Exploring the Outdoors

  1. As you explore the resort, you will encounter a wide variety of wildlife, plants and trees that are native to this mountain region.
    • The Moose, our most frequently spotted mammal at the resort, likes to feed on twigs and bark and can be spotted in the forested areas.
    • You’ll also encounter the Yellow-Bellied Marmot, Uinta Ground Squirrel and Mule Deer throughout the resort. In the skies and treetops, keep a lookout for the Red-Tailed Hawk, Raven, Black-Billed Magpie and the American Robin.
    • Remember, you should always keep a safe distance from animals and never feed them.
  2. There are over 100 native plants and trees within the resort, including Indian Paintbrush, Leafy Aster and Yarrow.
    • Did you know? The inspiration for the orange in Canyons logo comes from the Indian Paintbrush plant. Look for the small red/orange flowers around the resort!
    • Make sure you avoid the Stinging Nettles; although it looks like a harmless hairy weed with little flowers, it has a nasty surprise.When it comes in contact with bare skin the tiny hollow hairs break off and release an acid which irritates the skin and causes white, itchy spots to appear. It feels much like a bee sting and can last for hours or days.
  3. You will also find a number of different types of trees throughout the resort.
    • Quaking Aspens are abundant at all elevations. An interesting fact is that Aspens grow in clumps or "clones" that are genetically identical since stems are all attached to the same root system.
    • As you gain elevation on the mountain, particularly in the Tombstone area, you will find a number of Pine and Fir Trees.
