Best Things To Do in Park City

Welcome to Black Rock Mountain Resort, Park City’s newest adventure address.

The Wasatch Mountain Range region is famous for its prime powder during the winter, but the other seasons are just as epic. There are deep lakes and winding rivers for endless water
recreation, 400 miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking adventures, and the Utah Olympic
Park for ziplining, ropes course, and extreme tubing. The majestic mountains and canyons
provide incredible scenery to explore or take in the view while relaxing by the pool. The pool at
Black Rock Mountain Resort is a heated year-round resort amenity! All of this, and we are just
getting started.

Find something for everyone in every season by exploring the activities below.

To Appreciate the Beauty of Winter, Sometimes You Have to Stand Out In The Cold

Not necessarily. Although the area is home to no less than a half dozen of the most renowned ski resorts on the planet, with world-class shopping, dining, snowshoeing, the comforts of affordable luxury are only a few minutes away at the new Black Rock Mountain Resort. Our mountain communities provide the perfect backdrop for outdoor recreation, especially for those who list adventure as their priority. With everything from dog-powered sled rides and miles of Nordic terrain to more than 9000 acres of Olympic downhill runs
and alpine riding, snowmobiling, outdoor skating arenas, and legendary backcountry skiing and riding adventures, your winter vacation will leave you without a care and, at your discretion, without a breath.

But winter adventure is only one gear here in the Wasatch. A quick downshift and you’re walking the gaslit streets of Park City-poking around in curious shops or quaffing pints in a fireplaced snug. Eating at one of the more than 100 restaurants, from eclectic brewpubs to 5-star steakhouses, or sipping a local ale at one of the dozens of nightspots. All of this against a backdrop of white lights, snowy nights, and panoramic mountain views that seem to be everywhere you look.

Summer Better Than Others

The Park City region of the central Wasatch Range provides an infinite array of summer activities, al fresco dining, mountain town shopping, world-class fly-fishing, mountain biking, and festivals, and you’re located in the heart of it all at Black Rock Mountain Resort. Perched high on the edge of the Uintas Wilderness, just minutes from Park City and Deer Valley, Black Rock Mountain Resort is the area’s newest 4-star location. Perfect to enjoy the cool mountain breezes, deep lakes, picturesque national parks, and lonesome canyons that only central Utah can offer.

After marinating in this breathtaking natural beauty, the region is also home to craft breweries and distilleries, music and film festivals, outdoor dining, and stargazing so perfect, the wide-open, indigo skies of our mountain towns light up under a roar of stars and the flash of constellations. There is a reason that locals come for the winters and stay for the summers. Come find out why for yourself.
