If you’ve ever been curious about the very best value in The Colony – look no further.
192 White Pine Canyon Road
$1,700,000 | 4.040 Acres
Ski-in | Ski-out
We invite you to schedule a tour of this incredible homesite, filled with old-growth forest and boasting amazing ski-in, ski-out access, and begin building your legacy at The Colony. Connect with Bronson Calder for more information. View the listing HERE, and read a bit more about other opportunities here.
The Colony at White Pine Canyon is the largest gated ski-in, ski-out community in the United States. Our land spans 4600 acres, and approximately 90% of it will always be preserved as open space.
In winter, enjoy exclusive ski and snowboard access to one of America’s largest mountain resorts, Park City. In spring, the snow melts to reveal an amazing network of hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails, connecting to more than 400 miles of single-track trails throughout the surrounding area.
The Colony is just 35 minutes from Salt Lake International Airport and minutes to Park City’s historic Main Street, home to the Sundance Film Festival and world-class dining and shopping.
Music in the Meadow | July 2018
The first-ever Music in the Meadow was an evening filled with lovely music, delicious food, and a bull moose sighting! The event was held in the Meadow Lakes area of The Colony as a way to introduce the community to the magic of the upper meadow.
About 150 guests were ferried by golf cart to Homesite 270 (one of our favorites in the Meadow Lakes) and enjoyed music from Rogers & Buffington, food by Ellie’s, wine by Old Town Cellars, and homemade Ice Cream by Wasatch Creamery Ice Cream Co. Photos were captured by Eclectic Brew Productions.
Meadow Lakes Homesites
The Meadow Lakes Homesites are the initial release of our final chapter here at The Colony – Phase 5. The 12 spectacular homesites skirt the upper meadow of The Colony and offer flat building pads, incredible old-growth forest, and a remarkable water feature with five lakes and a waterfall-dotted stream. Just 5 Meadow Lakes Homesites remain:
267 White Pine Canyon Road
This homesite is tucked among old-growth aspens on a partially-wooded corner lot. It’s an easy build lot with big sky views and ski-in, ski-out access directly outside your door. Such close ski proximity means hiking and biking trails are just as close when the snow melts. Homesite 267 is perhaps the best value to be found in The Colony.
267 WPC Rd: 4.44 acres | Offered at $1.9 million
268 White Pine Canyon Road
Some of the largest aspens in The Colony are found on this homesite, which has exceptional views of the meadow water features. The homesite is nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac, with remarkable ski-in, ski-out access to multiple ski runs.
268 WPC Rd: 2.40 acres | Offered at $2.6 million
269 White Pine Canyon Road
More spectacular down-meadow views overlooking the meadow lakes are found from this homesite, which is partially-wooded with mature, healthy pine and aspen trees. This homesite has terrific ski-in, ski-out access from Quicksilver Gondola and the closest proximity to hiking and biking meadow trails.
269 WPC Rd: 2.42 acres | Offered at $2.5 million
270 White Pine Canyon Road
This is one of our very favorite homesites in The Colony – and the setting for our Music in the Meadow event. The setting is naturally extremely private, with some of the best down-meadow views available, with ski access.
270 WPC Rd: 3.33 Acres | Offered at $2.8 million
273 White Pine Canyon Road
An extremely private corner cul-de-sac homesite, due to its heavily forested setting. It has some of the oldest-growth, largest aspen trees in all of The Colony, and is one of our larger remaining lots available with, of course, ski-in, ski-out access.
273 WPC Rd: 4.74 acres | Offered at $1.9 million
Finally, congratulations to Darhl Bova, winner of our raffle for dinner for four this winter at The Colony Yurt!
PARK CITY INSTITUTE
Park City Institute, originally known as the Park City Performing Arts Foundation, was founded in 1998, to bring world-class performances and new ideas to the Park City community (photo courtesy: Park City Institute). This year is its 20th year of doing just that – it finds incredibly thought-provoking speakers and delightful performers and puts them in front of our community at the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Center stage.
PCI’s concert series, now in its 15th consecutive year, was a study in problem-solving after Deer Valley threw a huge curveball this spring. After 14 years of holding its events at the Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheatre, DV informed Park City Institute its St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Night Concerts Series would need to find a new home – just months before the 15th season was to begin.
An orderly scramble ensued, and a solution was manifested: pop-up concert events! The rest of this season’s shows will be held at the Quinn’s Junction Recreation Complex* (Grace Potter was held at City Park). The challenges didn’t stop there, however, as the location didn’t have parking – or any nearby concession options. PCI kept leaping those hurdles and came up with free luxury shuttles for those who park at the Eccles Center at Park City High School and Richardson Flat. And, for the ever-important food, they coordinated their brilliant Food Truck Court. (*UPDATE: On Friday, July 27, Park City City Council approved the request to move all remaining summer concerts to City Park; all other details remain the same.)
FOOD TRUCK COURT
If you ask us, the quality of the selection at the Food Truck Court alone is a draw to attend these PCI pop-ups! Check out who parks at each party:
You can pre-order picnics for the Big Stars, Bright Nights events from Riverhorse Provisions’ adorable food truck (well, really, for any occasion, but you can pick them up on-site at PCI’s pop-ups). Choose from the Southern Basket with fried chicken and creamy macaroni salad, the Falafel Box with falafel and tabbouleh, the Seafood Pack with shrimp cocktail and pasta salad – we could go on and on, but don’t make us because seriously, we’re getting hungry.
Freshie’s Lobster Co.
Park-City born-and-based Freshie’s is the home of the best lobster roll in the world, and those lobster rolls are up for grabs at each Big Stars, Bright Nights concert! The rolls come in three sizes, the Tourist, for those who only want 2 oz of fresh Maine lobster (just curious whether that size has ever been sold…), the Real Mainah, with 4 oz., and the XL, with 5 oz. of the good stuff. Ayuh.
Spencer’s Smokin’ Grill
Now, if you’re more in the mood for BBQ – head on over to Spencer’s. Pulled Pork, Pulled Chicken, BBQ Beans, Dirty Rice, Tri-Tip, and, of course, Cornbread can be found here. Few things could be more fun than a full rack at a concert.
Praise Cheezus Gourmet Grilled Cheese
This one is pretty self-explanatory – toasty, gooey, delicious grilled cheese! From savory cheezus choices (The Old Testament concoction has gouda, cheddar, swiss, and garlic cream cheese spread), to sweet cheezus (The Trinity has brie, triple berry compote, and wild honey) – these grilled cheese sandwiches are practically a spiritual experience.
Wasatch Creamery Ice Cream Company
Speaking of spiritual experiences, whatever you do while you’re at the events, *do not* miss the Wasatch Creamery ice cream bike. Flavors like Salted Oreo (do not even come near us with that because we cannot stop eating it), Lavender Blueberry, Peaches-n-Buttermilk, Peaches-n-Bourbon, Summer Strawberry (the most fresh thing we’ve ever tasted in our entire life), and Mango Sorbet, along with TONS of others, with more constantly being beta tested, are available at this station while supplies last.
Of course, attendees are always welcome to pack picnics, snacks, and beverages (you’re asked to avoid glassware for safety reasons), but with these world-class options *right there,* why bother?
Upcoming shows include Monday’s Chris Blue concert, Corinne Bailey Rae, and The Wallflowers. If you’d like to attend any of these upcoming events, you can buy tickets online, call or visit the Eccles Center Box Office (435-655-3114), or buy tickets at the on-site box office on the afternoon of the event.
Mission Statement: To enrich the community by providing innovative experiences that entertain, educate and illuminate.
To accomplish this goal, PCI depends on membership and donations. Learn more about membership opportunities HERE. Each level of membership includes advance ticket purchase options, invitations to special events and Members Only events, and recognition in Eccles Center Main Stage Playbills. Some memberships include tickets to events, early event entry, and parking passes.

It’s true — living in The Colony at White Pine Canyon feels like its own world: Ski-in, ski-out access from private homes nestled in the heart of North America’s largest ski resort, breathtakingly beautiful open lands which make life here feel like we are in our own national park, and an incredible collection of hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails networking from our doorsteps in warm-weather months.
Another large part of what makes life so special here at The Colony is the connection we have to our local Park City community. Our town is assiduous, active, and incredibly altruistic (there are more than 100 nonprofits based here, too), and we get to enjoy all of the wonderful opportunities and experiences which result!
SMALL BUSINESS SUNDAY
For our first Small Business Sunday highlight, in honor of National Ice Cream Day, we’re going to take a peek at Wasatch Creamery* Ice Cream Co. This company, owned and operated by Kris Tart, creates some of the most surprisingly delightful ice cream flavors you’ll ever find; selections like Brown Butter, Salted Oreo, Ginger Lime, Lavender Blueberry, and Basil & Blackberry, with new flavors being sampled and refined all the time.
As a general rule, a lot of the benefit of supporting local food businesses is you know right where your food comes from. And not only does this mean it tastes better, it can also make you healthier. Because the food is *right here* – it’s fresher, which means it maintains more nutrients, and you can easily learn the conditions the food is created in. And while, yes, we know, ice cream isn’t exactly known for being healthy – you’re gonna eat it anyway, so you might as well make the best selection possible! But, we digress.
Here’s the deal – each batch of Wasatch Creamery ice cream begins with a base created from locally-sourced milk and cream, organic sugar, and eggs. As founder Kris Tart says, “no stabilizers, no preservatives, no funny business.” In fact, Wasatch Creamery Ice Cream Company is one of the few in the country which uses a homemade ice cream base. It sources its milk and cream hyper-locally, from Rosehill Dairy, to ensure the very highest quality. And believe us (we’ve tried it), the base is good enough to eat on its own.
ICE CREAM INSIGHT
Why is Wasatch Creamery Ice Cream so darn delicious? It has to do with something called “overrun,” or, the amount of air in the ice cream. The industry standard is 50% — (one part air to every two parts cream). Wasatch Creamery Ice Cream is spun to have just 30% – the lowest you are likely to ever enjoy. It’s the technical reason the ice cream tastes so crazy creamy.
Wasatch Creamery Ice Cream Co. was developed in Park City. And, in true Park City (or should we say Bark City) style, Kris has a love for pups. This love inspired her to create puppy ice cream, and a local naming contest yielded the name Paw Pints. Made of organic yogurt, chicken stock, and bacon, this frozen treat is also available wherever you can find the human versions.
GET YOUR HANDS ON A CONE
All of the ice cream is homemade and handmade in Heber, Utah and is available at the Park City and Salt Lake City Farmers’ Markets, Park Silly Sunday Market, St. Regis’ Big Stars, Bright Nights Concert Series (programmed by Park City Institute), Twisted Fern, Victory Ranch, Copper Moose Farm, and Campos Coffee, with additional availability to be announced soon.
*Wasatch Creamery Ice Cream Co. is a client of Miller Media & Communications, which created the content for this blog post.
Ok. Yeah. This week has been HOT. For those of us who are lucky enough to live in Park City, the need for air conditioning can be a rude awakening, and, since many of us up here don’t have air conditioning, this can make a few people just a little, tiny, teeny bit grumpy.
Luckily, the weekend has arrived, and with it, some of the most fun events to experience in Park City this summer season. Maybe we’ll see you out there this weekend. Watch for us. We’ll be the ones trailing the Wasatch Creamery Ice Cream Co. bike, re-filling our ice cream cone nonstop to keep cool, and loving every minute of it.
