Park City Skiing and Real Estate
The 2002 Olympics "let the cat out of the bag". Every year now sets another record number for skier/rider visits in Utah, yet compared to Aspen or Vail, CO crowds here in Park City don't exist. People are quickly finding out that you truly can fly into Salt Lake City and be skiing in Park City the same day (in fact you can do it for FREE!).
Park City's 3 world class resorts ( Deer Valley, Park City mountain Resort, and The Canyons ) offer nearly 9000 acres of skiing and riding in "the Greatest Snow on Earth" within 45 minutes of an international airport offering over 140 direct flights from across the country daily. Easy access to and from Salt Lake City makes Park City a great place to live or own a second home.
Outside of Park City, there are 6 other downhill skiing resorts within an hour's drive as well as cross-country skiing on the Olympic courses at Soldier Hollow in Midway (20 minutes away from Main St. Park City). The Ski Utah Interconnect tour provides a fantastic way to see 6 resorts (while on your skis) in a day. This trip will provide you with some great bragging rights, see: http://skiutah.com/interconnect
Park City's three resorts offer a wide variety of real estate opportunities ranging from converted historic mining shacks to swanky loft style condominiums to ski-in / ski-out retreats complete every imaginable amenityand never-ending views.
Each resort has a unique flavor of its own and should be skied or snowboarded a few times to know which resort provides you with a character that best suits your style. For more resort and local real estate information see:
