My wife and I took a ski vacation at The Canyons over the holidays. I will never go back. If you are not staying at the resort you have to take what they call a cabriolet from the parking lot to the base area, then walk forever to the main gondola. Then, at the top of the main gondola you have to get on another lift before you can even ski. Three lift rides before you can make turns...ridiculous! The whole mountain is too spread out and if you are not a local you will get lost. The staff was friendly but seemed uninterested in our good time. We are fairly good skiers and there is only one bowl that seemed to be lift accessed...they claim they have six bowls. You have to hike to the other five I guess. Ninety nine ninety lift is fun but it got so tracked out and bumpy. We also waited in line at saddleback lift and Tombstone lift for like 15 minutes each time. I will pass on The Canyons next ski trip.
