Unmissable Freeride Lines in Park City

10 of the finest backcountry ski lines in the World famous Park City ski area.

Description

Nestled into some typically rugged mountains in the American West, Park City is close to Salt Lake City but can feel like its on a different planet. The town itself is charming and the ski area above it is vast - it can be hard to imagine that the bustle and noise of SLC is just over the hill from you when you're skiing these lines.

This is a suggestion of 10 runs to get you started on the (long and enjoyable) process of learning the area, and you'll encounter some great skiing whilst working your way through them.
