Despite being known as the perfect ski town, Park City has so much more to offer throughout all seasons. No matter the time of year, this mountain playground nestled in the Wasatch Back has something for everyone. Park City offers the perfect blend of modern resort living, with luxury conveniences and accommodations, mixed with its genuine old-town charm fenced by miles of outdoors waiting to be challenged.
Action is in abundance and hard to avoid during winters in Park City – from skiing and snowboarding to snowshoeing and skate skiing, to exploring Main Street and Sundance Film Festival. Come summer, the once glittering winter slopes featured in the 2002 Winter Olympics transform into a copious landscape filled with hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and camping. Here are four unique Park City events we recommend to liven up your team’s mountain town experience.
BEACH DAY – Just 15 minutes from old town Park City and located above the beautiful Heber Valley in Wasatch County, Jordanelle State Park is home to Jordanelle Reservoir. The picturesque mountain setting offers an array of recreational opportunities, such as picnicking, fishing, boating, water sports, swimming, hiking and mountain biking.
During a beach day retreat, you can indulge in the bounty of the reservoir and float atop the water on top-of-the-line wakeboard boats, personal watercrafts (jet skis), pontoon boats, or fishing boats. For those adventurers seeking a little extra thrill throughout the day, waterskiing, wakeboarding, and tubing are available as well.
OLYMPIC PARK – Whether you’re looking for an individual outing or an all-out team building experience, the Utah Olympic Park is one Park City event that is sure to please your athletic side!
Utah Olympic Park was a competition venue for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games for Nordic Jumping and the sliding sports of Bobsled, Skeleton and Luge. The nearly 400-acre Park features a mixture of sporting facilities and visitor areas sure to provide an adrenalin-inducing Olympic experience.
A SKIIER’S DREAM HOME – Imagine a home, dreamed of by skiers and built for skiers, located on the slopes of the #1 Rated ski resort in North America. Though it might sound too good to be true, this 14,000 square foot dream home exists at the top of Deer Valley’s Little Baldy Peak. At nearly 8,000 feet in elevation, the home offers stunning 360-degree views, and is available for you to create a memorable venue space that is unique in every way.
At the heart of the home is its gourmet kitchen – great for cooking demonstrations and wine tasting. The dining room and large 4,500 square feet heated deck offers guests a wonderful one-of-a-kind dining experience with stunning views of the Wasatch Mountains, the Jordanelle Reservoir, and Deer Valley Mountain.
THE MONTAGE DEER VALLEY – Montage Deer Valley is a luxury resort located atop Empire Pass and nestled against the forested slopes of Deer Valley ski resort. Carefully designed to meet LEED principles, the hotel takes its cue from the environment, offering dramatic views of the wooded valleys and mountain tops
The resort boasts 249 ultra-luxurious accommodations, 81 private residences, three restaurants, two lounges, indoor and outdoor pools, a 35,000-square-foot spa and fitness center, and 17,000 square feet for conferences and celebrations. Generous pre-function space with floor-to-ceiling windows and 35,000 square feet of lawns and terraces complement two elegant ballrooms and four smaller meeting rooms.
During the winter, guests have the luxury of ski-in, ski-out access to North Americas #1 ski resort. While there, ski concierges will maintain guests’ ski equipment and arrange for lift tickets and lessons. Additional winter activities include ice-skating, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and sleigh rides.
In the warmer months, the resort’s surrounding scenic trails, forested valleys, and rivers support hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, fly-fishing, rafting, and more. Meanwhile, the hotel offers a variety of unique experiences for guests of all ages, from landscape painting and photography to wildlife spotting, culinary demonstrations, and wine-tasting seminars.
