Park City is already a picturesque winter wonderland. Surrounded by snow-capped mountain peaks and evergreen trees, our charming and inviting town— already named one of the top ten small towns to visit during the holidays— is the ideal spot to bring your family to make magical Christmas memories.
Here are a few things we’re looking forward to this year.
Sure, we’re famous for our world-class ski slopes. But if you’re coming to Park City for the holidays, you MUST spend an afternoon sledding. It’s the ultimate family-friendly activity that will have everyone in your crew laughing and smiling as you glide down the hill.
Some of our favorite spots to sled are at the Park City Ice Rink and the hill behind the middle school. There are plenty of options for purchasing affordable sleds— including local sporting goods stores. Give us a call and we can help you locate a sled.
For a more formal sledding experience— including comfy inflatable innertubes and the convenience of being towed back up the hill— head over to Soldier Hollow in Midway, about a 20-minute drive away. Reservations are recommended and tubing is available in 2-hour sessions. Click here to learn more.
Ice Skating Escapades
Another winter activity that’s ideal for holiday family fun is ice skating— and Park City has plenty of rink space to choose from. There’s the Park City Ice Arena an indoor rink with lots of afternoon ice times to choose from for public skating.
And for a fun outdoor adventure, head over to the Resort Center Ice Skating Rink, Park City’s only outdoor rink located at the base of Park City Mountain Resort. Surrounded by lighted Christmas trees, this rink truly captures the festive holiday spirit.
Riding the North Pole Express
Always a family-favorite holiday activity, the Heber Valley Express Railroad welcomes you aboard the North Pole Express for a 90-minute trip to see Santa Claus. Sing Christmas carols with the elves as you sip on hot cocoa and nibble on sugar cookies. It’s holiday fun for kids of all ages.
The North Pole Express runs until December 23, so make sure to hop aboard soon.
