RECAPPING A RECORD SEASON
2017 was one for the books. Consistent powder storms flurried down all season, leading to deep bases at the resorts and several days of over-the-head snow for skiers and boarders. All 14 Utah resorts made the most of the winter, and skier visits are up across the state. Park City in particular celebrated the precipitation with locals and visitors alike coming off the slopes with grins and high-fives. Both Park City Mountain and Deer Valley report the highest number of ticket sales...ever. As the town continues to strategize around responsible growth, we're glad folks from around the world came here to taste our found-nowhere-else lifestyle.
March is one of Park City's busiest months, with Park City Mountain's annual Spring Gruv, which culminates in the pond-skimming contest (April 4th) and leads with a variety of free outdoor concerts. From the Egyptian Theatre to the Eccles Center, our mighty mountain town offers world class music, film, and speakers. Don't miss out on this month's line up.

The 2017 Sundance Film Festival starts the 19th, and we’ve got our cameras ready to snap shots of all those famous folk who are mingling outside the places we usually buy coffee. While Sundance brings film, art, and culture, it can also be a bit of a nuisance…especially if you have a car to park. Here are some tips to enjoying the fest and avoiding the hassle.
If you can, ditch the car.
It’s impossible to drive, park, buy gas, etc… during Sundance. For fun, we recommend renting a fat tire bike at White Pine Touring. It facilitates travel, allows you to people watch, makes you feel really good about reducing your carbon footprint, and it’s fun! Or, utilize Park City’s extensive bus system. While it is possible to walk between many of the…
