Park City is a well-known mountain resort town that hosted most of the skiing and snowboarding venues for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. Park City began as a mining town in the late 1860s; silver was actively mined here up until the early 1970s. Skiing came to Park City in 1963 when Park City Consolidated Mines built the first ski lifts on Treasure Mountain. The population of Park City is about 8,000, a number that is almost always greatly exceeded by the number of tourists in this town.
The economy of Park City is strong, with the majority of its economic stability coming from the tourism industry. Park City government officials are hard at work to create a diversified tourist trade that isn't solely focused on skiing. Officials want to draw tourists year round by marketing the city as a second home and golf community. Currently, 53 percent of the area's employment is credited to the travel and recreation industries. Other large employers in the area are the University of Utah Medical Center, the Heber Valley Medical Center, the Park City Library and the Summit County Library.
Some of the city's prominent neighborhoods are:
Park City has several shopping opportunities that include specialty boutiques, traditional malls and several outlet stores. The city is known for having more outlet stores than any other northern Utah location.
