Canyons Resort

+Immense resort that's quickly adding amenities.

- Can be overwheming. Best for cruisers.

Utah's largest ski area and the United States’ third-largest somehow remains a mystery to many. Yet this 4,000-acre “hidden gem” stands in easy reach and plain sight, sprawling across nine mountaintops just north of Park City. Well funded and smartly buffed with $50 million in upgrades to date by luxury developer Talisker Corp., this master-planned resort delivers wide-open cruising, slopeside lodgings, swift lifts and delicious eats. Add easy access to all Salt Lake skiing, enough off-hill diversions to keep you fully engaged and coordinates that put the good times of downtown Park City and hip Kimball Junction a short drive away, and smart ski travelers won’t be saying “Where?” for long. Says a forward-looking reader: “Watch out, Deer Valley!” —S.R.

Après Spot » Build a cocoa creation at Chocolate Bar, located at the new Ski Beach, then kick back in a lounge chair while a band plays. Family Activity » Tenpin it at Kimball Junction’s Jupiter Bowl, with glowing bowling balls, live music and lane-side dining.

On-Hill Lunch » Reserve ahead at Lookout Cabin to savor poblano and goat-cheese rellenos, decadent Alpine Mac ’n’ Cheese and Kobe burgers—all with Wasatch views.

A Rookie Gets Hooked on Mountain Biking

Park City’s 400-plus miles made it an easy sell.

I rode around the parking lot of White Pine Touring on a $6,000 Specialized mountain bike called “Epic Expert Carbon.” But on that sunny summer morning in Park City, Utah, the problem was that I was no “expert.”

I was about to embark on the longest, most epic bike ride of my life, led by Scott House, the communications director for White Pine Touring, and other guides—all tanned mountain men with chiseled calves. Earlier, House’d reassured me that the group would be broken out by ability levels, that a guide would stick with me.
