Park City Mountain Resort News Update - Friday, Jan. 18, 2002
************************************************** ********************************

Greetings, and thank you for your loyalty as we head into the final stretch of Olympic preparations.

Here's the latest news from Park City Mountain Resort:


We appreciate your many responses concerning ski-only and snowboard-only trails.
We tested the program last weekend, collected your input this week and can
announce that the vast majority of our guests do not believe restricted trails
are necessary. While a vocal minority may wish to have them, 95% of you have
voted not to restrict trail use. Thank you again for your opinions. The test is
over, and trail restrictions have been lifted.


Please notice our increased contingent of snowboard instructors at lift loading/unloading and other key locations. Along with new safety signage on the
mountain, these instructors have been deployed to provide informational
assistance to newcomers to snow sports. They are educating young guests on
safety, rules of the road, sitting or stopping on trails and on-mountain etiquette.

We also have a large group of Mountain Patrol members on skis and boards who
are just as focused on educating the young skiing/riding public, and the results
are beginning to show. They have pulled 69 passes since the start of the season,
with 78% of this activity taking place prior to New Year's. Since the start of
this month, pass-pulling incidents have dropped significantly. Our ongoing
educational outreach into the Wasatch Front should further spur this improvement,
as our goal is to educate, rather than simply punish, in all such cases.
