Snowboarding is a sport that has very adamant sports enthusiasts, and some who loathe it just as much. Whether you’re in the “love it” camp or the “loathe it” camp, you’ll be able to find two super resorts where you can take your snowboard to the slopes in Park City Utah.
You can’t talk about Park City snowboarding without talking about Utah’s largest snowboard resort: the Canyons. Home to the annual Sprint US Snowboarding Grand Prix, Canyons Resort boasts two awesome terrain parks, six half-pipes and a ton of bowls to just crank and have some fun. This resort is the home of some of our best snowboard athletes in the United States of America. Snowboarders Jonathan Cheever, Cooper Hoffmeister and Jason Hindman spend a lot of time boarding here on the course designed by none other than top terrain designer, Steve Duke. Last season, Steve and the crew made up a great terrain park filled with wall rides, kickers, plank drops, boxes, as well as our unique Gong feature and a radical skull-candy pipe.
Park City Mountain Resort is another favorite destination for snowboarding enthusiasts. Host to the 2002 Winter Olympics, Park City Mountain Resort was the top ranked snowboard terrain park for 2005 and 2006 by Transworld Snowboarding Magazine. Part of what makes this terrain park so great is the super features that help you and challenge you whether you’re new to the sport or you’re snowboarding royalty. Come play on the Eagle Superpipe’s twenty-two foot walls. If you’re looking to get air for the first time, check out Jonesy’s. Rodeo is all about perfecting that switch. Manoeuvre through the boxes at PayDay Park and you’re on your way to playing at the Pick ‘n Shovel Park, where our dream team of snowboarding gods play and plan their next tricks. Don’t be too surprised if you happen to meet Shaun White, Tanner Hall, Jeremy Jones, or Marc Frank Montoya practicing their latest stunts while you’re just getting the hang of things.
If you’re looking for lessons, be sure to check out some of the great programs at each of these two incredible resorts. There are lessons for children and adults of every age and experience. Park City Mountain Resort features a women’s only program which helps women tackle the slopes with ease.
But if you’re looking to snowboard Park City, do yourself a favour and stay away from Deer Valley Resort which has banned snowboarding on their slopes.
When you’re snowboarding Park City Utah, be sure to use all the required safety equipment for your safety and maximum fun. Both of the resorts require that individuals below the age of seventeen must wear a helmet while snowboarding. If you don’t have your own board, helmet or boots, these and other equipment can be rented at Park City Mountain Resorts and Canyons Resort as well as a number of different outfitters and rental companies in town.
