Snow Tubing... Fun for the whole family!
Now entering it's seventh season, Gorgoza Park offers lighted, lift-served tubing and mini snowmobiles. It's a great adventure for all ages. And, when it gets a little chilly you can head to our warming yurt for snacks and to rest up for more fun.
Now, what sets this resort apart from other tubing facilities is the lack of work needed to have fun. No more climbing up the hills to reach your preferred starting point. At Gorgoza Park, all you have to do is sit down on your tube and let a tow cable pull you to the top of the mountain. The smooth ride up the hill is fast and enjoyable and the rest it provided while heading to the top made it as pleasurable as the ride down the slope. The only required work is standing up and walking back to the beginning of the tow-ride. Gorgoza Park is conveniently located off I-80 and easy to get to.
Conveniently located 10-minutes from Park City just off I-80, offering lift-served tubing. Mini snowmobiles for kids 5-12 are also available. Open daily, 1 p.m.-8 p.m.
Cross-country skiing on groomed trails is a favorite winter sport in Park City. In addition, Park City has hundreds of roads and trails in its National Forests and on BLM land which are ideal for cross-country skiing. There are mountain top routes, tracks through snow-dusted red rock, historic trails... even some of our snowed-in golf courses get into the act. Backcountry skiers should be well-prepared, and should check weather and avalanche forecasts prior to setting out. Many agree that Utah's backcountry is some of the most accessible and has the best snow. Park City offers several options for this demanding and fulfilling sport. Try out our groomed trails or take a custom tour under the Rocky Mountain skyline.
