Located less than an hour from the Salt Lake City International Airport, a short 25 minutes from the Provo/Orem area, and a mere 15 minutes from Park City, sits the burgeoning mountain town of Heber Valley. The former site of the biathlon and cross-country ski events during the 2002 Winter Olympics, home to three expansive state parks with miles of pristine trails, and surrounded by mountain vistas, our charming valley has become a distinguished destination for day trips and overnight guests alike. With recent growth and major investments in infrastructure and lodging, Heber Valley is gaining momentum as the ideal mountain town for a cool, adventure-filled summer visit. The picturesque valley is the perfect way to enjoy one of Mother Nature’s favorite destinations.
Ample space and clean mountain air are what Heber Valley is all about. A visit to this alpine town means not sacrificing health or safety for a memorable experience. And getting here is easy. It’s deciding what to do that is the challenge. With so many summer activities and events, we call it “decision paralysis” for our visitors. Whether it be hiking, biking, or off-roading on our hundreds of miles of trails, riding the historic Heber Valley Railroad, enjoying a leisure round of golf (we have over 90 holes at three courses), relaxing with a spa treatment, taking a dip in a 10,000-year-old hot spring crater, or zip lining over the world’s longest 2-mile continuous course – there truly is something for everyone in our valley.
Oh, and did we mention dining and lodging? The Heber Valley is home to some of the finest award-winning cuisine and a true farm-to-table concept that is connected to our history as a farm town. Add to that a large variety of lodging from luxury resorts to nationally recognized brands to boutique bed and breakfast accommodations, and this well-rounded destination is an easy pick for your summer adventure.
