After a vacation in Park City, you'll truly feel refreshed. And its natural and city views will end up on the picture wall or shelf in your living room. Touted as the perfect mountain town and as having the “Greatest Snow on Earth”, Park City is a dream. There is not a shortage of places to visit, things to do even in the coldest time of the year.
In fact, the snowiest of winters are the recommended times to visit this town. You could find yourself prepping up the gear to ski down the slope of the Park City Mountain. Or taking a stroll on the Historic Main Street, the city’s refurbished remnant from the days of silver mining and the main point of access to any part in the city. Maybe attend an art exhibition or if lucky you could earn a chance to be at the Sundance Film Festival (brought to Park City by the legendary movie actor Robert Red-Ford). You could even be sitting among a group of friends or on a date with a beloved satiating your culinary desires at a cozy pub or an exquisite fine dining restaurant!
The Lure of Snow
There are some who permanently move to Park City to fulfill their passion for skiing. While many others visit in the winters to partake in the sport. Park City has two world-class ski resorts, Deer Valley Resort, and Park City Mountain Resort. Deer Valley Resort currently boasts itself as the number one ski resort, in North America, as declared by the SKI Magazine. Park City Mountain Resort allows snowboarding too along with skiing.
Planning a ski trip requires careful thought about the clothing and luggage that you should carry. It is important to pack light. But also have the necessary insulator jackets and lowers which are lightweight to ensure maximum mobility. It is also necessary to wear thermal winter face masks, goggles, and mittens. Once you are ready, you can step out from the comfort of your plush and exquisitely decorated vacation rental.
If your primary purpose is skiing, you should opt for a ski in/ski out rental lodging. Like Park City-Woodside Ski Estate or Deer Valley Ultimate Mansion, which are in close proximity of the popular skiing points. And also are not far from the main point of attraction in the city, the Historic Main Street.
Even better, if you are in for a complete luxury experience, you could try a luxury hotel like Waldorf Astoria! Which offers the finest accommodation with outdoor coal pits around which you could gather around and make smores. Or if all that is out of your budget, you can go for vacation rentals offered by CuddlyNest. With the most budget-friendly, luxurious deals, it's the best you'll ever get! And don't forget, you could ride on the Frostwood Gondola chairlift! Which comes equipped with heated cabins that transport the visitors to the Park City Ski resort.
Finally, once you reach the start point for your descent along the well-paved snowy trail, there is no feeling better than the anticipation of the adventure that awaits you. Imagine the adrenaline rush you feel as you slide down the massive white landscape! Your body leaping and falling against the bumps in the trail, your vision unable to comprehend the sights moving at a fast pace. Skiing may not interest you but don’t be disappointed as a lot of companies offer guided tours of other snow activities. Like Alpine Coaster (a coaster built along the slopes of the Alpine mountains) dog sledding, snowshoeing, horse-drawn sleigh rides and snowmobiling. Perhaps, nothing can beat the fun and frolic of engaging in a snowball throwing contest with your loved ones.
The Seductive Summers
When the thick snow melts in the summers, the rivers in neighboring valleys like Provo and Weber fill to the brim and teem with fish. Fly fishing on these rivers becomes a favorite pastime for some. Exploring the city on foot is another great option. And for slightly longer distances, the well-connected free public transport provides cheap accessibility. On your exploratory tour, you may come across an escape room studio from which you have to find a way out or you could chance upon a free concert in the city center.
Then, of course. there are a lot of shopping places you could visit and at Tanger Outlet Center you could avail some bargains on brands. You could visit the Utah Olympic Park, the 2002 venue for the Winter Olympics now converted into a public park. Providing an opportunity for adventure lovers to bobsled and ski jump without the snow and perform some intense rope activity courses. You could also hike on multiple trails surrounding the Park City center. There is also a chance to avail a hot air balloon ride being operated by Park City Balloon Adventures and Skywalker Balloon Company.
Perhaps, you fancy reading a book while perched on a comfy chair and sipping on coffee. Head to the coffee/bookshops like Atticus; as the name suggests the ambiance of this shop harks back to the famous piece of Southern literature “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee. You may instead grab a hot chocolate from The Rocky Mountain Chocolate shop and head to the Dolly’s bookstore. The ambiance of the bookstore is perfect with soft jazz music playing in the background. And helpful staff ready to suggest books as per your interests.
A feast for Food lovers
Skiing in winters or exploring the outdoors in summers can surely work up your appetite. And you need to devour on a feast! Luckily, there is no dearth of food options in Park City. Harboring cuisines and dishes from all over the world coupled with distilleries with reputations as aged as the liquor they sell, Park City food scene is like the host’s loaded dining table at a very large and extravagant one-dish party.
