You can even plan a relaxing winter weekend getaway with your friends or your partner!

Explore Historic Park City

Stroll down Main Street into the Historic District of Park City. There are tons of shops and restaurants to visit; take a look around the Park City Museum and learn about the town’s unique history.

Heber Valley Train

Located about 25 minutes from Park City Mountain is the Heber Valley railroad. The Deer Creek Express is a 90-minute roundtrip, offering amazing views of the Wasatch Mountains and Deer Creek Reservoir. This is a great way to enjoy the scenery while staying warm if you’re visiting in the winter!

Sleigh Ride Dinner

Take an authentic horse-drawn sleigh ride up the mountain to the Snowed Inn. You’ll get blankets to wrap up in on the sleigh, and the inn will be heated and waiting for you with blazing fireplaces and hot cider. Here, you’ll receive a delicious 3-course meal with live music and pleasant service. I highly recommend this for all ages!

Olympic Park

Have you ever dreamed of competing in the winter Olympics? Stop at the Olympic Park and you can bobsled on the actual track used in the 2002 Salt Lake Olympic Winter Games! Just note that you must be at least 16 years old to ride, but talk about an epic winter outing.

Homestead Crater

Swimming? In winter? That’s possible (and enjoyable) at the Homestead Crater. Enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and even scuba diving at this geothermal pool hidden under limestone. The water stays at a constant 90-96 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes for a nice mid-winter dip.


Want to soak in the mountain views and fresh air without skis or a snowboard? Pick up a pair of snowshoes and you can leisurely make your way through the beautiful trails, both groomed and ungroomed. Take a look at White Pine Touring for rentals and trail recommendations, as well as guided tours.
