Once the base area of the Canyons Resort (which merged with the Park City Mountain Resort in 2015), Canyons Village offers slope-side accommodations, several dining options and access to the Orange Bubble Express, the first "bubbled," heated chairlift in the country.

Recent skiers were delighted to find the Canyons and Park City slopes connected, allowing them to do runs on both parts of the mountain. Many commented on the spectacular views from the Quicksilver gondola that connects the resorts, and the heated Orange Bubble lift from the base area. However, some mentioned that those with a fear of heights should steer clear of the gondola. Advanced skiers preferred the Canyons runs, and many commented on the excellent service and dining choices. Some visitors recommended purchasing the Epic season pass and said it was a good value compared to individual lift tickets. Other reviewers liked the convenience of ski-in, ski-out accommodations and praised the friendly ski school instructors and the variety of ski lessons for all ages and levels. 

The village is located 4 miles northwest of the Historic Main Street. Day lift tickets are available for purchase at each of the base areas and cost $134 for adults, $92 for seniors and $86 for children, although discounts are available for advance purchase online. Two- and three-day tickets are also offered, as well as an RFID EpicDay card, which allows users to electronically upload lift tickets. Visit the website to book ski packages, passes and lift tickets.

#1 Park City Main Historic District

Park City sits in the valley between Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley Resort. Once a silver mining town, it has seen booms and busts, as well as a devastating fire that destroyed a large portion of the town in the late 19th century. The Main Historic District preserves its western mining heritage with a charming mix of boutiques, galleries and restaurants. The Park City Museum, located about midway on Main Street, features exhibits detailing the history of the mining town turned ski mecca and is also home to the official visitor center. What's more, a free trolley runs the length of street if your feet need a break.

Recent visitors loved the variety of shops, galleries, restaurants and bars in the Historic District, noting there's something for every taste from souvenir joints to ski boutiques. Many recommended a visit to the museum to get a feel for the town's mining history, while others complimented the free transit and the convenience afforded by bedding down in this area. Families enjoyed the historical statues along the street and the availability of clean public restrooms.
