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.

Spring Gruv 2
Spring Break—alpine style.

If you’d rather spend your Spring Break skiing than sunning yourself on a beach with a bunch of boozey college students, you’re not alone.

Enjoying the famous Utah powder at Park City Mountain Resort
Or so say a number of folks hitting the resort town during the Sundance Film Festival. Turns out most people go to Sundance for the movies, not the skiing. More slope for us, then.

During Sundance -- the big-cheese film festival held every January in Park City, Utah -- the little town's hotel rooms are booked full, and its streets and theaters are claustrophobic with Hollywood crowds. But the ski hills at its in-town resorts -- Park City Mountain Resort and The Canyons -- are almost empty.

Kids have all the fun—and get all the deals, too. The trend of free or steeply discounted grade-school lift-ticket programs—created to encourage children age 10 and up to try the sport—gains traction each season. This year, there are upward of 10 states offering discounts to kids in grades four through seven. Even better: You needn’t be a state resident. Start with these five.

Sure, Utah's 13 resorts are known for their unbelievable snow. But the drinking scene has remained, well, questionable. Not anymore: Utah's changed their liquor laws. And that's only one of many improvements the state boasts for the 2009-10 ski season.
