KPCW is reporting that Vail is changing some signs in town to use the name “Park City Mountain Resort” instead of Park City. That’s kind of them, I we suppose.
However, today we received a random catalog in the mail from a company called uncommongoods. On page 33, we noticed a nice poster for PARK CITY. It provides a brief history of the town, some info about geography, a drawing of our mountains, and of course the words “Vail Resort Official Licensed Product.”
We’re not sure what exactly needed to be “officially licensed.” Is it the town’s history? The elevation of the mountain? The name Park City?
I guess, maybe there are some lift names on it, but it sure seems like they are treating Park City just like another one of its company towns.
