Located just twenty minutes from the heart of Park City, the Heber Valley is its own winter destination, featuring outdoor sports and family fun.

Ice is an important element in the Heber Valley offerings. With three large reservoirs, fishing is year-round; most lakes freeze toward the end of December. In the winter, fish are hungry and eager to bite.

Thousands of gallons of water and hundreds of lights, along with a unique artistic flair, combine to create the Midway Ice Castles. Visit this magic winter wonderland from late December through late February.

As the winter classic goes, “The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh through the white and drifted snow.” In the Heber Valley, local outfitters take families, parties, and groups to some of the most beautiful and quiet areas of the valley via sleigh — an authentic winter experience.


With over 1,000 miles of trails, 200 of them groomed, snowmobilers never have to take the same path twice in the valley. Trails lead to Daniels Summit, Mill Hollow, Mirror Lake, Strawberry Valley and Wasatch Mountain State Park.

Soldier Hollow, just south of Heber City, was a popular Nordic venue for the 2002 Winter Games. With a rustic day lodge, this is the place for both beginner and expert cross-country skiers. Soldier Hollow also offers lift-served tubing both day and night, with lit runs.

Only in the Heber Valley can one ski and scuba on the same day! The Homestead Crater in Midway is the only warm water scuba diving destination in the continental U.S. Its 95-degree beautiful blue waters invite guests to soak away the strains from winter pursuits.
