Heber and Midway area 4 26Did you know that just outside of Park City, there’s a wide open range of activities that you can enjoy all year round? Here’s a quick look at one our favorite of the outlying areas — Heber City — and things you can do and see there.

Heber City is located just 15 to 20 minutes from Park City and is a wonderful town to visit. If you are a golf enthusiasts there are two great courses — The Homestead and Wasatch State Park. Both of these courses offer golfers beautiful scenery to enjoy a round or two.

Ice Castles in Midway is open from late December to March (weather permitting) and offers visitors a winter wonderland full of extreme ice sculptures. You can walk through archways, tunnels, glossy rooms during this architectural ice adventure.

If you are looking for a snow-based adventure that doesn’t involve skis or boards, check out Soldier Hollow Tubing. This attraction features 1,200 foot lift-served sliding lanes. You can enjoy this winter fun day or night, and you’ll love the wonderful sound system filling the air with your favorite tunes.

Take a tasty break and visit the Heber Valley Creamery. This creamery offers a variety of artisanal cheese and other dairy delights such as raw milk and ice cream.

Freshman Livi Underwood Leads Team to State Championship

By Todd Anderson
Nov 02, 2015


The team at and Keller Williams Park City is pleased to recognize Park City High School’s Livi Rockwood.

Rockwood recently led the Park City tennis team to a state title. Rockwood, a freshman is Park City’s No. 1 singles player, defeated Madz Eames from Desert Hills in the finals 4-6, 6-1,6-0. In an interview, Rockwood blamed her slow start on nerves.

Rockwood said that her opponent was playing well, while she was making a lot of mistakes. She said, "I was just thinking I needed to be confident in my strokes and then, whatever happened, I could come off the court saying I tried.”

She also said that after the first set her coach Tamarin Espinoza told her that it’s a new start and she could basically start over. She continues saying, “I just went for it.”

Coach Espinoza says that Rockwood played beautifully — even in the first set. The coach said that Rockwood may have been affected by “freshman jitters” and having so many people cheering against her.

Taylor Matz, Park City’s No. 3 singles player and a sophomore, also won a title after defeating Morgan Matthews from Grantsville. Matz had been battling a shoulder injury for the majority of the season. She said she was glad her shoulder held up during the finals. “It felt good to win, especially since I was nervous about my shoulder.”

Overall, the entire team advanced to the second day of the tournament. Coach Espinoza said, “This was a team effort.” She continued by saying that the fact that everyone made it into the finals helped the team achieve the state title.

Espinoza said that her team benefits from playing against local Park City community members in practice matches. She indicated that recreational and league players would play against the varsity team, which she said was a very positive thing.

Now that the team has the title under their belts, the members are looking forward to defending their championship title. All members, except one, will be returning next year, and the team will also be adding two strong freshmen.

Matz said that with the strength of the team, she thinks that they can take the title again next year. The coach said that it is “going to be nice coming back as the defending state champions.”

Again, we at KW Park City Keller Williams Real Estate, and extend our congratulations to the Park City High School girls tennis team.
