Park City

Park City in Utah, USA was a silver mining town. Now it is a world famous tourist destination. Recently it held events during the 2002 Winter Olympics and is home to the Sundance Film Festival.

Utah’s state slogan on vehicle plates is “The Greatest Snow on Earth”.

The Wasatch Mountain range is known for its light powder and lake effect snowfall averaging over 500 inches a year. The snow season lasts from November to May. There are 13 resorts in Utah within driving distance.  The international airport of Salt Lake City (SLC) is only 38 miles from Park City.

Park City has 3 resorts on the city’s free bus route; Park City Mountain Resort, The Canyons and Deer Valley Resort. Within one hours drive are the world-class resorts of Snowbird, Alta, Brighton, Solitude, Sundance, Snow Basin and Powder Mountain.

Après Activities and Machine Guns

Main Street in Park City is home of the Wasatch Brewery and Pub, High West Saloon Whiskey Distillery and many popular bars, restaurants and nightclubs. We make trips to shoot military machine-guns, rifles and pistols at an indoor gun range in Salt Lake. Snowmobiles, Cat-Boarding and Heli-boarding are also available at extra cost. The Main Street pub-crawl, all-you-can-eat-buffet and 10-pin bowling nights are popular evening activities.
