It is pretty easy to get from resort to resort, as long as you stay in the same canyon. Getting from canyon to canyon can be a lot more work. To get from Park City to Solitude, you hike up to the top of Scott's and then ski down the back side through the trees. This is the same area that we hiked last fall.
I think the Interconnect is all about the journey, and not about the destinations or the skiing. You spend a lot of time getting from place to place, and the scenery along the way is gorgeous. If you had a group of people more determined (and able) to do serious hiking, you could probably get more backcountry powder, but that just wasn't us. If you aren't in strong shape and an expert skier, I wouldn't consider trying this. You'll be miserable. But if you are capable, it's a great trip and the guides are fantastic!
- No snowboarders. They aren't allowed in Alta or Deer Valley.
- No kids under 16
- Hope you get a nice day. I can't imagine doing this in a storm or when it gets icy.
