About Park City Magazine
Lodestar Magazine’s first issue was published in 1977, named in reference to the silver mining heritage that still formed much of Park City, Utah’s identity. The mines had been in decline for decades and so with it the community. In those days, our first ski resort had only recently opened and a quaint historic home just off Main Street would only set you back a few thousand dollars. With the addition of two more ski resorts however, winter recreation eventually became the new “lodestar,” generating the silver that revitalized our local economy. As our community grew and evolved, so did the magazine, and in 1989 we officially changed our name to Park City Magazine.
Since then, Park City’s landscape has continued to change, with the addition of various Olympic facilities (Park City hosted most of the alpine events and the bobsled, luge and Nordic jumping during the 2002 Olympic Winter Games), a multitude of golf courses, luxury homes and lodging, swanky restaurants, a greater variety of recreational and cultural activities, and more (and more affluent) residents. Park City has, in the space of three decades, developed into an international, world-class vacation destination and a highly desirable place to live.
Through all of these changes, Park City Magazine has been there as a witness to and expression of one of the most unique, vibrant and beautiful places on earth. We are truly a voice for the community, with a network of nearly 60 freelance writers, photographers and artists covering topics including recreation, the arts, nature, politics, dining, history, architecture, home and garden, fashion and more. We present personalities, comment on issues, foster community involvement, follow emerging trends, keep in touch with the natural world, honor our unique history by reminiscing about the past, and describe and celebrate what’s new.
