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.

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.

Dakota Mountain Lodge

And with a location so key—ski-in/ski-out via the new Frostwood Gondola—Dakota guests will want for little.
