Over the last several years, Historic Park City has seen more than a few outdoor brands and athleisure brands open their doors joining longtime shops and boutiques that offer a variety of outerwear brands to customers. Park City’s active community and guests seeking outdoor adventure support this shift.
We walked the street seeking recommendations for you in advance of your next hike, bike, and the like. We started at the bottom of the street because if you are preparing for a hike it’s good to get a little warm up.
Park City Sport located across the street from the Town Lift between Collies and Atticus, offers a wide variety of apparel and accessories. They are best known for their ski rental program, but in the summer their shop displays a mixture of adorable and technical clothing. Featured brands include Prana, Mountain Hardwear, Salomon, Billabong, the cutest hats from Pistill, and Chaco. Primarily geared toward men and women, I did find a few winter items for kiddos. Park City Sport also offers Park City branded stylish apparel for that impossible to buy for friend or family member.
Bahnhof Sport is a one-stop shop for year-round outdoor adventure. Located close to the Town Lift, the store stocks fashionable attire, footwear, and sun protection for men, women, and children. Their women’s apparel is probably more adorable than technical, and I was happily surprised to find swimsuits available. They are well-known for timely sales allowing you to stock up on off-season items for unbeatable deals. Get here now for the best selection.
Bahnhof's selection of hydration packs and trail accessories will keep you prepared on your outdoor adventure. Their bike rental program includes electric bikes, full-suspension and hardtail mountain bikes, and cruisers. Conveniently, you can return bikes at any Aloha location throughout town.
Aloha – Offers a collection of casual attire and accessories for both summer and winter. Aloha offers similar brands to Bahnhof but carries the more technical lines from these brands. The store is smaller, which allows you to find exactly what you need and get on the trail quickly rather than getting distracted stocking up on next season’s outerwear. Favorites include items from Kuhl and Toad & Co. for both men and women.
Historic Main Street is also home to flagship stores from outerwear brands Marmot, Patagonia, the North Face and Kuhl.
If you haven’t visited a Patagonia store in the last few years, you should fix that. Patagonia continues to carry the same high quality, sustainable clothing and outerwear you’ve always loved, and now carries fashionable activewear that is just as comfortable on the trail as it would be for a night on the town. Men, women, and children can find daily play clothes, swimwear, and outerwear for all four seasons.
The Marmot store offers a selection of Marmot branded apparel plus a variety of items for camping and hiking including hiking poles and sleeping bags. Marmot is committed to designing the highest quality performance product available and is probably one of the only places to find a sleeping bag in Park City.
The North Face shop offers a large variety of apparel, shoes and bags for men, women and children. I’d recommend the North Face as a one-stop shop for the entire family wanted to get outfitted for a day in the mountains. Children’s products are better suited for kids 5 and up, although they do offer a few items for babies and toddlers.
Kuhl is located at the top of Main Street across from the Historic Egyptian Theatre. KÜHL® is what it means to be comfortable and relaxed in the challenging environment of life and sport. Kuhl products are offered up and down Main Street, but the Kuhl store on upper Main is the brand’s flagship retail location and offers the best variety of men’s and women’s apparel. As a brand, Kuhl has captured the concept of mixing adventure with lifestyle and provides products that can be worn from the office to your après adventure, whatever that may be.
A final note – Active wear has come along way from the early days. Researching for this blog post was beneficial both to my wardrobe and my wallet as I was able to stock up on winter wear from footwear to headwear while also picking up dresses, leggings, and accessories for myself and shorts and button-ups and tees for my husband and toddler, and none of us will have to sacrifice fashion on our outdoor adventures. Now, that’s what I call a win-win.
