Park City Things To Do
The choices in entertainment and attractions, art and cultural events, and athletic and leisurely activities are limitless in Park City. Famous for its snow, which tops the charts with well over 350 inches, Park City has three unique, world-class ski resorts within five miles of each other: Park City Mountain Resort, Deer Valley Resort, and The Canyons. You can enjoy the thrill of speeding down the same bobsled run used in the 2002 Winter Olympics when you visit the Utah Olympic Park, home of the Olympic bobsled, luge, freestyle aerial, skeleton, and ski jumping competitions. You can also sail through the air at a 33% grade on the Xtreme Zip, world’s steepest zip line, originating 110 feet above ground. With 1,454 hair-raising feet in total length, the k120 zipline reaches a maximum speed of 55 miles per hour with a 435-foot vertical drop.
During the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, the world was introduced to Park City as a skiing and snowboarding destination paradise. However, while skiing and snowboarding may be what Park City is famous for, it's far from the complete picture. Park City is also well known for its excellent golf courses, making it a summer paradise as well. The mountains are even more beautiful once the snow melts, and visitors can ride the tram up and descend on foot, mountain bike, or alpine slide. After a busy day you can unwind at one of Park City’s many day spas or health clubs, try a little hot air ballooning or cross-country skiing, or just kick back and catch a play or independent film. Park City prides itself on its cultural diversity, you won’t want to miss out on a visit to its many galleries and theaters.
Park City offers a variety of year-round activities for all ages. In close proximity to Park City, Jordanelle, Deer Creek, Echo, East Canyon, and Rockport reservoirs offer a wide variety of activities for outdoor enthusiasts, including water skiing, sailing, fishing, sailboarding, and swimming. Furthermore, with over 244,000 acres of wilderness, the High Uinta Mountains provide an ideal get-a-way for those who enjoy hiking, camping, and fishing among alpine lakes and snow-capped mountains.
