Canyons, Utah's Biggest Resort, Now Bigger and Free Lift ticket with Discounts

Now known as Canyons, Utah's largest ski and snowboard resort just got bigger with a major upgrade, new lifts, lift realignment and an updated village. I just had the opportunity to ski there, on a 7 day Colorado and Utah road trip. The drive from Steamboat was just over 5 hours and over 300 miles. A straight shot that provided a mix of weather on this particular day. The realignment of the lifts and addition of the orange bubble chair sure made for easier access of the mountain and the ability to get form the bottom of the resort to the upper bowls and terrain.

Canyons has just extended new savings in the form of $8 off a daily full day lift ticket or 10% off multi-day lift tickets. These Canyons discount coupons are part of the Mountain Sports Club premium membership and are personalized for each member. Now for a limited time we are also including one FREE Canyons lift ticket valid for a day of skiing or riding at Canyons resort in Utah. This is an $89 value and the membership is now only $39.50 when you use the promotion code canyons to redeem this offer and reserve your free lift ticket at the Canyons.

Sunlight Mountain, Glenwood Springs and the Hot Springs

This weeks journey started last Saturday in Colorado going through Steamboat, Utah - Canyons, Snowbird, Alta and Sundance - has me brought me for a couple of nights to Glenwood Springs. The ride over was a delightful drive in blue skies against snow covered peaks covered just over 300 miles of mostly highway driving in juts over 5 hours. I had left Sundance resort just out of Provo on Thursday afternoon and arrived in Glenwood staying at The Ramada right downtown. The Ramada staff was great and the room was comfortable with a great bed. One note of merit the downstairs 6th Street Grill served up a great burger right before closing to make sure this was one happy guest. It was right at the wire of closing and the staff made sure I got my meal in. A nice selection of local micro-brews and I was a happy camper.



Friday I was greeted again by deep blue skies as I drove the short 25 minutes from in town to Sunlight Mountain Resort. Sunlight Mountain is known as one of Colorado's hidden gems. Tucked between the mega resorts of Vail and Aspen each about an hour in different directions, Sunlight offers a family friendly and laid back ski and snowboard experience. The skiing on this day was perfect soft snow groomed to perfection on the groomed runs and soft cut up powder from the most recent storm earlier in the week. I had never skied the area before and enjoyed the selection of glades that ranged from moderate to the selection of double black tighter and steeper glades. Lift ticket prices are half what the charge at the mega resorts coming in at $50 as the top ticket price. The greater bargain is using the Mountain Sports Club discounts that include 2 for 1, half price and even a free lift ticket offer.

After enjoying the day of skiing I went and gathered the swim suit for a soak in the natural hot Sulphur Springs pools in town. This ritual has played out for ever in Glenwood. The hot springs resort tight on the Colorado River is as soothing and relaxing a way to end a day as one will ever enjoy.  Today it is up and at it for the short one hour drive to Vail to ski with my sons before heading back home to Boulder. Look for more up dates and stories from the past week next week.

Canyons in Utah Goes Big - New for 2010.11 First Bubbled Chairlift with Heated Seats in the United
States, New Gondola Portal to Ski Village, New State-of-the-Art Quad Lift,

New Terrain and Enhanced Snowmaking

Park City, Utah – In anticipation of the upcoming ski season, Canyons, a Talisker mountain
destination, is pleased to announce the launch of two new, state-of-the-art lifts, a new
direct-connect gondola, expanded terrain and vastly improved snowmaking capabilities.
This is the very first phase of the re-creation of Canyons. Anticipate several future
significant announcements including dramatic food and beverage news.

Orange Bubbled, State-of-the-Art Lift – First of its Kind in North America

Just outside the Grand Summit Hotel, the new lift is a marvel of engineering and will be
the first of its kind in North America. One of the most technologically advanced chairlifts
in the world, the bubble enclosed, quad lift offers unmatched visibility, safety, and design
and includes sophisticated comforts such as heated seats. The weather protecting orange
bubble will evoke the feeling of being inside a pair of ski goggles as it transfers guests from
the steps of the Grand Summit Hotel to the mid-mountain Lookout Peak before continuing
uphill to an ending point just south of the current Sun Peak lift. The new lift will be a
visually stunning addition to Canyons and will increase the uphill capacity from basemountain
by a staggering 47%. Most importantly, the new lift will allow skiers to get to
the very top of the mountain in just nine minutes – a far more timely, simple and elegant
fashion than ever before.

New Direct Gondola Connection from the Center of Canyons Village – First Phase of Village
Re-Creation

A new gondola portal has been created, located immediately across the village center from
the Cabriolet Lift, it will create a direct-connect gondola that transports guests from the
center of the village to the Red Pine Lodge. This will provide a far more simple and fluid
process for transporting guests onto and off of the mountain. In addition, the gondola
cabins will be upgraded.

300 Acres of New Skiable Terrain / Iron Mountain Lift

Utah’s largest resort is getting even larger and more exciting. The southern-most part
of Canyons will see the construction of another new detachable quad lift, which will
provide guests with access to an additional 300 acres of northwestern facing skiing and
snowboarding terrain. Ten runs, ranging from intermediate to expert to gladed tree skiing
will bring the total number of runs to an impressive 176. Timberline Lift will allow guests
to ride in either direction and provide easy access to the south side of Canyons. This will
allow guests to move around the mountain more easily.

New Snowmaking Enhancements

In addition to Canyons’ almost 400 natural inches of some of the best snow on earth and
existing snowmaking capabilities, Canyons is constructing a 20 million gallon reservoir to
ensure a consistent skiing and riding surface particularly in the early and late stages of the
season. The reservoir and additional infrastructure investments will more than double The
Canyons already significant snow making capabilities.

Canyons Ski Beach

The Ski Beach, located between the base terminal of the new direct-connect gondola
and the new high speed, state-of-the-art quad lift, will become a gathering place for the
beginning and end of the day. Along with Talisker’s award winning culinary team, Canyons
will provide guests the ability to enjoy everything from breakfast to an apr├Ęs ski cocktail in
a truly beautiful and breathtaking setting viewing up the mountainside. The Ski Beach will
also prove to be a wonderful setting for concerts and other cultural events year round.

Canyons, a Talisker mountain destination, offers 4,000 acres of exceptional skiing and snowboarding
terrain, 176 trails, 5 world class lodging properties including 35,000 square feet of flexible meeting
space and a variety of dining options. Salt Lake City International Airport is just 35 minutes away
