The 2011-2012 season kicked off Saturday, November 19 at Park City Mountain Resort as the first chairs departed PayDay, First Time and 3 Kings lifts this morning. Among others joining the opening day festivities Ted Ligety, Tanner Hall, Torah Bright, Tom Wallisch where present to join in on the celebration.
Six inches of Utah powder fell Friday night, making an already festive day even more exciting. Making for one of the Resort’s biggest Opening Days in years, three lifts, eight runs, 20 terrain park features and one jump were all available on the first day of the season.
Tanner Hall commented on the 20 features and jump available on Opening Day: “It shows they’re on the cutting edge of wanting to be the top resort. And that’s exactly what Park City is.”
Lift lines were populated well in advance, with the earliest guests staking their spots at 3 Kings lift 22 hours before lifts started running. Olympic gold medalist and Park City native, Ted Ligety had his spot in line when PayDay lift began running and PC All Stars Tanner Hall, Tom Wallisch, Sage Kotsenburg, Joss Christensen, Aaron Bittner, Erin Comstock and Torah Bright were also on the snow for a successful season kick-off at Park City Mountain Resort.
