Deer Valley Resort and Park City Resort Mountain are hard at work preparing to launch their summer operations, but they cherish the tranquility of springtime.
“I enjoy rediscovering Park City after a busy ski season. It's fun to watch the mountain transform from winter to spring and into summer. It's just a wonderful time to be in Park City.”
- Ryan Mayfield, Content and Social Media Manager at Deer Valley Resort.
Deer Valley Resort kicks off their summer operations June 15th. The world-renowned Utah Symphony has an exciting lineup set to grace the Snow Park Amphitheater from June 30th- August 11th.
Over at Park City Mountain Resort, they’re enjoying the warmer weather, and looking forward to hitting the hiking trails.
“The ski lifts have stopped turning, but don’t worry, the outdoor fun in Park City definitely doesn’t end when the slopes close for the season! As we head into May, I love watching the scenery across town change from snowy white to vibrant green. There are plenty of trails that dry up pretty quickly in the Spring and are ready for hiking earlier than you might expect. I love hiking off of the Spring Creek Trailhead and watching the early-season wildflowers pop up.”
- Jessica Miller, Senior Communications Specialist at Park City Resort
