Scott Smithson is a serial entrepreneur and highly seasoned real estate developer throughout the Intermountain West. He is the founder and driving force behind The Ascent Park City, a mindful, modern luxury boutique ski condo-hotel.
When not doing real estate development, Smithson can be found in the race car. With a background in motocross and other adrenaline-filled sports, Smithson found a passion for racecar driving in 2017. By 2020 Smithson entered his first full season of professional racing competing in the SRO TCR series as part of DXDT Racing. Smithson reached the podium three times throughout his first professional season.
Now in 2021, Smithson joined Atlanta Speedwerks to compete in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge with co-driver Ryan Eversley. The duo placed third in their first race together. Smithson and Eversley will be finishing the 2021 season in the No. 94 The Ascent Park City Honda. “I am very excited to proudly represent The Ascent Park City and Atlanta Speedwerks here at Road America and throughout the rest of the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge season,” Smithson said. “With Ryan Eversley fighting for a championship, I am focused on delivering a brilliant result for our team.”
The Ascent Park City, located at the foot of the largest ski resort in the United States, offers owners and visitors alike four-seasons of recreation, dining and shopping at Park City Mountain’s Canyons Village. The Ascent consists of 120 fully furnished ski-in/ski-out residences, including studio and one-bedroom plans, starting in the $500’s. The boutique condo-hotel is part of the exclusive Tapestry Collection by Hilton, designed by the prestigious Sarah Sherman Samuel. The Ascent is scheduled for ground breaking in August of 2021.
