Did you know that America's third largest ski resort is less than three hours away from Los Angeles? 
Located just 35 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport (a two-hour flight from LAX), Canyons Resort puts its 4,000 acres of powdery terrain virtually in LA's backyard. Hop on a morning flight, and you could be standing atop one of its nine summits to admire 360-degree views of the Wasatch Mountains before noon.
And what a view it is. With 182 trails at your tips, all serviced by an array of high-speed lifts, Canyons Resort serves up Utah's biggest skiing and snowboarding (no small feet in a state known for its unrivaled snowfall and expansive mountains). Carve up fresh tracks down undulating runs, then let lifts like the Orange Bubble Express whisk you back to the top in a fully enclosed, heated bubble. 
But the fun isn't limited to the slopes. From farm fresh cuisine and world-class nightlife to ski-in, ski-out lodging and children's programs to keep the kids happy, Canyons Resort is the perfect winter destination. 
Whether you're knee deep in the world's lightest, driest powder or strolling through the luxurious base village, mouth-watering dining options are always nearby at Canyons Resort. Take an on-mountain break from skiing or riding at Lookout Cabin, where the sit-down, table-served lunch is only rivaled by the spectacular views. Dining options abound in town, but there's no better way to cap a perfect day on the slopes than with a meal at The Farm, a renowned restaurant serving local "farm to fork" cuisine. 
Feel like staying out? No problem. Park City's historic Main Street (a destination that has attracted everyone from cowboys to movie stars to Olympians) is just four miles from Canyons Resort, meaning over 100 bars and restaurants are just minutes away. Rest your weary legs over a pint of craft beer as you catch some live music in this authentic mountain town.  
Family-friendly Amenities 
Every parent knows that keeping your kids happy is key to a successful vacation. Luckily, Canyons has got you covered. The Perfect Kids ski school professionals will make sure your kids have a terrific time while learning and improving as a skier or rider. Book a lesson here or call 435-615-3449. 
Kids too young to ski or ride? The cheerful, state-licensed Day Care Center in the Grand Summit Resort Hotel is full of age-appropriate games, toys and activities to keep your little ones happy and entertained. Reservations are required, so call 435-615-8036.
A full day on the slopes followed by après-ski and a delicious meal deserves equally plush accommodations. Turn in at the Hyatt Escala Lodge, a beautiful, ski-in, ski-out property at the foot of the mountain. Click here for a full list of lodging options and to book your trip. 
Spring Grüv
No winter season would be complete without a chance to boogie in your boots. Now in its eighth year, Spring Grüv kicks off on March 20 for a 10-day party. Kids can learn how to jib in the mini-park, the adventurous can tempt fate by entering the Pond Skimming Contest and everyone can get down in the Resort Village to the live grooves by acts like Drive By Truckers, Keller Williams and The Motet.
