Vail Resorts wins approval for the Park City Canyons Interconnect Gondola
The Interconnect Gondola that will link #ParkCity Mountain Resort and Canyons Resort for the 2015/2016 ski season won unanimous approval in a historic vote that allows Vail Resorts to move ahead with its plans to create the largest ski area in the U.S. #VailResorts see the Interconnect Gondola as the centerpiece of their improvement plan, just part of their unprecedented $50 million investment this year as the two resorts are molded into over 7,300 acres of skiable terrain.
The eight-passenger Park City Canyons gondola will travel between a point close to the base of the Silverlode lift at PCMR to a location at the Flatiron lift at Canyons Resort, in the heart of The Colony, a luxury ski-in/ski-out resort development in the heart of Canyons Resort. The route covers 7,650 feet, nearly 1 1/2 miles, with an unloading point just off the top of Pine Cone Ridge, transforming the Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons Resorts ski and riding experience, allowing skiers and riders the opportunity to ski into Thaynes Canyons at Park City via gated ski access or to the Iron Mountain area at Canyons through new trails that will be created from Pine Cone Ridge.
Additional improvements this season will be a larger, more improved Snow Hut restaurant will be needed as a result of the connection. Improvements to the Motherlode and King Con lifts and snowmaking will be also be incorporated in this ambitious upgrade to one is already one of America’s top ski resorts. The plan also includes almost $5 million of “catch up” maintenance and upgrades at Park City.
