A really great way to experience the wonderful winter scenery in Park City and surrounding areas is to enjoy a fun horse-drawn sleigh ride. There are several companies that offer this exciting activity.
The Snowed Inn Sleigh Company is located at the Park City Mountain Resort and offers rides with or without dinners. The sleigh rides leave from a location next to the Payday lift.
Sleigh rides without dinner last 25 to 30 minutes and begin at 5 p.m. each day.
The dinner option offers three ride times and seatings every evening. You’ll enjoy a tasty dinner complete with live music.
