Adventures on and off the mountain slopes in Park City
Year-Round Fun on the Mountain
Known as a winter destination, Park City is home to two world-class resorts, Deer Valley and Park City Mountain. Park City Mountain features the largest lift-accessed terrain in the United States. With over 300 trails, 41 lifts, 8 terrain parks, one super pipe and one mini pipe, Park City Mountain has adventure for all abilities and ages. Meanwhile, Deer Valley Resort is recognized as the first North American ski resort to provide the first-class service of a five-star hotel. Not surprisingly, it’s consistently ranked number one in a variety of categories by readers of SKI Magazine. In addition to the world-class skiing, visitors to Park City can enjoy plenty of winter fun off the mountain such as dog sledding, snowmobiling, snow tubing and Nordic skiing.
Looking to visit in spring, summer or fall? Go hiking and biking on 700 kilometers of trails, or try hot-air ballooning, horseback riding and fly-fishing. Ride an alpine slide down a mountain, go boating and stand-up paddle boarding on a pristine lake or stream, and fly through a forest on a zip line.

There are also a variety of adventure activities and two free museums to explore, Alf Engen Ski Museum and Eccles 2002 Olympic Winter Games Museum.

Built in 1905, it was originally known as The Alamo. Sample a flight of craft brews at Wasatch Brew Pub or Park City Brewing Company. Finally, relax at one of the many spas around town or go for retail therapy at Tanger Outlets.
In 2006, the High West Distillery became Utah’s first legal distillery since 1870. Its High West Saloon, a ski-in gastro-distillery, opened the same year in the Old Town district of Park City.

In 1963, subway cars carted skiers to the slopes via a dark, cold, wet one-hour ride through old mining tunnels in Treasure Mountain, now known as Park City Mountain. Skiers then used a mining elevator to lift them 533 meters to the base.
