The Quicksilver Gondola links Park City and the Canyons to create the single biggest ski area in the USA.

The two resorts are now known simply as Park City and it overtakes Vail to become the biggest ski area in the USA.

It has more than 300 trails, 41 lifts and 7,300 acres of skiable terrain.

"On this historic day for our company, the debut of the Quicksilver Gondola connecting the two mountains and Miners Camp restaurant brings to life one of the most ambitious capital projects undertaken at any resort in industry history," said Rob Katz, chairman and CEO of Vail Resorts.

We have reported on it in the past here on PlanetSKI and the story contains all the details of the project.

"Park City is one of the most spectacular places on Earth and now, for the first time ever, our guests will have unprecedented access to over 300 trails, 41 lifts and 7,300 acres of skiable terrain across one Park City," said Bill Rock, chief operating officer of Park City.
