States, New Gondola Portal to Ski Village, New State-of-the-Art Quad Lift,
New Terrain and Enhanced Snowmaking
Park City, Utah – In anticipation of the upcoming ski season, Canyons, a Talisker mountain

direct-connect gondola, expanded terrain and vastly improved snowmaking capabilities.
This is the very first phase of the re-creation of Canyons. Anticipate several future
significant announcements including dramatic food and beverage news.
Orange Bubbled, State-of-the-Art Lift – First of its Kind in North America
Just outside the Grand Summit Hotel, the new lift is a marvel of engineering and will be
the first of its kind in North America. One of the most technologically advanced chairlifts
in the world, the bubble enclosed, quad lift offers unmatched visibility, safety, and design
and includes sophisticated comforts such as heated seats. The weather protecting orange
bubble will evoke the feeling of being inside a pair of ski goggles as it transfers guests from
the steps of the Grand Summit Hotel to the mid-mountain Lookout Peak before continuing
uphill to an ending point just south of the current Sun Peak lift. The new lift will be a
visually stunning addition to Canyons and will increase the uphill capacity from basemountain
by a staggering 47%. Most importantly, the new lift will allow skiers to get to
the very top of the mountain in just nine minutes – a far more timely, simple and elegant
fashion than ever before.
New Direct Gondola Connection from the Center of Canyons Village – First Phase of Village
A new gondola portal has been created, located immediately across the village center from
the Cabriolet Lift, it will create a direct-connect gondola that transports guests from the
center of the village to the Red Pine Lodge. This will provide a far more simple and fluid
process for transporting guests onto and off of the mountain. In addition, the gondola
cabins will be upgraded.
300 Acres of New Skiable Terrain / Iron Mountain Lift
Utah’s largest resort is getting even larger and more exciting. The southern-most part
of Canyons will see the construction of another new detachable quad lift, which will
provide guests with access to an additional 300 acres of northwestern facing skiing and
snowboarding terrain. Ten runs, ranging from intermediate to expert to gladed tree skiing
will bring the total number of runs to an impressive 176. Timberline Lift will allow guests
to ride in either direction and provide easy access to the south side of Canyons. This will
allow guests to move around the mountain more easily.
New Snowmaking Enhancements
In addition to Canyons’ almost 400 natural inches of some of the best snow on earth and
existing snowmaking capabilities, Canyons is constructing a 20 million gallon reservoir to
ensure a consistent skiing and riding surface particularly in the early and late stages of the
season. The reservoir and additional infrastructure investments will more than double The
Canyons already significant snow making capabilities.
Canyons Ski Beach
The Ski Beach, located between the base terminal of the new direct-connect gondola
and the new high speed, state-of-the-art quad lift, will become a gathering place for the
beginning and end of the day. Along with Talisker’s award winning culinary team, Canyons
will provide guests the ability to enjoy everything from breakfast to an après ski cocktail in
a truly beautiful and breathtaking setting viewing up the mountainside. The Ski Beach will
also prove to be a wonderful setting for concerts and other cultural events year round.
