"I came for the winters but stayed for the summers" is a common quote that's been tossed around by Park City locals for the past 20 years- maybe longer. No one knows who first said it but who cares? What matters is the consensus over the joys of a summer in the Wasatch mountains.
Deer Valley Resort was one of the first in Park City to capitalize on the harmony of the cool mountain temps, the dry weather patterns, and the intense beauty of wildflowers, green hills and clean air. They opened their trails to mountainbikes and hikers, fired up the kitchen for gourmet lunches under umbrellas on their mid-mountain deck and hired local and national bands as well as the Utah Symphony to perform weekly under the stars outside the Snow Park Lodge.
Hiking and Mountain Biking
Deer Valley has more than 55 miles of single track hiking and mountain biking. You can reach them the hard way (riding uphill) or purchase a ride ticket to some of the best downhill trails in the Wasatch. Park at Snow Park Lodge and take the Silver Lake Express to the Silver Lake Lodge (or you can park up at the Silver Lake Lodge for direct access to the trails). Trail maps are available at both lifts.
Lunch at Royal Street Cafe
Whether you sport first or go straight up to lunch, there's no better place for a mountain-setting meal than Royal Street. Enjoy soups, salads, sandwiches and mojitos from the deck while watching bikers and aspen trees shimmer in the distance.
Deer Valley Summer Adventure Camp
Drop the kids off for a day or week exploring the resort. The state-licensed Children’s Center offers activities and challenges for kids two months to 12 years. They'll venture outdoors, lead scavenger hunts, create arts and crafts, swim and take field trips. Your kids won't want to come home.
You won't soon forget that romantic eve on a mountainside when you attend the free Wednesday night locals' concert series or purchase a ticket to one of the Big Stars, Bright Nights Outdoor Concerts. The shows at the Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater never fail to entertain; just be prepared for bottleneck traffic when they're over or you'll spoil the good mood.
