Best Terrain Park near Park City UT

Hi Guys,

We are staying near Canyons at the end of March. We hope to have 5 days of boarding. Any recommendations on your favorite terrain parks.

Thank you for any help.

the canyons has the park I prefer over the one at pc for a couple reasons. 1 is placement they have theres in morning sun so its loose early where the ones in pc get afternoon sun which means icy in the morning and slower in the afternoon 2 crowds park city has a ton of folks go there (of course both are busy in saturday)... the beginner park is really a mid lvl park with a good bit of jibs and a nice jump line ranging from 25-35 feet ... the advanced park has some really unique jibs and some much larger jumps at the bottom ....

The canyons is HUGE and has a fun variety of stuff set up in their parks (the car is my favorite jib by far). But park city has better jumps. If you wanna check out powder mountain is got the best variety of EVERYTHING- from park to back country. But wherever you decide to go, you'll have a blast!

Hey Guys,

Thanks for your input. We had a great time in Utah. We missed most if not all of the recent dumps, but still had a blast. I don't do parks, as I am over 50 and kind of new to the sport. My son loves the parks. His favorite was The Canyon's. We also did Park City. I absolutely loved the Jupiter section, which gave a back country feel, and there was a bit of fresh light powder. We also headed over to SLC, and enjoyed Brighton one day, and Snowbird the next. Really cool stuff. Thanks for your inputs.

How PowMow isn't listed as the best resort in america is beyond me. Like you said, It has EVERYTHING in abundance. The expert park is getting better every year ( I really liked the rails with the stairs underneath)

We went this past weekend, they had just gotten 16 inches new and we never had to wait in a line. Not even once. They also have snowcat rides to the top of Lightning ridge for $15/person for untouched pow.

Not that you need to spend the money, you can litterally find untracked powder a week after the last snow without much problem. count the snowcat accessable areas, and it's the largest resort in the US. Not to mention it's Utah powder!

It's only draw backs are slow lifts and ZERO nightlife. The boarding though, if it's not the best in the world, it has got to be in the top 3.

Just my 2 cents ( I am trying not to be to biased, I am a Brighton local, but PowMow is awesome)

Reason #1 It's only draw backs are slow lifts
Reason #2 and ZERO nightlife.
Reason #3 Middle of Nowhere (long ride to get to)

As for the Top 3 in the world, you were there with a foot and a half of fresh....of course it is going to rate high for you.

It is a great mountain, for sure, but it is Far Far Far from one of the top 3 resorts in the world. I'd list it among the top 5 Secrets in the U.S.!
