Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and the closer the day gets, the tougher it can be to think of what romantic things you can do with your sweetheart. But, don’t worry, your local Park City experts are here!
If you are lucky enough to live in Park City, UT, or are visiting over Valentine’s Day, here are some romantic dates and activities that you and your partner can enjoy.
Take An Intimate Sleigh Ride Together
With the lovely snow that Park City receives, going skiing or snowboarding is a natural choice. But, you can travel on the snow more romantically by taking a cozy sleigh ride together with your Valentine’s Day date.
There are multiple companies in Park City that offer private sleigh rides, so you have some options when it comes to booking. Just make sure you both bundle up so that you can enjoy the ride properly rather than shivering.
Unwind Together With Romantic Spa Treatments
Relax and unwind with your significant other on Valentine’s Day by going to one of the world-class day spas in Park City. Enjoy a couple’s massage, facials, or even a guided wellness class.
You can find spectacular day spas in Park City, some of which are associated with resorts and hotels, while other spas are independent. Either way, you may want to book soon, as spa treatments are very popular on Valentine’s Day.

Just south of Park City in the town of Midway, you can take your partner through the beautiful Ice Castles. Consisting of icy tunnels, caves, slot canyons, and frozen waterfalls, the Ice Castles have been built by artisans and are well worth a trip on Valentine’s Day.
As Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year, the Ice Castles open hours are from 4 pm – 10:30 pm with adult ticket prices being $17.99 per ticket.
Glide Hand-In-Hand While Ice Skating
If you are looking to have an active Valentine’s Day date, ice skating in Park City is a great option. Along with skating hand-in-hand, you can show off your skating skills then grab a warm drink afterward.
You can choose from indoor or outdoor ice skating while in Park City. So, depending on the weather, you have options to still have Valentine’s Day ice skating fun.
Enjoy World-Class Valentine’s Day Dining
A classic hallmark of Valentine’s Day dates is a romantic dinner, and Park City has plenty of world-class dining options. Some dining options are as straightforward as making reservations; however, you can bundle an experience with your dinner.
For example, dining at The Viking Yurt starts with a sleigh ride that takes you to the yurt. You can only reach the yurt by sleigh, so you need to be punctual, or you miss dinner and your unique experience.
Take A Couples Cooking Class
A fun and engaging bonding activity for you and your sweetheart is a cooking class. For Valentine’s Day, Mountain Town Olive Oil is putting on a class called ‘Cooking For 2’ that you and your partner can enjoy together.
This class costs $50 per person and has the option for you to add wine pairings for $15. The class will start at 1 pm and will require reservations, so if this cooking class sounds like a perfect part of your Valentine’s Day, be sure to get your reservations in.
Soar Together On A Private Hot Air Balloon Ride
There is nothing quite like soaring above the Wasatch Mountains in a hot air balloon, and you can share this special experience with your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day. You can schedule private hot air balloon rides or go on a group flight with one of the several hot air balloon companies in Park City.
Also, while the pilot light flames will help keep you warm during your flight, it is a good idea to bundle up before you take your Valentine’s Day ride.
Savor Valentine’s Day With A Wine Tasting
Indulge in a romantic wine tasting on Valentine’s Day when you go to the Fox School Of Wine class ‘Wines of Romance’. There will be five specialty wines included in this wine tasting class that you and your date can enjoy.
The class is from 6 pm – 7 pm and costs $44 per person. Naturally, you and your sweetheart need to be 21 years old or older to enjoy this special Valentine’s Day class.
Go On A Snowshoeing Tour
If you and your partner are more of an adventurous sort, then going on a guided snowshoeing tour may be more what you are looking for this Valentine’s Day. Rental equipment is available, and you can explore the Wasatch Mountains in a unique way with your special someone.
So, this Valentine’s Day in Park City, you don’t have to scramble to find something romantic to do with your significant other. Instead, pick out one or more of the activities above and feel confident that you are ready to romance your partner.
