About Park City

Long before Park City became a world class mountain resort and venue for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, it was famous as a silver mining town, and boasts a lively and colorful past. Founded by prospectors in the late 1860's, Park City continued to mine silver until the early 1970's. The mining company, Park City Consolidated Mines, started the ski business in 1963, when they built the first lifts on what was then called Treasure Mountain. The Park City area now has three world class resorts: Park City Mountain Resort, Deer Valley Resort, and Canyons Resort.   For more about Park City's past, please visit the Park City Historical Society and Museum website at www.parkcityhistory.org.

LOCATION

The Wasatch Mountains have harbored this gem community for thousands who come here to work and play. Nowhere is the meaning of Utah's slogan, "Life Elevated" more apparent than in this resort community just 36 miles east of the Salt Lake City International Airport on a major interstate, I-80. Dear Valley Resort and Canyons Resort are within five miles of each other and Park City Mountain Resort between them plays host to many thousands of visitors each year.
