Snowshoeing is growing in popularity for being an accessible winter sport that is easy to learn. All you need are a few inches of snow, snowshoes, and a relatively flat trail. Essentially, if you can hike, you can snowshoe!
One of the best places to snowshoe is at Wasatch State Park. Located in Heber Valley at the site of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, Wasatch Mountain State Park is a winter sport enthusiast’s paradise. There is plenty of wilderness area to explore for all levels of snowshoers. Immerse yourself in the backcountry, or try a guided snowshoe hike based out of the Wasatch Mountain State Park Visitor’s Center. If you are feeling really adventurous, the park has 125 camping spots available, including sites with full hookups and cabins.
Park City’s only outdoor ice skating rink. Centered at the base of Park City Mountain Resort, the rink offers ice skating for all ages with daily hours and no limit on skate time. With an ambient setting of pine trees, lights, and upbeat music, you’ll be in the mood for a great time. Rent sharp hockey or figure skates. The rink also offers warm beverages and complimentary skate walkers for children. The rink is nestled next to local shops and restaurants to check out while you’re there.
Experience the thrill of fun in the snow with snow tubing at Woodward Park City, perfect for the whole family! Two-hour tubing sessions on groomed tubing lanes, serviced by Woodward Park City on the Old Gorgorza Park Hill. Tubes are provided in the price of the session. Be sure to check the schedule and sign up for this popular Park City winter adventure.
Sleigh rides can be both fun and magical, especially to youngsters. There are many options from sleigh rides transporting your family to a cozy yurt dining experience to old-fashioned historic sleigh rides. Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain each offer their own services for a memorable, low-energy (at least for the humans) experience.
