Park City Won't Be Providing Access to Bonanza Flat this Winter

UDOT closes the road during the winter because even during the summer - the road is considered dangerous.

This is the first winter that Park City has had ownership of Bonanza Flat, the 1,350 acres of open space at the top of Guardsman Pass. Now that ski season is upon us, Park City residents who are paying for 25 of the $38-million price tag may be wondering how they can access the open space they’re paying for now that Guardsman Gate is locked for the winter.

As KPCW’s Melissa Allison reports, only Brighton Estate residents who purchase a $600 key can drive their cars on SR-224. Even so, the road continues to be open to the public by all other means including hiking, skiing and snowmobiling.
