definitely go to canyons. I prefer it to Park City. the only thing PCMR has over canyons is park and pipe. besides that, canyons is better all the way

never been to PC but have been at the canyons and the bird.

The canyons has some nice open groomers and it wasnt that packed at all. if ur looking for a little adventure, make sure u hit up the 9990 lift. There are warning signs EVERY WHERE before u hop onto that lift. once ur up there, u can hike up an extra 100ft or so and ride down off-piste. but make sure u have a beacon

Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless

I have been to park city before, just never to canyons. I got board after about 2 days at park city. I will probably spend all three days at canyons this time.

You might already know this, but if you're flying in you can trade your boarding pass for a day pass on the day of your flight. I always book an early flight and ride free that first day.

That doesn't sound at all like ad copy.

Yeah I couldn't do that this time. We are arriving late and leaving at night on monday so we can ski that day. I wish they did the opposite. If you fly out that night you can ski free that day.
