OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES AT THE PARK CITY MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE PARK

Alpine Day Pass
Park City Mountain’s all-in-one Alpine Day Pass allows you to spend an entire day enjoying unlimited rides on your favorite activities for one great price. The pass includes scenic lift rides and bike haul at both base areas plus the Alpine Slide, Alpine Coaster, Legacy Launcher, Mini Golf, Gem Panning, Climbing Wall, Kids' Tubing, Kids' Zip and Kids' Challenge Course.

Alpine Coaster
Climb into the toboggan-style cars of the Alpine Coaster and get ready for the ride of your life. You'll enjoy the beautiful Wasatch mountain scenery as the automated lift system whisks you to the top of the track. Then, hold on tight as you go whizzing down the mountain on nearly 4,000 feet of curves, bends and loops. It's a ride you won't soon forget.
 
Alpine Slide
Park City Resort's Alpine Slide is one of the longest slides in the world, with over 3,000 feet of gliding and sliding down a luge-like track. With four tracks to choose from, you can experience a different ride each time! We'll see you at the finish.
