With hundreds of miles of trails to explore in Park City, it’s not a matter of knowing where to find one — it’s deciding which route to take. Whether you seek a challenge, views, wildlife or simply an easy place to take the kids, use this guide to pick the perfect hiking trail:

For a Challenge: Jupiter Peak 

Photo Credit: Trip Advisor

Hardcore skiers know Jupiter for its seemingly endless powder and steep slopes. In the summer Park City’s highest point offers a different kind of thrill. Your trek to the top of “Jupe” will involve a blessedly great deal of shade if you head out early enough (highly recommended), winding switchbacks and a birds-eye view of Park City proper. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a fox on the way up, and you’ll have the unique perspective of walking across many popular ski runs while they’re covered in wildflowers. If that wasn’t enough to get you packing a few sandwiches, you’ll also encounter many old mining structures from Park City’s silver heyday. If you’re really adventurous and up to the challenge, you can enter the Jupiter Peak Steeplechase, a 15-mile run to the top and back, ending at the Silver Star at Park City community. Read about the race on Gear Junkie here.

Where to Stay: Woodside Villa | Silver Star at Park City 

 

 

For Families: Round Valley  

The wide, open trails of Round Valley are perfect for families looking to hike or even to introduce the kids to mountain biking. With a good mix of shade and sunshine, the extensive trail system allows for everything from short loops for a stretch of the legs to all-day treks. A trailhead with a public restroom makes this system particularly family-friendly, although you can access the network from many points. Ask your concierge for a recommendation and directions.

Where to Stay: Park Avenue Home | Red Pine Villa

 

For Wildlife: Mount Timpanogos 

There are many reasons “Timp” is one of Utah’s most popular hikes (the views, accessibility and general loveliness of Sundance Resort among them), but wildlife is right at the top for many who tackle this lengthy hike — which requires a full day if you want to take a selfie in the tin-roofed hut at the summit. And the cliff-clinging Billy Goats top an already

Where to Stay: Eagle’s Nest | Sundance Chalet

 

To Have it All : Canyons Resort

With a new golf course, downhill biking trails, outdoor concerts and a farmers’ market, Canyons Resort is an ideal place to get away — and still have plenty to explore. Choose from stunning villas with even more entertainment, including stadium-seat theaters, game rooms and hot tubs.

Stay at 159 Woodside Ave. within walking distance of Main Street for stunning views and no need to find parking!

Although it’s easy to feel the post-winter blues once the ski season ends in Park City, the silver lining of a gloriously temperate summer is always just around the corner — one filled with live concerts, outdoor markets and gourmet social events on par with major cities.  If Park City isn’t in your summer plans yet, here are 5 reasons we think you should visit this June:

The Foreigner at the Egyptian Theater (June 11-14)

Discover what theater enthusiasts already know about Park City at the historic Egyptian Theater, which is that you need not head to the Big Apple for a Broadway-caliber show. This professional production of The Foreigner, a play the NY Post called devilishly clever, will run for three days on Main Street Park City — the perfect opportunity to take advantage of special fine dining offers at surrounding gourmet restaurants. Your Resorts West concierge would be delighted to make a recommendations.

Savor the Summit (June 20)

Park City’s longest dinner party isn’t just about celebrated chefs and wine pairings, although with more than 20 restaurants in a dozen different types of cuisine, there’s certainly enough to celebrate. This Main Street tradition is also about enjoying Park City’s mountain setting while bringing together old friends and new to rehash the best moments of the last ski season and make plans for new summer adventures, from paddle-boarding to mountain biking. Reserve a Main Street Collection home, and you won’t even need to worry about parking.

Deer Valley Music Festival (Ongoing)

Indulge your inner classical music enthusiast in the stunning setting of Deer Valley’s natural Snow Park amphitheater. No matter your favorite genre (Broadway Pops? Mozart and Mendelssohn?), Deer Valley’s lineup features something for everyone. Your concierge can help you arrange the perfect evening, complete with a bottle of your favorite wine and a picnic. Stay at select luxury Deer Valley properties, and you’ll also enjoy a complimentary 4th night.

Park Silly Sunday Marketing (Ongoing)

This open-air, eco-friendly market is a hidden gem of summer — and not just for art enthusiasts. Although you may indeed find the perfect piece  for your entryway, you’re just as likely to remember the buttery kettle corn, live music and street performers. Walking to this free community event is encouraged, an easy feat with city-wide complimentary bus service and plenty of Main Street accommodations.

Olympic Day at Utah Olympic Park (June 27)

Celebrate Utah’s Olympic tradition with food, complimentary kids’ events, Olympian appearances and autographs. We recommend staying near the Utah Olympic Park at a scenic Canyons Resort home.

After a long winter, deciding between lounging on a sunny beach and a spending blue-bird day on the slopes can be tough — unless, of course, you don’t have to choose. For those who prefer to ski in the morning, bask in the sun all afternoon, and explore eclectic restaurants and live music in the evening, these Park City ski homes let you have it all:

Sky Villa

 Ski out your back door from this ultra-luxury estate at Canyons Resort, then after a day on the slopes, relax on your expansive deck while you gaze at the stunning mountain scenery – perhaps from your grotto-style hot tub.

Ski Utah Home

Relax around the fire pit at this ski-in/ski-out home and watch the action from your private deck. You can also easily ski to Silver Lake Village to lounge at Deer Valley Resort’s famous ski beach.

Gandhara

Cloud 90 at Canyons Resort

Cloud 90 inspires a feeling of home with its warm interior, cozy stadium-seat theater and roomy living areas. You’ll also have a private slope-side hot tub perfect for soaking up rays after a day on the slopes.

Silver Strike Lodge

Aside from two over-sized hot tubs, a fitness room and ski-in/ski-out access, Silver Strike Lodge also offers its own private ski beach with a cozy fire pit. Come inside for a cup of cocoa, or (if you have your private concierge stock your gourmet kitchen before you arrive), a glass of your favorite wine.

You already know you can ski out your back door, watch world-class bobsled athletes tackle the same track used in the Olympics, and unleash your inner Shaun White on a World Cup-quality half-pipe (or, if you’re newer to the slopes, ease into black-diamond territory with smooth-as-silk groomed trails).

But did you also know you can perfect your warrior pose in a natural hot-spring crater, try your hand at dog mushing or see Sam Bush in concert?Here are five reasons to visit Park City this February that have nothing to do with its abundant powder, but may just  help you cross a few items off your bucket list:

1. Mardi Gras on the Mountain

This year, take your beads for a spin on the slopes before joining Terrance Simien & The Zydeco Experience at the Egyptian Theater. An eighth generation Louisiana Creole, the Grammy Award-winning Simien makes Mardi Gras an authentic experience with his American roots music. The show plays Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening the weekend of February 6. Your concierge can help you secure tickets — and dinner reservations before the show.

Where to stay: Park Avenue Villa. Walk to the theater and the slopes from this Old Town home.

2.Go Sledding — With the Dogs 

Few towns let you experience authentic dog mushing, and Park City has some of the best guides in the world. Combine the town’s stunning scenery with expert mushers and friendly dogs, and you’ll leave with an unforgettable adventure for the whole family. Your Resorts West concierge can help you plan the perfect experience.

Where to stay: Red Pine VillaThis 6-bedroom home is within easy driving distance of Park City’s best mushing guides. You can warm up after your outdoor excursion with a dip in the private hot tub or a cup of cocoa in the theater.

3. Crater Yoga

Paddleboard yoga had become an increasingly popular summertime activity, but done in the winter — in a thousands-year-old covered hot spring? It’s not an experience encountered everyday. Park City Yoga Adventures offers a class that combines the healing powers of the hot spring with a playful yoga class that will heal powder-weary muscles and leave you rejuvenated before heading back home. Resorts West can gladly arrange your private class (based on availability).

Where to Stay: Great Escape at Deer Valley Resort. Enjoy a Zen-like neighborhood at this ski-in/ski-out Deer Valley home, which also features plenty of room for a girls’ trip. The 6-bedroom villa comfortably sleeps 12.

4. Weekend Wine Series - Test your knowledge of fine wines and learn about new ones with the Fox School of Wine Weekend series. Miss Fox makes class a lively, interactive experience that even the most novice (and most expert) pupil will enjoy. Reserve your spot in the next class directly online.

Where to stay: Racer’s Roost. This 5-bedroom ski home is near the base of Deer Valley Resort — and your classroom! Your concierge can arrange a professional babysitter during your grown-up evening, and secure dinner reservations after class to test your skills.

5. U.S. Snowboarding & Freeskiing Slopestyle & Halfpipe Competition - Watch the best athletes in the USA, including Sochi gold medalists Sage Kotsenburg and Joss Christansen, compete at Park City Mountain Resort’s Olympic-quality Super Eagle Half-Pipe and King’s Crown slopestyle course. Admission is open to the public; no lift ticket required.

Where to Stay: Woodside Avenue VillaThis 5-bedroom home is 30 yards from Park City Mountain’s Creole run, allowing you to ski nearly right from your door over to the base for all the action. You’ll also enjoy a private hot tub, wet bar and elevator.

To start planning your adventure to Park City this February, call us at 1-877-773-1117 or e-mail reservations@resortswest.com.
