When talking with a Park City transplant, you may hear the delcaration, “We came here for the winter, but stayed because of the summers.” Although it’s sounds cliché, it could not be truer. Inspired by the surrounding aspen covered mountains with miles and miles of trails to explore, near perfect temperatures with cool breezes and vibrant sapphire blue-sky days, it is no surprise that so many people who visit Park City end up calling it home. Our mountain community, nestled within the Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains, is host to scenic chairlift rides, alpine roller coasters, adrenaline-packed ziplines, outdoor concerts, arts & cultural events, culinary activities and much much more. With no shortage of activities to fulfill your summer vacation, Park City Lodging is here to help guide your summer fun with the following sneak peek into what Park City has to offer in the warmer months.
Boasting over 400 (!) miles of trails designated to non-motorized use, Park City offers some of the finest alpine trails in the West. The first ever gold-certified ride center by the International Mountain Biking Association, you’ll simply have to come check the hype out for yourself. From taking in the stunning wildflowers on a family friendly wander to zipping down perfectly laid single track, take a step further in discovering why Park City is the premier mountain biking and hiking destination!
Is there a better way to spend a hot summer day than enjoying the crystal clear mountain waters around Park City? Whether you’re looking for a family-friendly white water experience on the Weber River, a taste of the Blue Ribbon fishing of the Provo River; to let loose with some water skiing on the Jordanelle Reservoir, or enjoy a peaceful SUP ride on the Deer Valley Ponds, Park City has all the thirst quenching water action to ensure your summer stays cool.
Beautiful blue skies and clean air beckon you to fly! Reach new heights as you soar above our mountain resorts on a tantalizing zip line ride. Or take a leisurely chairlift ride to take in the beauty of our mountain resorts. Book a hot air balloon ride to enjoy an eagle’s eye view of the beautiful Wasatch and Uinta Mountain Ranges.
There is nothing quite as impressive as golfing in the mountains — driving that ball and glancing up to see an expanse of snowy peaks rising thousands of feet into the air. The golf courses near Park City rival the best in terms of maintenance, difficulty and scenic beauty. With 7 gorgeous, 18 hole, public courses within a 21 mile radius, you can easily plan to hit them all during your stay. Park City Lodging’s concierge can book your golf reservation 30 days out adding a huge benefit to customers and owners.
Regardless of when you’re coming to enjoy the Park City summer, there is always a community event to take advantage of and get the most out of your vacation.
