Park City honors preservation work on ski slopes
THE PARK RECORD
Park City recently honored work at the site of the California-Comstock Mine on the slopes of Park City Mountain Resort with a Historic Preservation Award, given to projects that advance City Hall’s desire to ensure the historic fabric of the community remains intact.
City Hall, PCMR and a group known as Friends of Ski Mountain Mining History teamed for the work, which included stabilizing the wooden building with a foundation made of stacked stones.
A painting of the California-Comstock Mine commissioned as part of the award recognition, displayed by Rock and Beatlebrox, will hang at the Marsac Building.
The California-Comstock Mine work was previously honored by Preservation Utah, a statewide organization, with an annual award as well. The award was in the category of stabilization, restoration or renovation. City Hall, a Vail Resorts subsidiary and the Friends of Ski Mountain Mining History were listed as the nominees.

The Park City Council field is scheduled to appear together next week for the first time, gathering for a candidate forum that will be held as the primary election nears but also at a time when it seems the campaign itself has had difficulty seizing the attention of voters.
