The Canyons Ski Holidays - Suited to beginners, intermediates and experts
The Canyons is a beautifully maintained resort that is perfectly suited to intermediate and advanced skiers. Having said this 14% of the area is still dedicated to beginner skiing, and considering this large resort has 81 ski runs, there is plenty to keep any beginner happy on their ski holiday in The Canyons
Last Minute Ski Holidays in The Canyons - Exciting fast runs
Beginners on ski holiday in The Canyons will tend to make the most of the High Meadows beginner area. In this area there are 25 acres of specially designed beginner trails that provide the perfect learning environment to get the basics down away form the more intimidating pistes in the main areas of the resort. The beginners area is located at the top of the mountain so it is snow sure at 3,000 metres and provides the perfect area to enjoy the views whilst learning.
Intermediate skiers on holiday in The Canyons will be happy as you have the largest amount of runs at your disposal. 44% of the runs in the area are at intermediate standard. The intermediate runs tend to fast cruising runs that cut down through the tree line.
Expert skiers are also very happy with the skiing here as the remaining 42% of the runs being at advanced level. Expert skiers have been given a gift of a quad chair that brings you to the summit of Ninety-Nine 90 peak. From the top here you can ski in all directions down trails of knee-deep powder snow on exciting and fast runs that lead to all the downhill runs.
Cheap Ski Holidays in The Canyons - Brilliant powder slopes
The vast majority of the ski areas in The Canyons are below the tree line and through the forests. Some of the resorts best ski runs are available on the South face of Murdock Peak which also has some brilliant powder slopes above the lift base.
The Canyons' trail map includes the location of more than half a dozen natural half pipes, including one in the double black diamond terrain below Murdock Peak and another in the gladed terrain of Escape Woods, also rated double-black.
Most guests will head for Park City when the lifts close. Here there are some 20 or so bars and clubs to enjoy if you don't want to make a night of it in one of the restaurants. Favourites include Italian Cisero's Ristorante and Night Club and Mulligan's Irish Pub and Restaurant. Other evening activities include a choice of three cinemas, the Egyptian theatre - one of Utah's oldest working theatres , the recently opened Eccles Center for the Performing Arts and the Kimball Art Centre - a local network for visual artists.
It's easy to get in to Salt Lake for big city attractions and facilities, including NBA basketball, Utah's Symphony orchestra, Opera and Ballet companies and the Mormon's Temple Square and famous Tabernacle Choir. Trips to the casinos in nearby Nevada are also organised from here.
Park City itself has a vast list of activities available through the season, as well as a schedule of big events that include concerts, snow sculpture contests and the annual Sundance Film Festival in late January each year when more than 100 movies are shown. Some of the more unusual opportunities include bobsled rides and ski jumping at the nearby Utah Winter Sports Park, a tour 1500 feet down in the operational Park City Silver Mine or the surreal experience of scuba diving in a mineral-rich warm-water crater!
Utah's only historic train operates through the winter also so that you can journey over the snow fields of the Heber Valley. All this makes sleigh rides, dog sled rides, snowmobiling, ice skating, hot air ballooning, winter fly fishing or a nature tour seem rather pedestrian.
Indoors there are plenty of tennis and squash clubs as well as spas and massage professionals to visit.
Until the opening of The Village at The Canyons the dining experience at the resort itself is limited to the mountain restaurants, including The Red Pine Lodge, Lookout Cabin and the newest, Sun Lodge. Given the competition in this side of the skiing experience from Park City Mountain resort and the legendary cuisine standards of Deer Valley, it's not surprising that The Canyons is highlighting its gourmet standards and service for on-mountain food.
There are around 80 restaurants in Park City itself so you won't be short of finding a place to eat. They divide up relatively evenly, with around a third offering a gourmet standard of cuisine, a further third still offering great food but more 'casual' than 'chic'; and the final third dividing up between fast food and speciality wine, ice cream and coffee outlets.
At the top end of the prices pile are the Riverhorse Café, the lengendary Seafood Buffet or Mariposa at Deer Valley, Chimayo for Mexican, Chez Betty's, the Coyote Grill and the Goldener Hirsch. For international variations try Café Terigo or Cisero's - two off the half-dozen Italian choices, Jambalaya for Cajun, Bahja Cantina for south Western American (and one of half a dozen also serving Mexican) and the Ichiban for Japanese - again one of a further half-dozen serving Eastern and Oriental cuisine.
