In Case You Missed It
Slide into Winter at The Luke Ridge Tubing Hill
The Luke Ridge Tubing Hill will open Friday, December 17th (weather permitting). Hot chocolate will be available inside the Beach House.
Tubing for owners and members will be included as part of your monthly dues!
All owners can be issued a season pass for each member of their household (household includes immediate family members). To get your season pass, you’ll need to fill out a tubing hill waiver (link below), then head to the Reservations Desk at the Nicklaus Clubhouse to have your picture taken for your Tubing Hill season pass. Please note that passes are non-transferable and will be revoked with unauthorized use. We cannot allow any member, owner, or guest to use the tubing hill without a signed tubing hill waiver in place.
You may continue to invite your guests. Fees for guest use will still apply. Waivers required.
Tubing Hill Hours
Friday-Sunday | 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm
For your safety, we ask that you please do not use the tubing hill when it’s closed.
Conservancy Member Meeting
The Annual Conservancy Member Meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 15.
Please keep an eye for details.
Holiday Decor & Lighting
Owners may display holiday decorations located or visible from outside their Residences if the decorations are of the kinds normally displayed in single-family residential Villages, are of reasonable size and scope, and do not disturb other Owners and residents by excessive light or sound emission or by causing an unreasonable amount of spectator traffic. Holiday decorations may be displayed in season only from November 1 to March 1 and, during other times of the year, from one week before to one week after any nationally recognized holiday.

Park City Fire District has remarked that Promontory homes are uniquely prepared for fire, due to the use of con-combustible exterior materials, proper vent screening, and incorporating defensible space when installing landscaping. We are not likely to see a catastrophic fire that engulfs the whole community, as there are not enough big fuel sources nor do we get strong enough winds to cause a spread, and our trails and golf courses serve as excellent fuel breaks. Rather, we are most susceptible to individual homesite damage from drifting embers, so it’s important to clear out all dead vegetation, especially from gutters, and cover vents and other openings with a 1/16-1/8” screen.
Please consider these other simple tips to be prepared:
- Prune tree limbs so the lowest branches are several feet above the ground.
- Fire embers are hot and travel easily in the breeze, so cover any exterior attic, soffit, or under-eave vents with metal wire mesh to prevent sparks from entering the home.
- Clear out dead, dry vegetation under all decks and patios and any that directly abuts the home.
- Consult with PCFD, who make themselves available, free of charge, for homesite evaluations. The Fire Inspection office can be reached at 435-940-2500.
- Ensure your home is marked with a visible, easy-to-read, non-combustible address identifier, in the event emergency response is needed at your home.
- Review the many informational resources are available to us from PCFD and Firewise.
- Be sure to familiarize yourself with all Promontory exits in the case of an extreme emergency. View the map below.
Please Do Not Feed The Animals
Life at Promontory comes with a front-row seat to a unique display: wildlife. Between the deer, elk, porcupines, and many others, the landscape is full of animals most people do not have the opportunity to see. As a steward of the open space at Promontory, the Conservancy is tasked with maintaining and preserving this natural environment, including the wildlife habitat. With input from state wildlife offices, we have learned that the best way to do this is to allow the animals the opportunity to live on their own, without any supplemental care. As such, we ask that Promontory owners please not leave out food or other attractants for the animals. Though it may seem counterintuitive, this practice has the potential to do more harm than good.
Thank you for respecting these creatures. We share their space and are fortunate to
have one-of-a-kind access to their world – our collective cooperation will ensure this access continues for years to come.
Due to safety reasons, we ask that you please do not park along the roadway or anywhere near dry grass.
Please keep all parking within your driveway. This includes any guests, vendors, landscapers, and even your own vehicles. Temporary on-street parking may be available on a case-by-case basis if pre-approved. For approval please email the Conservancy below.
With the arrival of spring, we expect many Promontory residents will be eager to beautify their homesites. If you are considering significant changes to your landscaping, please contact Christine Morr prior to doing any work to ensure your plans are consistent with the Design Guidelines.
Trash Pick up
On trash pickup day, please keep all trash inside your dumpster, with the lid closed. Please DO NOT leave cardboard boxes, furniture, or anything else that won’t fit in the dumpster on the ground – the truck drivers will not stop to collect anything outside the dumpster.
If your weekly trash is more than will fit in your dumpster, please contact Republic Services (435-615-8311) for another dumpster.
Our community is active, out, and about. Be safe when walking. When walking along a road, walk only on the shoulder (off of the asphalt), as far as practicable from the edge of the asphalt roadway. Where a sidewalk or a road shoulder is not available, walk on the outside edge of the roadway; and walk only on the far left side of the roadway facing oncoming traffic. The best place to walk is on Promontory’s 30 miles of trails.
Some years ago Summit County created a system to provide phone, email, and text messages regarding emergencies. The system was upgraded such that anyone who previously signed up will need to sign up again.
The alert center also provides information about non-emergency matters in and about Summit County.
