Park City | Festival Town
In 1868, stray soldiers looking for silver deposits in the Wasatch mountains outside Salt Lake City found a gentle valley at the edge of the mountains. Their camp eventually became Park City, a rough and tumble mining town. In the 20th century, silver gave way to skiing both for the locals and the area’s many out-of-state guests. And since the 1980s, the town’s biggest currency every January has been new cinematic talent rather than silver ore.
