Outside Magazine's "Best Town Ever"
— Posted by Andy on August 12, 2013
For 50 years, our mountain has been part of one of America's great ski towns. Over time, Park City has become a year-round destination not only for skiers and snowboarders, but hikers, bikers, wine enthusiasts, film buffs, paddleboarders, music lovers, trail runners, art festival goers, foodies, marathoners and even wanna-be cowboys.
Outside gave the article's author just 72 hours to find out if Park City had the chops to hold up to a title like 'Best Town Ever.' That turned out to be plenty of time: from world-class skiing and snowboarding to 370 miles of hiking & biking trails, a blue-ribbon trout stream, amazing restaurants and our own ski in/ski out whiskey distillery (just for starters) - there's plenty to do here winter and summer. Of course you can do all this whether you live here or not, but getting enough time to check everything off your to-do list is another matter.
So how do you become a permanent resident? Outside's author sums it up, now you just have to figure it out: "The real trick to being a Park City local is finding a way to stay."
