2. Sundance Film Festival
The top film festival domestically, and one of the most recognized around the world. Every January, it brings 50-70K people to Park City along with a slew of A-list actors for the festival and the parties! A Big thank you to Robert Redford, The Legend who started the beautiful madness.
3. Incredible National Parks

4. World-Class Skiing Galore!
With 10 world-class ski resorts within 1 hour of Salt Lake City airport, it's possible to exit your plane in Salt Lake City and be on a chair lift in Park City within 1 hour. Beat that Colorado, Bam. As a bonus, it's less than 4 hours to the infamous Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and the treacherous, steep, and amazing ski terrain. Oh, not to mention Grand Targhee, which is a hop, skip and a jump away from there.

Park City was also the world's first recognized Gold Level Ride Center Destination for Mountain Biking with over 400 miles of Gold Level trails. Basically, an outdoor enthusiast's dream location.

Don't let me sell you on any of this. As a matter of fact, if it were up to the locals, we would rather everyone keep thinking that polygamy still runs rampant throughout the state, and we aren't allowed to drink alcohol at all. As much as we want to keep the secret of how amazing this state is, the fact is, "the secret" is getting out.
Signing off from "The Capital," located in a state where the moto is "Life Elevated." Need I say more? Come see us sometime.....or not ;)
