PCMR Fun Facts
- The base of Park City Mountain Resort sits at 6,900 feet and the summit rises to 10,000 feet.
- There are 3,300 acres of terrain spread over eight peaks and nine bowls.
- With our sixteen lifts, we have a total uphill capacity of 31,400 guests per hour.
- Park City Mountain Resort opened on December 21, 1963 as Treasure Mountain. A gondola, Prospector double chair, and two J-bar tows served 18 miles of terrain.
- During the 1996-97 season, snowboarders were first welcome on the mountain and our name changes from Park City Ski Area to Park City Mountain Resort.
- The 2001-02 season brought the grand opening of the Town Bridge and host to all the snowboard events and men's and women's Giant Alpine Slalom events in the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.
- Park City Mountain Resort recognizes that the environment is one of our most valuable assets, which is why we have several initiatives in place to foster responsible stewardship and generate awareness for environmental sustainability. Since 2005 our energy reduction initiatives have reduced our carbon footprint by over 8,800 tons of CO2. In addition, our purchase of alternative energy to offset 100 percent of our power during this time has reduced our carbon footprint by over 22,000 tons. These combined efforts equal a reduction in our carbon footprint by 53 percent since 2005. Avoiding the emission of 30,800 tons of CO2 is equivalent to taking 5,117 cars off the road for one year or saving the electricity use of 3,875 homes annually.
