PARK CITY, UT, July 2014 — Park City Lodging, Inc., a leading provider of vacation rental properties located in Park City, Utah, is pleased to renew its partnership alliances for the 2014- 2015 travel season. Park City Lodging, Inc. is committed to creating alliances with sporting and community organizations that align with its mission and values. “These partnerships support several of our core values -- to be socially responsible, to actively participate in key organizations that benefit Park City, and to create great customer value,” stated Rhonda Sideris, President, Park City Lodging, Inc.
Park City Lodging, Inc. is a Corporate Member and an official Destination Partner of the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA), a non-profit association with a mission to create, enhance, educate and preserve great mountain biking experiences. Sideris cites, “Park City is the first and only IMBA Gold Ride Center in the world, so it’s an exciting opportunity to partner with this association in support of IMBA’s Trail Love program.” During summer 2014, participants in the Trail Love program can win a trip to Park City to explore the amazing trails firsthand.
Additionally, Park City Lodging, Inc. is a longtime supporter of Mountain Trails Foundation and has adopted the “Skid Row Fox Trail”. Mountain Trails Foundation is dedicated to promoting and maintaining Park City’s trails for non-motorized recreational use. They create maps and educational resources for the public to enjoy Park City’s extensive trail systems all year long.
Since 2005, Park City Lodging, Inc. has supported the Summit Land Conservancy through the $1 for Open Space program, created to protect local open space, trails, wildlife habitat, farms, ranches and rivers. Park City Lodging, Inc. collects $1 per night booked from lodging guests in support of the Conservancy, and will top $30,000 in donations over 10 years. “While the $1 is a voluntary donation, very few guests decline to donate to this very worthy cause,” says Rhonda Sideris, president of Park City Lodging, Inc. “Everyone recognizes the value of conserving the open space in and around Park City for the benefit of visitors and residents alike.”
For several years, Park City Lodging, Inc. has partnered with the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation (USBSF) as “Preferred Park City Lodging Partner”, a premier sponsorship designation. “What better way to show our support to the athletes than to provide accommodations to support the teams who are training so hard and who are dedicated to bringing home gold-level recognition for the U.S.,” says Rhonda Sideris, president of Park City Lodging, Inc. “We are delighted to provide them with comfortable accommodations as they train and compete in Park City.”
Management and employees at Park City Lodging, Inc. are passionate about contributing to the local community and have continually supported local non-profits by donating to the Park City Community Foundation annual fundraiser, Live PC Give PC, and other non-profits including KPCW, Recycle Utah, and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
