If there is a single season of the year that you should visit Park City, it has to be winter. Park City is home to some of Utah’s greatest skiing conditions and slopes. In addition to skiing and snowboarding, you can find a variety of activities that will make for a memorable vacation getaway. Take a look at how you can plan for the best winter adventure with these Park City activities:
Hit the Slopes
We cannot overstate how incredible skiing and snowboarding are here up in Park City. For decades, the region has been home to many Winter Olympic athletes who continue to train the next generation. Park City Mountain offers everything you need for another thrilling ride down the slopes. This local mountain features over 7,300 acres of skiable terrain making it the largest ski resort in the country. Park City Mountain is known for powdery snow, towering trees, and moguls to perfect your skills. There are so many slopes that you can ski or snowboard all day and still not hit the same trail twice. Beginners can start with an introductory lesson that will help them understand the basics. Shallow slopes will then perfect their skill before attempting steeper slopes that are perfect for experienced riders. Speaking of experience, Park City Mountain also features winter parks that consist of rails, half-pipes, steep jumps, and fixed features allowing you to show off your skills. Park City Mountain has everything you need from lift tickets, rental equipment, lessons to take care of all your skiing and snowboarding needs. Best of all, our vacation rentals are just a short distance away from the mountain!
Hit the Winter Tundra by Snowmobile
The surrounding region is just begging to be explored during the winter season. You can do just that by booking a snowmobile reservation with North Forty Escapes here in Park City. Their 10,000-acre ranch lets you have plenty of private land to explore by snowmobile. These vehicles are top of the line and are perfect for families looking for a rush. If snowmobiling is not for you then book a dogsledding experience instead. These huskies are bred for the thrill of mushing and will be overjoyed for some pets after your ride is over. Now that is one unique way to see Park City!
Hit the Mountain Bike Trails
Just because it is winter does not mean you cannot enjoy the outdoor trails here in Park City. Sure, you can hike the trails on foot, but where is the fun in that? Instead, reserve a snow bike that is designed to take you across the snow with ease. Park City has over 400 miles of preserved mountain bike trails. These snow bikes feature fat tires that will allow you to keep pedaling. Since it is cold outside you will want to stick with your winter ski gear; anything that is water resistant is always a plus. Popular trails can be found around Willow Creek and Round Valley. You can find rental bikes at Jans Mountain Outfitters and All Seasons Adventures right here in Park City.
Beat the Cold in Park City Museum
If you are looking to escape the cold, head on over to Park City Museum where you can find incredible exhibits that highlight the origins of the city. You will learn how mining brought together the original inhabitants of Park City; the original jail cell is found still intact here at the museum. Hands on activities are perfect for the kids while short films will educate everyone in the family. Stop by the Park City Museum Wednesday through Sunday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Hit the Escape Room
There is nothing better than coming together as a family and overcoming the challenges found at Escape Room Park City. This local attraction is like similar escape rooms, you are placed into a locked room with a handful of clues and are given an hour to get out. This activity will put your brains to the test as you navigate for thoughtfully placed clues around the room. Escape Room Park City features a variety of rooms to choose from all with unique and exciting themes. The staff on hand will be there to help you every step of the way and document your triumphs.
