Park City has an abundance of skiing options available and rightfully so as it is one of the world’s best ski resort towns! But what do you do if you are not a skier? No matter if you were coerced into going after drinking too much egg nog or you just want a complete change of scenery, regardless there is plenty of things to do in and around Park City as a non-skier.
Ride In A Hot Air Balloon
Hot air balloon rides always amazing; have you ever seen a hot air balloon at sunrise? You could see the magic first hand in Park City. Flights generally last one hour as you gracefully float through the sky as the sun rises. Down below you may see some deer and elk while you could also get a glimpse of Salt Lake Valley as the wind directs you to the day’s landing spot. Surely a unique event and a memory to treasure for a lifetime.
Explore Utah Olympic Park
Having hosted the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, the area has preserved that memory at Olympic Park. Experience the feeling of the luge, bobsled skeleton, and 5 Gs of force on the winter bobsled as you learn about the year that was.
Great fun for the entire family, Gorgoza Park does the hard work for you with its lift to the top as you snake back down the track on your tube. Kids can also have a go at riding the mini-snowmobiles if they are game.
Everyone may ask if you ski or snowboard, however many other snow related activities are possible. Jump on a sleigh as you are pulled across the snowy meadows and through the woods. You could also add some romance to the journey, enjoying dinner in a wooden hut.
Sundance Film Festival
