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


Quicksilver Gondola South Mid Station

      Blaise's Way to 



      Snowwonder to Golden Spruce to White Pine to Cascade to

All in all, I covered 40 lifts and 40,558 vertical feet. The sky was clear, the temp was around 40, what a great day!
