By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Jun 21, 2017

Old Town Cellars in Park CityPark City is back in National Geographic again, this time in America’s 20 Best Mountain Bike Towns - To foster authentic bike culture, a town needs more than just high quality trails. These 20 mountain bike hamlets around the country (in no particular order) offer bucket-list rides, new trail development, a variety of outdoor recreation, and a fun, bike-friendly vibe. Bike on.

Park City, Utah - The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) designates destinations as “ride centers” when they offer something for every rider, from backcountry epics to beginner-friendly singletrack. Of the 37 in the world, the first gold-level status was awarded to Park City. Beyond the sheer quantity of trails—about 400 miles of singletrack—Park City’s active and productive bike community has helped link them in a highly functional, user-friendly network.

Park City’s trail options include long, flat cruises, intermediate rolling terrain, and alpine singletrack with challenging climbs and thrilling descents. There are even lengthy tours like Mid-Mountain and Wasatch Crest. Plus, Deer Valley, Canyons Resort, and Park City Mountain Resort (now one property) all offer lift-assisted riding, which makes access to the higher alpine trails even easier. Gravity aficionados flock to Canyons Bike Park for its freeride trails (the lifts also access 20 miles of cross-country trails).

The town of Park City boasts scores of bars and restaurants, affordable accommodations (for a ski town), tons of kid activities, and cultural events like concerts.

Only a few weeks away is the Park City Food and Wine Classic July 6-9, 2017. This is the event where master winemakers, culinary greats, and distinguished guests gather to play, wine, and dine in beautiful Park City, Utah. Experience more than 100 food artisans, wineries, breweries, distilleries, epicurean purveyors, and locally-made products at this ultimate food and wine experience.

Whether you are a full-fledged foodie or an emerging gourmand, you are sure to find more than one event to whet your appetite at the Classic. There is something for everyone – from food and wine tastings, to seminars and cooking demonstrations, to outdoor adventures with food & wine influences, there are tastes and temptations at every turn.

Tickets - Tickets are now on sale for all seminars and another great year of events.

Schedule - From Grand Tastings to outdoor adventures and seminars, there’s so much to do.

Beneficiary - The Park City Food and Wine Classic is proud to benefit the People’s Health Clinic, a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization providing quality healthcare to the uninsured in Summit and Wasatch counties.

Next week we dive into the Park City Transit System (Electric Buses) and other upcoming events around town.

Our Favorite Town

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Jun 14, 2017

Our favorite town is no stranger to awards and accolades. So this week we thought we would share a few of the publications that rank Park City among the top cities and towns in American (and even the world). There may not be a perfect place, but if you ask us (and apparently editors and travelers across the globe) Park City is pretty close.

Conde Nast Traveler - #1 Friendliest Cities: Park City is a "friendlier and more casual" mountain town, where even at the height of winter ski season or the Sundance Film Festival in January, "the locals were extremely friendly and welcoming." World & U.S. - #1 Park City, Utah & The Best Small City in the U.S #6 Park City, Utah

An iconic mountain town frequented by ski buffs and Sundance festees, Park City was this year voted one of Traveler’s friendliest cities in the world—and for good reason. Though most popular in the winter, Park City shines in all seasons: For spring, summer, and fall hiking and mountain biking, the city has nearly 400 miles of maintained trails. Mark off time for a stroll (or two) down picturesque Main Street, and don’t miss nearby Utah Olympic Park, which comprises a museum but is still used as an Olympic training facility today.

L.A. Times 17 Destinations for 2017 - #8 Park City is 45 minutes from the Salt Lake City airport. It has an old-fashioned Main Street. And it has the biggest ski resort in the country: Park City Mountain Resort, which combined with Canyons Resort in 2015, setting off changes all over town.

Chef John Murcko’s Firewood Restaurant opened in December at 306 Main St. At 314 Main, visitors can browse landscape photos at David Beavis Gallery. At 509 Main, get caffeine from Pink Elephant Coffee Roasters. At 738 Main, get a sugar fix at Peace, Love & Little Donuts. At 890 Main, taste wine at Old Town Cellars, a private-label winery. (All opened in 2016.)

Trip Advisor Top Destinations on the Rise #2 Only 35 minutes from the SLC Airport, Park City's rugged beauty is complemented by over 100 restaurants and bars, open air concerts, numerous spas and health clubs, plays, independent film screenings, a series of world-class events and festivals, and as many kinds of lodging as there are people.

Travel & Leisure - America’s Favorite Towns #1 Outdoor bliss meets artistic street cred: America’s winning town offers snow, sunshine, and a good chance of celeb-spotting. Readers gave the city near-perfect marks for its weather and for its festivals—thanks in part, no doubt, to winter’s Sundance Film Festival. Since Utah has relaxed its liquor laws over the years, Park City also scored well with readers for wine. Choose from the extensive wine list at Glitretind, at Stein Eriksen Lodge, or the long list of bottles at the new Main Street hotspot Tupelo, whose artisanal menu includes such delights as Rocky Mountain Elk Bolognese.

America’s Favorite Mountain Towns - No. 1: Park City, Utah - When the local mines closed, Park City, Utah, turned its ambitions above ground—to its 7,000 acres of Olympic-level ski terrain—helping it transition into one of the country’s premier resort destinations, and this year’s favorite mountain town. Off the slopes, everyone converges on historic Main Street, flanked by a mix of adventure outfitters, galleries, and restaurants—including Tupelo, chef Matt Harris’s ode to elevated Rocky Mountain cuisine. Sundance Film Festival brings in the A-Listers, who feel at home in the town’s luxe hotels, like Stein Eriksen Lodge, a Norwegian-style chalet.

Sunset Magazine - 2016 Best Adventure Town - Ski towns have long been about much more than a day on the slopes. Park City, Utah, just happens to be more fun than many others; the winner for best adventure town has a gently sloping Main Street lined with shops and farm-driven eats.

The state of Utah is also a great place - For the 10th year in a row, Utah earns the top spot for states with the best economic outlook, followed by Indiana, North Carolina, North Dakota and Tennessee, according to a recent American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) report, Rich States, Poor States: ALEC-Laffer State Economic Competitiveness Index. The annual publication is celebrating its 10th edition with the launch of a new website that gives users the ability to compare and contrast economic trends of the last decade, featuring a new tool showing how particular policy adjustments can change the economic outlook ranking of an individual state.

State lawmakers have relied upon Rich States, Poor States as a guide for measuring the economic competitiveness of their states since 2008. The publication is authored by Dr. Arthur B. Laffer, a member of Ronald Reagan’s Economic Policy Advisory Board, Stephen Moore, distinguished visiting fellow at The Heritage Foundation, and Jonathan Williams, ALEC Chief Economist and Vice President of the ALEC Center for State Fiscal Reform.

“For an unprecedented ten years, since the very founding of Rich States, Poor States, Utah has reigned as number one in terms of economic outlook. This is largely due to the state’s many responsible fiscal policies, including an efficient and lean state government, a low overall tax burden and the state’s right-to-work status,” said Jonathan Williams. “In addition, the public sector pension reforms of 2010 have undoubtedly benefitted Utah in the rankings. Congratulations to the Utah legislators who consistently show their dedication to protecting hard-earned taxpayer dollars and promoting a strong state economy."

Neighborhoods and Activities

Nestled beneath the beautiful slopes of the Wasatch range and just minutes away from Park City’s Main Street and Salt Lake, the communities of Pinebrook, Jeremy Ranch, and Summit Park offer perfect single family home and condominium options for commuters and outdoor enthusiasts.

With out-the-door access to Flying Dog and other legendary Park City trail systems, these communities offer some of the best recreation in the area. As for amenities, Pinebrook is home to numerous restaurants, yoga studios, and grocery stores, which create a strong sense of community among these adjacent neighborhoods. Jeremy Ranch also offers golf via its private club and manicured full course.

In terms of real estate: Jeremy Ranch is known for spacious single family homes that are bathed in sunlight and feature dramatic views. Pinebrook consists of a wide array of entry, custom and luxury home options that make this neighborhood popular among Millennials. Just up Parley's hill from Pinebrook, Summit Park offers secluded homes encompassed by mountain wilderness and numerous trail systems that award adventurers with stunning views of the Salt Lake Valley.

For anyone looking to be within easy driving distance from Salt Lake and all the recreational options Park City has to offer, be sure to look at Pinebrook, Jeremy Ranch, and Summit Park real estate.

June marks the beginning of summer in Park City. With the opening of summer resort operations, visitors and locals can make the most of world class downhill biking, chairlift hiking, rides and mini golf at the bases. With our award-winning trail system, blue bird weather, and championship golf options, we are truly an all-season community. Not-to-miss events include the mouth-watering Savor the Summit dinner, when Park City restaurants come together to line Main Street with tables for an evening of communal fine dining that draws the whole town. Also, be sure to get your Oakley Rodeo tickets--one of our favorite events of the year.

Golf Community Sales - Summit and Wasatch counties are popular amongst golfers, and the number of vacant land and single family home sales in our golf communities gives strong evidence of this trend. With over 300 sales in the past twelve months in Glenwild, Promontory, Hideout, Tuhaye, Red Ledges, and Victory Ranch, buyer demand remains strong and will likely continue, especially during the summer months. With a wide array of price points, new build options, and ample community amenities, it's no wonder that many second home buyers are investing in these neighborhoods.

With courses now open, make the most of our local golf options and explore your living options in these highly sought after micro-market areas. Reach out for more information on our local golf communities.

Spring In Park City

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
May 24, 2017

Spring is here and even with our snow capped mountains temperatures are reaching the 70s during the day. With Spring means that each Wednesday, Canyons Village at Park City will once again host Park City's Farmers Market in the Cabriolet parking lot. Stop by for fresh produce, fresh baked bread and arts and crafts from local vendors. Canyons Village Cabriolet Lot 1815 Canyons Resort Drive. This also means that the The Last Friday Gallery Stroll is coming up giving locals and Park City visitors alike the opportunity to enjoy light refreshments while exploring Park City’s exciting art scene. During the Last Friday Gallery Stroll—6:00–9:00 p.m. on the last Friday of each month—members of the Park City Gallery Association offer a unique monthly showcase highlighting artists, special exhibits and art events.

Park City is back in the news making the top ten for America's Greatest Places You Absolutely Have to Visit During Spring By Jay Gentile. Park City, Utah - Spring shoulder-season deals make this time of year the cheapest to visit Utah's most well-known resort town. While it has a reputation for celebrity sightings during Sundance, in spring it's just another laid-back mountain town up for pretty much anything. Strolling or riding the free trolley down its picturesque Main St is a must, and there is perhaps no finer activity than basking in the spring sun over a few pints of craft beer on the rooftop of local hangout No Name Saloon. Nearby Salt Lake City is one of the most underrated (and cheap) destinations in America, while the surrounding Wasatch Mountains are as good a place as any to lose yourself in nature.

National Geographic also has Park City in their top picks for America’s 20 Best Mountain Bike Towns - The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) designates destinations as “ride centers” when they offer something for every rider, from backcountry epics to beginner-friendly singletrack. Of the 37 in the world, the first gold-level status was awarded to Park City. Beyond the sheer quantity of trails—about 400 miles of singletrack—Park City’s active and productive bike community has helped link them in a highly functional, user-friendly network.

Park City’s trail options include long, flat cruises, intermediate rolling terrain, and alpine singletrack with challenging climbs and thrilling descents. There are even lengthy tours like Mid-Mountain and Wasatch Crest. Plus, Deer Valley, Canyons Resort, and Park City Mountain Resort (now one property) all offer lift-assisted riding, which makes access to the higher alpine trails even easier. Gravity aficionados flock to Canyons Bike Park for its freeride trails (the lifts also access 20 miles of cross-country trails).

Park City even joins the most recent edition of VOGUE in Ed Droste Trades Sunny LA for 2 Mountain Retreats - Simon and I headed up to Park City, Utah to stay at the masterful Washington School House Hotel. As luck would have it, we were upgraded to the top-floor penthouse. Our brains essentially exploded upon arrival and learning that an ambassador for the city had created a killer itinerary for us, including top-notch food at High West Distillery and endless days of skiing both at Park City Mountain (it has recently been overhauled and is now massive) and the more old school Deer Valley.

Have a great week - Ramon and The Gomez Team

Market Recap & May Events

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
May 17, 2017

Following up on the last two weeks of blogs the Summit and Wasatch County markets remain varied and complex to read, but stable in terms of positive growth. In Park City limits, when compared with last year's first quarter, there has been only a 1% change in average single family home price, suggesting an overall stabilization of the market in town. However, in key development areas like Canyons Village, there was a doubling in the number sales and a 22% increase in average price, suggesting pockets of intense growth where there is new inventory. Similarly, gated golf communities remain popular, and Red Ledges, Glenwild, Tuhaye, and Promontory all saw an increase in the number of sales and in average price. (Remember the Mini Markets that make up Park City)

New condominium projects continue to boast the greatest buyer activity. With 190 condo sales, Jordanelle was the single most active market segment, closely followed by Canyons Village with 177 sales. These newer developments, which feature modern amenities and a range of prices, continue to resonate with sophisticated buyers. This trend is likely to continue with other new projects like those at Canyons Village and Silver Creek Junction.

In Wasatch County, Heber and Midway are the most active single family home markets with 218 and 109 sales, respectively. With new builds, attractive prices, and stunning views, these towns have seen tremendous real estate growth, which we predict will continue. To better navigate our complex market, reach out for information and options.

It is now golf season in Park City! You've Skied America's largest resort, now golf Utah's newest course. Canyons Golf Opens May 26th as well as Summer in the Mountains.

A Record Season

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Apr 05, 2017

BHHS April 2017RECAPPING A RECORD SEASON - 2017 was one for the books. Consistent powder storms flurried down all season, leading to deep bases at the resorts and several days of over-the-head snow for skiers and boarders. All 14 Utah resorts made the most of the winter, and skier visits are up across the state. Park City in particular celebrated the precipitation with locals and visitors alike coming off the slopes with grins and high-fives. Both Park City Mountain and Deer Valley report the highest number of ticket sales...ever. As the town continues to strategize around responsible growth, we're glad folks from around the world came here to taste our found-nowhere-else lifestyle.

The winding down of the ski season brings celebrations of all sorts, including the annual pond skimming contest, Spring Gruv concert series, and resort Easter hunts. Between the Eccles Center, Egyptian Theatre, and Ballet West, it's also a great time to be a culture vulture. Here are some of the upcoming events not to be missed. BHHS SeasonSpring Gruv 4/2-4/9

Spring Skiing In Park City

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Mar 22, 2017

RamonSpring Skiing is here and we are making the most of our time on the mountain. After hitting the slopes I read a great article yesterday I wanted to share by Jordi Lippe-McGraw for the Huffington Post - 5 Things Every East Coast Skier Should Know About West Coast Skiing. Jordi said "Our go-to spot was Killington, Vermont, and I have very fond memories of hitting the slopes with my dad, enjoying family meals by the fire, and taking a dip in the hot tub.But, aside the occasional side trip to upstate New York or Connecticut, this was the only skiing I ever knew. That was until I took my first West Coast ski trip to Park City, Utah. After hearing about the record snow fall the area got this year (and the lack of snow New York got), I decided to book a quick three-day getaway to the famous resort area. My assumptions were it would be pretty much the same as east coast skiing, so I should know what to expect. Right? Boy, was I wrong. Here are five things every east coast skier should know about west coast skiing: The Snow Is Scientifically Proven To Be The Best, Gourmet Meals Are The Norm At Ski Lodges, the Hotel Rooms Are Basically Luxury Homes, It’s Not Miserably Cold On The Slopes and You Can Ski All Day Without Doing The Same Trail Twice." Click here to read the entire article.

Park CityIt seems a lot of people are writing about their first trips to Park City and I wanted to share this one too - 8 Best Things to do in Park City, Utah by Andrea Traynor. Andrea describes herself as the Indulgent Traveling Mom and here are her 8 best things to do in Park City: Ski and snowboard in champagne powder, Eat at Tupelo, Vessel Kitchen + Deer Valley’s Seafood Buffet, Bobsled at Olympic Park, Go snowmobiling, Visit High West Distillery, Take the free trolley, Be fabulous in the Veuve Clicquot yurt, Stay at Black Bear Lodge and Read on for all of the details!

Snow And Food In Park City

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Mar 08, 2017

Kid-Friendly-Rest-LargeWe feel the best way to find out about Park City, other than reading our blog, is to talk to a local. Park City locals have been rated some of the friendliest people in the country by a few different national magazines and they are always available to help. Before you go in search of a local Parkite for advice read the rest of this blog and we will see you next week.

We came across a great article by RootsRated - 9 TIPS FROM LOCALS ON HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR PARK CITY WINTER VACATION and they state Park City, Utah, is arguably most famous for hosting the Sundance Film Festival and the 2002 Winter Olympics. But beyond its rich history, this mining town turned ski mecca has plenty else to offer winter visitors. Don’t believe me? Take it from locals who live, work, and play in this mountain town— there’s more to Park City than celebrity sightings. We talked to locals who make Park City home year-round, and they helped us come up with 9 tips to make your winter getaway even better. The article covers the important things such as - skip the rental car, have a drink, check out the food scene, try all the winter sports, experience the Olympic Park, talking with the locals and reading the Park Record.

While we are on the topic of outdoor activities in Park City - Ski Utah posted - Seven Stunning Utah Chairlift Rides - Utah's 14 resorts offer some incredible skiing. From moguls and groomers to chutes and drops, you'll be hard pressed to find more accessible and diverse terrain anywhere. If that's not enough, the lifts you use to get to all that fantastic skiing offer some of the most spectacular views around. You can read the entire article in the news section on our website.

We can't resist sharing articles when Park City is in the news and even The Seattle Times included our lovely town in 5 places to visit in the U.S. in 2017 - Park City is 45 minutes from the Salt Lake City airport. It has an old-fashioned Main Street and the biggest ski resort in the country: Park City Mountain Resort, which combined with Canyons Resort in 2015, setting off changes all over town.

One of my favorite things about Park City are all the restaurant choices. Meisha Lawson wrote a great article about the Kid-Friendly Dining Options In Park City. It’s no secret that there are a lot of places to get good food in Park City, it’s a little harder to tell which ones are kid-friendly. Park City is a pretty casual town, but you’ll find a mix of casual to upscale dining. Her are some of her recommendations: Red Banjo Pizza Park City’s oldest restaurant. Davanza’s is a local favorite, Vinto is on lower Main Street, The Bridge Café and Grill is right next to Town Lift so a great place to start your day and grab breakfast or lunch, Back Door Delicatessen is right on the corner of Swede Alley and Heber Avenue near the 4-way stop. The Eating Establishment is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Wasatch Brew Pub is the first brewpub to open in the state of Utah. And, it’s also very kid friendly and Bandits’ Grill & Bar meets all of your BBQ needs.

Park City Adventures

As the massive snowflakes mount outside my window I want to share this great article by RootsRated - 72 Hours of Adventure: How to Have an Unforgettable 3-Day Weekend in Park City, Utah - Beth Lopez shares "With a place as action-packed as the Park City area, it can actually be a dizzying endeavor to dial in a specific agenda of what to do. Obviously there’s lots of skiing and snowboarding, for every ability and interest. The two resorts’ sizes and breadth means there’s something to entertain the most demanding terrain park adventurer, groomer enthusiast, mogul guy, or powder buff. But there’s a lot more to the area than that, and if you only have a long weekend to spend, you’ll want to get fairly targeted in how you spend your time. Here are a few amazing ideas from a local’s point of view (although next time please stay longer, because we’re filtering out approximately 300 other fun things to do)."

Whether you're a beginner or an expert, you can't go wrong with Utah ski resorts - Even Dallas, Texas writer Robin Soslow writes: When experience levels run the gamut, picking the right ski resort can be hard. But in Utah, you can't go wrong. "The range of terrain is unbelievable, from beginner to advanced. Everyone from little kids to Grandpa will have a phenomenal experience," says Chad Magleby, a custom home builder currently building Stein Eriksen Residences, a new ski-in/ski-out development in Deer Valley, one of the world's top ski resorts. Magleby tells me many Texans have been buying there after coming to ski in Utah year after year.

Looking to be inspired and motivated - the ThinAir Innovation Festival will be back in Park City April 5 - 7th. Thin Air is a 3-day retreat - and break from the routine - to inspire, elevate, collaborate, explore and celebrate high performance. The 2017 agenda will will explore how Performance Leadership is attained by the cultures we develop, the data we utilize, the customers we attract and the products we create. The 2017 lineup will include 40 speakers and guests from diverse industries and backgrounds who will share how to reach and maintain full potential.

Snow and Food in Park City

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Feb 08, 2017

_DSC0452

January has come and gone and brought the most snow fall our fine state has seen in nine years. SKI Utah published a great article, JanuBuried, that breaks down the amount of snow fall at the top resorts. So where does January 2017 rank historically? Well, reliable monthly resort data is often hard to find. We do know we’ve had very snowy months before -- ones in which Alta received over 200” of snowfall. But even in our monumental 2010-11 season, we never saw this many inches of snow in one particular month. You have to go back to the 2007-2008 season to find a month in which Alta received this much snowfall. That means this is likely the snowiest month in at least 9 years. 

Bon Appetit published Ask a Local: An Insider's Guide to Park City, Utah and it shares our great restaurants around town as well as places to stay. One of my favorite parts of the article is about breakfast - Where is the best place to grab breakfast? Tupelo does an amazing brunch. It has Southern-style dishes like fried chicken and kimchi biscuits and crab fritters. Another one on Main Street that’s quicker and more grab-and-go is Riverhorse Provisions. It just opened a few weeks ago, and serves breakfast sandwiches, along with great poutine and breakfast bowls. I also go to Vessel Kitchen a lot for shakshuka and avocado toast. It’s more of a fast casual set-up. If you’re up for a drive, about 20 miles away there’s Woodland Biscuit Company. It’s in the middle of the mountains in a refurbished old building, and serves homemade biscuits. Check out the rest of the article to find out about more great places around town.

DOWNTOWN also came to visit Park City and posted Downtown Visits Beautiful Park City, Utah by Darren Paltrowitz. When the opportunity came to travel to Park City, I jumped at the chance. 35 minutes by car from Salt Lake City International Airport — a hub of Delta Airlines, with direct flights to New York, London, Paris and Amsterdam — Park City’s population is well under 10,000 residents. However, the 2016 Sundance Film Festival alone brought 46,660 people from 42 states and 16 different countries to what Forbes Traveler Magazine voted as one of the 20 “prettiest towns”; the same publication also voted Park City as one of the “16 Top Destinations for 2016.” As one of the world’s premier skiing destinations, Park City had its first ski lift installed in 1946. Combined with what many call “the Greatest Snow On Earth,” Park City has two major ski resorts in the Deer Valley Resort and the Park City.

One of my favorite articles this month is by the Huffington Post, Park City’s Local Secrets, The people in Park City are humble, kind, and eager to get to know you. I found a lot of the people I met were transplants who fell in love with the area upon visiting. They told me that they come for the winter and stay for the summer claiming it is just as beautiful in the warmer months with a number of fun outdoor activities.

Looking for things to do this month - here are some of the local happenings:

All Month Snowshoe Tours of the Preserve

All Month Midway Ice Castle

2/10-2/26 The Sleeping Beauty at Ballet West

2/13-2/17 KPCW 2017 Pledge Drive

2/17-2/18 Mozart's Requiem at Utah Symphony

2/24-2/25 Alvin Ailey at the Eccles Center

2/25 Rebelution at Park City Live

IMG_1126It's snowing in Park City! Yesterday the Park City schools were closed for the first time in many years as kids and adults spent most of their day outside enjoying winter activities. It is snowing again this morning and if you have not been on the mountain yet, now is the time. Not a mountain skier or snow boarder like me? Well, this town is full of other activities for you like - snow shoeing, fat-tire biking, skate skiing, cross-country skiing, hiking, sledding, ice skating, and the list goes on.

Sundance is around the corner with the 2017 competition lineup including sixty-six provocative films from 22 countries running January 19th - 29th right here in Park City. The five main categories include: The U.S. DRAMATIC COMPETITION - presents the world premieres of 16 narrative feature films, the Dramatic Competition offers Festivalgoers a first look at groundbreaking new voices in American independent film. U.S. DOCUMENTARY COMPETITION Sixteen world-premiere American documentaries that illuminate the ideas, people and events that shape the present day. WORLD CINEMA DRAMATIC COMPETITION - Twelve films from emerging filmmaking talents around the world offer fresh perspectives and inventive styles. WORLD CINEMA DOCUMENTARY COMPETITION - Twelve documentaries by some of the most courageous and extraordinary international filmmakers working today. NEXT - Pure, bold works distinguished by an innovative, forward-thinking approach to storytelling populate this program. Digital technology paired with unfettered creativity promises that the films in this section will shape a “greater” next wave in American cinema - Presented by Adobe. Read the full article at The Park Record.

Individual tickets for Sundance will go on sale to Park City and Salt Lake City from January 11th -13th after which sales will open to the general public. For more information click here.

Travel+Leisure loves our little town. In this month's edition the latest article The Best Places To Travel In January adds Park City, Utah to the list. If you prefer to take advantage of the snowy winter while you still can, nothing beats the slopes of Whistler and Park City. America’s largest ski destination is now under new ownership by Vail Resorts. The mining village still maintains much of its charm—the boutiques on Main Street, the ski-in, ski-out distillery—but now has all the perks of a major resort, like ultra-speedy lifts and great restaurants. Best of all, the snow is as great as ever.

No blog is complete without sharing about some great facts about Park City and in this case the state of Utah. Forbes ranks Utah as the best state for business ... again! Forbes ranked Utah so high for a number of reasons, such as the state's high growth aspects and the number of new businesses that open every year. The state's government is also dedicated to helping new businesses, making the legal aspects of starting a business relatively friendly in Utah.

We hope your holiday season has been full of cheer and we wanted to share some of the fun events going on between now and the end of the year here in Park City!

Dec 07, 2016

The MooseTravel + Leisure has named Park City, Utah America's Favorite Town! Here's part of their post: Outdoor bliss meets artistic street cred: America’s winning town offers snow, sunshine, and a good chance of celeb-spotting. Readers gave the city near-perfect marks for its weather and for its festivals—thanks in part, no doubt, to winter’s Sundance Film Festival. Since Utah has relaxed its liquor laws over the years, Park City also scored well with readers for wine. Choose from the extensive wine list at Glitretind, at Stein Eriksen Lodge, or the long list of bottles at the new Main Street hotspot Tupelo, whose artisanal menu includes such delights as Rocky Mountain Elk Bolognese.

Not only are we America's Favorite Town we are also home to North America's largest ski resort! Park City Mountain Resort has over 7,300 acres and 314 runs. Vail Resort linked two of North America’s greatest ski areas to offer skiers of all abilities access to Utah's legendary snow.

In addition to endless skiing, the Park City mountains offer innumerable real estate options from luxurious condominiums at Waldorf Astoria and Hyatt Centric to exquisite townhomes, Vintage on the Strand and Juniper Landing to estate lots and homes in the gated community of The Colony. Whether you're looking for ski-in/ski-out access in a contemporary setting with on-site amenities, or your own private gathering spot, there is a property for you, including new development ski-in, ski-out opportunities at Lift and Apex, and the golf townhomes of Viridian.
