Exploring Utah: Where To Find Outdoor Adventure in Heber & Midway Utah

What is there to do in Heber, Utah? What activities are there at the Homestead in Midway, Utah? In this video, Ryan Davis tells us about some of his favorite activities in the Midway and Heber, Utah area.

The Ice Castles in Midway draw a large crowd during winter months. Every season, a totally different ice castle is built, and it is made purely out of frozen water. Ice Castles are the brainchild of Utah-based ice architect Brent Christensen, who began building small ice structures in his Alpine yard in 2008. In 2009, Christensen built his first large-scale Ice Castle at Midway’s Zermatt Resort. In the three years since, Christensen has built Ice Castles in Colorado, Minnesota, New Hampshire and varies locations in Canada, with plans to expand into New Zealand. Christensen has patterned his design for Midway after well-known geological features across the state, like slot canyons, arches and cave-like tunnels. Guests are invited to not only view the beauty of the structures but also to squeeze, squish and crawl through parts of the stunning, Narnia-like display.
Past visitors have been awed by the palatial abodes, each of which are created entirely by hand, using only icicles and water as the building medium. Millions of icicles sparkle a glacial blue by day and glow multi-colored at night with the help of thousands of LED lights embedded in the ice.To learn more about the Ice Castles and buy tickets, click here: https://goo.gl/ceg293

One of the unique activities at our Midway Utah Resort is our one-of-a-kind Homestead Crater. The Crater is a geothermal spring, hidden within a 55-foot tall, beehive-shaped limestone rock located on the Homestead property. Over 10,000 years in the making, The Crater formed when melting snow on the Wasatch Mountains seeped deep within the earth. Two miles below the surface, the earth’s interior heated the water. As it percolated upward, it picked up minerals, which were then deposited on the surface — eventually forming the volcano-shaped limestone deposit called The Homestead Crater. The hole at the top of the dome lets in sunlight and fresh air while the interior stays heated by the mineral water at a constant range of 90 – 96 degrees Fahrenheit. Visitors can take tours, swim, scuba dive, and take SUP yoga classes in the crater. To learn more about the Homestead Crater, click here: https://goo.gl/94qnTs

The Crater Springs Golf Course at the Homestead is a par 72 course measuring 7,095 yards from the back tees and plays 5,091 yards from the forward tees. Golfers of all skill-levels can come to the golf course and enjoy beautiful surroundings while they play. To learn more about Crater Springs Golf Course, click here: https://goo.gl/Ct5EwL
