2023/2024 Winter Park City Local Events and Entertainment

Winter has arrived here in the Wasatch Back! All of our local resorts are open, and following this past weekend's impressive storm cycle, many are boasting solid snow depths. More snow is expected this coming weekend.

The other BIG NEWS is that Salt Lake City has been named the Preferred Host for the 2034 Olympic Winter Games! This means that SLC is the runaway favorite for the 2034 Winter Games. However, the final announcement will not be made until next summer. We will make sure to keep you posted as this story continues to develop.

In the meantime, the 2023-2024 winter season promises familiar festivities and events. This newsletter is packed with information about all the exciting activities you can enjoy in the upcoming weeks and months.
