Long before Park City, Utah 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. Founded by prospectors in the late 1860’s, Park City continued to produce silver until the early 1970’s. The mining company, Park City Consolidated Mines, started the ski business in 1963, when they built the first lifts on what was then called Treasure Mountain. The Park City area now has three world class resorts: the Canyons Resort, Deer Valley Resort, and Park City Mountain Resort, and is home to the world renowned Sundance Film Festival. In 2002, Park City hosted multiple events for the XIX Winter Olympic Games, and the Utah Olympic Park is a great tourist attraction that continues to operate and hold world cup events throughout the year.
