Empire Pass

Utah Open Lands

Mountain roads connecting Park City, Midway and Big Cottonwood Canyon are now all open.

After an impressive snow season both Empire and Guardsman Pass are open for the season.

State Route 224 connects Midway to Park City, while State Route 190 connects Big Cottonwood Canyon to both Park City and Midway.

The roads typically close for the season with snow fall, either in late fall or early winter.

As of Wednesday, Mirror Lake Highway in eastern Summit County from Mile Post 14 to Mile Post 48 remains closed.

The Park City Transit Department several weeks ago put a new limit on the number of bikes that are allowed on the Empire Pass and  Silver Lake Village buses.   The city says it's partly for safety reasons, but the community says if you want people to ride buses, why are you now limiting them?   Lynn Ware Peek has more: 

A sheriff's sale Tuesday morning on Talisker property in Summit County wound up looking like a re-run. Like the sale last month in Wasatch County, there was only one bid. A representatives for Wells Fargo, the bank foreclosing on the property, make an offer for $35 million. Rick Brough has more.
