With Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort hosting Olympic events, The Canyons, Utahís largest and fastest growing ski resort, is creating its own excitement. Throughout the Games, The Canyons is hosting nine all-star aerial shows. That means world-class freestyle skiers and snowboarders perform daily an acrobatic aerial exhibition to music and fireworks on the front face of the resort. The high-energy show will happen today and then again on February 15th, 17th, 19th, 21st and 23rd.
Plus, The Canyons is presenting free fireworks shows every evening at 7:30 through February 23.
The slopes of The Canyons span across eight mountain peaks, covering 3,500 acres, and all of the slopes are currently wide open. In fact, The Canyons, like the other resorts in Park City, suggests that this is the best year to take advantage of secluded skiing. The Games are attracting spectators and leaving the slopes free of crowds.
But besides peace on the slopes, there are several other reasons to visit The Canyons. New this year is a lift that takes skiers to 25 additional acres that feature rolling terrain and some of the greatest views around of the Dreamscape area and the valley below.
For those who want to introduce a friend to Learn-to-Ski or Snowboard, the resort has added a totally new learning area near Red Pine Lodge. It has two new lifts, including a magic carpet, and terrain designed specifically for teaching the joys of skiing and snowboarding.
In all, The Canyons features 16 lifts, including the gondola and Cabriolet systems designed to quickly and comfortably transport eight passengers up the slopes. And there are plenty of runs for people of all ski and snowboarding levels.
And because there are no Olympic events at The Canyons, getting to the resort is easy. Guests can park their cars right in the parking lot of the Cabriolet. Plus, The Canyons is on the official SLOC transportation route. Shuttles start at about 5 a.m. and run every 10 to 15 minutes until 9 p.m.
With entertainment, secluded skiing and access to 3,500 acres, skiing couldnít be better at The Canyons.
