5 Spots to Take Your Sweetheart This Valentine’s Day in Park City

Most people know that Utah has “The Greatest Snow on Earth”. But once February arrives in Park City, our famous “Utah Powder” starts mixing with all the romance in the air.

Whether your perfect date night includes scenic mountain views or a mouth-watering meal, we’ve got you covered. Here are 5 activities we recommend for a memorable Valentine’s Day in Park City.

Ice Skating at the Resort Center Ice Skating Rink

Trying to keep your balance while gliding across a frozen rink can be hilarious. But it’s also a great excuse to cozy up close to that special someone. And what’s better than a day filled with laughter and romance?

A variety of shops and restaurants surround The Resort Center Ice Skating Rink, making it an ideal choice for a fun day out (before a romantic evening in).

Dinner at Cafe Terigo

After a long day on the slopes, warm your bodies and fill your bellies with a meal at Cafe Terigo. The mouth-watering French and Northern Italian cuisine make it a Park City favorite. And the charming brickwork and unique decor promise an enchanting evening for all.

A Hot Air Balloon Ride With Bigfoot Balloons

For a Valentine’s Day that you’ll be talking about for years to come, book a hot air balloon ride with Bigfoot Balloons. As you soar high above the city with your sweetheart, you’ll take in breathtaking views of the city below.

These spectacular journeys take place at sunrise, so be warned if you aren’t an early riser. But in our opinion, this is one experience worth losing sleep over.

Couples Massage at Align Spa

For a low-key Valentine’s Day where you and your partner can relax and unwind, book a couple’s massage at Align Spa.

The Love Package is a 2-hour experience that begins with a massage and ends with a hair and scalp treatment. This is especially soothing for those feeling sore from winter sports activities.

Sleigh Ride and Dinner at The Viking Yurt

It all starts with a 23-minute, Snowcat pulled sleigh ride 1,800ft up the side of a mountain.  In other words — it’s a journey you’ll never forget.

Weatherproof blankets keep you warm and cozy as you travel past snow-capped trees and observe the twinkling city lights.

Your final destination is the Viking Yurt, where you’ll spend the rest of the night dining on a six-course meal. Surrounded by glowing candles and live piano music, you’ll fall in love all over again.

We Love to Play Cupid

No matter how you choose to spend Valentine’s Day in Park City, having the perfect Love Nest to come back to at the end of the day is a must.

Here at Moose Management, it’s our goal to help you find the perfect vacation rental home to complement your romantic Park City getaway. Give us a call at 435-714-6544 to start planning your fairytale adventure today.

 

Three New Things to Try in Park City in the New Year

It’s that time of year when we all start making new year’s resolutions, and— let’s be honest— they’re usually not very exciting. Eat better, get more exercise, quit a bad habit… sure, all of these are great ideas. But this year, how about adding a bit of fun to your “to-do” list? 

Here in Park City, there are always plenty of new things to try and new places to explore. So once you’ve slipped out of skis or your snowboard, why not try something completely different in 2023? Here are three of our favorite off-the-beaten-path winter adventures in Park City, plus a bonus look at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival. 

Dog Sledding

If your idea of a great day involves spending it with a furry, four-legged friend, then an exhilarating day of dog sledding will be right up your alley. Rancho Luna Lobos is an award-winning kennel located just 15 minutes outside of Park City. 

With impressive packs that include Iditirod-trained dogs and rescue dogs, you’ll be in good hands with this family-owned and operated business. An afternoon spent exploring the trails behind an athletic pack of perfectly trained canines is completely exhilarating and utterly unforgettable. Trust us, you’ll be talking about it for months after you’ve completed your breathtaking tour!

Snowshoeing

Great for beginners and experts alike, snowshoeing in Park City requires absolutely no experience and can be enjoyed by any skill level. With fully guided private tours that last anywhere from two to four hours, you’ll experience the majestic Rocky Mountain beauty like never before while also getting in a great workout. 

Snowshoes allow you to explore terrain that would normally be off-limits to normal hikers, plus you’ll get to see some truly magnificent views and scenery. Check out Destination Sports to schedule your tour. 

Tubing

Looking for an activity that’s easy, laid-back, and just plain fun? Then you’ll want to take the whole family on a tubing trip. Like traditional hillside sledding except on a more comfortable, inflated inner tube, most Park City tubing sites even have lifts to take you back up the hillside— so you get all the fun with minimal effort. Sounds good to us!

As you can guess, tubing is ideal for kids of all ages, and some of the hillsides are even lighted, making tubing a perfect nighttime adventure for the whole family! Check out Woodward Park City to purchase tickets. 

Bonus: Don’t Forget About Sundance!

This year, the world-famous Sundance Film Festival will be held in Park City from January 19 to January 29. For ten days, our town is taken over by some of the world’s most gifted storytellers, for a showcase of amazing motion pictures and documentaries. This is the first time the festival is happening in person since 2019, so you don’t want to miss the excitement!

Our 4 Favorite Spots for Coffee in Park City

With the temperatures dipping down into winter jackets and mittens temperatures, the coffee shops in Park City start filling up with locals looking for a quick pick-me-up as well as a warm mug to wrap their hands around. Lucky for us, our charming downtown is chock-full of locally owned and operated coffeehouses that sell everything from homemade smoothies to delectable lunchtime sandwiches. 

Here, we share our four favorite spots for a morning cup of joe or an afternoon tea break with friends.

Come stroll and sip with us. 

Atticus Coffee and Teahouse- 738 Main Street

Cozy and quirky with a lovely community-based vibe, Atticus Coffee and Teahouse is the perfect spot to spend a chilly Park City afternoon. They’re named after the stoic lawyer Atticus Finch from the novel To Kill A Mockingbird, so of course, they sell used books as well.

With a delicious menu that also offers smoothies, sandwiches, and a delectable tea selection, this coffeehouse is a local favorite. 

Silver King Coffee- 1450 Snow Creek Drive

Proudly locally owned and operated since 2011, Silver King is an inviting coffee house that also uses local vendors, making for a unique Park City experience.

Besides the delectable selection of specialty espressos and lattes, we also love their Power Hour smoothie (almond milk, peanut butter, banana, oats, agave) and the Lavender Lemon Bread.

Pink Elephant Coffee Shop- 509 Main Street, Upper Level

Not only does Pink Elephant Coffee Shop brew some of the best blends in Park City, but they are also local roasters, too. They even have their very own roastery in nearby Heber City.

Founded in 2014, their downtown coffee shop is a sleek and elegant space where true coffee connoisseurs will feel right at home. 

Lucky Ones Coffee- 1255 Park Avenue

An inclusive coffee shop that proudly employs and empowers people with disabilities, Lucky Ones Coffee is a local Park City favorite.

On a chilly day, this is the ideal spot to stop in for a hand-warming hot chocolate, a creamy chai latte, or a classic avocado toast. All this, plus some truly delicious mochas, espressos, lattes, and cappuccinos. SO yummy!
