If you are looking to get out of your Park City accommodation and have a great time in the resort, then here is a list of some of the options available to you. There are activities, museums, and even the accommodation itself that make the area unique and bring in a great number of visitors a year. Following up just a few things on this list will make you trip memorable.

Skiing and Snowboarding

The winter sports here truly are World-class, with the resort offering 3,300 skiable acres of snow for visitors to explore and test themselves against. This is the main reason most people come here, so the skiing must be great! There are 116 runs that primarily feature intermediate runs; however the range of beginner and advanced slopes will keep any level of skier entertained. With 19 lifts you won’t be stranded on the mountain anywhere, and will find getting around easy.

Activities

So you aren’t into skiing or snowboarding, but still want to do activities to fill you day? Park City has you covered with things to do that will make you want to head out from your Park City accommodation as early as possible. You can try your hand at winter fly-fishing, if that is something that interests you and you are looking for a quieter break. However, those seeking other forms of adrenaline will find it in the snow-tubing and snow-mobiling on offer, as well as the hot air balloons that carry passengers over the mountain.

Arts and Culture

Perhaps you aren’t into sports, but the rest of you family are. Park City still has you covered, with museums and galleries that document the history of the area and its develop today. Similarly, those looking for true relaxation can find it in the spas and salons on offer in the town that will provide a welcome break to some after a few hard days of skiing. Another cultural activity is to take a walk down the historic main street, somewhere that can be easily accessed from most Park City accommodation. With all of these offerings, those who prefer culture over the active lifestyle are catered for and still visit Park City with their adrenaline-hunting family.

Olympic Memories

Having hosted the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, the remnants of this have been developed to open the Utah Winter Park. This is a great experience for those who are both active or those who prefer to relax. The fantasy camp allows visitors to experience Winter Olympic sports and get a taste of the athletes’ experience. This a great place to visit whether you have kids or not.

With all that is on offer at Park City, this list barely touches the edges. However, taking just some of the suggestions from above will make you stay memorable, making you get up early, leave you Park City accommodation and head out to see what new activities you can try that day.
