Park City, UT (November 19, 2010) — Canyons Resort, under parent company Talisker’s ownership, is pleased to announce the opening date of December 10th as the first chance for the general public to get a glimpse of phase one of a multi-year improvement plan designed to enhance every aspect of the guest experience. After over two years of careful planning, executives from both Talisker and Canyons are pleased to unveil the first steps in one of the largest re-creation plans for a ski resort in 20 years.
Managing Director, Mike Goar commented, “In conjunction with the re-creation of Utah’s largest resort, we have made a commitment to our guests to provide a much improved product – not only throughout the season, but particularly on Opening Day. This includes the operation of the newly positioned Red Pine Gondola, the new Orange Bubble Express, as well as the Short Cut, Saddleback and High Meadow lifts. In addition, our vastly improved snowmaking system will enable us to provide the ability for guests to ski or ride to the ski beach on Opening Day.”
“This summer an enormous team of professionals worked tirelessly on the numerous projects we are undertaking,” added Goar. “Everyone is incredibly excited to show off all the hard work that went into making Canyons a preeminent destination in the country. We are very proud of the work we have done and can’t wait to welcome our guests to the resort this season.”
In addition to the new lifts mentioned above, guests who visit this season will be treated to an entirely new experience including expanded terrain on Iron Mountain, an exciting ski beach featuring sun lounges, fire pits and food kiosks, a massive new 1.1 mile long terrain park with 50 plus features, the recently opened Waldorf Astoria, as well as greatly improved and expanded food and beverage offerings.
The Canyons, a Talisker Mountain Destination, offers 4,000 acres of exceptional skiing and snowboarding terrain, 182 trails, 5 world-class lodging properties, including 35,000 square feet of flexible meeting space and a variety of dining options. Salt Lake City International Airport is just 35 minutes away and provides unparalleled access from anywhere in the world.
