Park City Sailing is Catching Wind with their Adult and Jr.'s Lessons

July 21, 2020 by Casey Lane

Mooring, Dingy, Laser, fleet, match, Guppy, and Whaler - words that mean little on land, yet across the six square miles of water that make up the Jordanelle Reservoir, just east of Deer Valley, these words come to life. Seamanship seems, whether in the ocean or right here in Park City, has a language all its own. 

Wayfinding on Pathway Trails and Summit Bike Share

July 2, 2020 by Casey Lane

Over the years Park City’s single-track has become the resident star of summer, thrilling hikers and mountain bikers through successive switchbacks, challenging terrain, and groves of glittering Aspens. But for those who are looking for a way to take in our town’s extensive network of connected trails without padded gloves, shorts, or specialized shoes, the paved pathway system, either on foot or with the help of Summit Bike Share’s extensive fleet of electric bikes, has been upgraded to guide locals and visitors from Kimball Junction to Deer Valley, and everywhere in between.

Between thickets of pine trees, sagebrush, and rock are the caramel dirt roads of the Park City trail system. Trails that lead the town to tip and summit to lake, winding through wildflowers, climbing past Aspens, skipping over snowmelt creeks, and gliding across grassy ski runs. Trails that bloom as winter fades, flowering with a new season of sport in a town that seems to call hikers and bikers with the same volume and enthusiasm it does skiers and snowboarders, saying boldly, with her red tulips and blue skies, I’ve changed, again, and maybe, for the better.

February 18, 2020 by Casey Lane

For almost 50 years, Woodward has been making action sports accessible to kids and families across the country and beyond, with a sister location at the Hard Rock Hotel on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. But the 2019 expansion has now enabled Woodward to call Park City, Utah, their newest home, and in doing so, they have already welcomed thousands of visitors seeking a piece of the adrenaline rush at 7,000 feet.
