Business briefs for Saturday, Sept. 2

Utah’s first Alpine Coaster made its debut on Aug. 28 at Park City Mountain Resort. Combining the amusement park with the beautiful mountain scenery, the Alpine Coaster allows the rider(s), in one or two person toboggans, to control their own speed, creating a custom ride.

The Alpine Coaster transports riders to the top via a tubular rail system. Once there, the toboggans release, gravity takes over, and the riders are transported downhill through a series of bends, curves and bumps. The Alpine Coaster track passes over the Resort Skiway, on a bridge, suspended 20 feet above the ground. This unique, double-decker bridge is more than 240 feet and acts much like the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge where the downhill traffic is above the uphill. The total track length is nearly 6,000 feet.

The Alpine Coaster will continue daily operations through Oct. 15, weather and conditions permitting. The cost is $15 per ride. Guests can also purchase an Alpine Slide/Alpine Coaster pass (one ride each) for $20.

White Pine receives accreditation

White Pine Veterinary Clinic of Park City has again received accreditation following a comprehensive evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association. The evaluation includes a quality assessment review of the hospital’s facility, medical equipment, practice methods and pet health care management.

Only 12 percent of all small animal veterinary practices in the U.S. have achieved accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association. In order to maintain accredited status, White Pine Veterinary Clinic must continue to be evaluated regularly by the association’s trained consultants.
