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.

The Canyons' New Bubble Lift
A revolution in lift technology, aimed at blocking out the elements, has just arrived in Park City, Utah. Your ride to the peak will never be the same.

The Canyons Resort is pioneering one of the biggest innovations in skier comfort since Gore Tex, a heated capsule that completely shields riders from the elements. The orange, Plexiglas bubble wraps up, from the footrests, over the safety bar, then behind the back of the bench.

Without the nuisance of piercing winds, it’s possible to enjoy the heated seat that charges for 7-seconds as it rounds the base of the terminal and reaches a temperature of about 55 degrees.

Free Concerts

Of course, you go to a ski resort for the good snow and terrain. But you've got to eat while you're there, right?

To call this place a cafeteria doesn't do it justice. At the Red Pine Lodge, located at the top of the gondola at mid-mountain at The Canyons, in Park City, Utah, you can get gourmet pizzas, grilled-to-order burgers, and your choice of meats from a carving station.
