“Canyons Ski Resort - Great staff - huge mountain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Just got back from skiing two days at this resort. I was so impressed with the entire staff - from obtaining our life tickets to ski rentals to lift operators and staff at the on mountain restaurants. The ski conditions were okay - some runs were icy such as Sidewinder and Doc. It was bitterly cold - -18 during the night and 0 F when we went out around 10AM - the lift operator at the Orange Bubble felt sorry for the four of us and offered us a coupon for hot chocolate or coffee at any of the lift food lodges. We enjoyed our meal at the Cloud Dine location. The mountain offers a lot of options for the intermediate to expert skier - if you are a beginner you will probably not enjoy it as much.

It is hard to figure out the best ways to get from one side to another but once you do there are plenty of runs to enjoy. You can easily ski this mountain for four or five days if you are a good skier.

“Excellent Vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Ok this resort does it right except food! The runs are varied and the lifts are super fast with some shelter from the elements. We skied in sub zero temps but found the bubble to protect us and provide heated seats as an escape from the very frigid temps. The mountain is huge and terrific for an intermediate to advanced skier. I will come back but will not eat at the restaurants!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Airport half hour away, mountain has certainly grown since I skied here 2 decades agao, its well laid out many gast lifts- a good selection of runs at all levels. Despite bone shattering chill that didnt break 10 degrees for 3 days immensely enjoyed it

“Nice hill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Easy to drive up to and drop off your gear. We rented a locker at the base and then paid to park nearby. Sking was great and we had a nice lunch at Cloud 9. I liked the grilled chicken asian salad. $$

“Lots of traversing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

This is a great mountain. One thing that was tough for a snowboarder was the amount of traversing between runs. Other than that, the mountain was a pleasure.
