Park City - The Canyons
The Canyons Resort with its expanding car free, purpose built base village, at an altitude of 2075m, is now reported as the fourth biggest ski area in the US and still growing. Having already been transformed over the last 10 years, it has the potential to become the most extensive ski area in the US and thus a huge investment opportunity, with the circuit already combining 8 linked mountains (9 mountains of skiable terrain), 3700 acres of piste, serviced by 18 high speed modern lifts, no queues and skiing to 3045m. With South and north facing slopes and a superb 350 inches of snowfall each year, the Canyons resort was recently sold to the Talisker Corporation, who are tipped to take this incredible mountain to the next level, further enhancing the investment potential of this resort.
Linked by the very efficient free bus shuttles, (for those that don't want to drive), Deer Valley Resort®, Park City Mountain Resort and The Canyons Resort, offer a staggering total of 9000 acres of piste between them and all operate on the same lift pass, allowing skiers to enjoy the greatest snow on earth in the winter.
For those not wanting to ski there is a wide selection of non-skiing activities on hand. In addition to the usual town facilities including bowling allies, cinemas and leisure centres, there is a wide choice on offer. Backcountry snowmobiling, sleigh rides, hot air ballooning, indoor tennis, cross country and snowshoe tours, ice skating, fly fishing, shops and galleries, factory outlet mall, superb apres ski and a choice of over 100 restaurants to choose from are all available. Further afield, Salt Lake City is very easy to get to and a trip to one of the Nevada casinos is also possible.
In the summer simply explore the seemingly endless hiking and biking trails that wind throughout the three resorts, parks and public land during the warmer months. For those seeking an adrenaline rush Park City doesn’t disappoint. There’s one of the longest Alpine Slides in the world, with over 3,000 feet of gliding and sliding down a luge-like track. With four tracks to choose from, you can experience a different ride each time. Alternatively, simply soar above the tree tops as the ZipRider™ propels riders 110 feet above the resort's ski runs at speeds up to 45 miles per hour, or take Utah’s only Alpine Coaster. The elevated track winds you through more than a mile of loops, curves and hair-pin curves at speeds up to 30 mph.
For more sedate past times, Park City is quickly becoming a top mountain golf destination offering a variety of private & public courses with unmatched views. The news of the breaking ground at the new course at The Canyons will further transform this resort into a major 4 season destination, bringing additional rental income and is already drawing a lot of interest from investors looking to snap up one of the new residential properties to be built there.
The Canyons Resort area of Park City offers many incredible real estate opportunities. Conveniently located just 30 miles from Salt Lake City International Airport and the base area constantly expanding with new projects ensures there is a good selection to choose from. Real estate at The Canyons varies from comfortable studio condos to sprawling ski in/out estates. Most of the properties at The Canyons offer easy access to the lifts, with either a quick walk to the gondola or just step right out of your door.
