World-Class Fly Fishing
The snowmelt in the spring brings the rivers alive with gorgeous unspoiled water creating perfect conditions for world-class fly fishing. Connect with nature as you walk through peaceful streams anticipating landing your first rainbow trout. There are dozens of fishing shops and guides in the area. No experience necessary; the Utah guides are the best and will teach you the art of fly-fishing.

Mountain Biking
Park City is a premier mountain biking destination. There is something for everyone from the rolling hills to high-adrenaline challenges. Take the chairlifts up the mountain and ride the trails down, or schedule time with a guide to take you on a dope ride.

Golf Courses
Escape the crowds and revel in the panoramic views. The Salt Lake City and surrounding area is home to seven public and eight private courses. Our summer weather is perfect for golfing and don’t be surprised if your game is improved. Sshhhh…there is a secret in the mountain air.

Are you interested in more high-adrenaline activities? Try ziplining, ATV rides, hop on the Mountain Coaster and take loops and curves at 25mph, visit the Utah Olympic Park, and check out the Discovery Course, Summer Bobsled, or Drop Tower.

The region is also home to craft breweries and distillers, al fresco dining, mountain town shopping, music and film festivals, plus our State and National Parks.

For all Park City upcoming events, visit the Park City Chamber of Commerce.

After your day of exploring and adventure, Black Rock Mountain Resort also offers plenty of ways to decompress. Relax in the outdoor heated pool, detox in one of the many hot tubs, take a temperature-controlled sauna or unwind in the steam room. Cozy up by the outdoor fire and stargaze at our wide-open, indigo skies that light up under the roar of stars and the flash of constellations.

There is a reason that locals come for the winters and stay for the summers.

Like we said, countless activities for every season!
