Summer in the Mountains

With the long cold spring almost in the foreground, I think that summer is finally in the air.  The snow has almost melted, leaves are coming out and the wild flowers are blooming, you have to love summertime in the mountains.  Deer Valley is just a few days away from kicking off its summer activities on Friday, June 18.  

My favorite part about summer is literally all of the music in the air.  June 23, starts our free concerts on Wednesday nights which are great for the whole family.  My husband and I love to bring our daughter up to have a nice picnic and enjoy the music. Then every Friday and Saturday evening through the summer the Utah Symphony plays in our outdoor amphitheater.  Other concerts I know I won’t be missing this summer are Earth, Wind and Fire presented by Big Stars Bright Nights on August 20 or B.B. King Blues Festival on August 24.  But the list of performances goes on and on.

 I am also looking forward to Royal Street Café opening for lunch on the deck.  I love to take in the whole experience by riding up the Silver Lake Express chairlift for a leisurely lunch. Then once I am there just sitting back to enjoy a blueberry mojito, the tuna tartare with the arugula truffle oil lemon salad and finishing it off with a piece of the frozen lemon meringue pie on a beautiful summer day. 

One nice thing about Deer Valley and the Park City area is all of the hiking and biking trails.  I love to hike, not so much bike, so hiking is something that I do year round but only get to enjoy Deer Valley trails during the summer.  My favorite hike at Deer Valley is leaving from the Snow Park area and taking the Tour de Homes trail up to Silver Lake.  There is nothing better than being outside taking in that deep breath of mountain air!

I hate to see winter leave but I have to say I am really looking forward to the lazy days of summer!
