When I opened up my google homepage today, the "How to of the Day" topic was how to survive a heat wave. There is no denying that Utah is in the middle of a heat wave. We recommend taking the appropriate precaution of coming up to Park City where, as a rule, it is at least ten degrees cooler than Salt Lake City. After all an Alpine Coaster ride sounds a lot more fun than sitting on the couch with a fan in your face.
Take a hiatus from the rising temperatures and cool off on a relaxing and scenic Town Lift ride. Once you've reached the top you can seek refuge from the heat under a blanket of trees while exploring many of our hiking and mountain bike trails. Team member favorites on a hot day are a quick break at the Dip-n-dots and Snowie stands. "My favorite way to cool down on a scorcher is to grab a Snowie. The Tiger's Blood flavor is my favorite!" says PCMR team member Meisha Lawson. "I prefer a ZipRider™ break! Nothing beats the cool breeze on the chairlift ride up and the wind in your hair as you zip through the trees," says team member Jess Werner.
So as the sweltering heat sweeps Salt Lake, remember that Park City Mountain Resort is your summer oasis. We are only a 30 minute drive from Salt Lake and want to help you beat the heat!
