The ski resort maintenance building at Canyons Village at Park City Mountain Resort was demolished in preparation for the new season.

The removal of this eye sore bodes well for the Frostwood area, which includes the developments of Juniper Landing, Viridian and Waldorf Astoria Park City. These developments are all poised to capture the current energy and continued evolution of Canyons Village.

As the backhoe began to tear the building down, cheers erupted from those observing from the Waldorf’s deck including their staff, TCFC executives and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Utah Realtors ®, who represent many projects in the area. Champagne and pastries provided by Waldorf Astoria added to the joyful morning.

Larry White, TCFC’s CEO and his team have worked diligently to comply with the agreements made long ago between Canyon’s SPA and the County. The demolition of the maintenance building was part of that agreement.  The expanded 11th hole of the Canyon’s golf course, and its green will occupy the site. This week, we are happy to report one more milestone achieved in the Canyons Village plan.

Sat., Jul. 30: RobertEWeb525x284 2

Robert Ellis:Coming out of Houston, Texas with a robust sense of musical adventurousness, Robert Ellis crafts what has been called an impeccably structured sound—one that exists outside of neat categorization. Although listeners can hear traces of Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon, Ellis’ use of basic country elements, like his soulful twang and fearless storytelling, coupled with jazzy chord voicings and shredded guitar lines, separate him from the rest. Get a taste of his diverse sound when he takes to the Mountain Stage.

Sat., Aug. 27: BLSHWeb525x284 2

Bright Light Social Hour:Influenced by genres such as hard rock, R&B, electronica and pop, Bright Light Social Hour conjures a bold new version of psychedelic music. Their unique conjuring is displayed on their second album, which was released last year, “Space is Still the Place.” On this illusionary record and at the band’s performances, listeners find some songs that mirror harsh truths with guitars and blues energy, while the group's other dreamier electronic-influenced moments are about escaping those dark realities. Come hear this vibrant group and learn why they were named “Band of the Year” at SXSW in 2011.

Sat., Sept. 3: SMSWeb525x284 2
Smooth Hound Smith: Established in 2012, and currently based in East Nashville, TN, Smooth Hound Smith records and performs a varied yet distinctive style of folky, garage-infused rhythm & blues. The foot stompin' American roots duo is comprised of "one-man-band" Zack Smith who plays guitar, foot drums, harmonica, banjo, and sings, as well as Caitlin Doyle who sings and plays percussion. Revel in their modern interpretation of early blues, soul, and rock 'n' roll at the final concert in our Summer Series!

It’s perhaps no surprise that 2015—the year the U.S. Federal Reserve began to raise interest rates—was quite a good year for the luxury second-home market. In such an environment, there’s a buyers’ impetus—even if in the mind only—to close real estate deals while money is still cheap. Last year, according to our research partner RealtyTrac, the median price of second homes above $1 million on our exclusive list of 20 luxury resorts increased 11%, to $2 million, the same percentage increase for the median price of all houses in the country. You can find our second-home table compiled by Sonia Talati on page 34, complete with prices and local-market intelligence. Our survey tracks $1-million-plus single-family houses in ZIP Codes with a high percentage of second-home residences, and we rank the 20 resorts according to our judgment of their livability and value. Read More...
