Coordinates: 40°30′N 111°30′W / 40.5°N 111.5°W / 40.5; -111.5 The Wasatch Back is an area in the U.S. state of Utah located east of the Wasatch Front. It includes such cities as Park City, Heber, and Morgan. While originally a mining and agricultural region, it has experienced a rapid growth spurt through the 1990s and continuing in the 2000s. It is a very affluent region; Summit County is one of the richest counties in the nation. People have moved here looking to escape the congestion and pollution of the Wasatch Front, as well as its popularity for recreational activities, such as skiing. Park City is also the site of numerous shows and film festivals, such as the world-famous Sundance Film Festival.
