Things To Do in Park City Utah Year Round

Everybody knows Utah has the greatest snow on earth and when staying in Park City there isn't anything like skiing at Park City Mountain Resort (PCMR), The Canyons, Deer Valley, Alta, Snowbird, Brighton, Solitude, Snow Basin etc., but there is even more to do besides what the worlds best ski resorts have to offer.

All Seasons Adventures
Goose will arrange just about any outdoor activity you can imagine.  Horseback riding, fly fishing, white water rafting, dog sleds, snow shoes and more.  Tell Goose that Monique and John sent you.

 The Egyptian Theatre
About a minutes walk from your front porch at the #AbbottSkiHouse is a great little local theater company.  If you can, get one of the tables that belly up to the stage (not all shows have them).  You will be able to bring your own wine and snacks.  Truth be told, they don't frisk anybody on the way in ...

Utah Olympic Park
This is the favorite attractions for many of guests.  Check out their events calendar.  In the summer you can typically find the Flying Aces once a week (it was Sundays at 1 p.m. during 2013).  You will see some absolutely sick aerials.  There are great summer programs for kids of all ages to learn new ski and snowboard freestyle techniques or tune some old ones.  You won't believe that you are actually jumping into a bubbling pool while wearing ski equipment.

Park City Farmers Market
Wednesdays, starting late spring and running into the fall.  Pick up some local produce, you can't beat our peaches, plums, tomatoes and sweet corn.  Grab lunch while you are there.  Don't forget to tell Volker Oduya sent ya.  I should mention there is another summer market on lower Main all summer, but the Wednesday market is the real thing.

Park City Ice Arena
The fastest and most accessible ice around.  There are daily open skates and plenty of drop-in hockey and stick and puck.  Minor league hockey can be found throughout the winter.

The Marc (aka The Park City Racquet Club)
Work out, play tennis (indoors and out) and in the summer time hang out at the pool.  There is even a climbing wall.  Newly remodeled, about the best you can find for a municipally run club.

Check out Some Hot Springs
Contact your host directly @JabbottParkCity when you arrive at #AbbottSkiHouse and you will get some tips for the locals favorite hot springs.  Check out the Homestead hot springs where you can even get your open water scuba certification ... really.

Utah Rodeos
Utah rodeos are authentic, plentiful and affordable family friendly fun.  In the summer, chances are there is one happening near you every weekend.  There is even an indoor rodeo grounds a short drive away in Heber where you will find huge professional rodeo events year round.

The Heber Creeper (Train)
Special events and regular rides.  This is an old-school train not a roller coaster.  The kids love it!  Check for special events.

The Park City Museum on Main Street
Don't miss this.  Spend a little time in the museum to learn something about the rich history of Park City.  This museum is the real thing.  Just stop by before or after dinner or lunch.  Your host just may be board member so make sure you tell them John and Monique sent you.

The Bees Baseball
Minor league baseball in the Salt Lake Valley.  Great family fun and a fantastic product!

Tube or Kayak Deer Creek
Good on a hot day.  This is a half day activity about 20 minutes from Park City.  Combine it with the Timpanogos Cave eh?

And as always check out one of the local events calendars like Visit Park City.  They have a pretty good listing of the music events at Deer Valley.
