Improvements Abound at Utah Ski Resorts

Utah ski resorts are making millions of dollars worth of improvements right now, as they prepare for the fast-approaching winter season. Firsttracksonline.com describes the upgrades in this article. Here are excerpts:

"Having just turned the corner towards winter, skiers and snowboarders are eagerly awaiting another Utah ski season. After Utah's fourth consecutive record-breaking year of skier visits, the state's 13 ski and snowboard resorts have been working hard all summer to improve the skiing experience they offer to visitors and locals alike."

"Alta is implementing a skier-friendly, web-friendly, hands-free ticketing system... The hands-free system means no more showing a pass at every lift."

"Brian Head... tucked away in the mountains of southeastern Utah above Cedar City, is undergoing a dramatic expansion. Their two separate mountains, Giant Steps and Navajo, will become interconnected with two new lifts and a skier bridge across the highway which will add nearly 35% more terrain."

"Brighton’s big news this year is the new Millicent High Speed Quad. The new ski lift will replace the Evergreen and Millicent chairlifts."

"The Canyons is glading out more of the new Dream Catcher area that opened up more than 200 acres of terrain last season. A hidden secret on the mountain last winter, this season it is bound to be discovered by more people in search of some of fine tree skiing."

"Deer Valley... A new high-speed detachable quad chairlift, Lady Morgan Express, will be built in the Empire Canyon area. The area will include over 200 new skiable acres, 65 acres of gladed skiing and eight new runs."

Many more improvements are described. Read the complete article.
