Host to the 2002 Winter Olympics, Parkites enjoy the perfect winter ski slopes and blue skies at Deer Valley or the largest resort in the country, Park City Mountain Resort, events at the Utah Olympic Park, cross country skiing in town on 70 kilometers of groomed trails, snow shoeing under a full moon at Swaner Nature Preserve or skiing untracked powder in backcountry terrain.
Summer is one of the reasons people choose to make Park City their new home. Our local golf scene now boasts 15 superb golf courses, all within minutes of town. Legends of the game, like Pete Dye, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio and Mark O’Meara were offered great pieces of land to let loose their imaginations, and stamp their creative golf signature designs on and propelled Park City into a mountain golf mecca.
In and around Park City, you’ll find lakes and rivers that provide opportunities galore for river rafting, sailing, water skiing, kayaking, standup paddle boarding, tubing and boating, and you’re never far from crystal-clear “Blue Ribbon” rivers and streams for fishing.
Park City also enjoys recognition as the world’s first IMBA Gold Level Ride Center designation thanks to over 400 miles of biking and hiking trails with an abundance of challenges and natural jaw-dropping scenery.
The year-round charm of historic Main Street offers a unique combination of sophisticated restaurants and shops coupled with small town living. It is the heart and soul of our mountain town and home to all that is fun and happening. Home to renowned festivals and competitions throughout the year including the Sundance Film Festival, Park City Arts Festival, National and International winter sports competitions; there is never a shortage of things to do in Park City, no matter your age or interests. In today’s Park City, the riches lie above the ground and Old Town is the gem among the riches.
