Nothing gets locals in a resort town more excited than the countdown to opening day at the local ski resorts. Except maybe when that countdown includes snow in the forecast! There is already a dusting of snow on top of the Wasatch Mountains here in Park City, the resorts have started making snow and even better, there is a chance of accumulating snow in our forecast this week.
This summer, Vail Resorts officially announced that they were merging Canyons Resort and Park City Mountain Resort into one entity to create the largest ski and snowboard area in the nation, simply called: Park City. Vail acquired management of Canyons Resort in 2013 and purchased Park City Mountain Resort in 2014 giving them this unique opportunity. The newly combined resort will have 7,300 skiable acres.
To accomplish this merger, Vail is investing $50 million dollars in capital improvements, including building “Quicksilver,” a new 8 passenger gondola that will connect the two properties. Vail just announced that this new lift, plus additional improvements like a new restaurant (Miners Camp), renovations to two other restaurants (Summit House and Red Pine), upgrades to two popular lifts (Motherlode and King-Con) and trail improvements, should be completed in time for the 2015 holiday season (Christmas week). Park City is set to open November 21 (the Saturday before Thanksgiving).
The merger has heightened interest in Park City timeshare properties. These properties include many of our best sellers like Marriott’s Summit Watch and MountainSide resorts, plus Westgate Park City Resort & Spa and The Lift Lodge (formerly Sweetwater). Other great timeshare options in Park City include: Park Plaza, Hilton Grand Vacations Club at Sunrise Lodge, Skiers Lodge, Park Hotel Condominiums, Park Regency and a new Wyndham Resort (a ski-in, ski-out resort located on the former Canyons Resort side of Park City).
