Park City on the cover!
Outside Magazine just named Park City one of America’s best towns — and, well, we have to agree. Here are 18 reasons why we’re happy to be here all year long:
1. Perfect weather — that’s more than 300 days of sunshine a year, including blue-bird powder days after an epic snow storm.
2. Did we mention there’s no humidity?
3. The airport is less than 45 minutes away, so getting away — and coming back — couldn’t be easier.
4. Hundreds of miles of trails for hiking, trail running, mountain biking and even mountain unicycling. Park City is also the world’s only IMBA Gold-Level bike destination, which means there are trails for every ability.
6. A free bus system!
7. It’s also easy to get around solely on foot and by bike.
8. Art events, community film…
9. Grammy-winning musicians…
10. …and that’s not even counting the Sundance Film Festival!
11. Fresh air. ‘Nuff said.
12. Best Snow on Earth — truly. And three world-class resorts to enjoy it.
13. Not to mention some of the world’s best heli-skiing.
14. And for those who prefer other winter sports – snowmobiling, Nordic skiing, dog sledding and snowshoeing.
15. There’s endless summer recreation, too, from stand-up paddle boarding to hot air ballooning.
16. And we can’t forget the Utah Olympic Park — where you can watch athletes from across the world, explore winter Olympic history, and even ride the bobsled!
17. Some may be surprised to learn there are also dozens of fine dining restaurants, from Swiss to Middle Eastern.
18. And perhaps the best reason of all to count Park City among America’s best towns — the welcoming people. We want you to visit!
