Homestead Crater Is Hot Destination During Cold Days
MIDWAY, Utah – It’s a place on people’s bucket lists from all over the world — and it’s right in our backyard.
KSL TV’s adventure specialists Trace Worthington and Sean Smith headed to the Homestead Crater, a geothermal spring that features swimming, snorkeling, paddleboarding and scuba diving.
While the snow falls high above the limestone cave, the water temperature averages at 94 degrees.
“This place was formed over the course of 10,000 years,” said yoga instructor Blake Summers. “It was naturally formed by geothermally-heated water bubbling up from miles down within the earth.”
“We call this maybe the oldest yoga studio in the world,” he added.
Summers said stand-up paddleboard yoga inside a hot cave is one of “the most unique” things to do during winter in a ski town.
Private yoga sessions can be booked at parkcityyogaadventures.com.
Folks can even get scuba certified at the crater — where Sean got his certification. In fact, it’s the only warm scuba diving destination in the continental United States.
The Homestead Crater is open every day of the week, with times varying depending on the day. For more information, go to homesteadresort.com.
