It's been tough keeping the big news to ourselves but we have finally been given the green light to announce a few thrilling improvements for the 2010/2011 season at Park City Mountain Resort. We are significantly expanding our snowmaking and increasing both the night skiing/riding terrain and hours. You will now be able to ski or ride until 9pm with PayDay, Three Kings and First Time lifts in operation.
Night skiing/riding began at Park City Mountain Resort on PayDay in the 67/68 season, a fact I find quite impressive. In the 10/11 season night skiing is going to be incredible! We are replacing the old 1500 watt quartz lights on PayDay with 150 watt metal halide lights. This will give us a more even light across the run while expending less energy. You will also be able to ride under the lights in the Pick ‘N Shovel terrain park as well as Three Kings Run and Quicksilver! Overall the added lights will increase our night skiing/riding terrain by 23%.
In addition to having night skiing/riding for the first time, we will also add snowmaking to both Three Kings Run and Quicksilver Run. Seven fully automated fan guns and six low energy tower guns will be installed on these runs.
Our park rats can look forward to a new park in place of Pick N’ Shovel that will be OVER DOUBLE the size. You can expect new jib lines in the expanded areas and brand new features to launch progression.
Stay tuned for more announcements on the 2010/2011 season improvements!
