Park City is Utah’s favorite playground. There is an endless variety of incredible activities to choose from, even if you find yourself in town without skis on a winter day. Try our non-skier’s primer on Park City Canyons Village activities for the best things to try while your friends and family stand in line for the lifts.

Endless Activities 

Canyons Village is a dynamic and rapidly growing destination. Featuring an assortment of high-end and budget properties, natural beauty, and excellent amenities, Canyons Village has a bit of something for everyone right in the middle of everything. This area was recently connected to Park City Mountain to create the largest ski resort in North America.

  • Snowmobiling – If you prefer something motorized, Red Pine Tours will lend you a snowmobile and some instruction, turning you loose near the base area for an exciting romp across 1,000 acres of private terrain. There is a near-endless supply of snowy terrain to explore within minutes of the Village.

  • Utah Olympic Park –While not part of Canyons Village itself, Utah Olympic Park is just a couple of minutes up the road and features some of Park City’s most exciting adventures. Home to many of the 2002 Winter Games events, the park has facilities for nordic ski jumping, bobsledding, ropes courses, and plenty more. Yes, the bobsledding is open to the public if you feel the need for speed.

    If you somehow manage to exhaust all that Utah Olympic Park has to offer, there are more adventures around nearly every corner. Try your hand at mushing a real dog sled team, or strap on snowshoes for a loop around the scenic Swaner nature preserve. If you want to stay inside, The Mine is a challenging bouldering gym.

You don’t even have to leave the Village to have a good time. There are more than enough Canyons Village activities on site to fill your afternoons with fun and relaxation.

Family on Ski Beach at Canyons Resort
  • Ski Beach – The Village is home to an excellent ski beach where you can catch some warm sun and chilly air while you watch the skiers glide down the mountain. Sit back with a warm cup of cocoa and take in the exciting atmosphere. Just make sure to bring some sunscreen—the only red on your cheeks should be from the cold, not a sunburn! There is plenty of seating, allowing you to set up a lively conversation area or just lie back and do some winter people-watching.

  • Entertainment & Elixirs – You can head over to Umbrella Bar for some lively aprés ski libations under their unique glass bubble. Sample one of Park City’s finest farm-to-table experiences at The Farm. Sit down at Edge Steakhouse and tuck into a fantastic cut of beef. Cruise the village shops for the perfect souvenir. Catch a live performances in the on-site amphitheater. Or just relax by a fire pit at Sundial Lodge, making up s’mores while you look down at the plaza below.

Getting Around

Canyons Village is located between downtown and Kimball Junction, within easy driving distance of both but not really attached to either. The Village has enough to keep you busy and stocked, but if you want to visit Main Street, Outlets Park City, or any of Park City’s other major attractions, you are going to need some kind of motorized transportation.

  • Canyons Village Connect – Request complimentary rides with just a click of a button! Canyons Village Connect is a free transportation service that operates every day from 7:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. for the duration of the winter season. All you have to do is download the app and you’ll have a private chauffeur to whisk you around Park City in no time!

  • Park City Transit – Another way to move around Park City is by electric bus! The free bus line is handy but lacks the freedom of movement and scheduling offered by your own car or Canyons Village Connect. However, if you just want to stay in one area, everything is close enough for foot access.

  • Kimball Junction and Beyond – Canyons Village is the closest base area to I-80 and to Kimball Junction. Here you can find major grocery stores, movie theaters, chain and local restaurants, and the famous Outlets Park City shopping center. Canyons Village is also a great jumping-off point for any Salt Lake City excursions you might have in mind, being just twenty minutes down Parley’s Canyon from Kimball Junction. An afternoon of shopping and dining in the junction or a day trip to SLC will make for an exciting change from the alpine amusements elsewhere in town.
