The Company will invest $52 million ($66 million CAD) at Whistler Blackcomb, the largest ski resort in North America, including the world’s first three-gondola inter-connect. The largest single investment in the resort’s history will include a new 10-passenger gondola, new six-passenger high-speed lift and new four-passenger high-speed lift. Throughout all seasons, guests will be provided with more comfortable and efficient access and on-mountain connections. The investment will also include an expansion of the resort’s world-renowned mountain bike park with the addition of 13 miles of new biking trails.
On the heels of $50 million in lift infrastructure and on-mountain dining improvements in 2015, Park City Mountain, the largest ski resort in the United States, will further its focus on premier family experiences, mountain dining excellence and guest service through a new learning area for beginners, children and families; a transformative interior renovation to the iconic Mid-Mountain Lodge; and an expansion of the popular, mountaintop bistro Cloud Dine with an additional 200 seats.
