Whatever the season, an activity-centric destination like Park City means visitors will be playing outside, just using different gear. Summer events include the Savor the Summit feast on Main Street (above). Among upgrades in town are a new pool and après-ski plaza at the Stein Eriksen Lodge.
• A new family-friendly pool area, the 56-seat Freestyle Movie Theatre and the ski-in/ski-out Champions Club Plaza were all part of a $14 million project completed last September at the 180-room Stein Eriksen Lodge in Deer Valley. The plaza features two fire pits and heated walkways. A new entertainment center draws in kids of all ages with high- and low-tech games; guests can grab a bite there at a casual restaurant.
• The 220-room Waldorf Astoria Park City is expanding its 4,000 square feet of meeting space with the addition of the new Summit Room. As part of the project, the resort’s fitness center is being transported to a spot overlooking the outdoor swimming pool. More details should be available in the spring.
• Montage International has announced the development of the Pendry Residences Park City, scheduled to open in 2021. The property will have 150 condominiums, many of which will be in a rental pool, and groups will have access to 7,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 4,000-square-foot ballroom.
• Opening this summer is the 46-room Lodge at Blue Sky, an Auberge Resort. The property will be an anchor for the outdoor-games destination on 3,500 acres. Hiking and biking trails, horseback-riding, fly-fishing and sporting clays are available on the grounds in summer, and guests go snowshoeing, cross-
country skiing, heli-skiing and fat-tire biking in winter.
• Opening in November 2019 is Woodward Park City, a sports-training facility for kids and families that also will offer options for team building.
• The 20-room Goldener Hirsch Inn is adding 40 residences that will be available for rent, to be completed before the 2020 ski season. The ski-in/ski-out property is mid-mountain at Deer Valley.
• Park City Mountain’s Cloud Dine now holds 200 more diners; and a renovation of the Mid-Mountain Lodge, carved from a 120-year-old miners’ boarding house, added more indoor seating, an upgraded outdoor dining area and new menus.
• At Deer Valley, $8.1 million was spent on improvements such as a new Homestake chairlift and a fourth trail for mountain-biking.

Among companies offering rides is Backcountry Snowmobiling, which takes up to 20 people out at a time for two-hour tours on a private, 40,000-acre ranch. One- to four-hour tours can be arranged with Rocky Mountain Outfitters.
