Park City ski resort getting $7 million face-lift

Venerable Three Kings chairlift is being replaced this summer as part of a $7 million infrastructure investment being made by Park City Mountain Resort. Besides that work, PCMR is modifying the foundation of the 22-foot Eagle Superpipe to allow it to open earlier in the season. The resort also is installing two conveyor lifts to ease movement around a new learners’ area at the base. The resort also is purchasing additional snowmaking and grooming equipment, installing access gates at its seven base lifts and putting in a zip line that will start and finish in the base area, permitting yearlong use.
