Summit County is a county located in the U.S. state of Utah, occupying a rugged and mountainous area. As of the 2010 census, the population was 36,324. Its county seat is Coalville, and the largest city is Park City. The county is so named because it includes 39 of the highest mountain peaks in Utah.

The county's mean elevation is above sea level, which is the second-highest of any county outside of Colorado.[1] Owing to its proximity to Salt Lake City, Park City has acquired a reputation as an upscale getaway, bringing new development to the area.

Summit County is part of the Salt Lake City Metropolitan Statistical Area as well as the Salt Lake City–OgdenClearfield Combined Statistical Area.
