The Colony at White Pine Canyon | Park City, Utah
General Manager

About the Community
Nestled among 4,600 acres of pristine, high-alpine terrain in the White Pine Canyon in Park City, Utah, is a private, gated, ski-in/ski-out community unlike any other in the world.

The Colony is a world-class, ski-in, ski-out, forested mountain residential community of up to 299 home sites spread over 4,600 acres. The remarkable natural beauty of the mountain environment demands homes of the highest design and construction quality that preserves the environmental and visual integrity of the natural landscape.

Access, privacy, and open space are among the elements which set The Colony at White Pine Canyon apart. For those who live here, directly in the heart of the largest ski and snowboard resort in the United States, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, biking, horseback riding, and more are right at your doorstep.

Iron Mountain Associates (IMA) commenced work on The Colony Master Plan in 1992. Under this plan, each home site has a designated building envelope measuring about one-half acre in size, and the remainder of the lot is preserved as open space. Unique to The Colony is the ability for homeowners to construct a main residence, a separate guest house, and an accessory building. The considerable size of the home sites, too, distinguishes them. Current offerings average more than seven acres per lot, the largest to be found within just about any private, gated, ski-in/ski-out community.

The Colony Master Plan contemplated a future connection between Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons crossing its property long before the notion was floated publicly by the separate owners of the two resorts. But then in 2013, Vail Resorts signed a long-term lease to operate Canyons and in 2014 purchased Park City Mountain Resort outright. With the debut of the Quicksilver gondola in December 2015, the two resorts became one, and once hidden, White Pine Canyon is now at the center of what’s arguably Utah’s best-known ski and snowboard playground, and its pristine beauty is enjoyed by people from all over the world.

Open space is the thread with which Nearly 90% of the development’s 4,600 acres will remain pristine and untouched open space, as a preservation which is protected with deed restrictions.

Homeowners at The Colony get direct and exclusive access to as much, or as little, entertainment as they prefer. Resort offerings include scenic lift and gondola rides, golf of all types, farmers markets and open-air concerts, alpine slides, coasters, zip lines, and more. Within The Colony, when the snow melts, a massive network of public and private hiking, biking, walking, and horseback riding trails is revealed. The trails connect to more than 400 miles of singletrack throughout the surrounding Park City area, including the acclaimed 26-mile Mid-Mountain Trail, which runs directly through The Colony.

With an average snowfall of 25 feet per year, homeowners can enjoy fresh tracks of all sorts, from those left by the wildlife to the ones Colony residents leave on the slopes. The ski day begins and ends at the front door for Colony homeowners.

The Colony is just 35 miles from Salt Lake International Airport, and 22 miles from Heber Valley Airport, which is perfect for those with a private jet. Once you arrive, you’re a mere five miles to Park City’s Historic Main Street, home to the Sundance Film Festival and world-class dining and shopping.
