Canyons Resort is one of three alpine ski resorts located in Park City, Utah. With 19 chairlifts, 4,000 acres of skiable terrain and an average of 355 inches of snow each winter, Canyons is the largest ski and snowboard resort in Utah. The base area is located 32 miles from the Salt Lake City International Airport, accessed via Interstate 80, and is four miles from Main Street in Park City, along State Route 224. In the summer of 2010, Canyons initiated sweeping upgrades designed to 'transform' the resort. The base terminal of Red Pine Gondola was relocated to create a new gathering area called Ski Beach. Two new high speed quads were installed, including Orange Bubble Express, the first chairlift in North America with heated seats. The addition of Iron Mountain Express opened 300 acres of new terrain. A dozen dining venues were added or upgraded, including The Farm at Canyons which was named Best New Restaurant in Utah in 2012. A 20-million-US-gallon snowmaking pond was installed, significantly enhancing the resort's snowmaking capacity and allowing for opening-day skiing to the resort village for the first time in 2011.
