Deer Valley Announces Major Expansion Plans

Deer Valley Resort hoping to connect to Old Town

Options Include Two Connected Gondolas Or One Gondola To Reduce Traffic

In a meeting with the Park City Council, Bob Wheaton, the President and General Manager of Deer Valley Resort, shared Deer Valley's plan to dramatically increase their ski terrain with eight new lifts, which will serve approximately 1,000 acres of new runs. Wheaton also discussed the Berkshire Hathaway Utah Properties listed development at Mayflower (above the Jordanelle) and expanded residential communities in and around the resort. Most exciting, Wheaton confirmed that Deer Valley intends to try to connect the resort directly to Old Town via a Gondola System.

There are two options, the first option involves two connected gondolas; the second option would involve a single gondola running between Silver Lake Village and Old Town. In addition to providing visitors and locals easy access to the resort, city council members believe this plan will help reduce Park City's traffic. 
Wheaton relayed that these expansion plans could begin as early as next summer, but that cost (particularly with regards to the gondola) was an issue, and the resort would be cautious. There are also proposed improvements to the parking lots at Snow Park. 

For additional information, see the Park Record's coverage on this meeting.

All in all, it is safe to say that Park City's resorts are entering into a phase of serious growth and evolution. We look forward to seeing what the future holds and continuing to represent the real estate interests of those who share our affinity for our mountain town paradise.
