“The Panoramic Express, with its unmatched view, and the addition of two new intermediate trails, not only provides guests with quicker access to the top of Mary Jane’s Parsenn Bowl, but also provides more elbow room to play once they’re there,” said Gary DeFrange, president & chief operating officer for Winter Park Resort. “Mary Jane has developed a loyal following of passionate regulars that will welcome these changes whereas first time visitors will fall in love with Winter Park in no time at all. We have retained the spirit of Winter Park Resort with a fresh outlook.”
Extending from the bottom of Mary Jane’s Edelweiss trail to the top of Parsenn Bowl at 12,060 feet above sea level, the Panoramic Express provides skiers and riders access to over 1,123 acres of terrain including Parsenn Bowl, Vasquez Cirque and last year’s addition of the Eagle Wind terrain. The Panoramic Express will quicken guests ride to the top from the original 11 minutes it once took guests to get there to seven minutes.
The newly enhanced intermediate terrain features better tree skiing, while Parry’s Peek and Forever Eva offer groomed conditions for guests needing a little extra help getting down Mary Jane’s infamously steep terrain. Parry’s Peek and Forever Eva were named after a well known area botanist, Charles Parry and his wife, Eva. Both trails provide spectacular views of Parry’s Peak and Mount Eva, two significant mountain peaks along the Continental Divide.
“Lost and Found” is the story of the extraordinary season of 2007 as seen through the eyes of world-class skiers and snowboarders. With global drought persisting and ski resorts closing around the world, athletes are forced to follow the snow, sending them deep into the uncharted north country of Alaska and Canada. Filmed almost entirely in North America, “Lost and Found” is a testament to the terrain and conditions that only exist in the Western Hemisphere. This film will take you into the vast, unexplored Tordrillo Mountains of Alaska, proving that some of the best big mountain riding in the world is still completely undiscovered. Athletes take advantage of the bountiful winter in British Columbia, hit disturbing park features in Aspen and score over-the-head powder pillows at Skeena Heliskiing. The winter of 2007 was feast or famine; “Lost and Found” documents the feast. LOCATIONS: Tordrillo Mountains AK, Skeena Heliskiing BC, Jackson Hole, Utah, Montana, Aspen, Pemberton BC, Kicking Horse BC, Austria and Switzerland.
TGR’s “Lost and Found” features the world’s finest skiers and snowboarders including Squaw Valley’s Jeremy Jones and Erik Roner, and Sage Cattabriga–Alosa, Seth Morrison, Jeremy Nobis, and many more. . .
