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

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

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.

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