Forget going to the big city during your upcoming holiday! Instead, we have a better idea in mind. Spring is the best time to head to the great outdoors. Put on your hiking boots or slip on your skis if there is still snow – the never-ending list of outdoor activities is ideal for going on a nice and long vacay with your family or friends.
And we have the best place in mind. Park City, Utah, is known around the world for its pristine nature, friendly locals, ample outdoor activities, mouthwatering restaurants, and much more. Plus, with Summit Luxury Vacations, you will always return home to a cozy, modern, and comfortable property that is great for relaxing and recovering after a long day of being outside. Let’s look at the best events in Park City during your upcoming spring getaway!
Hit the Ski and Snowboard Slopes
Get your skis and snowboard out of the closet and head to the slopes! You can make use of the very end of the ski season by getting the last of the bright white snow and cruising on some fresh powder. After the springtime, it is hiking all summer long — so make sure you get in the last Black Diamond run and feel the breeze against your face. There are tons of resorts in the Park City area, such as Park City Mountain, that are perfect for skiers and snowboarders of all levels.
Don’t Forget to Enjoy Après Ski
No day on the slopes is complete without après ski! Head to one of the local bars and restaurants to get a nice hot cup of cocoa, ice-cold beer, or a fresh glass of wine to celebrate the sunny and snowy day on the pristine mountain. We recommend going to one of the numerous bars, pubs, restaurants, or lounges just a few steps away from Park City Mountain. Some of our favorites include Drafts Sports Bar and Grill for watching the big game, sipping on some ice-cold beer, and having a tasty burger. Or, you can go to the Umbrella bar to sit outside, feel the sun on your face, and warm up after being on the cold mountain. Another favorite spot is the Corner Store for sitting outside on the large patio and eating your meal al fresco.
Head to Downtown for the Most Fun Events in Park City
Spring is one of the best times for you to walk around the historic downtown area of Park City! In the summer, it is too hot to spend the peak time outdoors. During the winter, it might be too cold. However, during the spring, there are fewer people, and the weather is perfect for walking along the street, going shopping, popping in and out of cafes, and bringing back souvenirs for your best friends. We recommend going to one of the hundreds of bars and restaurants on Main Street to try the local cuisine. The No Name Saloon is one of the best spots to kick off a fun night!
Check Out Utah Olympic Park
The Olympic Park is an Olympic training and competition area held in Park City that serves as the annual training ground for sports of all kinds. The best athletes from around the country come here to train and prepare for the big event every four years! Plus, the park is open to visitors who are interested in seeing the high-performance facilities and the towering ski slopes and jumps. During your time here, bring your kids to the Eccles Winter Olympic Museum or the Alf Engen Ski History Museum to learn more about the history of the Olympics and those who hail from Utah.
Experience the Fun at Spring Gruv and Compete in the Pond Skimming Competition
Spring Gruv at Park City Mountain Resort will be taking place from March 23rd to April 7th. For 16 days there will be daily family activities and live music along with free concerts every Saturday. This exciting event also includes the 23rd Annual Pond Skimming Competition! You can attempt to cross the 100 ft pond or just come and watch others make the attempt. Either way, you won’t regret attending this competition!
