There’s no better way to celebrate the season than surrounded by the snow, the pines, and the upscale beauty of Park City. There are events being held all month long, so find something that piques your interest and participate in the spirit of the season!

The Big Night
The anticipation that will be building all month long will culminate into a magical night on December the 24th. There will be celebrations all over town, but a favorite for visitors and locals alike is the Traditional Torchlight Parade and Christmas Eve Celebration at Park City Mountain Resort. Beginning at sunset, you can drink hot cocoa, munch on cookies, and sing carols as you watch the torchlight procession carried by the Ski and Snowboard School make its way down PayDay Trail.
Party on New Years Eve
Park City boasts a nightlife that is unparalleled, even in bigger cities. The intimate venues, locally brewed spirits, and live bands make for a great celebration, especially on New Year’s Eve.
