IMG_7587In Park City, the mentality is ‘work hard, play hard.’ Here, work-life balance isn’t a goal--it’s a given.

Most Parkites engage in some version of the following scenario: bike up a mountain before heading in for a morning product development meeting, get in a gym session at lunch, wrap-up with some email crunching, and get onto the final fun activity of the day. Far from having just a resort economy, Park City is now home to a diverse business ecosystem that includes powerhouse companies like Skullcandy,, AvaTech, SnoCru, and others.

The ‘Silicon Slopes’ effect is very much underway in Park City, as well as Salt Lake. It's an exciting time to witness startup growth in our mountain town utopia.

To help grow PC's tech scene, the Park City Angels, a venture capital club, has invested in numerous startups that have matured into successful companies. Whether you are an ambitious millennial, seasoned exec, or keen investor, the local business landscape has a niche with your name one it.

Planning your winter vacation to PC? Here are all your options.

Welcome to SLC

Named the one of the strongest performing cities in America by Forbes Magazine, Salt Lake City is a central hub for business, travel, and recreation. This city is one of the only places you can play golf in the morning, work for a cutting edge start up during the day, then go ski touring in the evening. With its out-the-door access to world class ski resorts, wilderness, and national parks, Salt Lake City offers a work-life balance you can't find anywhere else.

In addition to its outdoor lifestyle offerings and thriving economy, the city has a vibrant urban culture that includes performing arts powerhouses like the Utah Symphony and Ballet West, innumerable award-winning restaurants, and an ever-growing art scene. In terms of intellectual stimulation, the University of Utah is renowned for its medical school, MBA program, research facilities and Honor’s Program. The University has fostered more bio-med and tech start-ups than any school in the nation, including MIT.

With the Silicon Valley Slopes effect in full sway, Salt Lake and its surrounding areas are great places to live and buy property. From charming bungalows, mid-century modern homes, and contemporary condos, there are options for every buyer.
