What's New At Park City Resorts?

We are now in the heart of the ski season and improvements made at Utah ski resorts are helping to make this one of our best seasons ever. The Montreal Gazette has this article about improvement made at the three Park City resorts. Below are excerpts.

Park City is one of North America's most accessible ski towns, located 58 kilometres from Salt Lake City's international airport. Its three vast downhill areas, Deer Valley Resort, Park City Mountain Resort and The Canyons, are connected by frequent shuttle buses and all boast vertical drops of more than 915 metres, with a combined total of 426 trails, 58 lifts and terrain. Thanks to the dry air from Utah's Great Basin Desert, the state's ski areas have the lightest powder snow in the United States.

Utah's largest downhill area, The Canyons, has made significant updates for this season, including the installation of a new orange-bubbled, high-speed quad chairlift with heated seats, the first of its kind in North America...

A former Olympic venue and a top-rated family resort with lots of snowboarding terrain, Park City is expanding its night skiing and riding. Park City's Snowmamas are a specialized source of family vacation information (see www.snowmamas.com).

Another Olympic mountain, the posh Deer Valley Resort, has been rated the No. 1 area in the United States in the annual Ski Magazine Readers' Poll, for four consecutive years. Strong on impeccable snow grooming, attentive customer service, fine dining and upscale lodging, Deer Valley does not allow snowboarding and limits the number of skiers for safety and comfort.

Now marking its 30th season as the fancier next-door neighbour to Park City Mountain Resort, Deer Valley has updated its skiers' day lodges and opened the Deer Valley Grocery-Cafe for condo dwellers' convenience.
