Was This The Most Unique Ski Lift Ever? Park City's "Skier's Subway"

By

Park City, Utah might of had the most unique (and unpractical) ski lift EVER.

This article posted in the New York Times on December 13, 1964 shares details of Park City’s “Skier’s Subway” used to transport skiers through old mining shafts.

Check out this incredible footage and first-hand depictions of the Skier’s Subway.

I know skiers will get creative for turns, but this is taking it to the next level.

The Skier’s Subway didn’t last long, and closed in 1969. The entire journey ended up taking close to an hour, if everything worked properly…

The Park City Museum claims that most skiers treated the subway as a novelty and returned to more traditional lifts after one ride.
