Park City

Park City is designed for year-round exploration with each season revealing a different side of this magnificent playground. Winter months bring the Greatest Snow On Earth® to owners with unprecedented access to three world-class ski resorts; while the spring thaw uncovers a dazzling display of wildflowers and another world of recreation with championship golf, fly-fishing, white water rafting and over 400 miles of stunning trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. Both Main Street in Historic Old Town and the modern Kimball Junction retail area include a vibrant festival culture and unique boutiques, art galleries, dining and nightlife options to suit urban explorers of all tastes.

 

Park City has three major ski resorts: Canyons Resort, Deer Valley Resort, and Park City Mountain Resort. The Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley Resorts were the major locations for snowboarding and skiing events at the 2002 Winter Olympics. 

Additionally Park City is the long running home of The Sundance Film Festival, home of the United States Ski Team, training center for the Australian Freestyle Ski Team, home to The Utah Olympic Park, at which the 2002 Olympic bobsled/ skeleton/ luge track was located.  Several outdoor-oriented businesses such as backcountry.com, Rossignol USA, and Skullcandy have their headquarters in Park City.

Park City hosts many upscale luxury retailers, dance clubs, bars, and restaurants, so shop, dance, drink, eat, and be merry.  National Forests, pristine mountain lakes, reservoirs, and world-class fly-fishing rivers are yours to enjoy.  Lest we not forget, hiking and mountain biking trails are almost un-countable. If golf is your game, not to worry, public, semi-private and private courses are numerous.

Park City summer temperatures hover around 85 degrees during the day and drop to a mild 60-65 degrees in the evening. Sweaters or sweat–shirts recommended!  Utah is the second driest state in the country so no humidity. Good for your hair, not so great for your skin.

When you arrive in Salt Lake City, you’ll be at an altitude of about 4500 feet, Park City is about 7000 feet so drink plenty of water (beer doesn’t count) and eat dark chocolate to help mitigate any adverse altitude effect.

In 2008, Park City was named by Forbes Traveler Magazine among one of the 20 'prettiest towns' in the United States. In 2011, the town was awarded a Gold-level Ride Center designation from the International Mountain Bicycling Association for its mountain bike trails, amenities and community. It continues to be published in top ski, cycling and adventure magazines across the world.  In 2013 Outside magazine voted Park City, Utah “Best Town Ever”.  Come and see why!
