Park City:
An Outdoor Paradise

Park City is an outdoor paradise in the summer. It is home to some of the most beautiful lakes and rivers, pristine hiking trails, vistas and legendary road and mountain biking in North America. This is a place retailers and brand teams want to go for vacation – so we decided to return to a place we’re all excited about.

Easy Airport Access

Getting to Park City is super easy. It’s located just 40 minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport. Take a shuttle, Uber, or rent a car for the quick drive to Park City.

Great Weather

In August, Park City averages highs in the low-80s, lows in the upper-40s, and only an inch of rain for the whole month. With an elevation of 7,000 feet, it’s ideal for outdoor recreation.

Suprisingly Affordable

Park City may be home to the rich and famous in the winter – but in the height of the offseason, we’ll have the mountains, trails, and nightlife to ourselves. 

I want to go! How do I register?
