The 10 Best Water Sports in Utah, United States

March 1, 2022 Margarita Chappel

Welcome to “The Greatest Snow on Earth” – Utah’s paradise for all outdoor enthusiasts! As host of the 2002 Winter Olympics, Park City knows how to entertain winter fun seekers. Snowboarders and skiers head for miles of spectacular slopes with deep fluffy powder and breathtaking mountain views. The Olympic Park provides family-friendly ski programs, rides and shows. Alta, Sundance, Snowbird and Brighton are other popular destinations for cross country and Alpine skiers. Those alluring snowy slopes turn to rolling wildflower fields in the summer. Golfing, fishing, horseback riding and water sports replace chilly outdoor sports adventures. Corral the family, pack a picnic and catch one of the ski lifts for an afternoon of hiking or mountain biking along scenic trails. Head to Salt Lake City, where Temple Square hosts millions of visitors a year. Bryce Canyon and Arches National Park are famous for surreal landscapes from horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters to unusual rock formations and hundreds of natural sandstone arches. Closer to home, wander along the quaint main streets of mountain villages to browse, shop and enjoy lunch at an outdoor café. At the end of the day, head home for an outdoor barbecue and an evening of games. Home rentals blend privacy, space and comfort with the cost-saving advantage of eating some meals at home.

Simply Fly Fishing

Fishing and Lying are synonymous, and we have a cure for that, it’s more Simply Fishing. We know how intimidating it can be, feeling like the new kid on the block. Fly fishing doesn’t have to be a frustrating experience. Our guides are seasoned veterans and will give you an experience that could be compared to winning your first jump rope contest: exhilarating. The name Simply Fly Fishing came about because of the commitment to make your fishing experience simple not complex. Our guides combined have spent more time on the Provo River, Weber River and countless other bodies of water here in Utah, than Robert Redford’s run in show business. The Provo River offers world class blue ribbon fishing that can cause the casual fisherman into an expensive addiction. We won’t pay for your rehab or pricey divorce, but we’ll take credit for getting you hooked. If you’re a novice angler wanting to learn the ropes or the out of town-er who wants to experience the beautiful Provo River.
