Long before the Olympics first came to town in 2002, Park City was developing as a hotbed for some of skiing great athlete heroes. From the legendary Alf Engen to homegrown Park City Olympic champions like Ted Ligety, Sage Kotsenburg and Joss Christensen, our community has always loved to follow its hometown stars. Today, Olympic champions like Billy Demong and Lindsey Vonn call Park City home, along with recent gold medalist Alex Hall. What is it in the mountains of Park City that has helped these athletes mine so much gold? Historian Tom Kelly will take you back in time to reminisce on great moments in ski and snowboard history emanating from our mountain trails.
