“Of all the resorts in the state, the most distinctive must be The Canyons. The Canyons is five distinct ski areas encompassed into a single resort. Its unique topography and variety of offerings separates it from many of the other mountains in Utah. If you want to get a taste of everything in one single resort, The Canyons might be your best choice.
Each of its areas provides a unique component of snowboarding and skiing. From delicate glades of trees to open bowl skiing, The Canyons has it all. Their five different areas feel like a menu of choices where you get to select your favorite. With this kind of variety, a visitor could get spoiled.
To provide their visitor with the entire vacation experience, The Canyons has developed a large area at the base of the resort that hosts a large variety of shops, restaurants, and bars, plus their beautiful new lodges. They host concerts and special events and have worked hard to make their base area a hub of activity.
In all, The Canyons provides its guests with the complete ski vacation. A large mountain, great variety of terrain, vibrant activities, and amazing mountainside hotels are all part of the experience. If you are seeking all the elements for a unique vacation experience, look no further than The Canyons.”
