Gorgoza Park

Located in beautiful Park City two miles east of Parley’s Summit off of I-80, Gorgoza Park offers fun snow play for all ages. Open daily until 8pm throughout winter and into spring, as long as the snow is awesome, the seven lift-served tubing lanes; pint-sized, kid-friendly mini-snowmobiles; and the Fort Frosty play area, especially designed for children under six years of age, provide family adventures and memories that will last a lifetime.
