The surest place to watch sports in Park City is a sports bar, like Doolan’s Sports Bar and Grill, Burgie’s Sports Bar and Grill, or Flanagan’s On Main, where you can catch the game of the day on TV. But in the winter, a day on one of the town’s three world-class mountain resorts should be enough action to tide you over — watching some of the extreme skiers fly down the mountain will make you feel like you’re at the Winter Games. If you’re lucky, or just plan ahead, you can catch some of the 2012 FIS Freestyle World Cup, which takes place on Deer Valley’s 2002 Olympic ski runs in the beginning of February 2012. If you miss it, just stop by one of the terrain parks at Canyons Resort and Park City Mountain Resort to watch in awe as snowboarders catch big air.
For live professional sports, head to nearby Salt Lake City. The capital city is only a 45-minute drive from Park City, and is home to the NBA’s Utah Jazz, Real Salt Lake Major League Soccer team, Salt Lake Bees Minor League Baseball team and Utah Blaze Arena Football Team.
