Park City climate question--

We will be leaving this month for our Park City trip and I'm wondering what to pack. Are the hotels (we're at Stein Eriksen) that are up in the mountains noticeably cooler than Park City itself, or is Park City also at a high elevation? I've been to other places in the country where the hotel that was up in the mountains was much cooler than the actual city, which was at a much lower elevation. I plan on packing layers, but I also don't want to over pack, or not pack enough.

Park City is at 7000 feet. Stein Ericksen lodge is a bit above 8000. So it will be a bit cooler up there.

I lived in Park City for 12 years. When the sun goes down, the temps drop significantly. You will definitely want an warm outer layer - fleece, or similar - regardless of where you are in the town of Park City. Park City is at 7000' above sea level.

Yah, for sure pack warmer clothes for evening. You do get cooler with elevation. You'll notice PC as a whole is significantly cooler than Salt Lake City. It will be slightly more pronounced up at Stein's though not a ton more than in town.

Have fun.

Days will be nice - so you can pack lighter by bringing a jacket and sweatshirt or evening.

Stein Erickson is nice and you may want business casual or a bit nicer for dinner if dining out there.

Days can be in the 70s degrees nights mid 40s....

Actually, the average daytime temps in Park City in July is 83 degrees. Night time temps average 49 degrees. However, we have been in a serious heat wave for the last couple of weeks with temps about 10 degrees higher than normal.

Yes, I’m planning on packing a variety of clothes, from somewhat dressy to stuff for hiking and horseback riding. Didn’t know it got into the 40s at night in July, though.

Also, we have plans for a 9:00 am horseback ride, starting from Stein. I plan on wearing jeans for practicality purposes, a T-shirt and probably a hoodie.

Doubtful you'll need the hoodie by 9 a.m. But you'll be able to tell that with a quick walk outside.
