Mines to Moguls: 50 Years of Park City Skiing

Yellow Gondola #60This December, Park City Mountain Resort turns fifty.  To help celebrate the history of the resort and its impact on Park City’s development as a ski town, the Park City Museum will showcase its newest exhibit, “Mines to Moguls: 50 Years of Park City Skiing this winter season.  The exhibit features a 35-foot timeline detailing the ski area’s evolution into a world-class resort, from its start in 1963 as Treasure Mountains to the glory days of the 2002 Winter Olympics.  Come visit the Park City Museum’s newest exhibit and:

–Help us document how skiing has grown in Park City over the years.  Place a dot on the timeline for the year you starting skiing here, and compare it to other visitors.

–Step inside an authentic yellow gondola from the resort and listen to stories from former passengers.

–If you’re feeling creative, take a seat at our coloring station, where you can decorate a skier or snowboarder cut-out with your favorite ski outfit and add it to the wall of skiers on Park City’s slopes.

We’re excited for the opportunity to share this significant part of Park City’s history with our members and visitors.  Please join us to view the exhibit and celebrate the 50th anniversary of Park City Mountain Resort.
