In December 2013, Park City Mountain Resort turned 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 showcased its newest exhibit, “Mines to Moguls: 50 Years of Park City Skiing. The exhibit featured 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. Visitors to the Park City Museum’s newest exhibit:
–Helped us document how skiing has grown in Park City over the years by placing a dot on the timeline for the year they starting skiing here.
–Stepped inside an authentic yellow gondola from the resort and listened to stories from former passengers.
–Took a seat at our coloring station to decorate a skier or snowboarder cut-out with their favorite ski outfit and added it to the wall of skiers on Park City’s slopes.
We were excited for the opportunity to share this significant part of Park City’s history with our members and visitors. Thank you for celebrating the 50th anniversary of Park City Mountain Resort with us!
