Park City, Utah in the 70’s

The Park City Rental Company invited me to share my recollections of Park City Past.

In 1979, I remember when we finally got to Park City because of the traffic light. There was such a long stretch of nothing where the Red Stone Mall is now, and then we would turn right at the light after the Alpha Beta and after a few blocks pull into the Shadow Ridge parking lot.

Back then, we would take the bus to Main Street for dinner just as we do now. I remember staring out the window waiting to see it coming from the stop at the bottom of the lifts. We would run down the hall, take the elevator and skip though the parking lot to have the shortest wait outside in the cold for the bus. I miss Claimjumper, which was my favorite place for grilled chicken with a piece of pineapple on top. The menus on green glass bottles always amused me. I just never saw that in Los Angeles. It seemed clever and retro all at once without any pretentiousness it would have had at home.
