An escape to Deer Valley in any season of the year presents opportunities for kids of all ages to have a good time. This is a fabulous family-friendly place to visit. Deer Valley Resort has a Children�s Center where parents can drop off their non-skiing children (ages two months to twelve years) for a day filled with fun while Mom and Dad hit the slopes. This center is licensed and offers activities such as story telling, crafts, singing, and playtime with toys.
For children and young adults who are ready to ski, Deer Valley offers a variety of runs that are suitable for young skiers. The resort also offers professional lessons to kids. These lessons are available one-on-one or in groups. Deer Valley instructors are specifically trained to teach children, so learning will be fun and help the child develop better skiing skills. This is a excellent way for kids to work on their skills while their parents challenge themselves on more difficult terrain. Lessons are available for children as young as three.
For travelers are interested in visiting Park City, there are many fun activities offered both winter and summer at the Park City Mountain Resort. For small children, Little Minors Park offers fun such as a merry-go-round and choo-choo train. This little park allows you to include even the tiniest tot in the fun. Another great feature of this area is the human maze, where kids can work their way through a larger-than-life-labyrinth. In addition, there is great fun for the bold child who can don a harness and try his skill at the climbing wall or jump and flip on the trampolines of the Legacy Launcher.
This area also has an Alpine Slide. The rides are open to children as young as 2 as long as they’re with an adult. Alpine Slide includes a chair lift ride up the mountain followed by sledding down a track to the bottom. The ride back down can be slow or fast depending on your use of the brake. A newer attraction is the Alpine Coaster for those who want the thrill of an amusement park in a beautiful mountain setting. The entire family can also join together in a round of miniature golf on an 18-hole course. For families traveling a little further, just miles from Park City�s center is the Utah Olympic Park which has its� own excitements to offer.
No matter what season it is, this area offers fun for kids of all ages. There are activities to fit every price range. Going on hikes or bike rides in the summer and snowshoeing, sledding, or skating in the winter are fun, low-cost things to do as a family. Downtown Park City boasts kid-friendly dining and lots of places to purchase an ice cream cone to top off a day of fun.
