Find out what the locals have known for years – chairlifts are just as good in the summer.
Park City’s world class ski resorts run their lifts throughout the summer with a fast-growing sport in mind – mountain biking. With 450 miles of Gold Level trails weaving through Park City’s high-elevation mountains, access to the lifts is the key to making sure you get the most out of your time on the saddle. Check out what each unique resort is offering, and make sure that you leave enough time to experience it all.
Three lifts provide bike access during the summer at Park City Mountain and are centrally located amongst some of Park City’s most beautiful trails. The Payday lift operates for early-season biking and hiking access beginning in May at the Park City Mountain Village. The high-speed four-seat Crescent Lift also runs out of the Park City Mountain Village and unloads mountain bikers at access points for the IMBA Epic Ride on the Mid-Mountain Trail. The Red Pine Gondola runs out of Canyons Village and accesses miles of gorgeous cross-country trails. Bike rentals are available at both base areas. Please refer to www.parkcitymountain.com for summer mountain bike rates, hours of operation, and more information.
Park City Mountain Village also features an adventure zone, zip lines, Alpine Coaster, Legacy Launcher, Little Miners Park, climbing wall, and mini-golf. With dining and lodging options right at the base, Park City Mountain is a great family-friendly option that provides world-class mountain biking access.
Deer Valley was the first resort in Park City to put a concerted effort in to the development and maintenance of mountain bike trails. Deer Valley continues to expand its trail network this year with a fourth flow trail connecting mid-mountain to lower-mountain.
Deer Valley has three lifts to access over 3,000 feet of elevation and an extensive trail network. The start of the IMBA Epic Mid-Mountain Trail is near the base of Deer Valley’s Sterling Lift and next to their Silver Lake Lodge. With hiking trails, XC trails, and technical downhill trails, Deer Valley is the original web of diverse single track in Park City.
Three flow trails, twilight riding, two free bus access points, and the world class customer service that is the hallmark of one of North America’s top ski resorts, make Deer Valley an incredibly versatile starting point for a mountain bike vacation.
