The 2015-16 season is big in Utah. Over $100 million in on-mountain capital improvements are set to debut across the state.
Vail Resorts is in the midst of a $50 million dollar
capital program that will connect Park City Mountain Resort
and Canyons Resort, creating Park City – the largest resort
in the United States.
Boasting 7,300 skiable acres, Park
City will be completed
before the start of the 2015-16 season.
$35 million in capital improvements will crown Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort with a new mountain top facility named Summit Lodge, scheduled to be completed by late fall. Guests can look forward to a new building with spectacular, 360-degree eagle eye views from 11,000 feet. The two-story glass-enclosed structure will replace the Ski Patrol and warming hut that has greeted Snowbird Aerial Tram riders for more than 40 years.
As of May
1, 2015, Deer
Valley Resort officially took ownership of Solitude Mountain Resort and began running operations on site. Deer Valley
Resort announced a list of capital improvements, including the new high-speed
quad Summit Express chairlift.
In addition, Solitude Mountain Resort has recently launched a new website at skisolitude.com.
