Canyons Ski Resort

At Canyons you’ll experience blue skies, cool, crisp evenings and awesome powder dumps. Since the resort opened in 1997 there has been great progress and expansion, and now with 8 mountains, 18 lifts and 3,700 acres (1,497 ha) of terrain, Canyons is the largest single ski and snowboard resort in Utah.

Canyons is the largest ski and snowboard resort in Utah and one of the five largest in the United States, at 3,700 acres and expanding (a further 300 acres is due to be added when the Iron Mountain area opens). It is very close to Park City Mountain and Deer Valley and whilst you can't ski from resort to resort, all three are easily accessed by local free bus services. Canyons resort village has developed over the past few years and now offers a variety of lodging options, several restaurants and bars and a number of shops and other services.

The ski area covers eight mountains with 167 trails to suit all ability levels. The season runs from November to early April, with the peak time February to March and low season early December and January. The snow record is impeccable with an almost guaranteed 355 inches (901 cm) of snow per year. Most visitors are from the U.S. but the dynamics are now changing with more visitors coming from elsewhere.
