Full review

The Canyons is one of the largest resorts in the country and the largest ski and snowboard area in Utah. They continue their on-mountain terrain domination this season with $10 million in improvements that include an additional 200+ acres accessed by the new the Dreamcatcher quad, bringing the resort’s total acreage to 3700. The four-passenger Dreamscape Lift accesses primarily intermediate terrain of open glades while the now 'six-pack' high-speed Tombstone lift carries skiers of all levels to a variety of terrain.The place attracts the majority of snowboarders in Park City so wear a helmet. Plan to get to the Canyons a little early, the line-up at the gondola gets HUGE by 9:30 a.m. You’ll have to park near the 7-11 and ride the “Cabriolet,” to the resort. The open-roof people mover carries eight people on a three-minute ride from the Lower Village’s parking areas to the resort’s center, near the gondola. Make you sure to reserve a seat for lunch at the Lookout Cabin. It beats lunch at Red Pine any old day, Bring your avalanche beacon and test your search and rescue skills at The Canyons' beacon park.
