Park City - Vail Resorts Inc. has proposed a plan to create the largest ski resort in North America by linking Park City Mountain Resort with The Canyons ski resort. The new resort will go by the name Park City Mountain Resort and the planned upgrades will include an eight passenger high speed gondola that connects from the base of Silverload Lift at the Park City Mountain Resort to The Canyons Flatiron lift. The plan for the King Con chairlift is to increase the capacity to a 6-person high speed lift which will provide for the ability to handle higher capacity and keep the lift line wait times reasonable. The $50 million will also be used to build a new Snow Hut Restaurant and upgrades to the Summit House Restaurant. We are told that there will be a $5,000,000 investment into maintenance projects around the resort such as snowmaking. The name switch won’t be until 2015-2016 and the resort will go by “Park City Mountain Resort” while The Canyons base will be renamed/rebranded as “Canyons at Park City”.
