The first and only funicular at a North American ski resort was installed last weekend at the soon-to-open The St. Regis Deer Crest Resort located at Deer Valley Resort, Park City, Utah.
The funicular will be located at the base of the mountain at The St. Regis Deer Crest Resort's Snow Park Building and is adjacent to Deer Valley's Snow Park Lodge. It will be able to ascend over 230 vertical feet in just 90 seconds to the primary hotel building.
The funicular is a unique feature of The St. Regis Deer Crest Resort, a five-star branded luxury resort in Utah opening this fall at Deer Valley Resort.
The funicular cars are Swiss made by cable-car specialists Gangloff of Berne, the makers of the first funicular railway in 1929 and the former carriage maker to European royalty and the current designers of customized bodywork for the motoring aristocracy including Bugatti, Alfa Romeo and Rolls Royce.
The cars have panoramic windows, which are tinted and UVA and UVB-protected, and afford passengers spectacular views of Deer Valley. The cars are also heated and air-conditioned, have leather seating with space for up to 15 passengers and have a separate area for luggage.
Unlike any other funicular in the United States the two cabs of The St. Regis Deer Crest Resort funicular will function independently so that demand can be met both at the base and top terminals.
The funicular cabins, which are self-leveling despite a 20 to 80 degree difference in the slope angle, will run on steel railway tracks. The tracks were designed and constructed by Doppelmayr CTEC.
The funicular puts The St. Regis Deer Crest Resort in the same company with other world-class ski resorts. Travel on the funicular, which is free of charge, serves as a convenient way for hotel and non hotel guests to explore The St. Regis Deer Crest Resort's amenities, including the J&G Grill, a wine bar, a 14,000 square foot spa, 3,300 square foot fitness facility, infinity edge pool, ski beach overlooking Deer Hollow ski run and an out door heated stone terrace with a 40-foot firewall.
