Full review

Our annual ski trip to the Canyons was overall, again a good experience. The weather was less than favorable in the 2nd week of Feb 09. Snowed light nearly every day - 'bout 6 to 10 inches. We didn't have fat/powder skis so we struggled. On days that it snowed, we were in near white outs, clouds kept surfaces impossible to read - all flat and we had a record number of falls.
Recommend you buy tickets in SLC from places like Canyon Sports OR sign up to receive promos from the Canyons like the Pairs, two on the same day for $104 w/ lunch... a good deal for a limited time. YOu really have to be a local to enjoy the mountain when the conditions are better. Always ski in control. Best.
