Learn more about Park City Utah
Long before Park City became a world class mountain resort and venue for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, it was famous as a silver mining town and boasts a lively and colorful past. Park City was discovered in 1868 when soldiers stationed in Salt Lake City traversed the mountain from Big Cottonwood Canyon to find silver. The completion of the Transcontinental Railroad in 1870 brought hopeful miners by the droves to Utah with their eyes set on becoming rich overnight. The discovery of exceedingly rich silver ore brought George Hearst, the father of William Randolph Hearst, to Park City. His Ontario Mine, purchased for $30,000, produced over $50 million in its lifetime.
By 1930, the idea of skiing had begun to catch on with the installment of a ski jump built on the Creole mine dump. Downhill skiers are few and skiing is mostly a spectator sport. But interest in the trend of winter recreation continued to peak throughout the next few decades, and by 1946 the first lift is installed at Snow Park (now Deer Valley). At the same time, mining prices continue to drop and by 1949 many mines had shut down, putting 1,200 miners out of work.
