While droves of traveler’s head to Park City, Utah for its epic skiing, this mountain town has much more to offer than the slopes. From dog sledding through the fresh powder to an authentic local whiskey tasting, the best bloody Mary’s in the world (and I’ve tried them all) to delicious local buffalo burgers, Park City is the most happening ski town in America! Here are the top things to do in Park City if you’re not a ski bunny.
Drinks at the St. Regis Deer Valley
Take the short trip from Park City to Deer Valley for the absolute best Bloody Mary in the entire world. Make sure to order the 7452 Mary (to represent the resort’s altitude), which is made with vodka from the High West Distillery, topped with a wasabi-celery foam, and rimmed with black lava salt.
Hair & Makeup at H2Blow Dry Bar
Every girl needs a little glitz and glam in her life. Head over to H2Blow Dry Bar for a blow out and makeup application, all for under $100.
Winter Comet Bobsled
Head over to the Utah Olympic Park where you can bobsled just like Lolo Jones. Nothing can compare to the adrenaline of soaring down the 2002 Olympic track.
Whiskey Tasting at High West Distillery
What better way to enjoy the wild, Wild West than at a delicious whiskey tasting. Head to downtown Park City for a flight of whiskey at the High West Distillery. If you’re not a big whiskey on the rocks person, order an old fashioned, which they craft expertly at their bar
CrossFit at CrossFit Minerstown
You may be at 7,000 feet, but that doesn’t mean that you can skip your workout! Head over to CrossFit Minerstown to WOD with the locals and work up an appetite for all of the great food you’ll be noshing on in Park City.
Après Ski at the Base of Canyons at Umbrella Bar
You don’t have to spend all day on the mountain to enjoy a little après ski! For a low-key fiesta, head to the Umbrella Bar, the perfect place for a base of the mountain brew.
Dog Sledding with Luna Lobos
Skip the slopes and take a dog sledding couples tour through the beautiful backcountry of Utah. Cozy up with your lover and mush your way through the forests surrounding Park City. Price: $275/couple
Buffalo Burgers at the No Name Saloon
The No Name Saloon is a staple of Park City, Utah. This restaurant and bar has been in business since 1903. Make sure to order the buffalo burger, which is topped with over half a dozen jalapeños!
Mexican Food at The Blue Iguana
Head to the Blue Iguana for the best Mexican food in town! Make sure to order the pulled pork burrito with a skinny margarita on the side.
