New options for coming season at PCMR
Even as the lack of snow delays the opening of Park City Mountain Resort (PCMR) until Wednesday, Nov. 23, there are still plenty of new features on the mountain that will give Parities and tourists a reason to get excited.
According to PCMR director of public relations, Krista Parry, most of the new features at the resort are at the Legacy Lodge. One of the biggest changes? Legends Bar and Grill has been relocated to the Plaza Level and has a more social feel.
"It’s a special place to eat, hang out with friends," Parry said. "We believe it will help the aprs ski atmosphere up here."
The new Legends features a bar on one side and the restaurant on the other with a large fireplace separating the two. Parry says that the setup lends itself to sitting and enjoying time with friends.
Legends isn’t the only business that has received a new look. Legacy Sports also has been expanded to help meet all of the needs of mountain visitors; Christie’s Coffeehouse has been remodeled to create a more authentic coffeehouse feel. The area is now enclosed to provide intimacy and warmth, and will continue to offer a full selection of specialty coffees and teas as well as pasties, breads and muffins. Upstairs in the lodge, PCMR has installed a creperie, which will serve freshly-made sweet and savory crepes on a European crepe machine.
"We’re trying to bring a more European feel," Parry said.
The creperie will also feature a salad bar, fish tacos and fresh pastas prepared in front of the patrons.
Things are also new out on the snow. PCMR will soon offer the world’s largest superpipe. The new pipe has 22-foot walls — five feet higher than the previous superpipe and will be made by PCMR’s new superpipe cutter. In the world of programming, private lessons can now be purchased for up to six hours a day, far more than the one- and two-hour lessons previously offered. Also, the Kid’s Mountain School has been renovated with brightly-colored walls to keep kids entertained. PCMR is also preparing to offer a series of telemark clinics. "Telemark Tuesdays" will meet once a week from 5-7 p.m. from Jan. 3 until the end of March. They will offer a learn-to-telemark class for $25, as well as a telemark workshop, which allows more experienced telemarkers to work with an instructor.

Thanks to COVID-19 cutting into visitation numbers, Park City’s seasonal workforce is sufficient. In any other winter, “the hiring situation would be dire.”
