Trip report 3/1-3/8

This trip was our 7th in the last 8 years (skipped one year due to knee surgery) since we purchased a time share at the Westgate at the Canyons. We have a 4 BR suite at Westgate. We try to bring our children (now 22 and 24) and friends whenever we come. I will post individual reports for some of the restaurants, lodging and activities. We arrived on Friday March 1. We picked up our rental car first. A car is not needed, but we like the flexibility it provides and it is free to park at Westgate. Next stop was Costco to pick up some food and more important, lift tickets. 5 pack for PC $339.99 and 2 pack for Canyons $139.99. Note that the Canyons tickets are direct to lift, while the PC tickets require you to go to the ticket window. Westgate sells Canyons tickets to owners for $78, cheaper at Costco! Upon arrival at Westgate, my friend and I ate at Drafts while my husband headed back to the airport to get my son and daughter who were arriving on later flights. We skied 4 days at Canyons, 1 at Deer Valley and 1 at PC. Had a great time at all. Had lunch twice at Lookout Cabin at Canyons (one of the best on mountain dining experiences anywhere). Dinners were at Drafts, The Farm, No Name, Fuego, Ghidotti's and Red Rock Brewery. My son and husband enjoyed their cocktails at High West Distillery. Highlight of trip other than skiing (of course) was the couple hours spent at The Paint Mixer, Park City's new paint and wine studio. A must do! The skiing was pretty good, only snowed one day while we there. Snow is definitely needed. We flew back to CT on Friday March 8 and drove straight to our ski house in VT for the weekend - more snow there! People ask which of the 3 resorts we like better. Hard to answer. They all offer something for everyone, regardless of ability. We are most familiar with the Canyons. Although it is very large, it is manageable once you know your way around. Pick an area or two and stick with it. We love the Pines and Aspens, as well as 9990 when there is fresh snow. PC provides great bowls, McConkey and Jupiter are favorites. DV has great groomers for the day midweek when we need a little break! I would be remiss if I didn't mention the cookies there! All in all, another great trip.

Thanks for sharing. Canyons has really developed some fantastic on mountain and bottom of mountain dining the last few years.
