Park City, Utah (May 22, 2012) – Park City Mountain Resort kicks off the summer season Friday, May 25, just in time for Memorial Day weekend, with a variety of adventures for guests of virtually any age.

The Resort’s full complement of summer rides, mountain activities and dining options returns for summer 2012. Experience the banks and drops of Utah’s only alpine coaster, cruise one of the world’s longest alpine slides and soar through the trees on the ZipRider. Opening for its first full summer of operation in 2012, the Flying Eagle Zip Line allows guests not yet big enough for the ZipRider to also take to the skies and enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Resort base area.

Younger guests can explore the spider slide, climbing web, boulders and climbing wall in the Adventure Zone, and catch big air while safely harnessed on the Legacy Launcher trampolines. Little Miners Park’s merry-go-round, airplane ride and mini train cater to the resort’s youngest guests.   

Legends Bar and Grill, located at Legacy Lodge, offers a full menu of lunch and dinner options, and Crescent Burger serves up made-to-order burgers, hand cut fries and homemade shakes just steps from the Resort’s base attractions.

Beginning Friday, PayDay Lift and the Resort Base Area will be open Sunday-Friday, 1-6 pm and Saturdays, 11 am-6 pm during the summer’s Early Season, before expanding to Regular Season hours June 8. Also June 8, Town lift, providing guests mountain access directly from historic Main Street, begins operation.

Town lift runs until October 7, while PayDay lift and the Resort’s base area summer attractions remain open until October 21. A complete schedule for the summer season can be viewed here:
