About Park City, Utah:

Park City is home to about 8,500 residents and temporarily becomes home to about 600,000 tourists during the year. It was once a silver mining town, but in the 1970’s converted to the ski and recreational industries. Two resorts, Deer Valley and Park City Mountain, boast some of the best skiing in the world. The area is also known internationally for its Sundance Film Festival, attended by over 45,000 people each year in January. Of late, the area has become a hotbed for mountain biking enthusiasts. Other nearby areas for residents include Salt Lake City, Utah’s capital and the towns of Kamas, Francis, Oakley. The cost of living in Park City itself tends to be considerably higher than the national average due to housing costs, however, homes within a 15–30-mile commute do come down closer to national averages. Ultimately, the quality of living is very high due to recreational, social, and cultural avenues that proliferate in the areas.
