Very poor snow year, but still doable and fun.

The Canyons

The Cabriolet ride up from the car park to the base.


The Quad ride up (there is a gondola as well).


Trencher wuz here.




The ridge to the right is out of bounds and prone to avalanches.


This area is inbounds and avi controlled (see the scorch marks from the charges)




Lots of tree skiing.

I get the feeling you like your burgers almost as much as the skiing

Wow, some great shots there Trencher. It looks like a fantastic area. If the travel situation ever starts to improve, I would have to consider doing a trip over for an area like that.

A friend of mine wants to go to Vegas for his 50th in a couple of years, if I decide to do that trip, I guess it would be a no brainer to extend it for at least 7 days and come home via Utah. His birthday is the 2nd Jan, so every chance of getting some decent skiing in.

I agree great photos- just could do with flight prices lower - snow level higher but burgers look just right.

There are condos/apartments to rent in the resorts, but there's also lots of other places to stay in the area. There is a free bus service around the whole Park City valley that will drop you at any of the three ski areas. The town is vibrant and home of the Sundance film festival, with lots of restaurants/bars.

All three ski areas have very nice bathrooms (to use the American euphemism for toilets), but Deer Valley has a great locker room as well. I included the pics to show how civilised these places are. Deer Valley lift lines areas have boxes of tissues so you don't have to sniff on the chair going up. There are free guided tours, and mountain hosts to advise you on the best runs for your ability. Deer Valley and the Canyons have a trolly service from the car park, so you don't have to walk far in your ski boots.
