Mayflower Mountain Resort rendering

Could Park City actually have two new ski resort villages in the works? Last week, there was much discussion about significant plans for both the Mayflower/Jordanelle side of Deer Valley and the Snow Park base area.

As we have recently reported, the Jordanelle area is booming. And it’s more than just real estate development. Last week, New York City-based developer Extell Development Company announced it will build the first major, full-service ski resort in America since 1980. Located adjacent to Deer Valley Resort on the Jordanelle side, Mayflower Mountain Resort may be operating as soon as the 2021 ski season.

Mayflower Mountain Resort is an ambitious plan to develop 5,600 acres that are just west of U.S. 40 and Jordanelle Reservoir.

SkyRidge on the Jordanelle

Water and mountain views are a rare combination in the high mountain desert of Park City, so it’s no wonder luxury home communities are becoming highly coveted in the Jordanelle Reservoir area. Proximity to Park City coupled with dramatic views of the expansive body of water, Deer Valley ski slopes and Mount Timpanogos make this Wasatch County region a hit among homebuyers. New communities have been popping up in the past decade that appeal to both second homeowners and primary residents. The robust 40-year development plan for the Mayflower side of Deer Valley will establish a top tier ski resort base area to which all of these communities will enjoy easy access.

Victory Ranch cabin exterior

Owning a vacation home can be one of life’s greatest pleasures, especially in a year-round resort paradise like Park City, Utah. It can also require a considerable amount of maintenance and expense, which not everyone has the time or desire to manage. This is precisely why the private residence club concept was created. It’s a form of fractional ownership that rewards owners with the joys of a second home in a luxurious, carefree manner.
