Before Park City was a premier ski town with a thriving economy and a bustling downtown; Park City was merely a mining boom town, complete with 27 bars and a red light district. The houses were little more than shacks lining Daly Canyon at the top of modern day Main Street. Many miners began their days before the sun rose and ended them long after the sun had set. It was a close-knit community consisting of the strong willed and tough. At the height of Park City’s mining days, it was said that Park City was the greatest silver camp in the world.
Alas, all booms eventually bust and the end of an era came with the closure of the Ontario Silver Mine. It’s easy to imagine the difficult transition in Park City during this time, with many fighting tooth and nail to hold on to what they knew. With the fall of the mining boom, town was quickly transitioning to a ghost town. Change was needed and the arrival of the first ski lift in 1946 began the journey that Park City finds itself on today.
With such a rich history beneath present day Park City, Miners’ Day has become an important nod to our mining heritage. Each year on Labor Day, the Miners Day celebrations sweep Park City, offering fun for all ages (especially if you know nothing about mining!). The signature event of the day, the Mucking & Drilling Competition, is sure to be one of the most unique experiences in any ski town. People gather from all around the mountain west to compete in events that simulate the demands of silver mines.
Start the day with a pancake breakfast in the park and the Miners’ Day 5K, a fundraiser for local non-profits, funky costumes encouraged! Prior to the parade on Main Street at 11:00 a.m. the infamous Running of the Balls event takes place. Vying participants purchase tennis balls and release them on Main Street in a mad race to the bottom where winners win valuable prizes such as ski passes. Finish the day with live music in the park, Bar-B-Que lunch, and a skateboard bowl jam.
We invite everyone to come out, celebrate and enjoy Park City’s vibrant history on September 4th all over the downtown Park City area. For a complete list of events and times please visit the Miners’ Day website. Official site: http://parkcityminersday.org/

When Bing Crosby sauntered out the lyrics “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas,” he perfectly described Park City, Utah during the holiday season. With copious amounts of Utah’s famous “champagne powder” and a Main Street that boasts something for everyone, Park City is the perfect winter escape for the whole family. Here are the top reasons to book a holiday vacation in Park City this winter.
What do you get when you combine the largest ski resort in the United States and the best ski resort in the United States? Park City, of course. When Park City and Canyons merged to become the largest ski resort in the United States, the resort added $50 million of improvements to create an unparalleled ski experience. Track fresh powder from one end to the other over 7,300 acres. Deer Valley Resort, located a mere 39 miles from Salt Lake City International Airport, was honored as the United States’ Best Ski Resort by the World Ski Award’s 2015 Ski Oscars. Discover first-class service over 21 chair lifts, 101 ski runs, and six bowls. With the option of not one, but two amazing ski resorts, your family will have the holiday vacation of a lifetime.
Last season, Park City received many of its legendary foot plus dumps of snow during the month of December. In fact, holiday visitors experienced two seventeen inch storms back to back. That’s almost 35 inches of snow in two days. Does skiing 159 inches of powder in December sound great to you? Come visit us in Park City.
Holiday roasts and eggnog, oh my! As much as we love all of the delicious holiday delicacies, you have to admit it’s a great way to pack on the pounds. Did you know that a typical day’s skiing can burn up to 3,000 calories… far more than a session at the gym? Go ahead and help yourself to seconds (or thirds.) Also, you can’t après ski until you ski. That High West Distillery hot toddy won’t drink itself. Check back soon for our favorite après spots in Park City.
What good is a family holiday vacation if everyone isn’t entertained? Park City is more than its two world-class ski resorts. Main Street offers more chefs per capita than Paris and endless adventures for the non-skier. Live out your dream of bobsledding at Utah’s Olympic Park, the official site of the 2002 Winter Olympics. Experience nightlife like never before at one of the dozen pubs, clubs or live music venues on Main Street. Staying on Main Street not your style? Park City’s free town-wide shuttle will take you from Canyons Village to Deer Valley Resort and everything in between.
