It's definitely the shortest season here in Park City, however Fall offers up the most colorful season of the year. Autumn colors are appearing on the hillsides, and soon the mountains of Park City will be covered in gold. We highly recommend getting on a trail as soon as you can, if you can catch a day in-between the rain and snow. It will defiantly be worth it. Here are a few of our favorite places to take in the mountains of Park City in all her Fall glory.

While driving through Park City it's impossible not to notice the sights of the Utah Olympic Park with the infamous green ski jumps, which were built and used for the 2002 Winter Olympics.

The Utah Olympic Park is home to six Nordic ski jumps, where Olympians and skiers have practiced and competed ever since. Its crazy enough in its own right to watch athletes go down the jump time and time again, however on Saturday September 30th hundreds of competitors will be climbing up the jump for the Red Bull 400 event. While 400 meters may not seem like much (one lap on a regulation track) for the typical competitor, this race will start at the bottom of the K120 ski jump and continue up, as the competitors make their way towards the top of the jump it will become…

Many moons ago local dedicated mountain bikers would celebrate the end of summer and the upcoming fall season by riding a 7 mile stretch between City Park and Gaurdsmans Pass. In order to make the 2,700 verticle incline race more enticing, said riders would park a keg at the top of their climb. This annual event became the now known Tour De Suds. And to this day, even 38 years later, the event remains very much the same. This laid back and cheerful race attracts both competitive and non-competitive riders of all ages (kids under the age of 17 ride for free).

Finishing times range from forty seven minuets to just over two and a half hours. The only aspect that is consistent in all the riders is the hilarious and often over the top costumes worn by the…

park city's new electric bike share program

Nations first all e-bike share program

Park City now has the bragging rights to the nations first all e-bike share program.  Summit County Councilman Roger Armstrong took his first e-bike ( pedal assisted electric motor) ride last summer and felt that this may be one of solutions needed to get people out of cars and trying alternative means of transportation,” he relates. This summer, thanks in part to a $500,000 grant landed by Summit County staff and the Utah Transit Authority, Armstrong’s alternative transit vision becomes reality with the launch of Utah’s first e-bike share in Park City.  There will be approximately 88 Bewegen e-bikes distributed between nine stations: four at Kimball Junction, one at Canyons Transit Center, and four within

Sothebys July 4th party in Park City Utah

If you have ever spent a July 4th holiday here in Park City, you know the locals take this day of celebration quite seriously. The best bet is to make your way up to Main Street by about 10am, after the pancake breakfast in City Park. Find a spot on Main Street, or meander through the crowd and enjoy the parade and running into many people you know, or meet new friends. As the parade ends, the crowd funnels down to City Park and there you're likely to remain for hours, probably much longer then you'll have intended. There is nothing quite like Independence Day in Park City!

While up on Main Street, be sure to stop by our Sotheby's 625 Main Street office. Doors open at 10AM. We'll have a light breakfast, coffee and refreshing beverages.

A major milestone has been announced for Bonanza Flats. So many in our community have come together to help save 1,350 acres of backcountry access, wildlife, forests & trails along Guardsman Pass.

Park City plans to move forward with purchasing Bonanza Flats. The acquisition, unanimously approved by the Park City Council, would be financed in part by a $25 million bond Park City voters approved in November. Some of the balance would come from donations raised by Utah Open Lands and other conservation groups that have joined forces to help conserve Bonanza Flats.

After so much work, and uncertainty, no longer will this landscape be in plans for a destination ski and golf development. Bonanza Flats is a large area of land that sits behind Park
