SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Vail Resorts Inc. says it has received approval from Park City planning officials to build a high-speed gondola that would connect two ski resorts it owns in Utah.

The company said in a news release Thursday that the linking lift will join Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons Resort to make it the largest ski area in the United States.

Vail announced plans for the connecting lift in December as part of $50 million in investments at the two resorts. Vail purchased Park City Mountain Resort in September for $182.5 million.

Other plans include major upgrades of two lifts, new and improved restaurants and better snowmaking.

The projects are expected to be ready by the 2015-2016 ski season.
