Park City is one of Utah’s top destinations throughout the year, but the winter season is where the city comes alive.

You may find just a single weekend may not be enough to see everything that Park City has to offer. Here is what you can enjoy during a winter weekend getaway to Park City:

Daily temps during the winter season stay around the mid-30s, providing you with a chilly day. Nights are even colder, dropping into the teens. Make sure you bring all of your winter gear with you, as it will be needed when exploring outdoors. If you are looking to upgrade a winter coat or accessory, Park City has plenty of local shops that offer a variety of warm and fashionable clothing.
Winter Sports in Park City
Park City has been popular for winter sports for decades, but the city really took off after the Winter Olympics were hosted here in 2002. Now Park City has been identified as one of the top winter destinations in the world. When visiting Park City, you can expect some of the best skiing and snowboarding conditions around. Our perfect winter temperatures mean the powdery snow sticks around all season. Park City Mountain is one spot where you will find trails to tackle.

Everyone loves visiting the beautiful Park City, but few know of its rich history. Park City features more than just the best ski slopes in the state but also historical attractions. Enjoy your own historical journey to Park City by visiting these local Park City attractions:
Tour Main Street
One of the first places you need to stop by in any city you are visiting is the downtown neighborhood. Park City is no different, as it features the historic Main Street in its downtown district. Main Street has everything you need for an enjoyable trip. The historic buildings house unique local shops and restaurants. The old brick style is a joy to marvel at and the buildings are kept in pristine condition. Check out Main Street on Sundays as the town slows down so you can enjoy everything at your own pace.
Park City Museum
You can help protect and preserve the rich history of Park City by visiting the Park City Museum. This local attraction is all about interpreting the regional history of Park City with engaging exhibitions and educational events. The Park City Museum has been open since 1981 and featured a small historical exhibit. However, the 2002 Winter Olympics brought a growing popularity to historical destinations and heritage tourism in Park City. In fact, the museum saw over 25,000 visitors in its small exhibit in just 10 days. This renewed spotlight allowed Park City Museum to receive funding for a larger location that is now found at Prospector Park; it has only been open since 2017 but features a much bigger space to allow special events and lectures. Visitors can also find exhibits inside City Hall that was originally built in 1885. Exhibits found at Park City Museum include interactive displays focusing on the impact of global culture on Park City, mining, performing arts, and historic events that have taken place. Park City Museum can be found at 528 Main St with entry priced at $15 for adults and $5 for children. The museum is currently open daily from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM with late closing hours at 6:00 PM on Friday and Saturday. Visitors who are high risk for COVID can even book a special appointment that takes place on Fridays before 10:00 AM.
Park City Attractions at the Meyer Gallery
Another way to understand the rich history of Park City is by visiting one of the several art galleries in town. The Meyer Galley is located on Historic Main Street and has been open since 1965. This exceptional gallery features contemporary artwork by national and regional artists. The original works of art on display include oil paintings, photographs, sculptures, and much more. The Meyer Gallery is known to not have a “touristy” vibe and focuses on high quality artwork. Visitors can even purchase work on display to take home as a unique gift found nowhere else. You can visit the Meyer Gallery found at 305 Main Street.
Guardsman Pass Scenic Backway
Historic sites with beautiful views can be found just outside of town at Guardsman Pass Scenic Backway. A drive through this area will give you a personal experience of what early settlers dealt with when they first settled in the area. Gorgeous wildflowers and plenty of hills decorate the landscape surrounding Park City. Outdoor enthusiasts will find plenty of trails to explore off the road along with spots to pull out from the street to snap a picture or two.
Regardless of when you visit Park City, there is some kind of production going on at the Egyptian Theatre, Park City’s own historic performing arts theatre (although the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has put a halt to productions). Park City itself has an extensive history with the performing arts as the original Park City Opera House was originally built in the late 1800s. Soon after that the Dewey Theatre opened up as is the precursor to what the Egyptian Theatre is today. The Dewey Theatre was transformed in 1926 as the renamed Egyptian Theatre but carried on its tradition of unique performing arts. In keeping with the name, the Egyptian Theatre is adorned with Egyptian-themed murals such as hieroglyphics. The Egyptian Theatre has been a center point for live performances and film screenings for the community. Visitors can view a variety of productions such as theatre, musical productions, comedy acts, and much more. You can visit the Egyptian Theatre found at 328 Main Street in the downtown neighborhood.

Even the summer months offer an abundance of outdoor activities that will delight individuals of any age. Park City is not just the ideal vacation destination for those who wish to enjoy outdoor sporting activities; the area also features some incredible natural attractions in Park City that make it a true haven for those who love time spend outside.
Red Pine Lake
In the heart of the mountains you will find Red Pine Lake just outside of Park City. This body of water may not be the biggest lake in the region, but it offers plenty of surprises for visitors who make the trip. Red Pine Lake is much more secluded than other lakes in the area, allowing it to be a quiet refuge for those looking to escape the busy city. Those who complete the hike to the ridges surrounding the lake will be rewarded with sweeping views of Red Pine Lake and other nearby bodies of water.
The greater Park City region is located inside the Wasatch Range, a mountain range that stretches for over 160 miles in Utah and Idaho. The Wasatch Range includes the Rocky Mountains, Great Basin, Bear River Mountains, and more. The Wasatch Range was named after a Shoshoni leader using the native language of the Ute people and stands for “blue heron.” Most of Utah’s settlements are in close proximity or within the boundaries of the range; Salt Lake City is situated right in between the Wasatch Range and Great Salt Lake and is Utah’s most populous city with a population over 2 million people. The Wasatch Range has a low humidity that, when added with the lake effect of local lakes, gives Park City the powdery snow during the winter that outdoor sport enthusiasts absolutely love. You can find the highest point in the Wasatch Range at Mount Nebo, which tops out at 11,900 feet. Visitors to the Wasatch Range often take advantage of the numerous hiking and mountain biking trails, rock climbing, skiing, and fishing. There is a limitless amount of incredible views found only from the Wasatch Range.
The urbanization of Park City has pushed local wildlife further out from the city. The Swaner Preserve and Eco Center is a unique preservation land that gives local wildlife a safe place to roost. Swaner Preserve features an abundance of local wildlife that includes sand hill cranes, voles, ducks, and more. The preserve itself is set upon acres of hills and wetlands that are easy enough to explore. The colder winter months often sees the area covered in snow. However, the local visitor center can help visitors with snowshoe rentals, allowing you to traverse the terrain. The wildlife is often out during most parts of the year and can easily be seen with binoculars. Make sure to stop in the visitor center on the way in to grab a trail map that will help you find your way around the Swaner Preserve.
Natural Attractions in Park City at Jupiter Peak
Of course, we would not be able to talk about the local natural attractions in Park City without mentioning Jupiter Peak. This local mountain peak is the highest point in all of Park City and is frequently used by local ski enthusiasts. For decades Jupiter Peak has been the epicenter of Park City, bringing in visitors after every snowfall. While the peak is known for having several different ski trails and even a few bowls, it also features a variety of trails to explore on your own. The summer season offers hikers the chance to trek up to the top, especially if making your way from Guardsman Pass. Keep note that there are no ski lifts that travel to the top, so adventurers will need to trek up and down the peak on their own to complete this difficult yet rewarding journey.
Union Pacific Rail Trail
For those who wish to traverse the wilderness surrounding Park City and get to know the history of the city, look no further than the Union Pacific Rail Trail. This natural attraction is a relatively flat hiking and biking trail that stretches out past the city. Along the trail you will learn about the rich history of the rail system that allowed Park City to flourish early on. The trail can be wet after recent snowfall but is rewarding with possible wildlife sightings nearby.
Explore Nature in Park City
As you can see, there is a lot more to Park City than just skiing and snowboarding. Get ready for your upcoming adventure by reserving one of our luxury vacation rentals in the city. You will be steps away from endless excitement only found here.
For many individuals who are employed yet carry a passion for adventure within themselves, work time and well-deserved vacations have often been kept on two very separate parts of the annual calendar. While work is the everyday expectation, vacation is often viewed as that time when work is left behind, and travelers take off for new and exciting destinations.
In 2020, the arrival of COVID-19 on the global scene has changed the work/life balance dramatically. Almost instantaneously, homes were required to transform into offices and those with families were left looking for routes to keeping kids educated and entertained while setting up a makeshift office that would still allow for at-home productivity. Between spotty Zoom calls, online schooling, and attempting to create brand-new schedules, it’s an understatement to say it’s been a struggle for many.
However, within the new sense of inevitable chaos has also come some incredible potential that shouldn’t be overlooked. One of these exciting possibilities comes directly from the new remote-work option in combination with options to travel. As work has transitioned onto a remote platform, employees are no longer required to remain in one place. In fact, as long as work gets done, it can essentially be done from anywhere on the map—including those vacation destinations 2020 initially seemed to erase from the realm of possibility. Instead of limiting yourself to a home office, consider booking a Park City vacation rental fully equipped with those work-at-home features you need, while settling into a destination that inspires the mind and imagination. Remote workers that choose to combine their professional endeavors with fantastic getaway experiences will find that comfort, convenience, and options for fun are available in equal measure—particularly when you set your travel sights on Park City, Utah.

Some might find travel trivial when it’s done in the name of nothing more than a simple vacation. However, what might be missed within this assumption is just how powerful of a tool travel is when it comes to re-centering the mind in a world that tends to work on hyper-speed. Most days, individuals find themselves running from place to place with never enough time or energy to get everything on the to-do list done. Over enough time, this approach to daily life can take its toll both mentally and physically. Enter the importance of travel. Even if you only have a few days to spare, getting out of a normal daily routine and enjoying a new scene, exciting activities and atmosphere can do wonders in the way of revitalizing perspective. If travel has the ability to do this for individuals—how much more effective might it be to plan a Park City corporate retreat and give your employees the communal gift of getting out of the office and enjoying something new?
Office life may be standard for many professionals, but that doesn’t necessarily make it easy. Personnel transitions can cause stress in the workplace, changes in management can make for difficult hurdles, and sometimes, big projects just wear on groups in the long term. For times like these and so many more, planning a fun and refreshing corporate retreat can be a great way to eliminate familiar surroundings and give employees a chance to bond, converse and relax somewhere outside of the office. A corporate retreat can also be a powerful tool when it comes to rewarding a team of professionals for a job well done.
While focusing on the activities that will make a corporate retreat fun is important, the most essential factor might just be picking the perfect place to enjoy. When your team is one that would benefit from a diverse lineup of options for excitement and could really appreciate a scenic view-there’s no place better than Park City, Utah.
