BLOW IN THE WIND – A VIEW FROM ABOVE
From the top of Jupiter Peak to the shoreline of the Jordanelle, Park City’s splendor can be viewed from just about every angle. But for some, the best views of Park City are the ones you get from the air when partaking in these favorite summer Park City Zip Line and Hot Air Balloon activities.
It’s almost impossible to look at someone zip lining and not see a big smile beaming across their face. Gliding through the air, above the treetops and mountains, evokes an exhilaration that to fully understand you just have to harness in, follow your guide and enjoy the ride!Whether it’s your first or your fifteenth time, zip lining in Park City offers an elevated zip line experience. With Zipline Utah, not only are you promised majestic views of the Wasatch Range and Deer Creek Reservoir, you have access to record-breaking courses. The Screaming Falcon line is currently the longest zip line over water and the longest continual zip line in the world. With six tours to choose from with various levels for ages eight and up, the whole family can experience Park City from a whole new way —blowing in the wind!
There are few experiences more magical than floating hundreds of feet in the air around the Wasatch Mountains from a wicker basket and a giant balloon of hot air. After eight years of ballooning around the country, Jake Thomas of Bigfoot Balloons describes the feeling he gets soaring the Park City skies as both calming and being purely at peace. “I’ve flown in many places from Tennessee to New Zealand and from a scenery perspective, Park City is number one on my list.” Whether as a romantic date or a family adventure, everyone is welcome to take flight, as long as they have a good instructor and the weather is perfect. And when in Park City, both are easy to come by.
