Things To Do On And Off The Hill

Back to Park City

Looking for winter fun off the mountain? Pursue new perspectives by touring this winter wonderland on a dog sled, snowmobile, snowshoe hike or hot air balloon ride. If you’re daring, hop on the bobsled at Utah Olympic Park and take the ride of a lifetime! If you enjoy being on the mountain and would like something different, cruise down zip lines or the alpine coaster, go tubing or work on your fitness by Nordic skiing.

 

Cross-Country Skiing

Fly Fishing

In Park City, you’re never far from a crystal-clear river or stream. Grab some waders and a pole, and spend an afternoon-or a week-tapping your line across the cool mountain waters.

Insider Tip: Fishing may seem odd in the winter – but it’s one of the most serene times of year to be on the river. Fish are hungry all year! Put on some layers and wade into the nearby rivers and see how many trout you can catch and release.

Ice Skating

The Park City Ice Arena is nestled in the hillsides of Park City. Built in 2006, it’s a wonderful addition to all of the winter activities Park City has to offer. Gather friends and family for an afternoon or evening of fun on the ice.

Insider Tip: Park City has an Olympic-sized hockey rink! Try something completely different such as broomball. Confused? It’s hockey but less padding needed, in sneakers and with a broom-shaped stick.
