Park City is known for great snow, picturesque mountains, and North America’s largest ski resort; but did you know that there are seventeen golf courses within thirty-two minutes of Old Town? Check out our Golf Community Market Report to see both Single Family Homes and Vacant Land available/sold at many of our fine golf communities in the Park City area. (Promontory Pictured Above)

Seven of these courses are private clubs located within five private gated communities, Glenwild, Promontory, Tuhaye, Red Ledges, Victory Ranch (Promontory and Red Ledges each have two golf courses). There are two other fine private courses located in Park City…Park Meadows and Jeremy Ranch.

(Red Ledges Pictured Above)

Our eight public golf courses are extremely well maintained and a joy to play all with the bonus of very reasonable green fees. I have personally played all but three of them and I am here to tell you that golfing in Park City area is like Heaven on Earth. Park City provides mild temperatures, well maintained greens and fabulous mountain views from every golf course.

(Tuhaye Pictured Above)

As I have managed private clubs for over 15 years, in several fine resort locations, it is my professional and personal opinion that you will not find a better golfing experience anywhere. Whether you wish to join an exclusive private club or play one our fine public courses, you will not be disappointed.

Park City Adventures

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Mar 11, 2016

I realize that I have been on a kick lately about how great Park City is, and well only because it is and that is why I have decided to do a double blog this week.  I came across this article by Fodor's  Travel and  "If anyone has seen it all, it’s the crew over at Fodor’s Travel with all their pretty (and pretty practical) guidebooks. So when they say their top pick for 2016 travel is our pride and joy, Utah, we, of course, couldn’t agree more. What does Fodor’s think is so great about this state anyway?" well Park City takes the top two spots and spot number 8. Another great read is  17 Reasons Utah is the #1 Place to Visit in the World which includes some of my favorite things to do in Utah.

I had a great opportunity earlier this week to go snowmobiling for the first time, and I realized I found a new sport. I went out with some friends and colleagues in the field out to Wolf Creek Ranch. If you are looking for some great parcels of land with lots of property I would be more than happy to take you out to see this amazing community.

 

Since it has been such a beautiful week I also decided to take my granddaughter out for a few runs at the Canyons Village yesterday as she has a little brother coming soon and I thought we would get in one more day of skiing before Junior gets here.

IMG_5127 (1)

As Spring is just around the corner and road trips are on our minds, check out this article 12 Must-Do Adventures On Your Utah Road Trip. The wife and I have explored Utah and the West for years via our motorcycle and now we spend more time in the 5th wheel RV seeking adventures in our truck with our trusty dog Zorro. Before our road trips begin we are going to make the most of the snow and we hope to see you on the slopes this weekend.

Skiing In Park City With Kids

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Mar 02, 2016

IMG_0071

Some of my favorite experiences in Park City are with my granddaughter on the ski slopes of Park City Mountain Resort. Ana and I head out on the weekends with a snow board in one hand and a set of skis in the other. Over the years she has gotten better, more confident and faster, but her favorite runs are still the  greens. In a town of Olympic medalists, novices, and every level of skiing/snowboarding in between it is good to know that we can all have a great time together.

Lonely Planet just posted a great article - 7  Reasons to Learn to Ski in Park City and it begins with the phrase "within northern Utah’s snow-laden mountain ranges lies Park City, one of the country’s most beginner-friendly ski towns". This is great news for kids and adults alike as 12% of the trails at Park City Mountain are designated green for beginner skiers, and 27% of the trails at Deer Valley are beginner friendly. Both Park City Mountain and Deer Valley offer ski programs for all levels, but the kids programs and their attention to detail and fun are absolutely amazing. Plus, if you are a local there are discounted rates for your kiddos ski programs and if your kids are in the Park City school district there are ski programs offered via the public schools.

When you are not skiing this weekend, Park City is hosting the NorAm Cup on March 4th and 5th, check out the men's and women's skeleton at the Utah Olympic Park starting at 10 am on both days. The competition will host athletes from around the world with both up and coming to the very experienced as athletes work to start building points for the 2018 Olympics. The Utah Olympic Park is a great place to take kids as they have an interactive museum, year round activities and numerous events just for kids.

Park City is full of activities for the whole family and as Forbes Travel Guide's 16 Top Destinations For 2016 listed our lovely little town at the top of the list you know we are never short of things to do. Check out our website for more ideas on things to do in Park City and of course all things real estate.

My granddaughter wanted me to thank everyone who bought Girl Scout cookies from her this year. The wife and I like to help with the cookie drive each year and we were tickled to see  Fortune's post that Chris Rock was able to get celebrities at the Oscars to purchase $65,000 worth of cookies for his daughter during the awards ceremony. On that note, be ready for next year when Ana and I set it up a notch in our new and improved grandfather/granddaughter sales pitch.

Curling 2-16 Ramon & Saras Teams-5

On my way home from curling the other night, I thought this week we would share some information on the Park City Resort developments in the Canyons Village. Our website provides access to all the residences on the market in the greater Park City area and there are multiple ways to browse. Fortune recently named Berkshire Hathaway 4th on the World's Most Admired Companies for 2016, so we will focus on some of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Utah Properties partnered developments.

Yes, my first sentence was about curling - I have curled for a number of years and our team has done very well in the Park City Curling Club. We curl Monday nights from 8 pm to 10:30 pm in a Fall and Winter season. This past Monday was a great evening as my wife came out to take pictures of the league in action and our team played my Licensed Assistant's team. Alright, back to the developments in the Canyons Village area...

APEX RESIDENCES PARK CITY Apex Residences Park City is the newest offering at Canyons Village Park City. Located at the top of the Village, all owners can ski to, through, and from their homes, and connect easily to the Village energy.  Apex consists of 63 residences, with options of 3, 4, and 5 bedroom floor plans spanning 2000-3800 square feet, and all with private ski rooms.

A Perfect Day in Park City

Park City is an amazing place, whether you are just in for the day or you live here full-time there are endless things to do. Melanie Lieberman of Travel and Leisure Magazine published 12 Perfect Hours in Park City, Utah  and this gave us an idea for our own version of a perfect Park City day...

A perfect day in Park City could start by checking out some of the local real estate with our team; our website allows you access to preview all the properties on the market in the Park City area. Next, enjoy an outdoor activity like skiing, hiking, snow shoeing, sledding, touring our Olympic Park for a luge or bobsled experience or walking on Main Street - the possibilities are endless. When it is time for lunch check out Silver Star Cafe, it was just named Park City's Best-kept Dining Secret by USA TODAY. If you are downtown and looking for a good bar, No Name Saloon and High West Distillery  were both recently listed in the Top 5 of the 10 Best Apres-ski Bar Winners As Chosen by the Readers of USA Today for 2016.

Another place to visit during your afternoon adventure would be one of Park City's newest businesses, Park City Brewery, which Business Insider posted as one of  The 10 best breweries in American ski towns . Park City Brewery was started by a few locals who love the outdoors and beer, of course.   Their Tap Room menu boasts a cheese inspired collection of plates and their Megamind Pub Quiz Trivia Night is popular with locals and tourists.

As the sun starts to set, wrap up your day with one of the upcoming music events here in town or check out the lively nightlife on Main Street.

2/19-2/21 Beau Soliel avec Michael Doucet at the Egyptian Theatre

2/20 Railroad Earth at the Eccles Center

2/26-2/28 The Drifters at the Egyptian Theatre

And when you are ready to turn in for the evening and reflect on a great day, take a moment to peruse the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Utah Properties 2015 Market Report and feel free to ask us any questions about your next home here in Park City.

The Magic of Park City

There's Magic Here, and when you visit Park City you know you have come to someplace special. Meisha Lawson's article There's Magic Here elaborates on the feeling you get when you come to Park City. We have many clients who have bought a home in the Park City area after visiting for a holiday, Sundance or coming to see friends.

Karen and Steve have been coming to Park City for years and are now in the process of finding their new home away from home. Karen Pecota is an accomplished writer and has been writing about the Sundance Film Festival and Slamdance for a number of years. Check out our future blogs for some of Karen's upcoming work.

The Winter Edition of Epic Life 2015-2016 has shared some impressive stats on Vail Resorts and their update/remodel of the Park City Mountain Resort. Vail Resorts spent $50 million dollars in this investment that covers 7,300 acres and 17 peaks. Park City Mountain Resort has 38 lifts with 34,400 total vertical feet of all lifts combined, 16 on-mountain restaurants and a 22 foot high halfpipe. There are 38 snowcats at work with 480 snowmaking guns on hand.

Inc. posted an article the other day on Park City called This tiny Mountain Town is Home to Multimillion-Dollar Startups. Inc. shares that in a city of fewer than 8,000 people well-known to ski bums and film buffs, its entrepreneurs are cultivating their own reputations.

As the New Year is officially in full swing I wanted to share some of the Park City stats and some videos of the different neighborhoods.

Old Town Park City has Single Family homes ranging from $435,000 - $15,000,000, Condominiums from $150,000 -$2,400,000 and Homesites from $249,000 - $3,499,000 (numbers change regularly). Main Street hosts several events including the Kimball Arts Festival, Savor the Summit, the Independence Day Parade, Halloween for the whole Family, and just around the corner - Sundance.

Sundance is only a couple of weeks away and with all the visitors in town it is a great time to be a local. Locals can purchase special tickets and packages with access to all the great perks of the Sundance Film Festival. All the locals packages are sold out, but the locals single ticket sale starts January 14th. The sale runs from January 14-15 and starts at 10 am on January 14 - online only - and ends at 4 pm on January 15th. You must provide either a Utah driver's license or Utah state ID at time of ticket pickup.

One of the best parts of Sundance for me is that while the movies are running from early in the morning to late at night the ski resorts are almost empty. This is one of my favorite times of the year to snowboard as you feel as though the mountain is just for you.

This is also a great time to check out homes on the market. The Gomez Team is here all of Sundance for your real estate needs, just give us a call or send us an email. See you on the mountain.

Shop With A Cop

One of my favorite charity events of the year is the annual Shop With A Cop program here in Park City. Each year law enforcement from Park City and the surrounding areas join this great event to holiday shop with children from our area. This year we had about 50 officers from eight different branches of law enforcement shop with over 75 children from the three school districts in Summit County.

I am very proud to be a part of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Utah Properties real estate agency in Park City as we raised $7,500.00 for this event. We had over 60 of our local agents donate money to this great event and 24 agents and office staffers volunteer Saturday morning to wrap gifts for the children. My wife and I look forward to another great year of being involved With Shop With A Cop and wish you all a merry holiday season.

Kevin Murray, took pictures of the event and made a YouTube video of our great morning.
