25 Top Spots: #18 The Canyons, UT

25 Top Spots: #18 The Canyons, UT

Labyrinthine is the word that best describes the constellation of valleys and ridges that make up The Canyons; lost is the word that best describes the plight of first-time visitors who don't take the size and diversity of this place seriously. Although The Canyons claims more intermediate fare than other Utah resorts, the terrain here also hides north-facing tree runs as precipitous as they come. And the gates lead to the best backcountry terrain in the county.

The Vitals

Top elevation: 9,990 feet
Vertical drop: 3,190 feet
Snowfall: 290 inches (est.)
Skiable Acres: 3,500
Phone: 435-649-5400
Web: thecanyons.com

Adrenaline:
From Ninety Nine 90, hike to skier's right for big bowl and glade skiing that cycles you back to the lift.

Accumulation:
The resort is lower than Park City, but snow can pile up in the upper reaches. When it does, it's "The Greatest Snow on Earth," as advertised.

Après:
There's live entertainment in the village amphitheater-everything from music to magic to circus acts.
