History of Park City, Utah
Taken from the Utah History Encyclopedia (Links Added)

Mining activity slowed greatly because of various depressions. By the 1950s Park City was almost dead; but due to the increase in winter recreational activity (especially skiing), the town experienced a rebirth in the 1960s and thrives as a key resort town in northern Utah and the West. The Deer Valley area was added to Park City's development in the 1980s, and has added to its reputation as an excellent winter skiing area, as has also Park West resort. In 1976 Park City's local government passed a Land Management Code, delineating historic districts and instituting preservation ordinances. In 1978 the Park City Main Street Historic District was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Other listings followed as the historic character of Park City was viewed as a key element in the town's colorful past and part of its attraction for the future.
