As the snow melts in Park City, Utah so do some luxury home prices. Ski season is coming to an end and now is the perfect time to shop for and buy that resort home you’ve been dreaming about.

Park City is an historic community with so many tasteful modern features. The city and the resort are located on the “Wasatch Back” or on the east side of the Wasatch Mountain Range, a part of the Rocky Mountains. Once a mere mining town, modern civilization has found far more gems here on the pristine mountain slopes than inside them.

Park City, Utah historic downtown at nightIt’s hard to imagine Park City, Utah could get any better than it already is; and yet, the city has unveiled an enhancement plan that will help make Park City home of one of the best recreation destinations on the planet.

The plan is designed to make Park City a more “walkable” community. Its goal is to get residents and visitors to linger longer in the Historic Park City downtown.

The five-year projection identifies Park City’s infrastructure needs and recommends new attractions for the historic district. It offers proven design concepts to make the city more appealing to pedestrians.

Those who call Park City home need not fear the historic character and quality will be going away any time soon. In fact, the warm charm reminiscent of years past is one of the most saleable qualities about this recreation mecca. That quality will be preserved. Park City will encourage economic growth to help complete the stimulating cycle – more visitors and longer visits to the district will encourage more businesses to call Park City home. More businesses will attract more visitors. It’s a win, win proposal.

The plan calls for new attractions, events, and activities. It builds on:

  • snow and ice activities including skating, ice climbing, ice sculpture and snow caves
  • water attractions such as a pop jet fountain and an interactive water sculpture
  • more family-friendly activities with educational play and a historical trail
  • entertainment venues
  • comfortable seating and areas to encourage people to relax and stay awhile in the historic district including picnic tables, shade, and warming stations

Park City Offers Insane Summer Adventure

If you’re an avid skier, snowboarder or even a snow bunny you’re probably looking at the Park City slopes with longing. That snow can’t stay up there forever. Summer is going to come with all its sun and green and – well – no snow. Never fear, you’ll be thrilled to find Park City home to some of the coolest summer activities on the planet.

Thinking of buying a Park City vacation home? Plan to spend time playing there all year. Your winter wonderland is about to become a mecca of nature and manmade summer adventure.

My hope here is to put that sense of impending doom to rest. The snow will come again; but, in the meantime get ready to rock. (No, seriously, rock climbing is one of the popular summer activities here.)

Adventure Awaits

I have two words for you: Alpine Coaster. It’s one of the longest Alpine Slides in the country and it offers insane adventure. Don’t worry about screaming like a little girl (even if you’re not a little girl), it’s a common phenomenon here. This is how Park City Resort describes the experience:

“Enjoy a relaxing ascent uphill, taking in the mountain scenery, before whizzing down the mile long track of loops, curves and hair-pin curves.”

Or, maybe you’d rather fly through the air than speed down the mountain on the seat of your pants? Try the ZipRider™.  Fly over the tree tops while being propelled 110 feet above Park City Mountain Resort’s ski runs at speeds up to 45 miles per hour.

Utah’s Wasatch Back features some of the most spectacular scenery you’ll ever see. Catch a lift to check out hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails.

Look, I’ll make it easy on you. Make Park City home and you purchase a crazy, wonderful, beautiful, relaxing, energizing lifestyle. Are you up to it?
