Park City Mountain Resort today announced the Summit Land Conservancy as the benefactor of the proceeds from the ninth annual Park City Mountain Resort Benefit Days. A limited number of specially priced $25 lift tickets will go on sale beginning Wednesday, October 26 and will be valid from Opening Day to December 16. Additionally, the Resort will sell extra tickets to raise money for its newly created Park City Mountain Resort Legacy Fund, which will be used to continue the Resort’s support of local non-profit organizations and will be managed by the Park City Foundation.
“Benefit Day was established to give back to this community and has become a pillar for the not-for-profit community, raising more than $400,000 since 2003,” said Jenni Smith, president and general manager of Park City Mountain Resort. “With so many deserving not-for-profit organizations in town it is becoming exceedingly more difficult to select recipients for the Benefit Days, which is one of the reasons we are creating the Legacy fund. The Summit Land Conservancy was selected because of the things they are doing to preserve and protect, as well as educate on, the natural and agricultural resources of our community.”
The Summit Land Conservancy works with landowners to permanently protect the agricultural lands, view-sheds, animal habitats, waterways and rangelands of Summit County, Utah.
“The Summit Land Conservancy is honored to be the nonprofit recipient of PCMR’s Benefit Days this year,” said Cheryl Fox, Executive Director of the Summit Land Conservancy. “Every ticket sold will help protect local open spaces and benefit the entire Park City community through the new Park City Mountain Resort Legacy Fund.”
Specially priced tickets for Park City Mountain Resort’s Benefit Days can be purchased beginning October 26 for $25 at Park City Mountain Resort’s Resort Services Office; Jans, Cole Sports and Zions Bank locations in Park City and Sports Den in Salt Lake City. Tickets must be purchased in-person, are limited to a maximum of four per person and will be valid from Opening Day through December 16.
