Is there any public transportation to Park City from Salt Lake City?

Thanks in advance.

Tons. Go to the Park City site and look up the limo and bus companies. I think the ones we've used were all:

Wow! Looks like I will pay the extra money and race at Snowbird - I can't afford those prices. :/

Oh, is this something you would have to do daily, as opposed to you are flying in on vacation?

Yeah, I am moving to Salt Lake City (Westminster College).

You'll have to wait about ten years before AFFORDABLE public transportation is available between SLC & PC. Maybe by then PC will be a linked suburb of SLC and Utah Trax will go up there. Actually that might happen sooner given the growth rates around here.

Wait, you were the guy looking for info on college ski teams! You've already winnowed down the list, applied and been accepted???

This college doesn't even seem to have a ski team? Not even a USCSA team? Beyond the fact that it is in Utah, what was the draw?

you can try finding rides to / from PC, via the local npr stations, i think they offer a ride board for people needing to get back n forth from pc/slc. Lots of commuters going each way all day/every day.
Plus go to uta.com, they use to offer idea for car/van pools

Well, yes, because it's not the ONLY COLLEGE in Salt Lake.

You're right, they don't. I will be racing (most likely) for Snowbird.

I wasn't officially accepted, but I talked to the transfer counselor and if you are a transfer student, and have a 2.5 or higher GPA, you are automatically accepted. Currently, I have a 3.2. Once, I have a 3.5, I will receive a 6500 dollar scholarship.

Chris

Powdr, Utah Trax goes to Alta/Snowbird, correct? That's my understanding...

Yes, you can ride UTA to Solitude/Brighton and Alta/Bird. Used to do it when I was freshman at the U. The line from the U goes along Foothill (at least it did), so you will have to connect from where you are (13th East) up to foothill. Or, better yet, connect up w/ some new-found friends and share gas up to LCC/BCC. BTW, Westminster is a good school and located in a fun part of town, not too far from the party scene at the U (if that's what interests you).

jamesdeluxe: read the article in SKI magazine about Utah beer.

Yeah, I know, Westminster has a 95 percent graduate school acceptance rate. I'm so excited about going!

The Westminster transfer counselor told me it would cost only 15 dollars for the year since I am a college student. I don't know if that includes the Trax or just the bus system.

Chris

Oh, BTW, you wouldn't happen to know any Masters or J1 level ski teams besides what http://www.sbsef.com/ offers?

UTA/Trax I think are one and the same. As for ski programs, my roomate was on the Snowbord team as a J1, but that was 15 years ago. Don't know anything about the program now, or what is offered at other resorts. I do know that The Park City Ski Team is one of the best in the nation, being one of the few feeder teams into the USST. Most kids/young adults in the PC area with serious racing/freestyle asperations are all involved with that team, and they also get people moving into the area just so they can be on the team. Hope that helps. Good Luck w/ the skiing & the studying.

Yeah, I know. I was gonna join the masters team, but since there's no public transportation that's affordable, it looks like I'll be racing at Snowbird.

No car? Cheap Subies are readily available and are high in gas milleage.
