Hot Buns at Canyons Ski Resort

First Heated Chairlift in the US hits Park City, Utah at Canyons, a Talisker resort.

Heated Chairlift at Canyons Resort

On those windy subzero days, the long trek up the mountain on the chairlift can be a grueling bone-chilling experience, but no more at the Canyons in Park City, Utah.   The Talisker resort now boasts a state-of-the-art revolutionary quad lift—a marvel of technology and the first of its kind in North America.  Skiers now can relax on heated seats and enclosed in an orange weather-protecting, glare-cutting cover. This bubble “evokes the feeling of being inside a pair of ski goggles,” explains general manager Mike Goar.  In addition to the snuggly encapsulated feeling, the trip to the top of the mountain will take a mere nine minutes—just enough time to get those buns nice and toasty.

We laud Canyons for being ahead of the curve and bringing a little added luxury to the mountain!

Canyons, a Talisker mountain destination, offers 4,000 acres of exceptional skiing and snowboarding terrain, 176 trails and  five world-class lodging properties.  Salt Lake City International Airport is just 35 minutes away. Check out their new blog.

    I’m heading to The Canyons before January ends and the heated chairlifts would be a great welcome for me. According to a review all lifts in The Canyons serve at least one intermediate or beginner run so there is no warning which has to be issued about any of the lifts nor will you be trapped at the top in a state of panic:http://www.mountainyahoos.com/SkiResorts/TheCanyons-UT.html

    I guess the administrator are very conscious about safety and that something to take note about the amazing ski resort.
