The Swiss Colonies of Valais isn’t in Switzerland, but nestled in the Mountain Valley of Midway, Utah, 45 minutes from Salt Lake City and 15 minutes from Park City. Founded by Swiss immigrants who discovered the fertile valley bottoms and lofty mountain peaks reminiscent of their European homeland, Midway today is one of Utah’s prime recreation and most friendly destinations.
The resort’s close proximity to recreation sites, fishing, parks, trails, reservoirs and protected wilderness area, make Valais Utah’s favorite vacation spot for family reunions and getaway weekends. Three major golf courses and 90 holes of golf are minutes away at Wasatch State Park, Soldier Hollow and the Homestead Resort. Robert Redford’s popular Sundance Resort is 20 minutes down Provo Canyon at the foot of scenic Mount Timpanogos. Deer Creek State Park and Reservoir and Jordanelle State Park and Reservoir offer Utah’s best boating, fishing, waterskiing and wake-boarding.
