Park City History

Park City is Born

In 1868 Army soldiers discovered rich silver veins in the hills above that would become Park City. George Snyder a Mormon polygamist, built a boarding house with is third wife Rhoda near where the present town lift is located in downtown Park City. On the Fourth of July, 1872 the early miners raised Rhoda’s hand sewn American Flag over the Snyder’s log house. George declared “We shall call this place Parley’s Park City” Very soon after the Parley was dropped and the new booming mining town had its name.

The First Skiers

As early as the 1880’s for transportation the miners used what they called “longboard snowshoes” back and forth from the mines. In the 1920’s skiing was becoming a recreational sport. Scandinavian miners build a jump on the Creole Mine dump, (now the Creole ski run to the Town lift). They would hold jumping tournaments. The young adults of Park City created the Park City Ski Club which would guide kids and adults on sk tours on what would be come Park City Mountain Resort. In 1923 the Park City Record newspaper would predict that skiing would make Park City a winter sports mecca

Park City Opens

In 1963 Park City (originally named Treasure Mountain) would open with help from a federal loan meant for economically depressed rural towns. The $1.2 million from the loan would help bring a gondola, base and summit lodges, a chairlift and a J-bar plus a 9 Hole golf course.

The World in Park City

In March 1985 Park City would hold its first World Cup ski race, in 2002 the Olympic Winter Games came to Park City. Since 1981 the Sundance Film Festival has been in Park City. Bringing many people from around the world to Park City.
