Totally PC: You know you’re a Park City local when….

PARK CITY, Utah. — Just because you got here before the real estate Gold Rush known as 2020 doesn’t mean you’re going to win any local trivia contests. See below for examples of the real deal. And long-timers, add your own contributions in the comments section at the end – we’ll publish follow-up lists.

  • You refer to Fresh Market as Safeway, Walgreens as Rite Aid, The Market at Park City as Dan’s, Michaels/TJ Maxx/World Market as K Mart, Fairweather Foods as the only health food store in town, Home Goods as Whole Foods, and you sometimes forget that there is even a store at all in Pinebrook.
  • You grumble, just a little, but audibly, when you have to walk aaaall the way through Lot 5 at Deer Valley to catch the free shuttle that used to pick you up at the very end.
  • You think you’ll just drive the original only back road up Sun Peak to the Utah Olympic Park.
  • You still turn in there forgetting you can’t park to ski all day in the southernmost section of the Park City Mountain lot.
  • You look up at the little high windows at the Live On Main St. building and think about how KPCW used to broadcast out of there.
  • You rode in the passenger snow cat up to ski down before Empire Lift was a thing at Deer Valley.
  • You walked down the stairs on Main St. next to the Museum to go to the liquor store or went to the only other liquor store in Prospector.
  • You washed your camper’s body, your muddy bike and your stinky dog off in the dirt parking lot down behind what was White Pine Touring on lower Main St. – now the hidden swimming pool of the Marriot.
  • You skied the sculpted moguls of the Deer Valley Terrain Park next to what is now the Montage.
  • You were one of a thousand standing shoulder to shoulder at the Book Brigade that, hand to hand, passed the books back to the then-newly rebuilt Park City Library from the temporary storage of the Miners Hospital.
  • You know people or at least know people who know people who attended school in the Marsac Bldg. – now known as City Hall.
