Jarom Bangerter serves people across the Wasatch Mountain range, including residents of Park City. A small city located in Summit County, Park City is a favorite tourist destination; even Utah residents love to go there for a mini-vacation.
Park City is well known among many for its various tourist attractions. It draws people from all over the world every January to attend the Sundance Film Festival, the world’s largest independent film festival. It is also the home of the Utah Olympic Park with amenities like the 2002 winter Olympics bobsled ride, ziplining, an alpine slide, and other Olympic training activities. There are also two main resorts, the Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley Resort, both of which are world-class skiing locations. People can hit the slopes and enjoy the “greatest snow on earth,” whether they’re a skier or a snowboarder. Historic Main Street features many restaurants, outlet shopping, and art galleries. When ski season is out of session, you can still enjoy outdoor recreation activities like hitting the mountain biking trails or going horseback riding.
