Full review

Stayed at the Canyons (Westgate) from 2/9 to 2/15 with the family and had a great time. This whole area - Park City and Cottonwood - has world class snow and resorts, including the Canyons. The Canyons is gigantic and would take days to hit it all. Lots of variety for skiers and snowboarders. Terrain park not as difficult as Park City, but for us that was probably a good thing. I ski - the kids are boarders, but I got them into black / double diamond trees and bumps which they would never see back in NJ. Suggest starting at Dreamcatcher/Dreamscape side in AM and work your way back to SuperCondor side in the afternoon. Lots of soft snow there but only snowed about 6 inches while there - still great conditions. Also staying at the bottom of the mountain with valet service makes it fun and easy. Westgate was great place to stay. Indoor/outdoor pool, hot tubs/ saunas helped make the vacation more relaxing. And of course going into Park City at night for some great food (Chimayo/RiverHorse/ Wahsu/Ruth Chris) made the wife happier. Most important of all when in this area on vacation - bring lots of $$$ especially if your paying for a party of 6-8 people everyday. FYI - we did 3 days at the Canyons and 3 at Park City.
