During the 2016 northern hemisphere summer, Vail Resorts plan to link two of North America's greatest ski areas - Canyons and Park City, creating the largest resort in the United States with 7,300 acres of skiable terrain.
The plan will bring to fruition more than $50 million worth of resort improvements including The Interconnect Gondola - An eight-passenger, high-speed gondola running from the base of Silverlode Lift at Park City to Canyons’ Flatiron Lift. When conditions allow, gondola passengers will be able to unload at the top of Pine Cone Ridge and ski or ride directly down to Park City’s Thaynes Canyon trail. This gondola connection will create the single largest ski resort in the United States.
