Park City is so much more than a premiere destination for cold-weather enthusiasts. Join us as we share some of our favorite seasonal activities, starting with spring and summer! After the snow has cleared and the town has thawed out from winter, folks are ready to shed some layers and spend their time enjoying the beauty hidden under all of that snow.
- Our list of favorite spring and summer activities starts with a bird’s eye view. One of the best ways to take in your beautiful surroundings while in Park Plaza is to board a hot air balloon. At Park City Balloon Adventures, take a one-hour sunrise mountain flight and view things from the sky. And while you may have to get up early to board your balloon (don’t worry, you get a champagne reward once landed!), we think it’s totally worth it!
- Next on the list, we suggest heading over to Stillman Ranch where you can’t go wrong with any of their available adventures – our favorite is horseback riding! Just outside of Park City, the Stillman Ranch is located on a secluded 9,000 acres of working ranch land. Their excursions are some of the best in town, showing off the amazing Western countryside – plus they offer a wide selection to fit all experiences and age groups! Spend your morning taking a one, two or three-hour ride that will leave you with plenty of time to explore in the afternoon. Interested in a longer excursion? Try a four-hour lunch ride, an overnight pack trip, or a wagon ride complete with a barbecue diner!
- When the weather has really warmed up, there’s plenty of local rivers and reservoirs to cool off in. Water sports are also not in short supply! We’ve got a few favorites in town. If you’re looking to do some rafting, kayaking or even stand up paddleboarding, Destinations Sports and Adventures has got you covered. Never tried these activities before? No worries! An experienced guide accompanies each tour and caters to all individual needs. Thinking of something a little more laid-back to take the kids to? The Aqua X Zone is the perfect spot! Located on the Jordanelle Reservoir, the Aqua X Zone is an inflatable water park that floats along the top of the water.
- Fly Fishing with Park City Anglers is last on our list but definitely not least – and Park City offers an incredible back drop for this unique activity. Enjoy a guided fly fishing trip on one of the local rivers, as well as nearby streams and creeks. This is also a great winter activity too – just remember to bundle up!
