Afterward, we will enjoy a private brunch in a high alpine peak overlooking the valley and surrounding moutainscape.
Explore the Utah Olympic Park
We'll learn about the amazing stories of Olympic achievement and tales of the Utah Olympic Park as we explore the Utah Olympic Park.
Are you an adrenaline-seeker?
There are two optional Olympic-style experiences that are calling your name!
Optional Experience # 1 - Get your heart pumping with a bobsled ride with a professional driver who'll gain speeds up to 60 mph in less than a minute! Don't worry, the bobsleds are fitted with wheels in the summer so they are ready to slide right down the cement track.
Optional Experience # 2 - Tube down the Nordic Hill (Yes -the ski jumping hill!) for an incredibly fun experience sliding down the lower half of the hill. There are two different heights to choose from – 60m and 90m.
We’ll all end the afternoon at the Flying Ace All-Stars Freestyle Show - catching the high-flying action of Olympians, National Team skiers, and snowboarders perform acrobatic feats. They will soar up to 60 feet in the air before landing in the Park’s Olympic Freestyle Pool.
Explore Park Silly Sunday Market
We’ll get a real feel for the funky, tight-knit Park City community at the weekly Park Silly Sunday Market.
This open-air farmer’s market feels like a street festival, transforming the street into a spectacle of delicious gourmet food, art, crafts, antiques, one-of-a-kind finds, music, performance art and costumes.
Score yourself some bargains or pick yourself up a unique, regional handicraft.
Enjoy lunch from a street vendor (lobster rolls and Bloody Mary’s are popular choices) or pop into one of the refined eateries along Main Street for lunch.
Nature Bathing in Silk Hammocks
We'll start our Sunday adventure with a stunning hike on the Wasatch Over Wasatch trail into Utah’s famous Aspen groves for nature bathing in silk hammocks. A guided meditation, while floating effortlessly above the forest floor (with tea!) is sure to resonate your energy and awaken your senses to the forest.
Paddleboard Yoga in the Utah Crater
We'll practice yoga atop stand-up paddleboards and experience the fountain of youth at the oldest yoga studio in the world (over 10,000 years in the making) during a session of Paddleboard Yoga in the Utah Crater! Encased in 55-foot beehive-shaped limestone rock, the Homestead Crater’s Caribbean-blue waters instantly transport you from the mountains of Utah to pure bliss.
The hole at the top of the dome lets sun and fresh air in while the crater’s therapeutic geothermal spring with 95-degree and 65-feet deep mineral water keeps it warm and inviting.
Anyone can do Paddleboard Yoga even if you’ve never done yoga or been on a paddleboard. This experience will be tailored to the group's experience and fitness level. It's meant to be recharging and fun! The boards will be attached to a leash around your ankle for safety, and life jackets are available as well. We will also be hooked onto attached lines in the crater for more stability.
If there's an experience that you do not wish to participate in,
you're always free to opt out and enjoy some downtime at Runaway Janes' Mountain Escape
or make your own arrangements to do another activity. Nothing is mandatory!
