PARK CITY, Utah. — Silver Mountain Sports Club first opened in Prospector Square 22 years ago, anchoring the area, and 16 years ago opened its second location at the Silver Mountain Building in Kimball Jct. In a sign of the changing times – and the white-hot real estate market – both businesses are now up for sale.
“It’s time to pass the torch,” said owner and long-time Parkite Stanton Jones. “I didn’t publicly go on the market, I’ve just had unsolicited interest so I’ve been entertaining it. I let my staff know so I could be fully transparent with them so they’d know I’ve been talking to people. I haven’t reached out to anyone, they’ve all reached out to me.”
Jones, the former founder and owner of Park City Television, has been a staunch supporter of for-profit and nonprofit organizations around town.
“I think this town needs an alternative to the recreation centers, and Silver Mountain is a world-class facility that provides an alternative,” he said. “It’s been very gratifying, especially during COVID times, to help people stay healthy and maintain their fitness goals.”
“It’s really important to me that I can find somebody that has the same commitment to the community as I do,” said Jones.
The businesses can be purchased together or separately.
Members have always been able to utilize the services of either location to accommodate their preferences, and visitors to town have historically been welcome to enjoy daily rates at these fitness facilities.
The Kimball Jct. gym shares a building with multiple other businesses, including Spigot Web Design, Park City Dental Spa, and Park City’s only SCUBA shop. Locals may recall the former tenant, Monkey Mountain child play place. The original Prospector location is adjacent to the Rail Trail recreation area, making it a magnet for summertime fun.
The Kimball Jct. building is just a hop, skip, and a jump from the Basin Rec. Fieldhouse athletic club and the Prospector building is about a par five from the M.A.R.C., the other in-town, large-scale workout spot.
Inquiries about the properties are being fielded by Jones himself, who can be reached at (435) 640-5555.
