White Pine Touring – Activities in Park City
Located in Prospector Square, White Pine Touring is an outdoor retailer specializing in mountain biking, backcountry skiing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and rock climbing. White Pine Touring is literally a one-stop activity center.
Cross Country Skiing:
White Pine Touring grooms over 20 kilometers of Nordic trails for classic and skate skiing.whitepinetouring.com/index.php. Their 3K loop is ideal for skiers new to the sport, or avid skiers needing a short warmup. For a few more hills try the 5K loop, or soak in the epic climbs of the iconic McPolin Farm on the advanced 10K loop.
If you’re new the sport, cross country skiing is a fast, fun, full-body experience that will leave you sweating, smiling, and wanting more. Whether you’re into the kicking and gliding of classic skiing, the speed of skate skiing, or don’t even know the difference between the two, the local instructors at White Pine Touring are there to you get started. Personal instruction or Group “bubble” lessons (to maintain COVID-19 safety) are available.
If you’re interested in getting your heart rate pumping, seeing beautiful mountains, staying local, or exploring the nearby backcountry, White Pine Touring offers guided snowshoe tours in Park City.
White Pine’s guides will set you up with the right equipment; snowshoes to help keep you above the surface of the snow and trekking poles for stability. All you need to do is dress in layers, wear warm snow boots, and bring water and snacks. The experience guides handle the rest, including route finding, planning, and the proper safety precautions required for spending a day in a winter environment.

The Castle Peak Yurt is available year-round for nightly rentals. whitepinetouring.com/yurt-camping-reservations.php. Located approximately 30 miles outside of Park City, the yurt is nestled just below Castle Peak, deep in the wilderness of the Uinta Mountains.
The yurt comfortably sleeps up to eight people on bunk beds with camp-style mattresses provided. You’ll want to bring your own sleeping bags or blankets, keeping in mind that temperatures drop drastically once the sun goes down.
Cook your favorite camping meals on the three-burner gas stove using the provided pots, pans, and utensils. With a wood stove for heating, a solar-powered lighting system to save your batteries, and an outhouse onsite, the Castle Peak Yurt is designed to be a very cushy campsite.
