Park City Mountain 2019-20 Winter News and Story Ideas

NEW: Tombstone BBQ
Serving mouthwatering house-smoked meats, homemade sauces and ice cold beer, Tombstone BBQ has long been a favorite dining tradition on Park City Mountain. That tradition gets a whole new chapter for the 2019-20 season, with the addition of a permanent restaurant on the site of the old food truck and BBQ shed. The signature space includes heated indoor seating for up to 50 guests, ample indoor restrooms, a draft beer bar, a wood-fired BBQ pit and a full kitchen serving up all the Tombstone classics. Outdoor picnic tables will continue to offer guests a relaxed, al fresco dining experience with stunning views of the surrounding mountains, while the new indoor structure will provide a cozy escape from the elements on chilly days. In pursuit of Vail Resort’s commitment to zero, disposable plates and cups will also be replaced with environmentally-friendly reusable service ware. Guests looking for a relaxed and fun atmosphere, great music and killer BBQ will find it on the mountain at Tombstone BBQ.
NEW: Over and Out Lift
Park City Mountain will install a new lift in time for the 2019-20 season. The fixed grip quad chairlift, named “Over and Out,” will transport guests from a location near the bottom of the Tombstone Express Lift and unload near the top of Sunrise Lift on the front side of the mountain. As the name suggests, this lift will provide a quicker, more direct route for skiers and riders to access Canyons Village from the center of the resort.
NEW: First Time Park
Park City Mountain is transforming the beginner skier experience at the Park City Mountain Village with the new First Time Park. Similar to High Meadow Park, First Time Park will offer skiers and snowboarders a dedicated learning area in the Park City Mountain Village. The area will feature enclosed surface conveyors and beginner terrain for Ski & Snowboard School participants as well as convenient access to the First Time Lift for easy progression.
High Meadow Park Beginner Learning Area
Park City Mountain is one of the best places in the country to learn how to ski or snowboard and the new High Meadow Park is the perfect spot for kids and families to start their learning experience. High Meadow Park is conveniently located mid-way up the mountain near the top of the Red Pine Gondola and offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Designed exclusively for beginner skiers and snowboarders, High Meadow Park offers guests a dedicated learning area with a wide-open, gently-graded slope and three new adventure trails for easy progression. Additionally, the new High Meadow Express Lift offers a short, three-minute ride up the hill which means more time to enjoy on the slopes. High Meadow Park is open to all guests of Park City Mountain, not just ski school participants, and guests will discover locally-made wood carvings of native animals hidden throughout the area.
Transformed Mid-Mountain Lodge
Park City Mountain’s iconic Mid-Mountain Lodge has undergone an extensive transformation that pays tribute to the building’s historic roots. Housed in a recently renovated 19th Century boarding house, Mid-Mountain Lodge offers diners a fresh take on alpine dining and now features one of Utah’s only on-mountain, full-service, ski-in-ski-out cocktail bars: The Public House. The newly transformed Mid-Mountain Lodge is the perfect on-mountain gathering place to connect with family and friends and offers a signature experience that rivals the dining options on Main Street, Park City. A thoughtful menu features flame broiled rotisserie meats, hearty grain bowls, comforting soups and over-the-top signature sandwiches. Add in a cozy deck framed with stunning views of the Uinta range, Mid-Mountain Lodge is redefining what it means to eat on the mountain. 
Epic For Everyone
Announced earlier this year as a part of Epic for Everyone, the Epic Day Pass provides unprecedented flexibility and season pass discounts to guests skiing as little as one day. With the customizable pass, guests can unlock discounts of up to 50 percent off lift ticket window prices by selecting the number of days they plan to ski or ride – from one day to seven days – and whether or not to add holiday access.
Park City Mountain has the most expansive snowmaking system in Utah which ensures world-class skiing conditions all season long, regardless of natural snowfall. There is a science and strategy behind snowmaking and with decades of experience, Park City Mountain’s expert snowmaking team is able to create a snow surface of the highest quality. The resort continues to invest in snowmaking technology with recent improvements at High Meadow Park, Iron Mountain and Red Pine Road.
