Most people never ski more than one mountain in a day, so imagine the reaction of your friends when you tell them you've skied six without so much as removing a ski!
How is this possible? The Salt Lake City/Park City ski region boasts 11 resorts within an hour drive of the airport, some literally side-by-side and others backing up to each other in connecting canyons. The Interconnect Tour looks to accomplish two things: 1) Show off the close proximity of the resorts, and 2) Provide a safe, guided opportunity for skiers to rip through the backcountry.
And what a journey it was. According to our iPhone app, we skied 15 miles and 11,302 vertical feet over the course of the six and a half hour tour last February, including about 45 minutes of hiking throughout the day to access more advanced terrain (which is dependent upon your group).
This is a great experience for both locals and tourists, not only because of the novelty of the idea (you're skiing six resorts in a day for Christ's sake!), but for the chance to duck under the boundary lines without getting beat down by ski patrol.
You can read more details about the tour here. Price is $295/person and includes lunch, transportation, lift tickets and backcountry beacon. The routes can change depending on conditions, but most tours hit Deer Valley, PCMR, Solitude, Brighton, Alta, and Snowbird.
Get juiced for winter... it's right around the corner!
