Did you know Park City’s first ski resort was actually started by two ski buddies?
This is Bill Redeker with your weekly Park City History Bit.
“Snow Park”, as the resort was called, was built in the summer of 1946 where lower Deer Valley Resort is today and was named after the local ski club. The founders were two friends, Otto Carpenter and Bob Burns.
The original lift, called the Ottobahn, was a T-bar. When the T-bars were unoccupied, they would drag in the snow, get caught and start pulling down the lift.
