It's not that the Canyons is terrible. It's that there are two better resorts up the road and several much better resorts a canyon or two over. All have better elevations and better snow quality; especially in spring when many runs at the Canyons never thaw and corn-up due to lack of sun exposure and become nice sheets of ice.
The place is also a nightmare to navigate be it the hike to the gondola or the endless miles of cat-tracks needed to get around the place.
That being said there are some nice areas of the resort. The Dreamscape area is a blast. It's usually fairly uncrowded and has a good mix of runs. The other is 99-90; a true joy to ski with fresh snow (I'd avoid w/out fresh snow if in a freeze-thaw cycle).
