Massive $50 Million Project Announced to Connect PCMR and Canyons: Park City on its Way to Becoming the Preeminent Ski Destination in the United States

Vail Resorts recently announced a $50 million project that will connect two of Park City’s three ski resorts, creating what will become the largest ski area in the United States. The plan to connect Canyons Resort with the newly acquired Park City Mountain Resort (PCMR) was announced shortly after Vail’s purchase of PCMR earlier this year, but just last week the company outlined the scope of this impressive project.
This season, PCMR joined Vail’s 11 other resorts in the company’s popular Epic Pass program, where users can visit all 12 resorts under one pass. Next season, PCMR will physically join neighboring Canyons Resort in Park City with the installation of an eight-passenger, two-way high-speed gondola. The resorts will come together to operate under the name Park City Mountain Resort. The project, which is scheduled to be completed for the 2015-2016 ski season, will give skiers access to 7,300 skiable acres and create the nation’s largest ski area.
The connection between Canyons and PCMR is perhaps the first step in a larger concept called One Wasatch, a vision that would connect seven resorts near Park City. If that vision is realized, it would make Park City the preeminent skiing destination in the United States, with more than 18,000 skiable acres connected by 100 lifts and available under a single pass.
While a trip to Park City is an amazing experience today, these planned changes will make Park City the ultimate ski experience in the United States.
