A Run for Everyone: President’s Day Weekend Tips
To reiterate on my last blog, skiing with people is a blast! However, sometimes it can create logistical nuisances such as which trail to take. Experts know to head to Ninety-Nine 90. Beginners like to stick to blue runs. One thing, among many, that I love about Canyons is that there are tons of great runs that can be shared and enjoyed by all.
President’s Day weekend is sure to be jam packed with groups of skiers and snowboarders looking for a fantastic time. If you happen to be part of a crew with varying skill levels and are looking to take a few runs together, here are some groomers that will be fun for the advanced, intermediate, beginners AND even experts:
NORTH SIDE – Meet at the top of Super Condor Express and take Apex Ridge all the way down. If it is crowded, shoot off skier’s left early to catch Aplande. More often than not, it is wide open for you to make as fast or as slow of turns as you desire.
SOUTH MOUNTAIN – Meet at the top of DreamCatcher and take Alpenglow to Mirage to Apparition. This is a long cruiser that will take you under and over bridges as you weave through The Colony. Just remember to keep going right at the bottom of Alpenglow and you’ll be smiling the whole way.
Are you with someone new who’s nervous about the double blues? Have no fear, because here is a lovely run you can share together:
Get off Tombstone Express and take Silver Spur to Peak 5. At the top of Peak 5 take Harmony all the way down the mountain. Though it doesn’t offer the most technical terrain, experts will be equally as thrilled because of the incredible mountain views peppered with glimpses of the gorgeous homes that make up The Colony. Truly a trail that is unique to Canyons.
Lastly, don’t forget to stake out your spot at the Umbrella Bar on Saturday for the Saturday Spring Concert Series. At 3:00pm, Downright Blue will be giving a free show! Boots unbuckled and drink in hand. Sounds like the perfect way to cap off a perfect day at Canyons!
