Park City Mountain Resort Opened Friday 17th November

Park City, Utah (November 15, 2006) – Park City Mountain Resort, ranked a top-five resort in North America for a second year by the readers of SKI Magazine, kicks off the 2006-07 winter season on Friday, November 17, the scheduled opening day.

“There’s an electric feeling around the Resort in anticipation of opening day,” said Peter Curtis, president and general manager of Park City Mountain Resort. “Our team has been working really hard and we are very excited to be the first resort in Park City to open.”

Park City Mountain Resort will open Payday Lift, which allows skiing and riding on nearly two miles of terrain on Homerun. The Resort also plans to open First Time Lift to service Turtle Trail to provide learning terrain for beginners. Additional lifts and terrain will open as conditions permit. The lifts will run from 9 am to 4 pm. In addition, there will be six features set up on Upper and Lower Homerun for skiers and riders to practice their terrain park skills.

The Resort will have three on-mountain restaurants open including Legends Bar & Grill, Kristi’s and the Legacy Café. Legacy Sports and Park City Mountain Rentals will also be open.

Park City Mountain Resort kicks-off its exclusive Kid’s Signature 5 Program, the only ski and snowboard school that guarantees five children or less in each class for ages 6-14, even during the Resort’s busiest times. The program offers unparalleled personal attention, a choice of lunches in one of the on-mountain restaurants, and increased self-confidence on the slopes. This year Park City Mountain Resort also introduces its Personal Mountain Planner, an online program that assists skiers and snowboarders in making the most of the mountain with a tailor-made layout of an entire day of winter fun. The downloadable file can be printed and taken with them or emailed to a friend.

Park City Mountain Resort encompasses 3,300 acres, 3,100 vertical feet, nine bowls and eight peaks offering Signature groomed runs, bumps, powder, trees, terrain parks and the Eagle Superpipe, one of North America’s largest superpipes. The Resort has received numerous accolades, most recently being named a top-five ski Resort by the readers of SKI Magazine for a second year and “Terrain Park of the Year” for the third year in a row by the readers of Transworld Snowboarding. The Resort is conveniently located 36 miles from the Salt Lake International Airport, offering more than 800 in-bound flights daily.
