In the third episode of Park City First Timers, Makena heads to the Homestead Crater with Park City Yoga Adventures for a one-of-a-kind paddleboard yoga experience. The Homestead Crater is a 10,000-year-old geothermal spring, located within a beehive-shaped limestone rock, with its waters ranging from 90-96 degrees Fahrenheit.

PICTURE PERFECT PARK CITY POOLS
While pools are often considered to be a great way to beat the heat during the summer months, many of Park City’s hotel pools are heated and designed to be enjoyed throughout the winter.  We put together a list of some of Park City’s most picturesque hotel pools, nestled in the mountains, with spectacular views.  Good news, some of these stunning pools even have day pass options, allowing visitors who are not staying at the hotel to enjoy them.

The Park City First Timers series was such a blast this summer that we had no choice but to bring it back. This time, we’re highlighting six unique winter adventures in Park City, Utah.  

In our first winter episode, our host, Makena, gives fat tire biking a try. She starts by meeting with our friends at Storm Cycles to get the lowdown on fat tire bikes, how they differ from standard mountain bikes, and how they handle in the snow.

While today Park City, Utah is known as a top rated winter destination, its history runs deep in silver mining.  Park City was incorporated in 1884 after the area was discovered to be rich in silver. The town flourished as people flocked to the area from all over the world in hopes of striking it rich. In the 1930s, skiing began to draw interest after a ski jump was built atop the Creole Mine dump. As the mining industry started to crumble, skiing in Park City continued to gain popularity when a ski lift was installed at Snow Park (now Deer Valley Resort) in 1946. and then again in the mid-60s with the opening of Treasure Mountain (now Park City Mountain Resort). Although silver mining in Park City disappeared for good by the 1980s when the price of silver declined drastically, the ski industry continued to grow.

Some say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we believe them! Where will you find the energy for a fun day on the slopes, shopping, or for Nordic skiing on Park City’s trails, without a delicious and nutritious breakfast?

Finding a solid breakfast or brunch spot can be challenging – especially if you’re visiting an area for the first time.  Breakfast and brunch choices are often a matter of preference, depending on what kind of morning meal you prefer and what kind of time you have. Are you a hardcore bruncher who spends hours enjoying a meal every Sunday morning? Or are you the grab-and-go type? Whether you prefer to grab a cup of coffee and a quick bite on the run, or prefer full-on sit-down brunch, Park City, Utah has breakfast and  brunch options to suit every taste bud. 


PARK CITY MOUNTAIN RESORT
DOC’S RUN

Located just above Park City Mountain Resort’s Canyons Village, Doc’s Run overlooks the village area and Swaner Preserve and Ecocenter’s open space. On a bluebird day, you can even see as far as the Uinta Mountain Range.  Doc’s Run offers a steady pitch, allowing you to coast into Canyons Village with ease.  It’s a great way to finish up a day on the mountain, as it is accessible via the Orange Bubble Express lift mid-station, which drops you off right next to Lookout Cabin where the fondue and views from the deck will knock your socks off.
