Where is Park City UT?

The town of Park City is at the end of Parleys Canyon in Utah, USA. It is only 37 miles (59km) from the Salt Lake City International Airport, which can take 35-60 minutes depending upon road conditions (and how much a tourism promoter wants to embellish the accessibility of the town!).

Park City Ski Resort is within the town of Park City, with the main base located about one mile from the historic Main Street of town. One of the chair lifts starts right from downtown Main St, although this is not the main base of the Park City Mountain.

The Canyons Village at Park City (ie the base of the Canyons side) is 4.6 miles northwest of downtown Park City Utah.

Park City Airport Shuttles

Park City UT is incredibly accessible considering it is less than an hour from SLC airport. From the airport there are 70 different airport shuttle and transportation operators. Most of them have a desk at the airport if you don’t have reservations, although a shuttle transfer can be organized as part of Park City ski packages.

Some of the Park City airport shuttle operators will also provide transport to and from other Utah ski resorts.

Getting Around Park City Utah

If you are staying near the Park City town centre or near a stop on the bus line, it probably won’t be necessary to rent a car, particularly if your vacation will primarily consist of skiing at the resorts and going out at night time. It can be a little tricky to get to some activities out of town (e.g. Gorgoza tubing park, Olympic Park, Park City Powder Cats), but taxis are readily available except during peak holiday periods.

A reasonably easy way to get around most of Park City UT is to use the free public buses. The bus system has routes that cover the downtown area, major hotels, all three ski resorts, and the suburbs including Kimball Junction where the outlet shopping is. Your lodging is likely to have a copy of the bus schedules and maps. The bus system is generally very reliable, except during peak holidays such as Xmas and Sundance when things can go a bit haywire. The frequency of the bus service depends upon the route. Canyons Village is every 20 minutes, Deer Valley is pretty frequent depending upon the time of day. Multiple routes cover the area between Main Street, along Park Avenue and up to Park City Mountain Resort, so buses here are very regular.

Some of the Park City accommodations provide their own on-demand shuttle service.
