Freeriding, terrain parks and pistes
in Park City
Freeriderswill be wetting themselves once they see what awaits them on these slopes, which stretch out over a number of peaks. If you like backcountry riding then check out McConkey's bowl where there are some great double diamond runs that weave through the trees. If riding deep powder in bowls is your thing then this place has some fantastic bowls that involve some hiking and then dropping in, notably the trails on Jupiter. Here you will find some black diamond rated trails that can be ridden down to a chair lift, but be warned, this area is for experts.
FreestylersFreestylers who want to catch big air off natural hits are going to love this place. The mountain is littered with hits galore whether it be up in the bowls or down on the lower pisted areas. The resort also builds numerous terrain parks with man-made hits of every shape. Jonesys Park is great for beginners, while the biggest Pick n’shovel park is great for the intermediate. Kings Crown Super Park is for the mad and Pros only, and if that’s not enough, to cap it all there the serious Eagle Superpipe located at the top of the Payday trail. The pipe and the Payday park are flood lit for night riding and are open daily from 9 till 19.30.
PistesPiste huggers are also in for a good time here. There is a fine choice of good cruising trails such as the runs off the King Con chair lift.
Beginners who have never ridden will soon be able to get to grips with things here, as this is a very good first timers resort.READ NEXT: Village life, accommodation & nightlife
