"the mountains are calling and i must go."

Salt Lake International Airport is 35 minutes away. The recent expansion will be offering even more daily nonstops from around the country and around the world. The road to Park City is a major interstate (80E) and it is a beautiful, easy drive.
THREE World-Class Resorts (and More!)
Deer Valley, Park City and Woodward are located within five miles of each other. With the 2013 purchase of Park City, Vail combined Canyons resort and Park City Mountain Resort into one mega-resort: Park City. It is now the largest ski and snowboard destination in the country. Deer Valley remains one of the few resorts in the world to maintain a "skiers only" policy. Woodward is a state-of-the-art, action sports campus with outdoor and indoor facilities for the novice and the pro-level athlete. And then less than an hour away are Snowbird, Alta, Brighton, Solitude, Sundance, Snowbasin, Powder Mountain, and more.
Utah Olympic Park.
It is the training ground for all aerialists and mogul skiers, ski jumping/flying, and the bobsled, luge and skeleton teams. Olympians from all over the world come to train at this state-of-the-art facility. It is the home of the Alf Engen Museum and is open to the public. UOP offers year-round “experiences” for those who dare!
Something for Everyone.
Whether you are athletically inclined or prefer cultural and social activities, Park City does not disappoint. Year-round action includes snow sports, summer sports and many cultural events: concerts, theatre, art galleries, shopping, restaurants, art studios, festivals, farmers markets and more! Most locals will tell you that they “came for the skiing, but stayed because of the summer.” The Jordanelle Reservoir does not disappoint hosting a variety of water sports for every enthusiast during the summer season. Year-round activities are accessible in these beautiful mountains including 400+ miles of award-winning hiking and biking trails.
This town has so many wonderful public facilities and services of which you can take advantage: the free bus system, an incredible web of public trails, two huge recreational facilities (Basin Recreation and the Municipal Athletic and Recreation Center), the ice arena, a fabulous public school system and a full-service beautiful hospital. The charm of shopping on Main Street, over 50 restaurants, the Redstone entertainment/shopping hub and the free community events add to an overwhelming list of things to do!
The most compelling reason to love Park City is the people who choose to live here. Park City has a small-town feel, but it is supported by a very sophisticated, cultural community dedicated to making their lives, and the lives of others who live here, an enriched, fulfilling experience.
