Park City will play host to two stages of the 2013 Tour of Utah. The tour will pass through Park City’s Historic District with a sprint and a climb up and over Guardsman Pass. In addition, Park City's Historic Main Street will serve as the Start and Finish for the challenging and final Stage 6 which includes two epic climbs up and over Wolf Creek Ranch and up and over Guardsman Pass followed by a speedy descent into Historic Park City. The champion of the 2013 Tour of Utah will be crowned on Historic Main Street following the race.
Within Park City limits, altitudes range from 6,720 ft. to 8,460 ft. above sea level, while the surrounding Wasatch Mountains rise to over 10,000 ft. A week or even a few days in this historic former silver mining town is far more memorable than your average vacation destination. And one of the most surprising reasons for this fact hits you before you even arrive. The scenic mountain hideaway with three full-service, year-round resorts is extremely accessible, situated just a 35-minute ride from Salt Lake City International Airport. After you arrive, enjoy over 100 restaurants and bars, world-class lodging properties, hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails, and hundreds of stores and shops.
