You’re the kind of couple that loves the great outdoors as much as each other. Some might choose the expected beachside lounging for their winter honeymoon, but you prefer more heart-racing pursuits with your newlywed. Embrace the winter season and your honey in Park City with romantic mountain views and powdery slopes made for adventure. Check these Park City winter to-dos for the perfect post-nuptial getaway.

Low-Maintenance Fun at Gorgoza Park

After carving up black diamonds, take a break and do some tubing at Gorgoza Park for a little low-maintenance fun. Lifts ensure there’s no breathless uphill trekking, and seven tubing lanes mean you can carve out a little romantic breathing room.

The details: Tubing under the stars and hot cocoa from on-scene Café Yurt is a powerful aphrodisiac. Gorgoza is open until 8 p.m. and tubing lanes are lighted.

Norwegian Hospitality in Utah

Restaurants play fast and loose with the term “dining experience,” but The Viking Yurt is more than a hearty meal atop a secluded, pine-covered hillside. A 23-minute sleigh ride there and back, and a showcase of Norwegian fare and hospitality are part of the package.

The details: The menu is prix fixe, so deciding what to get is easy. But getting on The Viking Yurt’s waiting list makes you a honeymoon hero. Book early. Have backup dates.

Snowshoeing With Pros

Impromptu forest tours on skis are a good way to spend your honeymoon in the hot tub trying to keep a cast dry. Snowshoe with pros at Utah Outdoor Adventures instead. Tours are $75, and include equipment and snacks. Snowshoeing is an intense workout, and you’ll likely see native wildlife doing their thing.

The details: Utah Outdoor Adventures customize romantic outings to include vantage points of 13,527-foot Kings Peak, or a hike to dinner under the stars. This is why #nofilter is a thing.

Main Squeeze on Main Street

Most ski villages feel like a movie set you could walk up to and push over, but downtown Park City is a genuine cultural epicenter. Find mountain chic at boutiques like, Deer Valley Signatures, or sleek winter looks at Hathenbruck. Conclude a lovers’ stroll down Main with live music at The Spur Bar & Grill.

The details: The Egyptian Theatre has been the jewel of Main Street entertainment since 1926. The couple that laughs lasts, so enjoy Stand-Up “Like an Egyptian.”

Go for Honeymoon Gold

A list of Park City winter activities for intrepid honeymooners has to include Utah Olympic Park. After the 2002 Winter Olympics, the complex was transformed into an extraordinary public sports venue, complete with obstacle courses and ice-skating. Cosmic Curling on Friday nights makes a peculiar sport even better with black lights.

The details: Nothing screams romance like whipping around hairpin turns in a bobsled. OK, perhaps not, but adrenaline junkies get the real deal on the Winter Comet Bobsled ride. Tickets start at $150 (and include a professional at the helm).
