Here, at Team Schlopy, to say that we love skiing would be an understatement. So, we thought we would share our favorite runs in the Park City Area.
Deer Valley Choices
Erik Schlopy: I like Star Gazer because it has a great feel to it and sun usually hits it early so I can make GS turns the entire way and the pitch is nice and steep which helps me load the ski up.
Jason Harris: Favorite powder run is the Mayflower Bowl. It is a black diamond that is off the beaten path so great powder and not a lot of traffic Favorite Groomed Run is Star Gazer. It is a fun blue run that is a little challenging but you can keep good speed, duck into some trees, and get on Red Cloud to do it again!
Lana Harris: Favorite powder run is Ontario Bowl. There is a little hike to get to it, but well worth it to get fresh tracks.
Favorite Groomed Run is Hawkeye. It is a blue run that is fun fast or slow. It is a wide run that doesn’t get tracked out quickly.
Marny Schlopy: Hawkeye then to Custer, It is a nice wide trail with an amazing pitch and you can hit powder when you take the turn at Custer near the end of Hawkeye.
Park City Base Choices
Erik Schlopy: I like Payday because I have good memories there from races in the past plus night skiing with my kids when they used to have night skiing.
Lana Harris: I like Parley’s Park to Sunnyside to Thaynes Canyon. It is a LONG smooth trail that isn’t overly busy.
Marny Schlopy: I go where my girlfriends take me.
Park City Village Choices
Erik Schlopy: I like Upper Apex Ridge / Apex Ridge at The Canyons because it’s long and usually not crowded. Very nice run to cruise with my kids.
