Top 5 Off Mountain Family Activities in Park City
Flying Eagle Zip Line
Yes, you came to ski or snowboard. But did you know that there is so much to do in Park City, it really is the ultimate winter vacation destination? Add a few of these activities to your itinerary and your kids will be begging to come back every year!
About a 10 minute drive from the heart of Park City is an unbelievably fun, lift serviced tubing park. Have little ones with you? Fort Frosty has a snow tube carousel gentle enough for the smallest tyke. Mini snowmobiles for kids ages 5-12 will leave any adult a little jealous that they can't go on! Insider tip: Crowds are low and lanes are FAST between 6-8 pm. For dinner, pick up a pizza on the way at the Park City Pizza Company and enjoy in the Warming Yurt at the park upon arrival.
Located at Park City Mountain Resort. Open daily from noon to 4pm, the coaster and zip line are fun rides for almost any age (*height restrictions apply). For the best value, buy the combo ticket available for purchase before 3 pm, which gives you one ride on each.
There's a new Jupiter Bowl in town, and you can't ski this one. Located in the Redstone shopping area, it's a short drive from the resort and on the free bus route. It's the nicest bowling alley our family has ever seen. Fabulous food, great decor, and comfy seating makes for luxury bowling.
You can't miss the sight of the ski jumps when you enter Park City. The host for many events in the 2002 Winter Olympics, admission is free for the guided tour and interactive museum. Many days you can watch athletes train on the jumps and bobsled runs. You can even sign up for a bobsled ride, although this is not for kids or the faint of heart!
On a nice day, hit the Resort Center Ice Rink at the base of Park City Mountain Resort. If the temperatures drop or the weather is not ideal, head over to the large indoor Park City Ice Arena for a fun filled day!
These are just my top 5, but the list of other activities is endless. Try cross country skiing, snowshoeing, dog sledding, or hot air ballooning. There are movie theaters and even an indoor play place, Monkey Mountain. Not to mention endless shopping and eating! If your lodging has a pool or hot tub, it's quite possible your kids won't want to go anywhere else. But it's great to have options, and Park City has something for everyone!
