Park City Streets Empty Following Early Ski Resort Closure

Park City, Utah is a ghost town with near empty streets due to COVID 19 restrictions put in place. Many Snelgrove Travel and customers are disappointed the Utah ski season was cut short. Friday marked day one of the Summit County “Stay at Home” order and a empty Main Street in Park City showed residents are complying.

“It’s a little eerie,” said Park City resident Meghan Gies, who was walking her dog. “It’s nice when it calms down, but this is a little too calm”. This reflects the sentiments of the staff at Snelgrove Travel in Layton Utah and the ski desk at

Summit County was the first county in Utah to have such an order to flatten the COVID 19 curve. County health officials reported 102 confirmed cases of the virus on Friday, the second-highest total of any county in Utah.

The order is not a complete lockdown or a shelter in place, and officials wanted to remind Park City area residents they can leave their homes for essentials like food and gas while maintaining a six-foot social distance.

Park City Police Captain Phil Kirk reported that police have ramped up patrols, making sure people are complying in areas like the business district and where people tend to exercise.
