The Quicksilver 8-passenger gondola lift opened in December connects the two existing ski destinations Canyons Resort in Park City and Park City Mountain Resort. This has created the biggest ski resort in the United States. Skiers and snowboarders now have a fast and comfortable means of traveling from one ski resort to the other, giving them even more possibilities to expand their snow experience.
The special feature of the Quicksilver lift is the angled mid station. Three bullwheels were required to achieve this alignment. In addition, the track width widens from 5.2 meters to 6.1 meters.
As well as taking care of the lift planning and installation, Doppelmayr was also responsible for on-site personnel training. Collaboration between Vail Resorts and Doppelmayr stretches back to the 1980s.
