Park City, Main Street, Utah, Historic

Park City Main Street

Silver mining started the city that eventually incorporated in 1884. Park City's transformation to one of the premier skiing destinations in the world was marked by the first ski lift installation in 1946.

Park City, Utah

Bookmark and Share

Park City is probably best known for its resort status. Though technically more Wasatch "back" than "front," Park City is fast overtaking, and indeed surpassing, the resort playgrounds of other states. Once a silver mining camp (the Hearst fortune began at Park City's historic Ontario Mine), Park City began reinventing itself in the early 1960s with the opening of the Park City Ski Area, now known as Park City Mountain Resort. Since that time, other resorts and facilities, such as Deer Valley Resort and Canyons, have caught onto the idea that great all-season terrain and a kickin' nightlife make for a dynamite destination experience. Each resort has an abundance of amenities for even the most discerning visitor, but of special note is Stein Erickson Lodge, a five diamond-rated lodge and an experience like no other. Speaking of luxury, the Park City area has had three major players in the industry open in the past year or so with the Waldorf Astoria Park City, the St. Regis Deercrest, and finally the Montage at Deer Valley opening in the winter of 2010. Park City's Historic Main Street plays host to restaurants, and clubs, as well as boutiques and specialty shops. Each January, film buffs, movie moguls, and glitterati descend on Park City for the Sundance Film Festival, (a great time to book a ski vacation, because everybody else is going to movies and the lift lines are minimal). The rest of the year is just as exciting, with events like the Park City Arts Festival, the Deer Valley Music Festival, featuring the Utah Symphony/Utah Opera, and more. Back up the road, near I-80, is the Utah Olympic Park, the venue for several events during the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, including aerials, ski jumping, luge, skeleton, and bobsled competitions.

Culture and Heritage Activities
Park City had its beginnings as a mining town in the mid-nineteenth century. In 1872, one of Park City's silver mines called the Ontario Mine was sold to George Hearst for $27,000. The mine went on to produce fifty million dollars in the following years, forming the basis of the Hearst family fortune. Today, Park City has become a world-class ski destination and resort community. Historic Main Street is now populated with shops, galleries and museums, including the Kimball Art Center. The town's Egyptian Theater, home to music and dramas,
is also a bustling venue for Sundance Film Festival screenings each January. For more information, visit www.visitparkcity.com.
