Park City, a mountain ski town nestled about 7000 feet above sea level in the Wasatch mountain range, is famous for its winter season. With two world-class ski destinations, Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain Resort, many avid skiiers flock to the area to enjoy Utah’s renowned “Greatest Snow on Earth”. As we move through November into December and ski season begins, PureHaven Homes wants to highlight the Winter activities in Park City that make it such an amazing place to call home.
For the Skiier:
It’s no wonder that we would open this list with skiing; Park City boasts some of the best powder in the world, with two resorts to choose from. Park City’s transformation into high-class ski town started with the first chair lift installation in 1946; since then, the “Greatest Snow on Earth” has been falling on Deer Valley Resort
, voted best ski resort in America for 2018 by Skimag.com
, and Park City Mountain
, the largest ski resort in the country. From groomers to backcountry, terrain parks to bunny hills, you will find indisputably amazing turns in Park City.
For the Non-Skiier:
Despite Park City making its name as a ski town, it has plenty of options available for those who don’t ski, or those who want to try something new. In our past seasonal activity blog posts, we’ve mentioned that fly fishing
is a sport that’s available year-round, with plenty of rivers teeming with trout around the Park City/Heber area. Other standard winter activities, like snowshoeing
, ice skating
, snow tubing
, and snowmobiling
are elevated to their full potential with the breathtaking outdoor surroundings of the Wasatch. If you’re an animal lover, guided dog sledding tours
are available from a number of professional companies in the area, and if you’re a mountain biker missing the trails, snow biking
is a great way to keep your passion alive for the winter.
Winter activities will soon be at their peak, and it’s always a good idea to plan ahead and make the most of the season. For those wanting to make the Park City/Heber Valley area a more permanent residence, let PureHaven Homes help you build the getaway of your dreams.
