I’m such a lucky girl that after skiing in Breckenridge in February, I also had the opportunity to ski in Utah at the Canyons resort right outside of Salt Lake City after my business trip last week. I can cross off #43 on my 101 in 1001 Challenge twice!
It was a gorgeous ski day. The weather was right around 39 degrees, sky was blue, the clouds were white and there was about 8 inches of fresh powder on the slopes. I couldn’t have asked for anything better… except maybe a ski buddy. 🙂
Overall I really liked Utah skiing. I think I have to rate Breck higher on my list because the runs were a bit more varied. Canyons had lots of blue and double blue runs which are my sweet spot but they were all very similar – long, narrow, and winding. I would have liked a bit more steep sections with wider parts to make it a bit more challenging and allow me to slalom and work on my technique.
I will say though, everyone I met was delightful. Utah is a lovely place to ski.
