Residents of the greater Salt Lake City area can ski or ride at [R314R, Park City Mountain Resort] for $25 from opening day, Nov. 19, until Dec. 16, while once again donating to help conserve land around Summit County.

The drawbacks are that there is a limited number of these discounted tickets, and they must be purchased in person at a variety of Park City locations and the Sports Den in Salt Lake City. Ext

Since 2003, not-for-profit organizations have been the beneficiaries of Benefit Days that have raised more than $400,000 for Park City nonprofits, according to Jenni Smith, president and general manager of Park City Mountain Resort. This season, Summit Land Conservancy will be the primary recipient. In addition, the Wasatch Mountain resort will sell another batch of $25 lift tickets to fill the coffers of the newly formed Park City Mountain Resort Legacy Fund.

The land conservancy organization works with landowners to permanently protect agricultural land, view-sheds, wildlife habitats, waterways and rangelands in the county that surrounds Park City. The legacy fund serves as a central fundraising source that funnels money to the nonprofits of Park City.

Tickets can be purchases at the resort services office, Jans, Cole Sports and Zions Bank in Park City, as well as the Salt Lake City sports shot Sports Den. A limit of four tickets per person will be enforced.
