Passing the final hurdle, Vail Resorts was granted approval by City Hall to establish a gondola, which when completed, will connect Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons Resort. The result will be the largest ski area in the United States.
The City Hall vote was in unanimous support of Vail’s delivered proposal. In addition to the gondola, Vail’s other 50 million dollars of proposed improvements were green lighted by the city. While the gondola is the most critical infrastructure aspect necessary to complete the combined resort, Vail listed several very necessary improvements that will improve skier experience. On-mountain dining, lodging, and other aspects were named as significant priorities.
The gondola will carry eight-passengers and covers nearly 1.5 miles, and terminates right in the middle of The Colony, one of our exclusive development listings. This new super resort will allow skiers to explore most of the length of the Park City ridgeline.
Vail has brought a lot of excitement to our town and the ski industry in general this last year. It’s a perfect moment for existing residents and interested buyers to discuss the implications of Vail’s thunderous arrival and bold plans on the real estate market. BHHS Utah looks forward to helping the town manage the growth that will surely result—we feel strongly in both preserving the character of Park City and contributing to its evolution.
