Park City is not only a city from movies, but also a hero in print. In 2008, it was named by Forbes Traveler Magazine among the 20 ''prettiest towns'' in America. Since then it has captured the attention of tourists to its top ski opportunities and exclusive adventures. Add to this alpine scenery with picturesque mountains excellent for hiking and biking and you have a vacation off the beaten track.
Windsurfing and waterskiing in winter, while in summer the best is a rest at the shore of alpine lakes, rivers, and canoe. Generally, Park City is not a place to meet low season demand being active year round regardless of weather. Its weather changes so rapidly that snow stops falling in April and a month after the temperatures reach 20degC.
Locals joke about this that if you don't like spring weather in Park City, wait a minute and it will change soon. People who live in the town of 7,371 residents know the weather extremes of hot and cold with temperatures reaching 26degC in summer and -14 degC in winter.
This is mainly shaped by steep mountains that Park City climbs, from the southern end of Snyderville Basin covering the area of 9.4sqmiles. This mountain shapes more than city's backdrop, but it has rich silver veins above what was founded Park City about 135 years ago.
George Snyder, a Mormon polygamist, built a boarding house to profit from the silver mining trade and in 1872, early miners relocated to a new mining boom town. It was first that George Snyder declared "We shall call this place Park City".
Today this is more than a city thriving on mining industry, as became a major tourist destination because of its finest attractions.
