“Summer adventure was excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We booked the adventure package which included the zip line, gondola and several other activities. The staff was very friendly and fun. Zip line was awesome and the hiking trails are beautiful.

“Love this place but.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Except for the incessant construction. It got so dusty I felt like a sinus infection was coming on. They need to have a dust abatement program on days without rain it is awful.

“top notch new ski area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

While it is still under development, this is an interesting area for a side trip. New resorts and the likely addition of a Vail managed ski operation(s) are making the Canyons a new 'hot spot' at the edge of Park City. Several new resorts by major players have already opened with more to come. The new facilities are in keeping with the area but the wildness of the Canyons is being invaded by new construction. Many more new shops and commercial venues are sure to follow.

“Gorgeous, good for beginners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

The resort itself is flawless. I am a total beginner with skiing, but I felt I could handle these slopes. It seemed like they had something for all levels. I came during Sundance, so it was a little crowded, but not overbearing.

“Summer hiking not as scenic as Park City/Empire/Deer Valley, snooty staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

The summer hiking here was just not as scenic as other areas in Park City. There are some nice areas near Red Pine Lodge but we found the hiking around Park City, Empire, and Deer Valley to be more scenic. They are also more accessible. We were dropped off at the base of the resort by the free Park City bus system, but had to hike up to the village (the 20 minutes felt a lot longer in the summer heat with no shade) given the total lack of shuttle service (after our arrival we finally saw a bus). We asked directions to the working gondola (most of the lifts were closed for the summer) at the Grand Summit Hotel where we had planned to have dinner later that day, but the staff at the hotel were quite snooty and unhelpful. Given that this is a tourist destination, we found this quite odd. We made other plans for dinner at place where we would be treated with hospitality. We rode the gondola up to Red Pine Lodge ($15 each). While on the mountain we were studying our map and a Canyons staffer asked if she could help. After we told her what we were looking for she suggested a hike. Unfortunately, only part of the hike was really scenic (part of it was more desert like than forest) and her assesment of the trail length and time required were grossly underestimated.
In summary, there isn't enough here for me to waste my time returning.
