Getting outdoors during the shoulder season isn’t always easy and doesn’t necessarily appeal to everyone, even the biggest outdoor enthusiasts. So what’s a local trail riding buff supposed to do in Utah when it’s a bit chilly for ATV-riding and the snow hasn’t yet accumulated enough for the snowmobile season?
Take a look at some of our top picks for things to do in Utah in late fall and early winter:
- Visit Utah Olympic Park in Park City and follow a guided tour, hike the trails, and take on the Mountain Challenge.
- Get your holiday shopping done now so you won’t have that pesky distraction once the snow really starts to fly and you want to get outside.
- Get your personal snowmobile tuned up and ready for the amazing season of powdery trail riding that awaits.
- Spend a day on a scenic train ride aboard the Heber Creeper or the North Pole Express, departing from the Heber Valley Railroad.
- Gather some friends and head out to some of the state’s top microbreweries to see for yourselves why Utah’s craft brewing scene is thriving.
- Head to Bryce Canyon National Park or Zion National Park for a day hike to experience landscapes like no other and discover Utah’s wildlife.
- Go for a soak and tour of the Homestead Crater in Midway – an all-natural geothermal pool, in a crater.
- Plan and make arrangements for a perfect winter getaway: spend a day skiing at Snowbird, or hit the groomed snowmobile trails with Lofty Peaks to tour the breathtaking backcountry.
