POV Tour: Canyons Village to Park City Base Area

Over the summer Park City invested over $50 million into capital improvements like the Quick Silver Gondola, Miner’s Camp Restaurant, along with additional lift and snowmaking improvements. The most noticeable change is the Quick Silver gondola providing a connection between what was two separate ski resorts. Now under one moniker Canyons and Park City Mountain Resort are simply Park City. Skiers and snowboarders can now make their way from one base area to the other. Many of us have read the stats and have seen the new trail map. It begs the question, is it really possible to ski from one base area to the other and how long would that take? Last weekend the curiosity got the better of me and I started out on an adventure to find out.

My plan was not to just make it from one base area to the other but ski some of my favorite runs and document all the chairs that I took along the way. My Route was: Orange Bubble Express to Sun Peak Express, Sun Peak Express to Tombstone, Tombstone to Ninety-Nine 90 Express, Ninety-Nine 90 Express to Peak 5, Peak 5 to Dreamscape, Dreamscape to Iron Mountain, Iron Mountain to Quicksilver Gondola, Quick Silver Gondola to Silverlode Express, Silverlode Express to Motherlode Express, Motherlode Express to Thaynes, AND finally Thaynes to McConkey’s.

On the way back I took Pioneer to Quicksilver, Quicksilver to Timberline, Timberline to Tombstone Express, Tombstone Express to Saddleback Express, Saddleback Express to Short Cut, Short Cut to Orange Bubble Express for one final run. In total I skied 19,724 vertical feet and it took me about 3.5 hours to ski from the Sun Peak Express to McConkeys and back.
