Park City Information
Deer Valley Resort
Park City is a city in Summit and Wasatch counties in Utah. It is one of two major ski and outdoors resort towns in Utah, the other being Moab for mountain biking. It is considered to be part of the Wasatch Range Back and also a southeast part of the Salt Lake City metropolitan area. The city is 32 miles east of downtown Salt Lake City and 15 miles from Salt Lake City's east edge of Sugar House along Interstate 80 Freeway. The population was 7,371 at the 2000 census. On average, the tourist population greatly exceeds the number of permanent residents in winter.
After a population decline following the shutdown of the area's past mining industry, the city rebounded during the 1980s and 1990s through an expansion of its popular tourism business. The city has three major famous ski resorts: Park City Mountain Resort, Deer Valley Resort, and The Canyons Ski Resort. The Park City and Deer Valley ski areas were the major locations for ski and snowboarding events at the past 2002 Winter Olympics. Although they receive less snow and have a shorter ski season than do their counterparts in Salt Lake County, such as Snowbird ski resort, they are much easier to access from Salt Lake City.
Park City's outdoor-oriented businesses such as backcountry.com and Rossignol have their headquarters based right in Park City. The city has many upscale luxury designer retailers, night clubs, bars, and fine restaurants, and has many nearby reservoirs, hot springs, forests, and hiking and biking trails. Park City is also the original home of the Mrs. Fields Cookies chain.
