As a four-season mountain destination, Park City offers the ultimate outdoor lifestyle all year long, from the snowy slopes of winter to the sundrenched trails of summer. Here, we spotlight five ways to maximize your outdoor living space, so you can make the most of Park City’s stunning great outdoors.
Heat It Up - A hot tub is a must in Park City and the number one home amenity requested by guests and visitors. Whether needing to soak sore muscles after a day of adventure, or simply unwind under the stars, cool, mountain air makes every evening ideal for a dip in the spa. The hot tub at 2755 Telemark Drive is situated for absolute privacy and to capture views of the surrounding nature. Placed under the cover of the terrace above, the spa can be enjoyed rain, snow or shine.
Ignite The Flames - Another way to enjoy a cool evening in the great outdoors is to gather around the fire. Fire pits and outdoor fireplaces offer more than warmth; they create a serene lighting effect while preserving the night sky for stargazing. Gathering by the fire to share stories from the day’s adventures is the perfect way to end the day at 8066 Sunrise Loop, the Mike Upwall-designed home in the prestigious Promontory Club. The outdoor entertaining space also boasts a 3,000-square-foot patio, horseshoe pit, dog run and sled hill.
Go Natural - Utah has a dry climate, so the best way to landscape in a resource-efficient manner is to use native, drought-resistant plants. Sometimes, this means using no plants at all, or creating the increasingly popular “Zeroscape.” Situated among mature pines on nearly two private acres, 700 Canyon Drive incorporates the surrounding greenery and nature into the living experience at every turn. Trickling water outside the front door meanders between the trees, while expansive decks with clear railings create viewing platforms and gathering spaces overlooking hundreds of acres of open space adjacent to the property.
Start Planting - There’s nothing better than fresh, homegrown fruits and veggies. One way to enhance the living (and culinary) experience is to reserve space for an herb and vegetable garden. Even a small outdoor space can accommodate a small, raised vegetable garden, allowing for your own personal garden-to-table dining experience in the comfort of home.
Go Out to Dine In - The ever-popular mountain contemporary design aesthetic is inspiring outdoor seating and dining areas. Dine in absolute comfort while taking in the mountain views, with seating to accommodate both formal and casual affairs. 5785 Trailside Drive features multiple outdoor dining spaces, one right off the living areas and one located in the center of the grassy lawn with a shaded trellis—the perfect place for an evening soirée.
