Brief: St. Regis funicular to be installed today
July 17, 2009
The first and only funicular at a North American ski resort will be installed at 8 a.m. this Saturday near the Deer Valley Resort parking lot. The funicular cabins have been flown in from Switzerland and will be installed with the use of a 500-ton crane onto the tracks.
The funicular will ascend 500 vertical feet in just 90 seconds to the primary hotel building.
