Massive New Ski Resort Planned Right Next to Deer Valley

The new resort will be directly adjacent to Deer Valley Resort. Extell Development Company photo.

While it's hard to argue that the Salt Lake City-Park City area is lacking in ski resorts, there's always room for more. At least that's what the developers of Mayflower Mountain Resort seem to think, and they're not alone. The resort is being developed by Extell Development Company, one of New York City's preeminent real estate development companies, with support from Utah’s Military Installation Development Authority. We're not gamblers, but if we were we certainly wouldn't bet against a project backed by an entity with "Military Installation" in its name.

According to the Deseret News, the resort is expected to occupy 5,600 acres, and offer 1,520 residential units, 825 hotel rooms, commercial space, and 600 skier parking spaces. While it's hard to put a hard-and-fast completion date on a project of this caliber, the developers are hoping to have the village and some ski runs open within the next five years.

Panorama Resort to Offer Canada’s Cheapest Cat-Skiing

It might not be the biggest snowcat, but it sure does look snazzy. Panorama photo. Panorama Mountain Resort, located in southeastern British Columbia, nearly has more double-black trails than greens, blues, and blacks put together. As such, it should come as no surprise that they are also planning on operating an inbounds snowcat called "Monster X" to access far-flung, though fully avalanche-controlled zones in Taynton Bowl, located in the northern, AKA upper-left portion of the mountain.
