JANS Summer Events and More

Here at JANS we like to keep ourselves busy outdoors. Whether we are spending time fly fishing on blue ribbon trout streams like the Middle Provo River, mountain biking IMBA Epic trails like the Mid-Mountain trail or hiking and climbing in the Uinta mountains, we always enjoy being outside in the mountains. Park City, UT is no different and the town overflows with a bevy of things to do in the summer. Check out these key events that are worth checking out while you’re in Park City this summer and see why people move here for the winters, but stay for the summers.
