, but families can have just as much fun this spring in the Thaynes and Bonanza areas. The green Claim Jumper run, which is well-covered season-long, allows novice skiers to explore the back side of the mountain, with confidence-building broad blue runs at King Con and Thaynes.
Canyons doesn’t just host live outdoor concerts, lighthearted competitions and other celebratory spring skiing events (pond skimming, anyone?), Utah’s largest resort also has great spring skiing conditions as well. Take Peak 5, Dreamscape and Day Break lifts for the best snow. Stay in Peak 72 home, and those slopes will be right out your back door!
