Don’t be deceived by the name—there’s more to Park City than kickers and rails. Sage Kotsenburg grew up here, “and there’s no reason to leave,” he says. “It is my favorite park, an awesome town, and an amazing mountain.” Sage suggests starting your day off with breakfast at Wasatch Bagel then warming up on Claim Jumper. If it’s dumping, head to Scott’s Bowl or the trees by Pinecone Ridge. For lunch, make your way to Cobra Dogs at the bottom of 3 Kings park. Then ply your park skills in the new Neff Land or throw down your A-game in King’s Crown. At the end of the day, snag some cheap beer at O’Shucks or a killer pizza at Davanza’s. If you still haven’t gotten your fill, head back for night riding.
