SILVER MINING MEETS THE SLOPES

February 7, 2017 by Visit Park City

While today Park City, Utah is known as a top-rated winter destination, its history runs deep in silver mining.  Park City was incorporated in 1884 after the area was discovered to be rich in silver. The town flourished as people flocked to the area from all over the world in hopes of striking it rich. In the 1930s, skiing began to draw interest after a ski jump was built atop the Creole Mine dump. As the mining industry started to crumble, skiing in Park City continued to gain popularity when a ski lift was installed at Snow Park (now Deer Valley Resort) in 1946. and then again in the mid-60s with the opening of Treasure Mountain (now Park City Mountain Resort). Although silver mining in Park City disappeared for good by the 1980s when the price of silver declined drastically, the ski industry continued to grow.

Located just above Park City Mountain Resort’s Canyons Village, Doc’s Run overlooks the village area and Swaner Preserve and Ecocenter’s open space. On a bluebird day, you can even see as far as the Uinta Mountain Range.  Doc’s Run offers a steady pitch, allowing you to coast into Canyons Village with ease.  It’s a great way to finish up a day on the mountain, as it is accessible via the Orange Bubble Express lift mid-station, which drops you off right next to Lookout Cabin where the fondue and views from the deck will knock your socks off.
