Park City, Utah
Park City is home to 8,500 residents and welcomes 600,000 tourists during the year. It was once a silver
mining town, but in the 1970s it was converted to the ski and recreational industries. Two resorts, Deer Valley
and Park City Mountain, boast some of the best skiing in the world. The area is also known internationally
for its Sundance Film Festival, attended by over 50,000 people each year in January. Of late, the area has
become a destination for mountain biking enthusiasts. Other nearby areas for residents include Salt Lake
City, Utah’s capital, and the towns of Kamas, Francis, Oakley, and Heber. The cost of living in Park City itself
tends to be considerably higher than the national average due to housing costs, however, homes within a
15–30-mile commute are closer to national averages. Ultimately, the quality of living is very high due to
recreational, social, and cultural opportunities that proliferate in the area.

The Campus
Telos utilizes the campus of Mountain Life Church. This has been an excellent partnership and one that
both parties intend to maintain. It features beautiful outdoor areas for play and recreation. It also features
a bucolic background with fields and mountain ranges in the background.
