Things to Do During Park City’s Mud Season

Deer Valley Ski Resort, Park City, Utah: An Overview

Park City Spring Break

Park City’s Ultimate Winter Event Guide

Deer Valley is an exclusive ski resort located in Park City, Utah, and is a mere 38 miles from Salt Lake City. Combining stunning and picturesque slopes with industry-best amenities, impeccable lodging, and instructive ski classes, there’s something for everyone at the Deer Valley Ski Resort.

What Is Skiing Like At Deer Valley Ski Resort?

Deer Valley Ski Lift

The resort offers an experience unrivaled by any other in the country. Easily accessible from nearby Salt Lake City, the resort is located on the beautiful Wasatch Range of the western Rockies, and its slopes are immaculately maintained for the best possible skiing experience possible.

Named the US’s best ski resort by Condé Nast Traveler, Deer Valley offers the ultimate family skiing experience paired with unimpeachable customer service. Those eager to hit the slopes will find getting there a trivial matter; the resort’s speedy ski lifts will have you cruising down the mountainside in a matter of minutes, and many of the lodges are ski-in/ski-out, meaning you can strap your skis on and just go!

Is Deer Valley Ski Resort Only For Skiers?

Yes – it is indeed a ski-only resort, and as such, snowboards are not allowed. That said, alpine, telemark, and monoski equipment are all permitted, provided feet are forward-facing and planted side by side. Deer Valley takes its commitment to skiing seriously – it’s one of only three resorts in the United States that are ski-only.

Can You Rent Skis At Deer Valley?

You certainly can. The resort offers top-of-the-line Rossignol ski equipment, all expertly maintained by trained technicians. The resort has two rental shops, both of which have extended opening hours and are conveniently located in the event of your needing to switch out your equipment. It’s also possible to book equipment online and have it ready for you at dispatch stations, obviating the need to waste time picking up your equipment before hitting the slopes.

Got your own equipment? You can make use of the rental shops to have your equipment maintained or waxed for a nominal fee. Whether renting or using your own, the resort ensures that you spend less time worrying about equipment and more time on the slopes.

karsten-winegeart-nFs98G05ZHM-unsplash-copy-1-600x868

Is Deer Valley Good For Beginner Skiers?

Yes – the resort is perfect for novice skiers. 27% of the resort’s slopes are rated ‘green’ (extremely easy, flat slopes) and there are multiple areas designed ‘slow ski’ areas, ensuring that novices of any age can get to grips with the slopes without feeling nervous or uncomfortable. Such slopes ensure that there aren’t more advanced skiers zooming past at high speeds, and beginners can feel free to take their time and get their bearings.

The best slopes for beginners are detailed below.

Silver Strike Express

Yes – the resort is perfect for novice skiers. 27% of the resort’s slopes are rated ‘green’ (extremely easy, flat slopes) and there are multiple areas designed ‘slow ski’ areas, ensuring that novices of any age can get to grips with the slopes without feeling nervous or uncomfortable. Such slopes ensure that there aren’t more advanced skiers zooming past at high speeds, and beginners can feel free to take their time and get their bearings.

The best slopes for beginners are detailed below.

Northside Express

The express chairlift of the Northside Express is located just outside the entrance of Deer Valley’s Grand Lodge, making access to the slope child’s play. Another great introduction to skiing in Deer Valley for adults and children alike.

Ruby Express

With a ski lift that will have you at the top of the slope in less than three minutes, the Ruby Express originates at the Empire Lodge and features a gentle, well-maintained slope that’s great for skiing neophytes to sink their teeth into.

maarten-duineveld-pmfJcN7RGiw-unsplash-400x267

What’s The Hardest Run At Deer Valley?

The most talked-about run at the resort is undoubtedly Chute #4. This challenging double-black-diamond (the highest possible slope grade) slope has excellent snow quality, but requires the skier to traverse a wooded area from the ski lift, and sometimes develops cornices that can make navigating the slope treacherous. Definitely one for expert skiers only.

Deer Valley Vs. Park City

A lot of visitors to the Park City area will find themselves wondering if it’s not worth simply staying in the city itself, as opposed to making use of the Deer Valley lodging. While this is certainly something worth considering, staying onsite is a perfectly valid option. The resort not only offers unparalleled customer service that ensures your every desire is sated, it also offers the best variety of ski terrain – with the sort of immaculately groomed slopes that keep beginners and experts alike coming back.

That said, there are a number of options that are close to Deer Valley that are just as good as staying in the resort itself. There are even a few hotels and resorts within Park City itself that, despite their easy access to the city amenities, still offer ski-in/ski-out access! Let’s take a look at two of the better options available within Park City itself.

What’s The Hardest Run At Deer Valley?

The deluxe condos offered at The Caledonian, located in downtown Park City and just over a mile from Deer Valley, are enough to make you want to skip the skiing altogether and just while the day away in front of the fireplace! With fully equipped kitchens for home-cooked meals and hot tubs located on private balconies, staying at The Caledonian is truly living in the lap of luxury.

Of course, The Caledonian still offers quick and easy access to the slopes at Park City Mountain, with ski-in/ski-out access and ski lifts located conveniently close to each condo entrance.

Portico

Looking for something a little more secluded and rustic? Portico‘s chalet-style cabins bring all the old-world charm of the Swiss Alps to Utah, with private decks and garages, cozy kitchens, and crackling fireplaces to warm you after a hard day on the piste. The best part? Portico is just under a mile from Deer Valley!

Town Lift Condominiums

Combining the best of both worlds, Town Lift offers fast access to the slopes of Park City Mountain while making sure you have all the creature comforts of the city. Located on Main Street in downtown Park City and just over a mile from Deer Valley, Town Lift puts you right at the heart of the action while still ensuring that you can be skiing in a matter of minutes with the Town Lift ski lift.

What’s more, each condo is as fully equipped as any other you’d find in the area, meaning you don’t have to sacrifice even a modicum of comfort for being right in the middle of town. There are even private garages, ensuring that you never have to fight for a parking spot in the streets below.

Deer Valley Ski School

Deer Valley’s award-winning ski school makes learning the sport easy and fun. With classes available for both kids and adults, the resort’s experienced instructors offer lessons that are both instructive and entertaining. All lessons are tailored to each student’s ability level and desired goals, and are designed to ensure students hit the slopes as quickly as possible in order to make the most out of their vacation.

Even if you’ve got a few hours on the piste under your belt, it may be worth taking a few classes nonetheless. If you’re at all rusty, brushing up on your technique can ensure that you have a more enjoyable time out on the slopes – and it may break you out of some bad habits that you didn’t even realize you had.

Whatever your decision, it’s worth chatting with one of the resort’s instructors before making any final decisions. A prudent skier is a skier that has a good time!

Deer Valley, Utah Lodging

The resort itself features no shortage of amazing lodges nearby and within the resort grounds itself – so much so, that it can be tough to make a decision about where to stay. When making a decision on Deer Valley, Utah, lodging, it pays to go with All Seasons Resort Lodging – the leading industry experts on Deer Valley Ski Resort lodgings, as well as other nearby hotels and lodges within Park City itself.

Park City Spring Break

Cool Park City Summers

Some days, you just have to beat the heat. When the sun threatens to boil your brain, you need an escape. Fortunately, Park City is a perfect place to stay when you want a cool summer getaway. Try some of our favorite summer activities when you need to stay cool in Park City.

  1. Rafting and Tubing
  2. Fly Fishing
  3. Timpanogos Cave
  4. Shop Till You Drop
  5. Gallery Stroll
  6. Indoor Sports
  7. Jordanelle Reservoir

Rafting and Tubing

Rafting on the river to stay cool

Rafting down the river is cool and exciting

Park City sits near two great rivers. Both Weber River and Provo River are frequent destinations for locals looking to cool off, especially during the peak of the season. Floating down the stream, taking in the beautiful scenery, catching glimpses of local fauna, and getting good and soaked is the perfect way to spend a toasty afternoon.

If you want a more organized, guided experience, a rafting experience is the perfect choice. Those looking for more self-directed fun and feel more comfortable in the water should try a tubing trip. Each river has a different character. The Weber River experience has plenty of class II rapids, while the Provo River is a more sedate waterway. We suggest tackling the water during the hottest parts of the day to keep from getting too cool. Both rivers are fed by runoff from the winter snow pack, and get mighty chilly.

For the budget-minded, tubing is the less expensive option, but families should stick to rafting for their watery adventure, as small bodies can’t tame the tubes as effectively. No matter how you decide to enjoy the river, make sure you’re wearing a life jacket at all times. It’s the law.

Fly Fishing

Out on the river catching fish and soaking up the beauty

Of course, sitting in the water isn’t the only thing the rivers around Park City offer. Park City is a great fishing destination. Fly fishing is a popular activity nearly year-round. While hanging around the river in winter will have you shivering in your waders, summer is a great time to cool off in the great outdoors. Get waist deep in the refreshing water and angle for some of the beautiful, large fish swimming up and down the canyons.

A bit of summer fishing is a great self-directed activity, but can also be enjoyed with any of the expert fishing guides operating out of Park City. Be advised that the Weber River is mostly private access, though many land owners have decided to opt into a walking access program that allows anglers to get to the water, you should still check to make sure that you are allowed to get to that prime fishing hole you have your heart set on. The Provo River is much easier to access, as most of it is public land.

Timpanogos Cave

Underground Caves

A stalactite from the depths of Timp Cave

Getting wet while basking under the sun in one way to stay cool. But if the heat is just too much to take, there are more extreme solutions, like heading underground. The Timpanogos Cave is located just an hour from Park City, and makes a great vacation day trip. If the sun is getting under your skin, get under the Earth’s skin with this fascinating guided hike.

Marvel at the incredible processes that build intricate and beautiful caves, look at strange and unusual rock formations, and take a break from the summer sun at a much more manageable average of 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Getting to the cave requires a 1.5 mile hike up a fairly steep incline, so be prepared for that. Also, make life easier underground by bringing a light jacket and a small flashlight.

Shop Till You Drop

Downtown Park City

Shopping just off Main Street in Park City

Maybe you don’t want to escape the heat in nature. Maybe you want to chill out in the comfort of one of man’s greatest achievements: air conditioning. Then maybe Park City’s Historic Main Street is the choice for you.

There are more than 50 shops and boutiques lining Park City’s famous downtown thoroughfare, full of every conceivable assortment of merchandise and tchotchke, apparel and souvenir. The shops are a source of one-of-a-kind treasures and interesting relics in addition to your usual stock of t-shirts and mugs. Don’t forget to stop in for some original art from Park City’s premier talents at any of the galleries scattered throughout the downtown area.

If you exhaust Main Street’s boutiques without exhausting yourself, head to the other side of town to explore Outlets Park City. This outlet mall packs some of the biggest brands in the country at the best prices you’ll find anywhere. You will find everything from Eddie Bauer to Bath & Body Works during your spending spree.

Indoor Sports

Woodward Park City boasts an impressive selection of indoor sport activities

Okay, you want to be indoors, but shopping and strolling isn’t your thing. Maybe a bit of indoor sport is in order. Park City happens to have an excellent indoor playground for all ages called Woodward Park City.

It might be easier to list all the things the Indoor Sports Hub doesn’t have. From the smallest athletes to the most seasoned daredevils, Woodward has something for everyone. Trampolines, parkour courses, tumbling surfaces, ramps and rails with airbags, a BMX pump track, and more await. Learn something new or show off your “A” game within a comfortably air-conditioned sports complex.

Stop by their Hive Cafeteria to stock up on all the calories you need to keep your body moving from sun up to sun down.

Best Hike for a Panoramic View: Silver Lake Trail

Silver-Lake-Trail-Park-City-KSLdotcom-1200x675 (1)

Panoramic vistas of Jordanelle Reservoir // source: KSL.com

Going back to the water, Jordanelle State Park is the perfect destination for the visitor who wants to stay cool while playing with big toys. Boating on Jordanelle is a ton of fun, whether you just want to hang out onboard, or zip around behind a speeding boat, dangling from a rope on your choice of ski, board, tube, or even parachute.

The reservoir isn’t limited to just boating, of course. There is plenty of camping to enjoy along the shore, and plenty of anglers dot the water’s edge, hoping for a nibble. Also, if you don’t have your own boat or other equipment to bring along, there are plenty of rental options for just about anything you’d like to enjoy.

Stay Cool All Night Long

No matter how much fun you’re having, you will have to sleep eventually. Pick one of our cool condos, relaxing townhomes, or comfortable vacation residences for a just-right night of rejuvenating sleep. Wake up refreshed and ready to try another cool summer activity every morning. There’s more to experience behind every corner and around every bend.

And you can enjoy it all from one of Main Street’s dining decks. A few select tables are available for your enjoyment, whether you’re starting your day with huevos rancheros or ending it with a burger.
 

Flanagan’s on Main

There aren’t a lot of Irish pubs in Park City. Even if there were, Flanagan’s would still reign supreme. It doesn’t get a lot more authentic-from the plates of corned beef and cabbage to the shots of Irish whiskey. You’re free to take your craic in the warm wooden dining room or at the welcome bar, but you can also opt for a more outdoorsy experience. Step outside the front door and toss back a pint under the canvas of the Main Street deck. Salute passing traffic from just outside the lane and survey the beauty of the heart of downtown Park City.
 

Main Street Pizza and Noodle

Revel in the rich, starchy goodness of all things Italian at Main Street Pizza and Noodle. Grab a tasty slice of pizza, tuck into a bowl of tortellini, and so much more. Look elsewhere if you are hoping to keep the carbs away. But you won’t find a better spot in town to pile your plate high with pasta. This restaurant is all about abbondanza, and that includes a wealth of outdoor seating. Take your meal onto the street-level deck and breathe in some fresh air while you inhale your linguine.

Shabu

Don’t let the name fool you; there’s more than hotpot going on inside Shabu. There’s a wealth of freestyle Asian creations behind that unassuming awning. You’ll find something unexpected to delight the senses in every dish on the menu. You’ll also forget that Park City is more than 1,000 miles away from the nearest ocean when you sample the seafood. Remind yourself of your alpine location by eating on the Main Street deck, which takes you out of the slick dining room and into the rustic atmosphere of downtown Park City.
 

Fletcher’s (Swede Alley side)

A classy restaurant and lounge with some luxurious spaces for both drinking and dining, Fletcher’s is a refined experience designed to appeal to sophisticated palates. Beauty can be found in the intimate lounge space, the upscale menu, the hand-crafted cocktails, and the artful presentation of each dish. With a lovely space next to beautiful Swede Alley, Fletcher’s can throw open the large garage-style doors to allow diners to spill out into the mountain atmosphere. Take in the historic character of the adjoining plaza while exploring the contemporary tastes of Fletcher’s menu.
 

Keep it Cool

Fletcher’s (Swede Alley side)

Not only is Butcher’s Chop House and Bar one of Park City’s tastiest steakhouses and bars, it also has one of the best views on Main Street. Their sprawling patio takes in a sweeping vista of the Town Lift located just a few feet away. Lounge in comfort and let Butcher’s serve up expert cuts of prime beef and refreshing cocktails in the shadow of the surrounding hills. It has the added convenience of a location on the first floor of The Caledonian, one of the only ski-in/ski-out properties on Main Street.

Park City’s favorite quirky snack shack is also equipped with a cozy little patio. Order up a plate of street tacos, a slice of pizza, or a quick beer to enjoy in the breeze outside. You’ll be sheltered from the elements under the roof, but with plenty of fresh mountain air to enjoy from your spot behind the railing bar. You’ll also be right at the bottom of Main Street, near Town Lift.

One of Park City’s most beloved restaurants, this new-American eatery offers an upscale menu of seasonal dishes with a focus on local ingredients. A meal at Riverhorse on Main is a true local Park City experience. While the main dining area is already an airy space with plenty of natural light, the balcony puts you right into the evening air above Main Street. The second-floor outdoor seating provides a commanding view of the downtown area and the surrounding countryside.

If you want to take your meal to go, you can grab some pre-prepared options from their Riverhorse Provisions location.
 

The Bridge Cafe and Grill

A location at Town Lift at the bottom of Main Street, a fresh menu of invigorating flavors with a Brazilian twist, and a huge outdoor eating space make it easy to love The Bridge Cafe and Grill. Breakfast all day is a big specialty here, with everything from an acai bowl to the meanest eggs Benedict in town. Make it a real meal on the town by dining on the open deck. This plaza space serves as the base of the Town Lift and gives The Bridge one of the largest outdoor dining spaces in Park City. The views of the hills above Main Street and the excitement of the downtown area make your dining experience even more enjoyable.

A Word From The Owners:

“We actually have two patios. Our first patio has about six tables, and our second patio is much larger, with about 10 tables”
 

Cafe Terigo

This cozy eatery offers a rich menu of Old World flavors. Northern Italy and the south of France dominate the menu, with a robust selection of time-tested flavors and traditional preparations. The laid-back atmosphere conjures images of the rustic European countryside, though you can opt to dine outside to take in the rustic Utah countryside instead. Their large patio lets you bask in the warmth of the earthy bricks and the cool of the leafy shade while you experience some classic hospitality.
 

Red Rock Junction

A lively atmosphere, both inside and out, makes Red Rock an appealing choice for an energizing lunch or casual dinner. Their menu is predominantly American favorites, from burgers and pizza to steak and fried fish. Pairing your meal with some of their delicious craft brews (alcoholic or otherwise) is essential to the Red Rock experience. Their indoor seating is a lively industrial backdrop, but the outdoor seating puts you in the middle of the energetic Redstone shopping complex. Relax under the shade while you chow down on your Red Rock burger and sip your brew.

Hiking in Park City

Choosing the best hike in Park City to satisfy your craving for adventure can be tough because Park City is crisscrossed and surrounded by some of the most spectacular trails in Utah.
Fortunately, we’ve got a list of the 7 best hikes in Park City right here! Let’s jump right into it:

  1. Mid-Mountain Trail
  2. Bloods Lake
  3. Armstrong Trail
  4. Run-A-Muk
  5. McPolin Farm Nature Trail
  6. Union Pacific Rail Trail
  7. Silver Lake Trail

Best Hike for an Epic Adventure: Mid-Mountain Trail

Mid-Mountain Trail in Park City

If you’re only going to hike one trail in Park City, make it this one. The Mid-Mountain Trail is a 23-mile trek that will take you all the way from Deer Valley past Kimball Junction, showing you the entirety of the Park City area in one trip.

It climbs. It descends. It will take you through pines, into aspens, over bare rock, and across quiet meadows. You’ll make your way across the runs at all three major ski areas and look down on the city from multiple vantage points.

The trail is difficult, but not punishingly so. A whole day is definitely needed to experience the entire trail in one session on foot. One thing that is particularly nice about this trail is that it can be broken up into smaller chunks if you don’t want to tackle it all in one go. Each leg feels like a meaningful experience on its own. You can devote an entire week to the experience if you prefer a more leisurely pace.

Best Hike for a Day at the Lake: Bloods Lake

The Tree-Lined Bloods Lake in Park City During Summer

Hitting the lake is the closest most Utahns get to a day at the beach. There are several beautiful lakes in the Park City area, but one of our favorites is Bloods Lake. We’ve written about it in detail before. The lake itself has a beautiful color, cold snow-melt waters, an interesting shoreline, and plenty of open space for lounging, playing, and dining.

The hike out to the lake isn’t particularly long or challenging, which leaves you plenty of time and energy for fun once you arrive. That said, the short trek offers you a pleasant sampler.

You get a meadow, some aspens, switchbacks, and even a selection of boulders. Once the trail levels out, it opens onto the lake. You could spend the rest of your day right here.

Bonus: If you want more hiking and another lake, you can push on to rugged Lackawaxen Lake. This second lake sits a little higher up, and the trail offers steep climbing, more meadows, and a striking boulder field. Lackawaxen Lake is a stark contrast to Bloods Lake, showing more bare stone and fallen trees than the latter’s densely wooded shore and placid waters.

Best Hike for a Picnic: Armstrong Trail

Armstrong Trail is one of the most famous hikes in town. It’s the total package. It is relatively short, measuring just 3.8 miles. It has gorgeous views of native flowers, aspen forests, and Park City. It is open to hikers, bikers, humans, and canines alike. And it is right in the middle in terms of difficulty.

Pack your picnic basket and bring the full spread right onto the trail. With so many beautiful sights to see along the trail, you can stop off for a scenic meal wherever you like. For maximum beauty, we suggest a rich autumn meal in sight of Park City’s breathtaking aspen forests as the leaves put on an unbelievable show for your dinner. In the spring, you can dine in a flowering meadow surrounded by Indian paintbrush and columbines. Or sit back and contemplate Park City’s bygone days while snacking next to abandoned mining equipment and looking down on the town.

However you choose to picnic, be a responsible steward of the earth by removing every scrap of food and packaging on your way out. Give a hoot, don’t pollute our pristine wilderness!

Best Hike for an Off-Leash Dog: Run-A-Muk

Run-A-Muk dog park

Dogs running amok on the Run-A-Muk trail // source: girlsonahike.com

It’s no secret that Parkites love their dogs. You might have even heard us referred to as “Bark City.” Most of the time, though, pets must be on a leash while exploring the town. But every dog has its day, and there are a few designated areas around Park City where dogs can run, play, and experience the great outdoors without a leash in sight. One of our favorite off-leash areas is the Run-A-Muk dog park and trail.

This enormous doggy playground is located in Kimball Junction, in the shadow of Utah Olympic Park. In fact, it is just on the other side of our very own Bear Hollow Village. The trail is a leisurely loop around the highland scrub, aspens, and meadows surrounding Kimball Junction.

The entire time, you’ll have a lovely view of  Utah Olympic Park. While there is a small stream in the trail area, you will probably want to bring some water along to keep your pup hydrated. As you make your way around the circuit, your four-legged friend is free to do anything they like. There are plenty of interesting smells to explore, trees to mark, and new friends to make. Your fur baby will have so much fun they’ll beg to come back again and again.

While we absolutely love dogs, they’re not permitted in our rental units, as each one is privately owned.

Best Hike for an Easy Walk With the Kids: McPolin Nature Trail

McPolin Barn in Park City

McPolin Barn is one of the most famous buildings in Park City. The huge white structure rises over the surrounding basin, a major landmark on the highway between Kimball Junction and downtown Park City. The nature trail that shares its name is the perfect way to introduce even young children to the joys of hiking.

The hike starts at a parking lot just off the highway, where you will make your way through a colorfully painted pedestrian tunnel before exploring the meadow. A path meanders over a burbling brook, around the barn, and through aspen thickets.

To help your little ones stay invested and learn more, a series of 11 interpretive plaques line the trail. These signs include interesting information that supplements the natural beauty all around for a fun, educational outing. The route itself is pretty flat and wraps up in less than two miles for a complete loop. If young hikers need a rest or a snack, take a breather on several benches beside the path.

Best Hike for a History Lesson: Union Pacific Rail Trail

More than just a trail, the Union Pacific Rail Trail is a state park. It is just under 30 miles long and represents a long, snaking course through Park City and surrounding communities. The trail is also notable for the vast number of activities on offer. You can hike, bike, cross-country ski, and ride horseback-among others. Anything non-motorized is fair game. Three miles of the trail, the length that runs through downtown Park City, are paved. The rest is gravel, but well kept and wide.

As the name might suggest, the entire trail used to be part of a rail network running through the area. Coal once came down from Coalville (naturally) by narrow-gauge rail into town to service the pumps necessary to mine silver out of the hills surrounding Park City. That same course was then used to guide the wide-gauge cars necessary to bring the silver out of town. After Union Pacific abandoned the whole endeavor in 1989, it was converted into this gorgeous trail system.

Additional historical markers expound on the history of the trail, tracing the routes of early Mormon settlers and even the ill-fated Donner Party. Hiking the trail is a true walk through Park City’s history, and you’ll step away from your time enriched with local facts.

Best Hike for a Panoramic View: Silver Lake Trail

Silver Lake Trail in Deer Valley

Panoramic vistas of Jordanelle Reservoir // source: KSL.com

Mountains surround Park City on every side. Bald Mountain is an especially striking peak, and this trail along its backside offers some of the most beautiful views in the area. This foot-only voyage provides you two different experiences. You can either take the lift to the top and hike down, or you can hike up and take the lift down.

While more challenging, the hike upward offers a more satisfying journey. The Jordanelle Reservoir and the Uintas slowly come into view as you ascend until you reach the top and look out over what seems like the whole world. Then, once you’ve soaked up enough panoramic perfection, you will be slowly ushered back down to Deer Valley on the relaxing lift, watching as the vistas quietly retreat over the hills once more.

As an extra tip, the resort has made hiking sticks available to guests for use on the trail. They can really help you as you make the steep ascent.

All that hiking can take it out of you. All Seasons Resort Lodging offers Park City’s largest selection of condominiums, townhomes, and vacation residences, each one perfectly equipped to help soothe your sore muscles and aching bones.

Watersports on Jordanelle Reservoir

When all the snow on our slopes melts in the spring, it all has to go somewhere, right? Thankfully, all of the snow you spent the winter skiing on turns into the snowmelt that fills Jordanelle Reservoir, just 10 minutes away!

Jordanelle Reservoir is a huge aquatic playground right in Park City’s backyard. Jet skiing, parasailing, water skiing, boating, fishing, and more await on these crystal waters. There’s so much to do on the water that we could end our list of Park City summer activities right here-but we won’t!

Hot Air Ballooning

Autumn Aloft Hot Air Balloon event Park City Utah

Look for balloons in the morning sky all season long

If blue waters aren’t enough to keep you busy, how about blue skies? Hot air balloonists love to float through the skies above Park City. Balloon tour operators invite you to soar above the Wasatch peaks and marvel at the pristine vistas of Utah’s natural splendor while dangling peacefully from a colorful balloon. Start your day with an ascent into the heavens and experience the crisp morning air from a vantage usually reserved only for the birds.

Summer Concert Series

Park City summer activities aren’t all based on boats and balloons. One of the most enduringly popular ways to spend your summer evenings in Park City is at a concert. Our quiet mountain town is home to a surprising number of outdoor concert venues.

From the edge of the Swaner Nature Preserve to tranquil Deer Valley, Park City hosts a half-dozen concert series each summer. There is something for every taste. Find a free concert or a paid performance ranging from Beethoven to bluegrass. Park City has it all!

One of our favorites is the Deer Valley Summer Concert Series which brings big names like Michael Franti and Ziggy Marley.

Bobsledding at Utah Olympic Park

Utah Olympic Park in summer

Utah Olympic Park is an all-year playground

We do love winter sports in Park City. We love them so much, in fact, that we keep enjoying them all year. While it is hard to ski without snow, bobsleds can be modified to roll on concrete instead of glide on ice. Park City’s Utah Olympic Park is home to the 2002 Olympic bobsled venue.

Brave souls can experience the 60-mph thrills of a real bobsled ride, even in the summer heat. The bobsled track isn’t the only winter venue that remains active in the summer. Utah Olympic Park also offers attractions like extreme tubing on the Nordic ski jump.

Utah Olympic Park is full of other activities, too. They have one of two alpine slides in Park City. Make sure to check out our Utah Olympic Park page to see what else they have to offer.

Grab Some Ice Cream

Three Hands Holding Ice Cream Cones

We all scream for ice cream, especially when temperatures climb over 90

Dreaming of colder weather? Grab some ice cream and cool down on a hot afternoon. Java Cow is a Park City institution, dispensing handmade frozen treats from the heart of Main Street. All of their delicious flavors are made right on site for an experience that is “udderly Park City.” While you enjoy your sweet treat, why not visit the original Banksy painted on their wall outside? Delicious and artistic.

SUP at Deer Valley

Deer Valley Paddle Boarding In The Summer

The lakes at the foot of Deer Valley Resort are great for peaceful paddling

Jordanelle Reservoir isn’t the only place to enjoy water sports in Park City. The tranquil ponds of Deer Valley are home to an active community of stand up paddling enthusiasts. The glassy waters are perfect for peaceful paddle boarding, surrounded by some of the most gorgeous landscapes in town.

Experience mindfulness on the board with a SUP yoga class conducted by local guides. Indoor classes are also available. Chat with the experts at Park City SUP to get class schedules and events.

Visit the Spa

Feet Getting Pedicure

Go for a mani-pedi or maybe a hot stone treatment

Summer is the perfect time to destress, unwind, and reconnect mind and body. Park City is home to plenty of decadent spas. Luxuriate with your choice of globe-spanning treatments and techniques. From peaceful Japanese soaking tubs to ayurvedic treatments to Swedish massage, you can find the cure for whatever ails you within out many spas and studios.

Expert Tip: Try Massage Express for the ultimate in convenience-they’ll come to you!

Homestead Crater

Speaking of relaxing soaks and steam rooms, nearby Heber Valley is home to a uniquely luxurious geological treasure. The Homestead Crater is a one-of-a-kind thermal bath located inside a 55-foot limestone cone. More than just a hot spring, this naturally occurring sauna is also the only warm-water scuba destination in the continental US. Just soak in the mineral water or try a little paddle board hot yoga. However you want to experience Homestead Crater, there’s nothing else like it.

Shopping at Outlets Park City

Shopping at the sprawling boutiques of Outlets Park City

Hot stones and massages are all well and good, but sometimes you need a little retail therapy. Outlets Park City has you covered. Representing more than 60 brands, these outlet shops have it all. Grab some cute new shoes, pick up a new kitchen gadget, or get equipped for your latest mountain adventure-all in one place.

Deer Valley Ski Resort, Park City, Utah: An Overview
Park City Spring Break

There is more to a Park City winter than skiing. Downhill skiing and snowboarding are a lot of fun, but variety is the spice of life. We like to keep our winters spicy by exploring the many outdoor winter activities in Park City. Try some of these non-skiing outdoor Park City activities when you want a change of pace.

Tubing

Family Tubing Down Slope in Park City

Instead of gliding down the mountainside on skis or a snowboard, try rocketing down the slope in a huge, inflatable tube instead. This simple shift in equipment makes for an entirely new experience, especially if you start spinning around as you fly over the snow. This is a great one for the kids, especially. They will beg you for just one more ride, and another, and another.

For the longest tubing lanes in Utah, make your way over to Woodward Park City. The very smallest (age 1-3) can’t ride, but Woodward does have a toddler-friendly snow park right next to the tubing lanes.

Cross-Country Skiing

Cross Country Ski Trail in Snowy Valley in Utah

Rather than changing the tools, let’s change the venue. Take the skis off the slopes and find your way into the beauty of nature for some cross-country skiing. Explore some of the beautiful parks and trails in the Park City area. For starters, we suggest the Willow Creek Open Area, which features a lovely directional loop, alternating daily. But there are plenty of other options for both beginners and veterans. The Mountain Trails Foundation helps, complete with a daily grooming report. Find some terrain you want to explore, check the condition, and strap in.

A variation of cross-country skiing exists, called skate skiing. This faster, more athletic form of cross-country is growing in popularity, and is fairly self-descriptive. Imagine you are skiing, but on skates. The skis are shorter, the gait is more like that of a skater, and it can only be done on smooth, manicured tracks or thick ice crusts. It will probably take a fair bit more out of you than a bout of traditional cross-country, but is sleek and exciting in a way that the traditional technique is not.

Alpine Coaster

Mother and Child Riding Alpine Slide in the Winter

This favorite amusement, located at Park City Mountain, continues to please, year round. Twist, turn, and loop through nearly a mile of track as your little car shoots down the track. Make sure you are bundled up for a winter ride, as the chilly temperature and the high speed will leave exposed extremities tingly and red. The view is just as spectacular in the winter as it is in the summer, even if the palette around you is a little more monochrome. This is another popular attraction for younger visitors, though very small children will have to wait until they gain some inches before embarking on a wild downhill voyage, as the minimum height to ride, even with adult, is 42 inches.

Ice Skating

Ice Skating Rink at Park City Mountain Resort

Skate until your feet fall off at Park City’s only outdoor skating rink. A charge for admission-and another for skate rentals, if you didn’t bring your own-gets you endless skating time. No limits-just you, your blades, and the ice. There are even skate walkers available for little skaters. The rink itself is located at the Mountain Village, right off the slopes at Park City Mountain. Weather permitting, the rink is open all afternoon and evening. Guests at The Lodge at the Mountain Village can just walk outside to reach the rink.

Sleigh Rides

Maybe you’d like to just relax in the great outdoors for a while. A sleigh ride might be just the thing. You’ll be pulled across hills and through woods as you meander across the countryside behind a pair of beautiful draft horses. You’ll have plenty of time to just take in your surroundings and snuggle under a warm blanket. There are a few choices for your authentic horse-powered cruise, including options that depart right from Park City Mountain and include a hot, filling dinner.

Snow Shoeing

If you enjoy hiking during the warmer months, then snow shoeing might be just your speed. Snow shoes are the perfect tool to get yourself out on those beautiful mountain trails without ending up stuck in a hole. The scenery around Park City is gorgeous at any time of the year, but there is a special majesty to the snow. Explore the trails and find the perfect hike, whether that is a sedate stroll along level terrain or a challenging climb into the hills. Once again, the Mountain Trails Foundation website and grooming reports will be your best friends here.

Relaxing by the Fire

marshmallows roasting on a campfire

Most of the activities discussed so far are pretty chilly. Having fun in the snow has a tendency to leave one cold. After you’re done with all your tromping around and sliding about, top off your day with a relaxing fire. Sure, a lot of our accommodations have fireplaces of their own, whether gas or wood-burning, but there is something special about the campfire appeal of an outdoor blaze. You can spend hours around the fire, warm and cozy under a blanket. Bring some marshmallows to roast, tell your best stories, play a game of werewolf/mafia, or just spend some time watching the flames dance and the shadows flicker. Sundial Lodge and Bear Hollow Village have fire pits of their own, while The Caledonian is right across the street from a Main Street ring.
