People often think of Park City in terms of its two peak seasons, Winter and Summer, yet locals and savvy visitors often favor the Fall. More than just bridging the gap between summer fun and ski slopes opening, Park City’s sunny days, crisp mountain air, red and yellow leaves mixed in with the evergreens on the hillsides provide a fabulous backdrop for some of its most entertaining events.
