History of Park City, Utah

In 1870, the discovery of lead, gold and silver in the Park City area, led to the establishment of a mining community. The area soon experienced a population boom. More than $400 million of sliver ore was mined from the Treasure Mountain. However, the city virtually became a ghost town, when the mines penetrated the water tables and were flooded. Finally in 1963, Treasure Mountain opened its slopes for skiing and snowboarding. In order to reach the top of the slopes, skiers were transported by the Spiro Tunnel mine train into the mountain, and then lifted on a mine hoist elevator 1800 feet to the top of the slopes. It wasn't until the 1970s when skiing in Park City became very popular. Park City soon became home to three world class ski resorts: Park City Mountain Resort, Deer Valley Resort, and The Canyons Resort. The 2002 Winter Olympics ski and snowboarding events were held at two of the city's resorts.
