I have heard of the Interconnect Tour that is put on by Ski Utah for the last several years and finally got a chance to check out this truly unique skiing experience this past Sunday. Our group was lucky enough to score some amazing weather and snow as we made our way from Deer Valley to Snowbird via Park City Mountain Resort, Solitude and Alta. We were forced to skip Brighton due to the rising wet slide danger in the afternoon.
The views from the chairlifts and ridgelines were exceptional all day. You get a whole different perspective on just how close Utah ski resorts really are by taking the short traverses and side steps that it takes to travel from one to another. Our guides Chris and Calvin were top notch in their knowledge of the terrain and how to navigate it safely. If you are a local considering the Interconnect Tour I would suggest doing it sometime with a friend or family member who is visiting to give them a great adventure that they will never forget.
I would suggest doing the full 6 resort tour. Ski Utah also offer a 4 resort tour that hits the Cottonwood Canyon Resorts. I think the best skiing was located between Park City Mountain Resort and Solitude, which you miss out on with the 4 resort tour. Weather can play a big factor in how much skiing you get to do between the resorts, so be flexible and roll with the punches if you run into a storm day. The guides will do their best to make sure you still have a good time and a great adventure. The Interconnect Tour is recommended for people who are advanced intermediate level skiers in fairly good cardio condition or better. It might be a little rough if you are coming straight from sea level, so train a bit if you know you are going to try it out. Get more info on Ski Utah website.
