Before you know it, winter will be over, and with it comes a blooming spring season. COVID-19 has made it difficult for most to get out for a winter holiday due to travel restrictions. Fortunately, many states are returning to normal, making it easier than ever this past year to visit Park City. Our Utah home is one of the best places in the state for winter sports and all-around fun vacation. If you are looking for a great time to visit, look no further than the upcoming Easter in Park City. It will still feel like winter up in Park City, allowing you to make up for any missed holiday traveling. The combination of exciting spring activities, our luxury vacation rentals, and unique Easter events will make it a vacation to remember.
Winter or Spring, It All Feels the Same
If you are looking to catch up on any missed winter sports or activities, Park City has you covered this Easter holiday. The daily high temps in Park City in April hover around the low to mid 50s, letting you get in a last-minute winter feeling. Since the temps are colder than most areas of the country, you will find that the ski season also lasts longer here. Park City Mountain typically ends the ski season in the middle of April. Most visitors come earlier in the season to hit the mountain, so you should find it quieter than usual. This is perfect for those looking to get in as many runs as possible during their stay!
Luxury Vacation Rentals
Having a bad lodging experience can ruin any vacation getaway you have been looking forward to. No one wants to stay in a tiny hotel room, especially if there are multiple individuals in your family. Instead of booking the minimum try out one of our luxury vacation rentals perfect for your upcoming Easter stay. Each of our properties is professionally cleaned before any guests come to stay. You will notice that everything in the home will be ready for your arrival so all you have to do is unpack and relax. Our vacation rentals also come in a variety of sizes letting you pick and choose what style of home you want. Smaller families or couples can enjoy a modern condo just off Historic Main Street. Families with multiple children or extended family joining them will love the space in our full size and luxury homes.

No will not find cookie cutter homes in our selection of luxury vacation rentals. Instead, you will find homes that offer incredible amenities making your Easter stay one to remember. There is plenty offered to help you relax including flat screen TVs, modern and comfortable furnishings, extended patio decks and yards, and modern appliances.

Each room comes supplied with fine linens and the bathrooms have all the toiletries too.
Our more luxury rentals feature even more fine amenities that local hotels and resorts cannot compare to. Enjoy hot tubs perfect for the chilly nights in April. Game rooms let the kids (and adults too) spend hours having a blast with each other. Some of our rentals even come with ski-in/ski-out access so you can hit the slopes in just a few minutes from your stay. Now that is stylish and comfortable way to stay in Park City for Easter!
Spring and Easter Activities
Of course, it would not be Easter without access to enjoyable activities in Park City. As mentioned, you can take advantage of Park City Mountain one last time before the slopes close for the season; check out the rental shop on the mountain for any rental gear needs you have. Enjoy other outdoor activities such as cross-country skiing and fishing. Local restaurants will feature a wonderful Easter brunch so get your appetite worked up!
Some smaller Easter events will still be taking place this spring. Head over to Matt Knoop Par for their annual Easter egg hunt from 11:00 AM to noon. The Kimball Art Center is showcasing their Easter Celebration on Saturday from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM where children can learn how to make their own Easter eggs.

Park City, Utah is one of the most popular ski regions in the entire United States. Located approximately 32 miles southeast of the capital, Salt Lake City, it is known for winter sports, ski resorts, and the renowned Sundance Film Festival. The two major resorts include Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain Resort, in which the latter is the largest ski region in the U.S. Both receive thousands of visitors each year; however, it is a rare treat to ski on the Easter holiday or any time during the month of April. This mountain town with a population of nearly 9,000 people offers plenty of excitement during other seasons as well, especially spring and summer when the foliage blooms on the hillsides. If you happen to be visiting for Easter in Park City, check out some of the things you can do below!
Like most cities in America celebrating the Easter holiday, the day typically begins with some coffee and attendance at a church service. To get that coffee, there is no shortage of coffee shops located along Main Street. Try Java Cow Coffee & Ice Cream or the Pink Elephant Coffee Shop; both offer additional goodies such as homemade pastries and drinks such as Thai Tea and kombucha. When the time for breakfast/brunch arrives, Park City does not disappoint. In fact, this small town offers a wide range of restaurants, from casual establishments to fine dining restaurants.
If you have the chance to make a reservation for breakfast, Harvest comes highly recommended by locals. With items such as Toasted Paleo Banana Bread, Smashed Avocado on Sourdough and the Buddha Bowl of Goodness, it is easy to see why with the line of diners out the door. For more of an upscale brunch, Bartolo’s prepares excellent meals fit for a king or queen. Try the savory veggie waffle, the massive Blueberry Dutch Baby Pancake or the Smoked Trout Eggs Benedict. Each one features locally sourced ingredients, and when you add an order of potato wedges alongside a piquant bacon aioli, Easter brunch does not get any better than this. The award-winning Tupelo Park City restaurant highlights the bounty of Utah, from the locally sourced vegetables to the impeccable service. Everything from start to finish here will undoubtedly impress everyone. The Smoked Rainbow Trout Toast and the Local Burrata are two dishes that merit a visit to Tupelo any day of the week.
After brunch, explore the town along Main Street, where you can shop local and stretch the legs to burn off some calories. If time permits and you wish to find out more about Park City, visit the local museum that recounts tales about the origins of the town and its mining history. The Park City Museum also functions as a visitor center, so if you have any questions or need any tips, feel free to inquire with the friendly folk inside. For a Sunday drive, take the Guardsman Pass Scenic Backway to witness firsthand the grandeur that is the Wasatch Mountain Range. The Kimball Art Center offers more educational and cultural attractions, and if you have the kids in tow, the center provides classes in painting, drawing, animation, photography and other types of visual arts.
If you seek to explore the backcountry from a bicycle, many people consider Park City to be one of the best places to mountain bike in the entire country. Moreover, Park City provides many outfitters in town that will have all the gear you need, including bike rentals. If you feel so inclined, a day trip to nearby Salt Lake City is always an exciting adventure, especially when the weather allows unfettered views of both the front range of the Wasatch Mountains as well as the back range.
Bars & Pubs
Park City has a wide range of establishments that serve exceptional handcrafted cocktails and craft beers that hold their own with any others around the U.S. Stay on Main Street and visit some of the pubs and bars, because you never know what you might find. For those who prefer something stronger than beer, the High West Distillery and Saloon is a great spot! Some of their popular spirits include the American Prairie Bourbon, with notes of sweet honey nougat, or the spicy Double Rye! which offers hints of anise and mint. They also feature seasonal releases, so a trip to High West is always a new experience. No Name Saloon is another great spot, with a friendly atmosphere that even includes outdoor shuffleboard and an upstairs patio.
