Who Doesn’t Like to save money on their Park City Ski Trip?

In the days of the airlines charging hundreds of dollars for bags, airfares skyrocketing, and lift ticket prices rising every year, I would like to offer a few tips preparing for a ski trip to Park City.

1.Skis and Boots:

Hauling your own can cost you hundreds in fees with the airlines, and rentals are not much less expensive. If you have a pair of boots you love, I say bring them because they are yours, and you are not “walking in someone else’s boots”, Yes, I do crack myself up sometimes. :) If you have your own boots and are a Phil Mahre or Picabo Street wannabe, all of the park city rental stores rent performance skis by the day. So you can try a different pair every day if you wish,

An article in the Park Record covered the uptick in significant investment by the private sector on multiple properties on Main Street. For many years, there were virtually no projects occurring on Main Street, but now, there are more simultaneous projects than have been seen in decades.

Not only Main Street is seeing commercial investment, but Raleigh Movie Studios recently broke ground at Quinn’s Junction, the Tech Center at Kimball Junction, a new hotel planned in Sun Peak, and many more.

Probably the most exciting project on Main Street Park City is the reconstruction of the mall. Long seen as an eyesore that did not fit the Old Town

Five guys burger park cityThe latest commercial expansion in the Park City area in Kimball Junction is about complete, and almost fully leased up!  New restaurants will be opening soon with Five Guys Burgers, Zupas, Jimmy Johns,  Freebirds World Burritos and more. While Park City is very selective about where they will allow commercial developments, it is a great opportunity for Parkites and visitors to have additional choices for services and eating options. I really like this expansion because it is just infill in an established commercial area of Greater Park City. It really fits within our “anti-sprawl” attitude towards development.

While it is great to have Salt Lake City just a few minutes down highway 80, it is also very convenient to be able do eat , shop and live in

Park City Utah, in the fallWonderful News! I took a look Luxury Real Estate Sales in the past 90 days, specifically properties listed at $4 Million and Up. In the past few years, you might see one a month sell, but in the past 90 days, we have seen 17 sales, and another 4 under contract! What I really find interesting is 4 of the homes are NOT ski access property, but in off-resort neighborhoods. There is a new buyer profile coming to Park City that wants to enjoy the Park City lifestyle, but not be high up on a mountain. This was reflected in the highest price sale was a 6 bed 9 bath estate for $12,450,000. This was a spectacular home in Two Creeks off Old Ranch Road, which is NOT ski in ski out!

Savvy buyers are recognizing the values offered in the Park City Luxury Market,
