There is no denying it; winter in Park City, Utah is pretty amazing! Winter usually brings quite a bit of snow, which takes awhile to melt even once the resorts close – especially at higher elevations. This can make some of the area’s trails less accessible until later into the spring/early summer.  That being said, there are plenty of low elevation trail options to explore. Hitting the trails is a fun (and active) to get outside as spring transitions into summer. Here is a list of springtime trails/trail systems to explore this spring:

In the fifth episode of Park City First Timers, Makena goes for the ride of her life in the Winter Comet Bobsled at Utah Olympic Park. Built for the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, the Utah Olympic Park is a 400-acre, multi-use venue. Open to the public, the park also hosts international competitions and is used as a training facility.
