45 years and counting
Park City Mountain Resort will celebrate its 45th anniversary Dec. 21. The resort opened in December of 1963 as Treasure Mountain, operated by the United Park City Mines, boasting the longest gondola in the United States. The ski area’s name changed to Park City in 1966. The resort has since removed the gondola, added high-speed chair lifts and helped to host the 2002 Winter Olympics. Today, the resort boasts 3,300 skiable acres and boasts four terrain parks. For more information, visit parkcitymountain.com or call (800) 514-3418.
