PCMR summer season on track to begin Friday
Make no mistake, the soppy spring weather will not deter Park City Mountain Resort from kicking off its summer season.
The resort’s summer season is still on schedule to open this Friday, May 27, according to Krista Parry, director of communications at PCMR.
"We’ve had a lot of snowfall this year," she said. "Our summer crew has been working hard for us to open on time."
Parry said the resort is introducing a few new activities to its summer-time offerings on the mountain.
There will be a new, two-person zip line that is scheduled to open sometime mid-summer that will also run in the winter months. Much like the alpine slide, the new zip line will load at the base of the resort, take passengers up the hill and then back down.
"This will just add to our off-slope activities in the winter," Parry said.
Parry said the new addition is really targeted toward youngsters. The required height to ride the new line is 42 inches and participants can’t exceed a combined 480-pound weight limit.
Another new addition will be the Adventure Zone, a play area for children 36 to 54 inches in height, which will be at the base of the resort.
Parry said there will be a spider web climbing area, a rock-climbing wall and a bouldering zone for youngsters. The Adventure Zone is scheduled to open sometime in June, Parry said.
"It gives us, again, another option for just trying to keep people here all day," Parry added.
The Alpine Coaster, Alpine Slide and ZipRider will be open for use this summer. Days and hours of operation until June 9 are: Sunday through Friday, 1 to 6 p.m., Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Regular season hours starting June 10 are: Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

A group of people that appeared to largely represent Park City’s development and real estate industries joined family members of the late United Park City Mines President Hank Rothwell on Wednesday as a road was named in his honor. It was a tribute to a key figure in the great growth battles of the 1990s.
