Park City, Utah: Historical Mining Town Turned Ski Mecca
Park City has humble roots as a mining town nestled in the Wasatch Range east of Salt Lake City. But in the past 30 years or so, the town has blossomed into an international skiing destination. That’s largely due to Park City Mountain Resort. Each winter, the mountain is blanketed with an average of 365 inches of snow, which means plenty of fresh powder across more than 100 ski runs and three terrain parks. In the warmer months, you can weave your way through groves of trees on miles of hiking and mountain-biking trails. The Alpine Coaster, which stays open year round, hurtles down the mountain at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour.
Back in town, Park City’s former saloons and boarding houses have given way to more than 100 independent boutiques, 30 art galleries, and 50 restaurants along Main Street. For about 10 days each January, Park City glams it up Hollywood style as the host of the Sundance Film Festival. When Sundance isn’t in town, you can catch a play, concert, or comedy show at the circa-1929 Egyptian Theatre.
Located on the main drag, the Park City Museum chronicles the town’s history with artifacts and interactive exhibits. In the eerie basement, you can check out the former territorial jail—a dim dungeon with stone walls and rusted leg irons. In the space between cells, Wanted posters depict the outlaws, murderers, and thieves who passed through the subterranean slammer.
