skiing at park city ski resort

Utah's winter ski season is getting off to a great start. Another significant winter storm passed through the Wasatch Mountains earlier this week, bringing year-to-date snow totals (for the 22/23 season) up to 100" inches. Temperatures have been cold, allowing the resorts to blow artificial snow while receiving a blizzard of Utah's famous fresh powder.

Deer Valley and Park City are starting to accumulate a solid base, while the resorts in the Cottonwood Canyons got pummeled. Our early-season snowpack is way above normal, allowing most of Utah's ski resorts to open early. Looks as though it will be a great year!

Trick or Treat Halloween on Main Street Park City

Halloween on Park City's Historic Main Street was named one of the top Halloween celebrations in the country by Travel and Leisure magazine. This super popular annual event is not only for the moms, dads, and kids, but also a great time for your four-legged family members as well.

Main Street Trick-or-Treating runs from 3:00-5:00 p.m. with most Main Street merchants generously handing out candy and participating in the fun. This early time allows the kids to get out before dark, and before the fall season cold sets in. Every year, celebrating Halloween in the mountains, you never know if it will be a beautiful sunny warm day, or freezing wind and blowing snow. We have experienced many versions of both!

Getting to Main Street & parking can be

provo river utah kayak trip

Are you looking for some outdoor fun for the entire family? Floating Utah's beautiful Provo River is a great way to beat the heat. The river meanders down a stunning canyon with Mount Timpanogos as a backdrop. It's one of the closest places to river rafting near Park City. The season typically runs from May through September.

There are numerous ways to float the river; you can raft, kayak, paddleboard, or tube your way down. High school and college-age kids tend to enjoy tubing more than other age groups. With tubing, you are more exposed to the chilly water and scratches from twigs and branches that line the shores. The inflatable raft is a better option if you have a group with older grandparents or younger kids.

Park City July 4th Celebration Parade

For 2021, Park City is changing up the schedule for one of our most popular holidays. Independence Day in Park City is widely regarded as one of the best times to visit. Over the years, this holiday has seen packed crowds, throughout the day, with many family-friendly activities. Park City has decided to space the holiday celebration over three days to space out the crowd levels as we emerge from the COVID pandemic. This year, the 4th of July falls on a Sunday. The famous Park City Parade will be on Friday the 2nd. For Saturday the 3rd, we'll have the Air Force Flyover and outdoor concerts at Park City's Canyons Village.
