As with every New Year, it’s always fun to make a list of resolutions or of new things you want to try. Maybe the list includes items that are outside your comfort zone or something you’ve never even thought to try. We put together a Park City-oriented list for you to consider as you think about what you want your 2024 to include! 

Take a Ski or Snowboard Lesson

Back to Top of List

Maybe you have always wanted to learn how to carve, or you want to feel more comfortable off-piste and on steeper terrain—even the best of skiers and riders can brush up on their skills from time-to-time. Sign up for a ski or snowboard lesson at Park City Mountain. Park City Mountain also offers “never ever” snowboard lessons, and ski and snowboard lessons geared specifically towards women. 

Ski with a Champion at Deer Valley Resort

Back to Top of List

What’s more inspiring than cruising around Deer Valley Resort with an Olympic skier? Deer Valley Resort’s Ski with a Champion Program provides individuals, families, or groups the opportunity to enjoy an exclusive full or half-day ski experience alongside some of the greatest skiers in U.S. history. 

Go Cat-Skiing or Heli-Skiing

Back to Top of List

Skip the lift and step out of your comfort zone—cat and heli skiing should be on your list for 2024. This is your year to ski untracked powder in backcountry terrain with Park City Powder Cats or Powderbird. With steep, ungroomed terrain, Park City Powder Cats requires guests to be, at least, advanced-intermediate skiers. Experienced, certified guides, prepared meals, and repeat runs on untouched snow make a day at Thousand Peaks Ranch an experience of a lifetime. “Steep Lines. Big Bowls. Untracked Powder.” – you know you want to! 

Try a New Sport

Back to Top of List

Park City, Utah is a mecca for all types of physical activities. Ring in the new year by trying a new activity for the first time. Take in the scenery by fat bike, or test your stamina while Nordic skiing. Take a standup paddleboard yoga class in a geothermic crater, or find inspiration from our First Timers video series.  There are so many active ways to explore the Park City area!

Take a Wine Class

Back to Top of List

Sip, Savor, and learn with Fox School of Wine. Enjoy an educational happy hour with Fox School of Wine's Weekend Wine Series this winter. Classes are designed to give both the beginner and the experienced wine lover a glimpse into stories, facts, and history that make the world of wine so interesting.

Ride the Bobsled at Utah Olympic Park 

Back to Top of List

Experience a thrill of a lifetime in a bobsled on the Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Winter Games Sliding Track at Utah Olympic Park. The Track was home to bobsled, skeleton, and luge events during the 2002 Salt Lake Olympic Winter Games. One of UOP's professional pilots takes three passengers on a thrilling ride down the 2002 Olympic track. The Winter Bobsled Experience is highly physical and extreme, generating up to 4-5 times the force of gravity. It’s an Olympic experience not to be missed!

Take a Hot Air Balloon Ride

Back to Top of List

Maybe you’ve been to Park City before, or even know the ins and outs of the area. But have you ever checked out the area's beauty from 10,500 feet up in the air? Coasting through the air by hot air balloon is calming and tranquil, and offers a unique perspective of the surrounding landscape. It’s an experience unlike any other.

Dig Into Park City's History

While being more physically active is always a practical New Year’s resolution, exercising your brain is also important! Increase your knowledge of your favorite mining-turned-ski-town by touring the Park City Museum on Historic Main Street, visiting the Alf Engen Ski Museum at Utah Olympic Park.

Treat Yourself to Wellness

Back to Top of List

Self-care has always been important but is valued (and on-trend) now more than ever. What better way to take care of yourself than by experiencing a day of relaxation and indulging in one of the Park City area’s unique spa treatments. From the Vichy shower at the Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge to an herbal soak in Spa Montage’s copper tubs, the area’s spa offerings are refined and luxurious and will leave you feeling like a new person in 2018.
