Ski Resorts Expand and Launch Winter Operations Park City

It’s a new era in Park City as Vail Resorts opens Park City, the largest single ski and snowboard resort in the United States, this upcoming 2015-16 ski season, with the completion of a $50 million renovation connecting Park City Mountain Resort with the former Canyons Resort. Park City offers over 7,300 acres, 300+ trails and 41 lifts, plus many diverse ski-in/ski-out and village adjacent lodging properties.

The new high speed two-way gondola, Quicksilver, will take guests from the base of the existing Silverlode Lift at Park City to the Flatiron Lift area at Canyons. There will also be an additional mid-station at the top of Pine Cone Ridge, allowing skiers and riders the opportunity to ski into Thaynes Canyon via gated ski access or to the Iron Mountain area through new trails.

Park City will spice things up by replacing the old Snow Hut restaurant with the brand new Miners Camp restaurant, conveniently located at the base of Silverlode Lift and the future base terminal of the Quicksilver Gondola. Doubling in size, the new dining spot will boast 500 indoor seats.

Additional dining upgrades include increased seating capacity, enhancements and renovations to Red Pine Lodge and Summit House restaurants. Park City will open for the 2015-16 ski season on November 21, 2015. Click here for more information.
