Thread Starter 
In february of 2006 my family and I are going to park city,Utah. I want to know how the bowls are are park city, deer valley and the canyons. Also where to find the best skiiing in what areas of those three mountains. I wish I was able to go to alta and snowbird but they're only intermediatre skirs and there is only a small village in alta snowbird not a large town, maybe another time.Please tell me about the terrain atpark city deer valley and the canyons. thanks!!

You're gonna love it! Deer Valley has one small bowl (intermediate), and many groomed easy blues, maybe 2 challenging groomers (stein's and ??)
Park City has Jupiter, your style it seems, and many groomed runs, although not that long most of them.
Canyons has everything, in spades, plus some nice trees. My favorite in PC.

But, (sorry), Snowbasin is BEST for Everything ('cept beginners). Unfortunately, no village.

Enjoy!

This is a great opportunity to use the search function. Much of this has been discussed before - including some "insider secrets". Additional questions would make sense after reading some of the better posts floating around here...

Depending on when you are going, the Gathering will be happening in PC in Feb. http://forums.epicski.com/showthread.php?t=27105

I have to disagree with Gpaul. The post above sells DV short. DV has quite a bit more to offer than one small intermediate bowl. Again, the search function can reveal a lot. As will the advanced DV mountain tour. The place may not be chock full of insane terrain, but it has some very nice off piste skiing, including several bowls - and tons of groomers (like I said, use the search function...).

I do agree with Gpaul on the Canyons. Vast amounts of terrain for all levels of skiing.

DV only has one small bowl??
Hmm Mayflower, Perserverance, Dailys, Onterio, just to name a few more6 bowls in all. Most of DV guests don't go there,,, they prefer the groomers off of Northside
Steep groomers?
Steins Way, Reward, Perserverance, Tycoon, Jordanelle.
Trees between MayfloweR and Sultan rarely see people other than locals and employeess. Daily Chutes for your thriills.
Over 50% of the mtn gets groomed nightly, plenty of rus to cruise with the family.
New this year, DV's 9th high speed quad, replacing the Sultan Triple. And the lift goes furter down the canyon.

My wife and I went to Park City this winter. This was only our 3rd year skiing and I'd describe us as middlin' intermediates. FWIW, we absolutely loved Alta. There is a groomed blue cruiser off of every lift and we skied off of every lift. One of the really nice things was that we could venture off the groomed runs to dabble in the powder and bumps without going far afield and committing ourselves to 1500 ft. of vertical that was way over our head. The 2nd day was a powder day, absolutely wore me out -- legs were toast by 1:30 or so, but we had a great time. There's not enough blue cruiser terrain to keep folks happy for a week, especially if they won't venture off the groomed terrain and don't like to repeat runs but I certainly wouldn't avoid it because some of the skiers are intermediates.

Salt Lake City isn't close enough for you? Geez.
