Proposed

SUNRISE GONDOLA PROJECT

Frequently Asked Questions

We’re exploring opportunities to improve flow and circulation in Canyons Village by providing a third option to complement Red Pine Gondola and Orange Bubble Express for access to the Red Pine area. The project is subject to approvals, including permitting by Summit County, and would replace the existing Sunrise chairlift with a 10-passenger gondola that connects to our year-round mid-mountain hub.
Replacing the Sunrise chairlift with a gondola would help improve the guest experience and reduce wait times out of the Canyons Village base area.

We anticipate that the new alignment of Sunrise Gondola would be less susceptible to wind, significantly reducing weather-related holds and closures in the Canyons Village base area. The Sunrise Gondola would have:

  • An alignment that is sheltered from the north
  • A profile that more closely follows terrain contour rather than crossing wide spans at height
  • Stability from heavier cabin weight
 
This multi-year project is in the early stages of planning and subject to approvals, including permitting by Summit County. Park City Mountain is meeting with local government staff, community leaders, and residents to ensure the project’s application complies with applicable requirements and improves the guest experience for all guests, including locals.
SUNRISE GONDOLA WOULD TERMINATE AT THE RED PINE AREA, OUR YEAR-ROUND MID-MOUNTAIN HUB, PROVIDING A THIRD LIFT OPTION TO COMPLEMENT RED PINE GONDOLA AND ORANGE BUBBLE EXPRESS FOR UPPER MOUNTAIN ACCESS.
This multi-year project is subject to approvals, including permitting by Summit County.
