If you caught last weeks foodie's guide to Park City you know I promised I'd be back with all the fun activities we did while IN Park City!
So many people think ski towns are just for skiers, and that is totally not true! I shared some of my favorite things to do in Breckenridge that didn't involve skiing, and there were so many people who had no idea there were so many other things to do in a ski town!
1. Snow Tubing
This is probably one of my most favorite things to do when in the snow! The snow tubing at Gorgoza Park was the best tubing runs I have been on! You grab your tube, hop on the conveyor belt and up you go! No work necessary- haha kidding. But unlike a lot of snow tubing places we have been to, this one had the easiest route to the top. Definitely a great activity for the whole family!
2. Sleigh Ride
This is no Santa's sleigh y'all. Snowed Inn Sleigh Ride and dinner was amazing! This sleigh ride is pulled up the mountain by two gorgeous horses, led by a cowboy who is happy to share tons of stories about the horses, the mountains, and anything else you can think of! Once you ride the sleigh in to the mountains, you hop off at the Snowed Inn lodge where the ride gets even better. You're able to pick from a few different options for your meal, while sipping the BEST apple cider in the whole world (I'm not exaggerating), all while listening to the sounds of the mountain. Cider, chili, fish, steak, salad, and dessert- these guys have it all! Be sure to make a reservation!
Just outside of Park City is Summit Meadow Adventures! It was only about a 15 minute drive from the city, in a secluded mountain area. We've only been snowmobiling a couple times before and this course was definitely more challenging than the others we had been on! There was tons and tons of fresh snow, which was awesome but made for a more challenging ride! If you are up for a serious adventure Snowmobiling with Summit Meadow Adventures is for you!
4. Visit a Spa
Aura Spa is the BEST. Nestled right on Main Street in Park City, this little spa is the perfect retreat after a few days of intense skiing. Thomas surprised me with couples massages on the morning of my birthday and I couldn't have been more excited. The night before we got tons of snow, so they had to shut down some of the main roads in to town, which meant difficulties for some of the spa workers. Aura called us, let us know what was going on, apologized profusely and even gave us a little discount for the troubles. The massages were amazing and exactly what we needed after a full week of adventure.
5. Distillery Tour
I mentioned High West Distillery in my Park City food guide because they have some awesome dishes, but they also have an incredible distillery on site. They offer tours and tastings all day long. I'm not the biggest whiskey person there is, but the moment I tried their double rye, I was hooked! Did I mention it's the worlds only ski-in/ski-out distillery in the world? Pretty cool! Hop off the slopes and ski right in to some delicious whiskey!
6. Visit Homestead Crater
Dreaming of something a little warmer in this snowy city? Homestead Crater is for you. The mineral water here is a steady 90-96 degrees all year round, making it the worlds only warm water scuba diving spot! Just a short drive outside of Park City (In Midway, Utah) and the perfect escape from the busy ski-town hustle. Check out Groupon before you go- they always have discounts for Homestead! We really wanted to check out the Ice Castles while we were there, but they were closed due to warm weather.
Bonus 7. Hang on Main Street
I've been to a lot of "Main Streets" and not one of them is the same. In Park City, there were tons of adorable shops, delicious spots to grab a quick bite and everything else you can think of!
Thinking of heading to Park City sometime soon? Which of these activities would you totally be down for?
