On December 24th & December 25th, Santa will shred the slopes at Canyons, delivering candy and treats to all the good boys and girls around. Look for Santa at the Ski Beach and throughout the entire resort from 10:00am – 2:00pm.

Our 50th anniversary season begins with our biggest Opening Day ever this Saturday! We kick off the Big 5-0 with celebratory events, giveaways, the debut of our Golden Anniversary Ale and, of course, snow. Our team has been burning the midnight oil getting the mountain ready for Saturday, so without any further ado, here’s the gameplan:
PayDay, First Time and 3 Kings Lifts all start turning promptly at 9:00am on Saturday. Specific runs are still to be announced, but we’ll be opening a combination of beginner and intermediate terrain along with a jib set-up in Lower 3 Kings. But terrain openings are just the beginning…
We’ll be hooking up guests with special 50th anniversary gifts all day long, in addition to First Chair tee shirts to go along with the bragging rights of grabbing Chair #1 at each of the lifts opening Saturday. In the afternoon, the Miller Lite Apres Concert Series kicks off with the Motherlode Canyon Band entertaining guests on the PayDay Deck from 2:00 – 4:00pm. And we’ll be debuting our signature Golden Anniversary Ale by Wasatch Brewery inside Legends Bar & Grill and Legacy Cafe – it’s a light American Brown Ale with a hoppy aroma and taste that you’ll love (as long as you’re old enough).
Keeping with Opening Days past, guests will be greeted with free hot chocolate and donuts in the resort plaza beginning at 8:00am, and the first chair to depart PayDay Lift will break a celebratory banner to officially open the season.
We’re counting down to an Opening Day 50 years in the making, and we couldn’t be more excited to share the day – and the season – with you!

|The weather has turned cold, we’ve had our first snowstorms of the season and the snow guns are firing…which means the opening of our three Top 10 Resorts is closer than you think. It’s the kind of announcement that every skier and rider longs to hear. It means over 9,000 acres of skiable terrain, nearly 400 trails plus over 100 restaurants, and an action-packed calendar of events.|
There’s a lot of people here who devote their days to making your time on our mountain as memorable as possible. Our day is made when we see someone in Kids Signature link their first turns, a family laughing over hot chocolate at one of our on-mountain restaurants, or someone hollering with enthusiasm on a run through the trees. But getting recognition from the industry’s biggest ski and snowboard publications is pretty cool too – so you’ll pardon us if we brag on SKI Magazine naming us one of their Top 5 Resorts in North America once again. But there’s more where that came from…
In a survey this summer, SKI’s readers evaluated every resort in North America across a variety of categories – and turns out we did pretty well. Our recognition included:
“North America’s #1 Most Accessible Resort” “North America’s #1 Resort for Off-Hill Activities” “North America’s Best Terrain Parks” “North America’s #2 Resort for Family Programming” “North America’s #5 Overall Resort”
Thank you to all of you who voted for us in SKI’s survey – we look forward to seeing you again soon. If you haven’t been back to see us in a while, we hope you come back soon and see what all the buzz is about!
For 50 years, our mountain has been part of one of America’s great ski towns. Over time, Park City has become a year-round destination not only for skiers and snowboarders, but hikers, bikers, wine enthusiasts, film buffs, paddleboarders, music lovers, trail runners, art festival goers, foodies, marathoners and even wanna-be cowboys.
Outside gave the article’s author just 72 hours to find out if Park City had the chops to hold up to a title like ‘Best Town Ever.’ That turned out to be plenty of time: from world-class skiing and snowboarding to 370 miles of hiking & biking trails, a blue-ribbon trout stream, amazing restaurants and our own ski in/ski out whiskey distillery (just for starters) – there’s plenty to do here winter and summer. Of course you can do all this whether you live here or not, but getting enough time to check everything off your to-do list is another matter.
