Canyons Earns Top Ten Ski Resort Ranking

Press Release

October 2, 2012

Canyons Resort has been named a Top 10 North American ski resort for the first time in its history in the annual SKI Magazine reader survey.

Fueled by more than $50 million in infrastructure investment since 2010, lifted by the only enclosed heated-seat chairlift in North America, lauded for adding 300 prime acres of intermediate and advanced trails at Iron Mountain and fed by widespread upgrades in both resort village and on-mountain dining, Canyons earned the #10 overall ranking – a tremendous leap from #20 just three years ago before a massive resort transformation began.

“On behalf of the 2,000 guides (employees) who help our guests enjoy extraordinary experiences 365 days a year, I’m thrilled to share this news,” said Canyons Managing Director Mike Goar. “Talisker has invested so much – not just in money, but in time and people and dreams – that we’re grateful that the general public has responded so enthusiastically. This truly is a special mountain with incredibly diverse terrain, wonderful people and The Greatest Snow on Earth.”

Goar added that Canyons’ work is far from finished as this year will see the addition of new lodging and dining properties, three all-new terrain parks, the integration of a dozen Olympic and National team athletes into the resort’s Ultimate Mountain Experience fantasy camp and continuing work on an 18-hole championship golf course.

“Canyons has made a clear commitment to elevating its ranking through its infrastructure investments in the past three years,” said Chris Phillips, publisher of SKI Magazine. “We like to think our survey merely validates what skiers and snowboarders are experiencing as they seek out the very best in North American winter vacations.”

The annual survey of more than 20,000 skiers and snowboarders reviews nearly every aspect of resorts ranging from access (Canyons was ranked #3) to terrain parks (#9) to lodging (#10) and dining (#11). The complete list of rankings will be listed in SKI Magazine’s October issue, due on newsstands Oct. 15.
