Entrepreneurial Spirit

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
May 23, 2018

Park City is filled with entrepreneurs and companies that have made a positive impact in Utah and around the world. Business Chief recently shared that Amazon has named Utah as the most entrepreneurial US state - A new study from leading US ecommerce firm Amazon has revealed the top 10 most entrepreneurial US states, with Utah topping the list.

The study looks at the US states with the most SMEs per capita selling on Amazon – a platform that see’s millions of enterprises selling goods across the world. “More than 300,000 small and medium-sized businesses from across the U.S. that started selling on Amazon in 2017, and we’re working hard to help them all keep growing,” said Nicholas Denissen, Vice President of Amazon. Utah is followed by California and New York, with Colorado, New Jersey, Washington, Florida, Delware, Massachusetts and Oregon rounding out the top 10 respectively.

“It is exciting to see Utah at the top of our list ahead other great entrepreneurial states like California and New York,” said Denissen.

“From incredible handmade artisans to small businesses inventing sustainable and eco-friendly products, there are thousands of Utah-based businesses demonstrating a tremendous entrepreneurial spirit — more per capita than in any other state.”

More than half of the items sold across Amazon come from SMEs, accounting for a significant proportion of the business done on the world’s largest ecommerce platform.

CNBC MAKE IT recently shared  The Most Hipster Cities In The World and Salt Lake City is on the list. To determine its new International Hipster Index, Movehub, an international relocation company, combed through data for 446 cities across 20 countries, excluding cities with populations below 150,000. They looked at five data points, including the number of vegan eateries, coffee shops, tattoo studios, vintage boutiques and record stores per 100,000 city residents.

While the United States might have dominated the list — with seven U.S. cities cracking the top 10 — the most hipster city in the world goes to Brighton and Hove in the United Kingdom. Located in the country's southeast region, this coastal city is described by Lonely Planet as "without doubt Britain's most colorful and outrageous city." It ranked in the top four for three out of the five data points: Vegan eateries, coffee shops and record stores.However, the U.S. still dominated the top 10 with seven hipster hubs, with many of them located in the Pacific Northwest region, as well as Florida.

The top 10 most hipster cities in the worldaccording to Movehub, are:

1. Brighton and Hove, United Kingdom

2. Portland, Oregon,United States

3. Salt Lake City, Utah,United States

4. Seattle, Washington,United States

5. Lisbon,Portugal

6. Fort Lauderdale, Florida,United States

7. Miami, Florida,United States

8. Orlando, Florida,United States

9. Helsinki,Finland

10. Spokane, Washington,United States

The millennials list makes sense as LADDERS listed Utah as one of the states where you’ll find the highest-earning millennials. Personal finance site WalletHubput together an analysis of the top cities for millennials (Pew Research Center defines millennials as being born from 1981 to 1996) based on rankings that didn’t include which cities have the best avocado toast or the most Instagrammable neon signs.

The study looked at job earnings, unemployment rates, voter-turnout rate and affordability (the cost of a Starbucks latte was factored in) as well as education and health. So which states got the best ratings? Well Utah is on it.

D.C. comes out on top - Our nation’s capital not only has the highest percentage of millennials living there, but they are also earning the most. Other cities that saw high millennial earning averages included New York, Massachusetts, Washington, and California. North Dakota managed to snag that No. 2 spot thanks to its affordability and percentage of millennials living in the state (second only to Washington D.C.).

  1. Washington D.C.
  2. North Dakota
  3. Minnesota
  4. Massachusettes
  5. Iowa
  6. Wisconsin
  7. Utah
  8. Nebraska
  9. Colorado
  10. South Dakota

Park City Real Estate

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
May 16, 2018

The housing market Gets Hotter in the West according the MReport. A study of 16,000 U.S. zip codes by Realtor.com found that, overwhelmingly, the ZIP codes seeing the fastest movement of homes are in the West. Nationally, the report stated, houses are generally on the market for an average of 78 days. But in the 20 markets where homes sold fastest in Q1, they sold after an average 21 days on the market; in the top three ZIP codes, in fact, barely past three weeks. That reflects “a pattern that other markets hope to replicate. In fact, we speculated as to whether Salt Lake City, Utah is the ‘New Denver’ earlier this year and now we see Salt Lake City breaking into the top 20 ZIPs.” Salt Lake, in fact, finished 20th on the list. Homes there moved in an average 21 days during the quarter.

Looking to rent a bike this weekend, Summit County has implemented new features for the electric bike share program. Summit County is hoping to add more station kiosks later this summer. The stations will likely be located at the Snyderville Basin Recreation Fieldhouse, in the Silver Springs and Trailside neighborhoods, City Park in Park City, and, eventually, at the Jeremy Ranch park-and-ride lot and another park-and-ride lot expected to be built at Ecker Hill. An additional 42 bikes were added to the fleet this season to help handle demand, according to Caroline Rodriguez, Summit County's regional transportation director. Also, a stricter system will also be in place to reduce users from riding the bikes outside of the authorized zones.

Triathlete posted a great article that we wanted to share - Head to Utah and follow our advice on where to swim, bike, run and more in this active mountain town. This friendly mountain town sits just under 7,000 feet—that’s 1,500 feet higher than Boulder for those counting—and boasts 400 miles of trails, sunny days with low humidity, and a welcoming, athletic culture. Visit in summer or early fall to experience the best of this under-the-radar training hub.

Stay Here - Local lodging experts Stay Park City make it easy to find accommodations, whether you’re looking for a lux hotel or comfy vacation condo. Plus, the company sponsors a local cycling group—so clearly they have good taste.

Swim Here - You can find lap swim and masters groups in Park City year round, but summertime means all the outdoor pools are open for workouts. Check out the offerings at Park City MARC, Silver Mountain, Basin Recreation, and Ecker Hills Aquatics Center.

Bike Here - Sync up with the aforementioned Stay Park City Cycling Club for one of their weekly group road or mountain bike rides. Head to Ritual Chocolate on Sunday at 10 a.m. for a 40–45 mile group ride open to both locals and visitors, divided into three groups by ability level. “A core principle of our club is ‘all-inclusive,’ from weekend warriors to CAT 1 racers and folks just passing through town,” says club president Jason Linder. One of his consistent favorites is this 28-mile loop to Kamas from Park City. “It takes you out of town on wide roads, with no stops, some good climbs, and beautiful views,” he says. If you’re looking to climb your heart out, copy the challenging Suffertational route to ascend some of Park City’s toughest hills.

Run Here - With 400 miles of continuous trails throughout Park City, you won’t run out of options for run training. “The Mid Mountain Trail is a classic trail run [or mountain bike ride], consisting of 20-plus miles of single track hovering around 8,000 feet,” Linder says. For a flat, mostly paved route, the Rail Trail extends for nearly 30 miles from the center of town.

Eat Here - If your ideal recovery snack is avocado toast, you must try Harvest or Five5eeds, two Australian-influenced cafés with colorful breakfast dishes and solid coffee. Get your second caffeine hit of the day of the day at STOKED Roasters at the top of Main Street, owned by accomplished ultra-runner Jax Mariash. After a long training day, treat yourself to burgers and a milkshake at the Montage Deer Valley’s Burgers & Bourbon. (Insider tip: Head to the Montage fire pits around 8 p.m. in the summer months for gourmet s’mores.)

Test Here - Park City has a strong Olympic heritage, as evidenced by the caliber of local athletes and sports facilities in town. The Intermountain Healthcare LiVe Well Center features a state-of-the-art sports performance arm overseen by Dr. Max Testa—a 30-year Tour de France doctor—and offers a slew of testing from Vo2 Max, lactate threshold, gait analysis and much more.

Race Here - Tackle the sprint or Olympic-distance of the Jordanelle Triathlon in August, featuring a clear reservoir swim, mountain-backdrop bike and a run along partial single track through a nature preserve. Test your uphill running prowess at one of the Triple Trail Challenge events—the 16-mile June routes races up to the 10,000-foot Jupiter Peak.

A Fresh Start to Spring

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Mar 27, 2018

We are always looking to share the latest in news regarding our lovely town and the state of Utah. This week inman recently posted The Best US cities for A fresh Start and Salt Lake City makes the top ten. If you’ve ever had to move to another city for a job, you’ll know just how difficult relocating your life can be. But some parts of the country may be better suited for a fresh start — places like Buffalo, New York; Minneapolis; Salt Lake City; and Austin, Texas; are among some of the most receptive, a new study by online lending exchange LendingTree indicates.

To come to these findings, the study’s authors looked at eight elements that would impact a person’s launch in a new city, including the cost of housing, median income and rates of health insurance coverage at 50 of the largest metropolitan areas in the U.S. To calculate a resident’s chances of landing a good job, the study also examined the number of adults between 35 and 64 who are single, enrolled in school and covered by some form of health insurance along with additional factors including employment, median income and school enrollment.

Spring is here and now it is time to start planning your summer activities by adding the Deer Valley concert line-up to your calendar. Now in its 15 year, the festival's six-week summer schedule starts on June 30 with a Patriotic Celebration featuring vocalist Rachel Potter that will include 13 full orchestra concerts at the Snow Park Amphitheater, as well as four chamber concerts at St. Mary's Catholic Church that begins on July 11 with Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 featuring violinist Kathryn Eberle.

Park City Mountain is ready to slide into their 11th annual Spring Grüv, a 16-day event that features live music, family-friendly activities, entertainers and the 22nd edition of the resort's annual pond skimming contest - the fun begins March 24th.

As we work our way through the annual mud season here are 13 Easy Spring Upgrades You Can Do in A Weekend. With thoughts turning to warmer weather this seemed like a good time to round up a few little projects you can do to improve your backyard, or just add a little curb appeal to your home. Projects range from painting your front door and porch steps to organizing the garage and adding a fire pit to your patio area.

Power Markets

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Mar 14, 2018

We are pleased to share that in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Epic Pass, Vail Resorts and Vail's founders from the 10th Mountain Division, the company is honoring epic service of the and men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces (as well as Canadian and Australian military service members) with the introduction of a special new $99 Military Epic Pass, available beginning Tuesday, March 6. It is for both active and retried military, and it is a deal that is simply unbeatable in skiing and ski travel. Additionally, for every pass sold, a $1 donation will be made to Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), a nonprofit organization that offers a variety of programs, services and events for wounded veterans of the military. Click here to read the entire article from Forbes.

Business Insider recently published America's richest people buy homes in 'power markets' — listed in the article are the 17 most expensive and exclusive places and Park City proper comes in at #6. The report defines power markets in the US as places where the top 5% of single-family home sales by price is highest. In the top 17 markets, the median list price for the top 5% of sales is at least $3.5 million. For each city, the median list price for the top 5% of homes currently on the market, the highest sold price from 2017, and the median price per square foot for that market compile the numbers. Park City has a Median list price: $6.97 million, Highest sold price (2017): $11.4 million and the Median price per square foot: $780. But, don't be let theses numbers sway you if you are looking to buy here as the greater Park City area has a variety of condos, homes and land available at a wide range of prices.

Ladders recently shared the states where the economy is strong and opportunities are growing - Looking for a new job? You may want to consider moving to a different state. The U.S. News & World Report’s Best States just released their annual rankings that measures how well states’ economies are performing. They looked at 77 metrics across eight categories, provided by McKinsey & Company’s Leading States Index, including economic status. Data points that fell under the economy growth umbrella include: Job growth, Growth of each state’s GDP between 2013 and 2016, Business environment (monthly birth rate for new businesses), Unemployment rate, Participation in labor force for everyone 16 and older, Number of people moving in and out of a state was taken into account, Tax burden, The number of top company headquarters per capita, Venture capital disbursed, Entrepreneurship (“business birth rate”) and Patent creation. If you are currently on either coast, consider heading towards the middle of the country as Colorado and Utah took the top spots, while Idaho and Texas made it into the Top 10 too.

Dec 20, 2017

There are many wonderful activities in the Park City area and this week we have included Visit Park City's parking update for Old Town Park City to couple with the many events listed below.

Alpine Distilling is an award winning distillery in Park City located at 7132 N. Silver Creek Road. Robert Sergent, Owner and Distiller, is a Bourbon Steward, 4th Generation Distiller and one of 8 Of The Best American Single Malt Whiskies in the country with the only single malt whiskey in the world to win GOLD at the International SIP Awards this year. Their Travelers Rest 88 was so popular it has already sold out with maybe a few bottles remaining at various Utah State Liquor Stores. All of the Alpine products are available at their Silver Creek location, at Utah State Liquor Stores and on-line at www.forwhiskeylovers.com

We have known the Sergent family for years and I remember a Christmas not too long ago at our house where Rob told us he was moving on from his VP role with Johnson & Johnson to create delicious hand crafted spirits. Rob's Preserve Liqueur  was awarded Platinum at the International SIP Awards as the Best Liqueur in the World with a portion of every sale going to the Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter in Park City. Alpine Distilling has also been awarded and recognized internationally as they were invited by the Department of Agriculture to represent the United States in Hong Kong  last year and wouldn't you know it Alpine's Preserve Liqueur made Top 10 out of 20,000 entries!

Here is the Alpine line-up:

Preserve is a 100% corn spirit that is certified Kosher and 20% alcohol by volume.  The Utah state flower, the Sego Lily, is the bottle shape – look at the bottle from the bottom up.

SIP Awards – Platinum Medal 

Wine Luxe – Top Ten; Hong Kong Wine & Spirits Expo

 

Lafayette Spiced Bourbon Whiskey - A classic Kentucky Bourbon mashbill of 75% corn, 21% rye and 4% cut to 80 proof, Alpine adds Apricot, Primrose and Cinnamon for the Lafayette spice profile

SIP Awards: Gold-Medal

 

 

Persistent Vodka - 100% corn which is 10x distilled, using a Column Still and then a Bain Marie Pot Still, to control time on copper.

SIP Awards – Silver Medal

 

 

 

 

Traveler’s Rest American Single Malt Whiskey at Barrel Proof has SOLD OUT.  Gold Medal Winning  Traveler’s Rest Single Malt 88 Proof (with a secondary French Oak aging) is only available at Utah State liquor stores.

 

 

Spur blended whiskey – a blend of two Gold-medal winners - Alpine's French Oak aged single malt has a wonderful banana, mocha note finish with a vanilla spice; and their Bourbon brings the corn sweetness and American Oak brown flavors with very subtle rye spice.

Welcome To Utah

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Sep 20, 2017

Usually our blogs are about Park City, but this week I would like to share a little about Salt Lake City. As one of the nation’s fastest growing areas, Salt Lake City and the surrounding communities are central hubs for business, travel, and recreation. Renowned for “The Greatest Snow on Earth,the Wasatch Front has something for everyone. Bordered on the west by the Great Salt Lake and to the east by the Rocky Mountains, the Salt Lake Valley offers a limitless variety of activities and entertainment.

The city’s surroundings provide a beautiful panorama full of outdoor recreation such as hiking, camping, biking, fishing, boating, rock climbing, world-class skiing and snowboarding, snowshoeing, and so much more. As for the arts, Salt Lake City is home to performance powerhouses such as the Utah Symphony and Ballet West. The Wasatch Front has no shortage of culture, concerts, sporting events, historical attractions, and festivals. With outstanding restaurants and a thriving nightlife, there is always something to do in Salt Lake City and its surrounding areas.

Today, Salt Lake City offers everything from professional sports to concerts and theater to a lively nightlife scene to many kid-approved attractions. Best of all, the city’s backyard offers limitless year-round activities and recreations. Salt Lake City ranks in the top 10 of numerous lists including livability, safety, health, affordability, business, and employment opportunities. Steady, strong economic growth and stability coupled with innovative entrepreneurship has captured the attention of the Silicon Valley tech industry and has predicted Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas to be the next Tech Mecca as “Silicon Slopes” continues to grow and innovate.

Shifting gears back into the mountains, East Summit County is located below the majestic peaks of the Uintas, the mountain communities of Peoa, Kamas, Oakley, Woodland, Francis, Hoytsville, and Coalville boast stunning views and wild natural beauty. Popular with outdoor enthusiasts and ranchers, these townships offer a wide range of real estate options including farmstead estates, large lots to build your dream home on, and small subdivisons with a quiet neighborhood feel. Just a short distance to Park City and Salt Lake City, these towns have a preserved sense of nature and community without the hustle and bustle of a larger city.

From fishing, horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and camping these areas provide a range of outdoor pursuits. In addition to their scenic charm, each town offers its own array of community activities including the Oakley Rodeo, Summit County Fair, outdoor summer concert series, and Kamas’ Fiesta Days. Known as the “Gateway to the Uintas” Kamas, Francis, and Woodland offer pristine mountain living with the Uinta Mountains—and their 880,000 acres of trails, streams, lakes, and mountain terrain—just out your backdoor.

We love Park City, and the Wife and I are here to answer any questions you may have about our local market as well as the surrounding areas of this great state.

Current Market Conditions

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Mar 15, 2017

2270254.largeThis week we wanted to share some great information about the Utah Market provided by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Utah Properties.

WE ARE IN THE BEST STATE FOR BUSINESS

The perennial winner of Forbes' annual Best State for Business award, Utah remains competitively positioned to support continued real estate growth. With an abundance of technology, health care, and creative businesses planting roots in Utah, our state unemployment rate is among the lowest in the country at just 4%. Due to the state's unprecedented economic evolution, real estate sales are likely to remain robust in northern Utah.

 

Utah GrowthJOB GROWTH MEANS HOUSING GROWTH

Utah’s job growth rate is 3 to 4 times higher than the domestic average due to the relocation and expansion of companies who favor a highly-educated work force and economic incentives. In real estate, this continues to produce a steady stream of qualified buyers enticed by Utah’s affordable home pricing and unparalleled lifestyle. With favorable business conditions, the trends of relocation and increased housing demand should continue.

 

Utah PricingPRICES AND DEMAND ARE GRADUALLY RISING

Since 2011, we've seen a 48% increase in median single family home prices. The market has completely recovered from the recession and shows no signs of slowing. While median and average prices continue to climb, courtesy of new development and property renovation, there are still market pockets ideal for entry-level buyers.

 

Utah Days on MarketDEMAND IS AT AN ALL TIME HIGH

With most homes selling within two weeks in Salt Lake County, there's clear evidence of healthy homeowner demand. Historically low inventory has produced a market where buyers outnumber properties. Pre-qualified buyers, who can move quickly into the market, have an advantage. Those guided by Utah Properties experts are alerted to properties as soon as they hit the market.

 

Utah ProjectionsKEY TAKEAWAYS

Overall, the real estate sector looks bullish. Utah's strong economic performance and job growth coupled with moderately rising interest rates have created a climate of urgency. To get a more detailed profile of your local market, reach out.

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

We love Park City and everything that this town has to offer, but we cannot forget that Utah is an amazing state! We have lived her for many years now and cannot imagine living anywhere else. When we are looking for up-to-date events in Park City we go to the Visit Park City website. When we are looking for fun things to do around Utah and especially in the Salt Lake City valley we go to the KSL website.

Exciting news around town - Deer Valley Resort is honored to announce it has garnered the distinction of United States’ Best Ski Resort by the World Ski Award’s for the fourth consecutive year. The World Ski Award’s 2016 Ski Oscars winners represent excellence in ski tourism and the leaders shaping the future of the ski industry.

Looking to explore Park City Mountain - Ski Utah tagged along with blogger Alyssa Staker and her friend Sarah Hall who guided them through some of their favorite spots on the mountain. Follow Alyssa's lead and you're sure to have a great day at Park City Mountain. And if you're not able to tackle the entire mountain in a day, don't sweat it, as the 7,300 acres can be enjoyed over a couple of days or even a week.
