We are working to preserve, protect, and nurture this place for future generations to enjoy. With our close relationships to nonprofits and partners focused on climate, together we’re securing the future of our breathtaking lands. Explore the initiatives and programs supporting our place:

Park City Climate Fund

The Park City Climate Fund aims to engage greater Park City community members in implementing local, high-impact climate solutions that also have the potential to be effective in similar communities.

“We see global warming not as an inevitability but as an invitation to build, innovate, and effect change, a pathway that awakens creativity, compassion, and genius.” —Paul Hawken, environmentalist, author, leading activist, and founder of Project Drawdown.

Park City Activities:

With hiking, biking, or skiing trails (cross-country or downhill) being right outside your door, there is always something fun to do in the great outdoors. There are other small towns with an outdoor lifestyle but no one offers close proximity to a major city as do to Salt Lake City. No place beats Park City for the convenience and not mention, the greatest lifestyle on Earth!


1.SKI:

With ten ski areas less than an hour from Salt Lake City's airport, and incredible backcountry terrain, powder-blessed Utah is arguably the best ski destination in North America.

Bring your ski boots and apparel, but leave your skis at home-

If you’re fortunate to hit a big storm, then you’ll want wide powder skis. That said, even in Utah there can be several consecutive weeks of high-pressure systems that yield sunny skies and no snowfall. If that’s the case, you’ll need either a pair of mid-fat, all-mountain skis, which will handle chopped-up snow and bumps better, or, if groomed trails are your jam, narrow carving skis. Ski Butlers, founded in Park City, rents a wide array of Rossignols and will drive to wherever you’re staying and adjust the bindings for you in your living room. If you want to swap out the skis you’re using, it’ll drive back and do so ($65 per day).

Buy one of these passes-

There are five multi-resort passes worth considering that work at Utah ski areas. Depending on where you’re going to ski and how many days you plan on skiing, buying one makes a lot of sense. For example, a day ticket at Deer Valley costs $160. But an $800 Ikon Pass will get you five days of skiing there, plus five days at Alta, Brighton, Snowbird, and Solitude. The $1,100 version of the pass gets you seven days of skiing at each ski area. Other options include: 

  • Epic Pass: $989, unlimited access to Park City and Snowbasin

  • Yeti Pass: $649 buys you a one-day ticket at each of the 15 Utah resorts

  • Mountain Collective: $509 for two days of skiing at Alta Ski and Snowbird, plus 50 percent off each additional ticket

  • Fifth- and Sixth-Grade Passports: For only $45, fifth-graders can ski or ride three times at each of Utah’s 15 resorts; sixth-graders get one day at each

Don’t miss getting into the backcountry-

There are lots of reasons why, including guaranteed powder turns even weeks after a storm, zero crowds, amazing views, and terrain options that you probably can’t find at most ski areas, such as couloirs and powder pillows. In Utah, there are several ways to get into the backcountry. Utah Mountain Adventures will take you ski touring throughout Little and Big Cottonwood Canyons. And its staff doesn’t just guide but also provides instruction, like how to most efficiently skin uphill and how to best tackle the deep snow on north-facing slopes. Lots of that terrain is mellow enough that even intermediates can handle it. For more advanced skiers looking for long ascents and gnarly descents, UMA guides tour clients to the 40-degree pitches, bowls, and chutes in the Lone and Twin Peaks Wilderness areas ($219 per person for a group of four). No backcountry experience is needed, but those looking to head out on their own next time can enroll in one of the company’s avalanache-safety courses

If touring isn’t your thing, you can fly or ride into the backcountry. Powderbird, a heli-ski operation based out of Snowbird and Park City, has access to 170,000 acres of terrain—everything from gently rolling slopes to steep tree-filled lines. You’ll get breakfast and lunch, six to ten runs, and ski thousands of vertical feet ($1,600 per day). Park City Powder Cats, with 43,000 acres to play on, is another option. Cat rides only take between five and ten minutes and gain you access to bowls, chutes, and, should you be so inclined, cliff drops. After six hours of fast laps, you’ll be ready for a hot tub and a beer ($629 per day). 


2. Dog Sledding:

If you’re headed out for a winter vacation this year and will without-a-doubt miss your furry, four-legged friend you’ll be leaving behind, then it might be best to quell that loss on a day tour with one of the dog sledding companies in the Park City area.

Each company has teams of beautiful huskies and other arctic breeds, some rescue dogs, all chomping at the bit to drag a winter sled guided by professional racers from all over the world. Luna Lobos Dog Sledding, All Seasons Adventures, Rocky Mountain Recreation, and Destination Sports and Adventures are all located within a few minutes drive of Park City and all offer competitive rates and unlimited fun in the snow with human’s best friend.


3. Golf:

There are 7 golf courses in Park City, Utah and 1 is a municipal course. There are also another 13 golf courses within 20 miles of Park City, including 1 public, 7 municipal and 5 private courses. The oldest course in the Park City area is the Willow Creek Country Club which was designed by Henry B. Hughes and opened in 1959. The longest course is Promontory Club, which is 8,098 yards. Talisker Club is rated the best course near Park City. The following courses have won various awards: Glenwild Golf Club and Spa, Promontory Club, Soldier Hollow Golf Course.


4. Summer Activities:

Your options for things to do in Park City are limitless, no matter your age. Try your hand at fly-fishing, soar above the mountains in a hot air balloon, explore the mountain on foot, a bike, or horseback, test your balance with stand up paddle board yoga, or tackle one of our golf courses. However you choose to explore Park City, it all makes for an unforgettable summer vacation. Let the fun begin.
