Interesting Fact about Canyons Resort…

Canyons Resort is one of three alpine ski resorts located in Park CityUtah. With 19 chairlifts and over 4000 acres (14 km²) of skiable terrain, Canyons is the largest ski resort in Utah.

The base area is located 32 miles (51 km) from the Salt Lake City International Airport, accessed via Interstate 80, and is four miles (7 km) from Main Street in Park City, along State Route 224.

The ski area opened as Park City West in 1968, a sister resort to the nearby Park City Mountain Resort, opened five years earlier. It was renamed ParkWest in 1975 after a change in ownership, and the name was changed again in 1995 to Wolf Mountain for two seasons, then became “The Canyons” in 1997, after the acquisition by American Skiing Co. (The small ski area currently known as Wolf Mountain (since June 2005) is the former Nordic Valley nearOgden.)

In 2007, American Skiing Company sold all of its assets and dissolved as an active corporation; however the sale of The Canyons to the Talisker Corporation went on hold due to litigation. The sale to Talisker Corp. was finalized in 2008.

In the summer of 2010, the new owners made a number of upgrades designed to ‘transform’ the resort. A 20-million-US-gallon (76,000 m3) snowmaking pond was installed, and the base terminal of the gondola was relocated. Two new high speed quads were installed, one of which replaced the Golden Eagle double. The other opened 300 acres of new terrain on Iron Mountain.
