SKI THE BEST IN THE U.S.
Deer Valley Resort receives top honor as the Best U.S. Ski Resort for 2018
U.S. Ski and Snowboard seeks hundreds to volunteer for largest ski competition in Park City since Olympics
A volunteer for the Visa Freestyle International Ski World Cup event at Deer Valley scoops loose snow onto the aerials course during a break in competition in January.
It's about a month and a half until the 2019 FIS freeski, snowboard and freestyle World Championships kicks off with snowboard cross on Solitude Mountain on Feb. 1.
Organizers expect the International Ski Federation event, which is set to take place at Deer Valley Resort, Park City Mountain Resort, and Solitude Mountain Resort, to be the largest winter sports event in the Park City area in terms of spectator turnout since the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
6 Reasons living in Park City is a dream come true
Whether you’re looking for a better job or just a general change in lifestyle, you’re not alone. People live their whole lives looking for the perfect place to put down roots. It’s not always easy, but if you open your mind to new experiences, there’s no telling what you might find.
Park City is a gem among amazing cities that dot the Beehive State. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to live in both the city and the country, well, Park City is the answer. Once a silver mining town, Park City houses some of the world’s top-ranked ski resorts, golf courses, biking trails and even schools.
Here are seven reasons living in Park City will help you find that perfect fit you’ve been searching for:
Winter throughout the United States varies; for some climates, it just means lots and lots of rain and for others, it means a miserable season of freezing-cold temperatures. Surprisingly, Park City boasts 222 days of sun a year, according to bestplaces.net. You’d be hard-pressed to find that type of weather anywhere else, particularly where there’s world-class skiing outside your door.
Instead of holing up and adding to your winter weight when the temperature drops, why not move somewhere it’s impossible to get bored because there’s so much to do? A host of resorts in and around Park City are some of the best in the nation. Whether it’s skiing, snowboarding or even tubing you prefer, the Greatest Snow on Earth provides you with myriad winter opportunities.
Did we mention there’s a lot to do in Park City? Well, if you’re still not convinced, take a look at the summer to-do list: hiking, biking, horseback riding, fishing, golfing, paddle boarding, boating, bird-watching, concertgoing — there’s plenty to do if you are willing. The mountain biking trails stretch nearly 500 miles and accommodate all skill levels and have earned the Gold Level Ride Center distinction from the International Mountain Bike Association.
Park City is also home to seven golf courses, many of which hold championship endorsements. If you’re not outdoorsy, don’t underestimate the farmers' markets, art and music festivals, and opportunities to view theatrical productions and more.
If you haven’t heard yet, Park City is also home to some of the greatest eateries in the United States. Locals come from all over, which means the community tapestry is a rich and diverse fabric of people, talents and viewpoints. You don’t have to put up with terrible traffic and high crime rates to get the advantages of city life; just choose the right city: Park City. You can sample the restaurants at the annual Savor the Summitevent, or stop by any of them year-round to get a taste of what’s possible, such as the famous Riverhorse on Main.
Just like any other town, Park City has a rich and unique history. What started as a silver mining boomtown grew into a premier place in Utah for culture and recreation. Stroll down Main Street and view the quaint shops, or visit the Park City Museum or the Utah Olympic Park to learn more about more recent historical events. Best of all, Park City and those who live there are creating their own new history: one that will remain unique and meaningful to all who live there.
Not only are Park City schools some of the top schools in Utah, they are also ranked some of the top schools in the nation. Private and public schools alike are available in the Park City area, with some schools even having a reverse schedule to accommodate those involved in winter sports. So if family considerations are a big factor in where you move, know that Park City will certainly deliver the goods for adults as well as children.
Live better for less
Many who move to Park City come with expectations for a certain lifestyle. Those coming from states like New York and California will certainly appreciate the reduced cost of living, whether that comes in the form of lower sales and property taxes or just plain old cheaper food and housing.
Utah ranks in the middle for taxes on a national level, and Park City has one of the lower tax rates in the state. With so much beauty for much less than most other popular urban hot spots, many agree that Park City is the best-kept secret around.
Real estate is booming and now is the time to invest in land and homes that are high in value, which also promise the potential to make meaningful memories. Amid the beauty of the slopes and the year-round entertainment the city offers, there’s little else you’ll need.
