Park City | Skiing Destination
After 19th century silver boon, the town fell on hard times. Mining accidents, tapped out veins and a drop in silver prices pretty much wiped out the silver industry. By the fifties, Park City was all but a ghost town. But the introduction in 1963 of the Treasure Island ski area changed everything. Now the valley houses three major resorts: Park City Mountain, Deer Valley, and The Canyons. And in 2002, when Salt Lake City hosted the Winter Olympics, Park City’s ski areas saw plenty of Olympic action.
