Looking for Park City activities to enjoy over a holiday break?
YES. President’s Week is upon us. Aside from the Sundance Film Festival, this is the busiest week in Park City. Visitors fly in from all over the country to celebrate the holiday in winter style.
It stands to reason that with this busy week our mountains are packed full of skiers and snowboarders. It’s always fun to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle. However, if you want to take a day or two away from the slopes, there are plenty other Park City activities that let you experience our winter paradise :

2 hours north of Park City is Bear Lake. This turquoise waterway is a local’s secret. Grab your pop-up tent, ice reel and winter gear and spend the day Ice Fishing on the lake. Enjoy a cozy dinner at Coopers Restaurant or the Bear Trapper Restaurant and snuggle in for the night at one of the welcoming cabins, like Mimi’s Lodges.
