Spring is a great time to visit Park City with kids. The snow is plentiful, the sun is often shining, and there are so many fun activities to keep you busy during your entire stay. 

Here are our top 10 activities to do with kids in the spring when you visit Park City:

Spring Skiing in Park City

Back to Top of List

Any trip to Park City in the spring wouldn't be complete without some spring skiing. As soon as the days start getting longer, the ski hills in Park City take on an almost festive feel, and the excitement over the spring weather is palpable. 

If you've got the kids with you, spring skiing is fantastic because you can enjoy the fun of skiing together, and the weather is usually pretty great. Although it's not uncommon to get a few big snowstorms in the spring, the temperatures are generally a bit warmer, which makes a big difference and helps kids stay happy on the mountain longer. Both Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain Resort are scheduled to remain open until April 17, 2023, if conditions permit.
