The Park City resorts are dramatically different than Alta.  Located on the leeward side of the Wasatch Mountains, Park City ski resorts don’t receive nearly as much snow as Big or Little Cottonwood Canyons and show little evidence of glaciation.  The ski slopes have a convex shape and there are no high surrounding peaks to protect the runs from winter sunshine.

The terrain and scenery at Park City Ski Areas is dramatically different than the four ski areas in Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons.  There are few dramatic glacial features and the slopes are convex.
