An olympic-size sheet of ice provides hours of entertainment for the individuals that convene at Park City Ice Arena. Guests can lace up their skates and learn proper techniques during hockey and ice skating lessons. A special public skate session ? Cosmic Skate ? darkens the arena before illuminating the ice with colored lights. Technicians use sonar to measure the ice's thickness, ensuring that the rink is between 1.25 and 1.5 inches thick. The arena is also available for birthday parties and other events, with activities such as ice skating, curling, broomball, and sled hockey.

Classes at Park City Gun Club are tailored to the students, be they neophytes, advanced, or somewhere in between. Instructors combine classroom lectures with hands-on practice using a LaserShot system, which relies on laser-only firearms and various video simulations. From here, training can move to live-fire ranges, where sound-dampening and air-filtration technology contribute to a comfortable experience. Park City Gun Club also encompasses a pro shop with an extensive firearms selection, as well as an onsite gunsmith who cleans, repairs, and upgrades firearms.
In the river's crystalline ripples, one can glimpse momentary reflections of the wild grasses, evergreens, and mountain peaks looming above the water. Not far off, a bull elk bugles, projecting his call down into the river valley. This landscape attracts outdoorsmen from all over, and guide Brandon Bertagnole, a certified casting instructor with the Federation of Fly Fishers, helps them get the most out of every adventure. He takes fly fishermen out on trips to the Green and Provo Rivers, where trout hold in the cool, rock-strewn currents to await their next meal. For hunters, Brandon has access to an 8,900-acre private ranch. Trophy mule deer, elk, and moose roam habitats from wetlands to mountain shrub, which also give cover to pheasant for upland bird hunting. To facilitate each guided outing, Park City Outfitters' two-bedroom condo in Snow Country Condominiums accommodates up to six human guests or two elk in people clothing.
Helping visitors make the most of the picturesque surroundings, Park City Adventure Company guides groups on tubing, hiking, fishing, and biking adventures. Customers can climb into one of the company's Unimogs?giant off-roading jeeps?for a seated adventure, or hop on a mountain bike to explore beginner- to advanced-level trails. Meanwhile, tubing trips beckon groups to push out onto the water for a leisurely float through a Class II river.
The guides at Elusive Fly Fishing lead groups of fish seekers to Utah's choicest spots for casting lines and reeling in big ones. Prime locales include points on the Provo and Weber Rivers along with a handful of smaller waterways, where clients can get their hands on Rocky Mountain whitefish and trout varieties such as brown, rainbow, and brook. Half- and full-day tours include all necessary gear and a sack lunch. Lessons are available for beginners or those who need help ironing out the kinks in their casts.
