Tuesday, December 9: Park City or The Canyons?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I managed to snag a 9.5 hour layover in Salt Lake City on Tuesday.  I have an Epic Pass so I'm going to ride PC or The Canyons while I "wait."  I love the Canyons when it's good, but it looks like PC has more open runs.  Any suggestions on which mountain I should shred for a few hours?  The Mama just wants to ride...but I might as well hit the best spot.

I was at Canyons on Saturday afternoon. It's just the Saddleback Express and some beginner terrain. I heard the lines were awful in the morning, but in the singles line I never had to wait more than about 2 minutes. I rode the lift a few times with people who said Park City's better right now--and definitely there's more room for people to spread out onto different lifts. That said, the snow was very nice at least--packed powder mostly, with just a couple of bare and slick spots, with nice corn forming later in the day.

I skied PCMR on Monday, Thursday and Saturday last week.  They are doing a good job with the blue groomers and there are enough of them open to entertain for a day.  I have not been to Canyons yet this year but those narrow runs are not my favorite in low snow times.

Park City was fun on Tuesday. There were several green and blue runs open and the snow felt nice. I rode from noon until the lifts closed and rarely encountered any ice. When I did all the runs, I lapped the park for the rest of my day. Lots of rails set up, a couple of jumps...something for everyone. Still, pray for snow!!
