The Crater at the Homestead Resort
Snow is on the ground, but that’s no reason to pass up a dip in Utah’s natural waters—especially if it’s nice and steamy.
The Crater at the Homestead Resort in Midway is a geothermal spring hidden in a 55-foot-tall beehive shaped hill with a hole at the top, which formed over 10,000 years as melting snow from the Wasatch seeped into the ground and heated by the earth’s interior, made its way to the surface. And going into these waters is essential for any Utahn.
The resort created a tunnel through the hill for easy access to the crater’s water, which is 90–96 degrees. Guests swim, snorkel or just enjoy a therapeutic dip. You can even get your scuba diving certification at The Crater.
