City Utah is the largest ski town and year-round resort community
in the state and just a scant 22 miles from Salt Lake City. Silver
was discovered here in 1872, but Park City struck gold when it opened
it's first ski area in 1946. It is now the home of the U.S. Ski
Team, Sister City to Courcheval, France, and was the site of the
2002 Winter Olympic Games for the GS, Slalom, Snowboarding, Ski
Jumping and Freestyle events. Park City hotels have something for
everyone and offer year-round recreation from skiing to golf!
City is unusual among western resort towns in that nearly all of
the surrounding land is privately owned, mostly by ski resorts and
mining companies. Many landowners have generously granted access
to cyclists and hikers and several have even built trails on their
property. Most of the trails in the area run on non-public lands.
