Park City in a Day.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Is it possible to ride all of the lifts at the new behemoth of the Park City Mountain Resort in a day?  Why yes, yes it is.  Until today that was just a theory for me, but I set out to make it happen and had no problem.  In case anyone is interested:

 

I started on the Canyons Village side.  I was mildly concerned about making the 3:30 Quicksilver Gondola loading deadline for returning back to the Canyons side, but found it was no problem.  To ski all of the lifts there were  35, totaling 32,258 vertical feet.  I repeated some at the end of the day getting back to Canyons Village, resulting in an over 40,000 ft day.  Was it a slog? Mindless, mundane skiing just to claim the feat?  No!  It was awesome!  It was a great sampling of everything the largest resort in the US has to offer, and I'll gladly do it again.  So here's what I did:

 

On the Waldorf Gondola at 9:00.  On the Orange bubble at 9:05.

King Con Express....It is here that I finished riding every substantial lift.  33 of them.  But it was only about 3pm.  I had plenty of time to get back to the Canyons side.  So I decided to ride the "worthless" utterly flat lifts back at Canyons just so I could claim to have ridden every mapped ski lift at the resort.  So Back to canyons side for Flatiron and Timberline.  I finished out the day by riding King Con Express, then King Con to
