As Park City has three world class ski resorts within a stone’s throw of each other, Canyons, Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort, you will be forgiven if you think the only activities in Park City are skiing and snowboarding. Because Park City has a special relationship with the snow gods, it typically snows at night, leaving sunny deep powder days for boarding and skiing. However, Park City is so much more.
From lift served snow tubing, to ice skating, to ski jumping at the site of the 2002 winter Olympics ski jump competitions, to horse drawn sleigh rides, to cross country skiing, to hiking, to snowshoeing, to fishing and so much more, if you were crazy enough, you could come to Park City and not ski or board at all.
Yoga studios abound, as do spas, health clubs, tennis courts, museums, art galleries and more. Early risers will often see several colorful balloons aloft, looking like they came straight out of Wizard of Oz. Snowmobiling, river sports, heli skiing and heli boarding, ziplining, alpine sliding and alpine coastering are available for the adventurous types. Of course, movies, bowling and shopping are all Park City favorites for the rest of us. Park City is also a hub of adaptive recreation thanks to the National Abilities Center.
No matter what your pleasure, Park City can provide it. Unless your pleasure is sky scrapers.
