No matter the time of year, there is always something to explore, see and do in the Wasatch. And at Summit Creek, our residents constantly seek to witness something new—whether that be via foot, snowmobile or otherwise. Here, their garages are filled to the brim with all of the necessary adventure gear needed to trek the Wasatch Range successfully. So, before you head out, here are a few essentials that will help fulfill your adventurous plans.
Snowboards, Skis & Boots
The Wasatch Range is on the western end of the Rocky Mountains, boasting many slopes for skiers and snowboarders—from Park City to Alta and beyond. The area is home to world class ski resorts and hundreds of miles of recreational opportunities. Along with snowboarding and skiing, the area is home to excellent snowshoeing, mountaineering and hiking trails that only quality boots can handle.
When the snow melts, hundreds of miles of mountain biking trails begin to reveal themselves. The Wasatch Range is home to expansive trails that boast a beautiful backdrop to explore and enjoy. Whether you are looking to trailblaze for a challenging workout or go on a leisurely bike cruise amongst the lush mountainscape, having a mountain bike and helmet is a must.
The Wasatch Range is home to many amazing fishing spots. Just a few miles away from Summit Creek is the ever popular Bear Lake—a Utah fisherman’s dream. Many refer to the lake as the “Caribbean of the Rockies” because of the vibrant turquoise waters that span for miles. The state park is home to many species of trout, whitefish, cisco, sculpin and more, making fishing gear a true necessity.
Want to explore more of the Wasatch Range? A fun toy to have with you is a 4×4 Ranger. This vehicle is a essentially beefed-up golf cart that can handle just about any and all terrains. Having a Ranger at the ready can help you get out and explore more grounds than you could on foot.
