I know we’re all dreaming of the slopes and yummy apres ski cocktails, and if you don’t already have your winter getaway planned, well, we have some fodder for your ski vacation dreams! News just broke that Vail Resorts, which purchased Park City Mountain Resort for $182 million back in September, is planning more than $50 million in upgrades to this mountain destination.

It’s all part of Vail Resorts’ ambitious capital plan to transform the guest experience at Park City, connecting the resort to the Canyons, and thereby creating more than 7,300 skiable acres. Infrastructure upgrades will be tremendous, and the impact will be felt throughout the valley. Vail Resorts is known for great skiing, and we can’t wait to see what they do!
