“Not a single bad place to stay or eat...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Some really great little restaurants, upscale and mid scale with very nice mountain type menu's. Nestled in the heart of a resort ski area, the lodges offered by Waldorf Astoria, Hyatt, Hilton and a few other private brands are all first class. New golf course under construction. Shuttles or car to downtown is only 5 minutes, same with going to the very nice outlet mall on I-80. The Canyons and Park City area is a great place for a summer off-peak rest and relax - to get away from the hot and humid summer.

“Awesome Slopes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Skiing at the canyons was some of the best skiing I have ever had the snow was perfect powder and there were so many fun, exciting and challenging runs that I never knew what I wanted to do next. I loved going through the natural half pipes and finding new places to ski on slopes or just through the woods. We went a couple of week after Christmas and it was not packed at all! I almost never waited in a lift line and always had a more than satisfying run. I will definitely go back again if I ever get the chance.

“Challenging runs & beautiful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Once you have got over the extortionate price (expect to pay north of $120 for a day ticket, a bit less if you buy it at a sports shop in SLC), you will enjoy a very extensive ski area (with some rather long diagonal lift transfers, though), good to excellent food right on the runs, and your money’s worth of highly challenging double blacks – don’t be deceived by the location looking rather like a few hills than like a proper mountain! Additional extras include a chair that will keep your bottom toasty (not a basic need of mine) and a peek at the living style of the filthy rich while your chair crosses the mountainside development of castle-like chalets (supposedly eco-friendly – one may wonder at this one) which dot the forest. The overall location is beautiful, and the runs cut through the forest in a picturesque, pleasant way. In addition, you get excellent sunlight all day long (unlike at Snowbird).

All in all, the second best resort resort for expert skiing (after Snowbird) around SLC, and a definitely civilized experience.

“Canyons resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Have been coming here winter and summer for 30 years. It is now a world class resort and with Vail now managing it this will only become better. The mountain is great both for skiing and for summer hiking and adventure. Hopefully the proposed golf course will be ready next year.
