Beat The Heat at Park City Mountain Resort

Snowie

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.
