May 24, 2011

Park City, Utah (May 25, 2011) – Park City Mountain Resort kicks off its popular summer season on Friday, May 27. Guests can experience a variety of adventures including the Alpine Slides, Alpine Coaster, ZipRider and lift-served hiking and biking. In addition, the Resort Base Area offers activities for all ages including a climbing wall, miniature golf, Legacy Launcher trampoline and Little Miners Park. Resort access to and from Historic Main Street via the Town Lift begins Friday, June 10.

“Our summer operations crew has done an exceptional job preparing the Resort for opening day,” said Tom Pettigrew, director of summer operations at Park City Mountain Resort. “There’s no better way to beat the summer heat than spending the day in the mountains with the family riding the Alpine Slide, Alpine Coaster, one of our zip lines or simply enjoying the activities in the Base Area.”

In addition to the activities, Park City Mountain Resort’s summertime food and beverage options include lunch, dinner and cocktails at Legends Bar & Grill; coffee and pastries at Kristi’s Coffee Café; the Dippin Dots and Snowie stands; and new for summer 2011, Crescent Burger, serving burgers and homemade shakes and fries, for both lunch and dinner.

This summer Park City Mountain Resort will introduce two new adventures. The Flying Eagle Zip Line allows two riders (42” or taller) to ride side-by-side as the 750-foot line pulls them up to the top for a thrilling ride back to the Base Area. And in the new Adventure Zone, kids 36 to 54 inches tall can explore a variety of adventure-oriented activities including a bouldering area, climbing wall, spider-web climbing area and more. These new adventures are slated to open later this summer.
