Park City is about to become the largest USA ski resort when it is linked to Canyons ski resort for the 2015 / 2016 ski season. The Utah resorts are to be combined into one ski resort called Park City with a base area at Canyons as well as Park City.
An incredible $50 million dollars is being invested in one year to build a gondola over the Summer of 2015 to connect the 2 ski resorts, to upgrade existing lifts & improve on mountain restaurants.
The new ski resort will be huge with 7300 acres of skiable terrain, nearly 23 miles of lifts and a combined total vertical rise of all the lifts of 34,400 feet. With 17 peaks, 14 bowls, over 300 ski runs, over 150 park features & 16 on-mountain restaurants the new Park City Mountain Resort is going to be a "must ski" USA ski resort.
Chalets USA are adding Park City to our portfolio for the 2015 / 2016 ski season.
The new interconnect gondola - the "Quicksilever gondola" is to be an 8 person high speed gondola which can whisk skiers back & forth between Park City & what was canyons ski resort. The new gondola will run from the base of the current Silverlodge Lift in Park City to the Flatiron Lift at canyons. It will be possible for skiers to unload at the top of Pine Cone Ridge & ski or snowboard down to Park City's Thaynes Canyon when conditions allow. Guests will also be able to access the Iron Mountain area at canyons through new runs to be added from Pine Cone Ridge.

Park City will be upgrading both the Kingcon & Motherlode lifts. King Con will change to a 6 person high speed detachable chair increasing lift capacity from the old 4 person lift. The Motherlodge lift will also make it easier for guests to access the slopes from an upgrade to a 4 person high speed detachable lift from the ol fixed-grip triple chairlift.
The old Park City Snow Hut next to the base of Park City's Silverlode Lift will be completely replaced with a new Snow Hut restaurant called Miners Camp. It will also be next to the Park City terminal for the new Quicksilver Gondola. The new restaurant will have 500 inside seats, a top of the line kitchen & improved cuisine. The Summit House restaurant will be upgraded to have more seating and improve the flow of dining guests. Lastly The Red Pine Lodge restaurant at Canyons is due to have a 250 additional indoor seat renovation, meaning more space for diners to enjoy their meals as well as their skiing!
