Park City Classy Warm-Weather Weekend
A weekend as laid-back, luxurious or active as you like
Excerpt by Tiffini Porter from her article, "A Classy Warm-Weather Weekend in Park City."
I have taken one ski lesson in my life. I was just shy of my fortieth birthday. It did not go well. Six-year-olds raced past me on the bunny hill. Overwhelmed by fantasies of flying into an embankment and meeting a spectacular end, I sat down in the snow and scooted back to flat land. It’s a hard thing for a born-and-raised Utahan to admit, but skiing just isn’t my thing. In fact, when it comes to spending time in Park City — Utah’s snow sports mecca — I prefer the sunny, urbane side of mountain life. Happily, here’s plenty of fun to be had for those who are looking to experience the “city” side of Park City, sans snow.
There are many ways to build a magical weekend in Park City. Three days can easily include art galleries, spa time, boutique browsing, food, and live entertainment. And, of course, the mountains make the place, so hiking boots are recommended for your pack list, but you don’t have to spend the entire time — or any time — in outdoor-gear mode. There’s plenty to do, and the itinerary can be as laid-back or active as you like.
