What could be better than balmy summer weather that extends straight through October? Try hotel and resort rates as much as 80 percent lower than usual. Of course, the world-famous snow sports spot plays host to many outdoor activities in the summer, too. Resorts offer prime mountain biking trails and (often) free gondola rides for an atypical panoramic of the Wasatch Mountains. Festivals are also a huge draw: attend the Park City Food & Wine Classic, the Deer Valley Music Festival, and the Canyons Resort Summer Film Series, and you won't even miss your snowboard.
