The Canyons
We arrived in park city at 5:00am and parked in the McDonald's parking lot for about an hour and a half so we could get out snooze on. Strangely enough it was actually hard to sleep, it had to be all the adrenaline.

Well Park City Was AWESOME just like i thought it would be. On our first day here we boarded at The Canyons, very beautiful, I'd say somewhat upscale resort.
  • Base elevation: 6800 ft (2073 m)
  • Summit elevation: 9990 ft (3045 m)
  • Vertical rise: 3190 ft (972 m)
  • Total mountain peaks: 8
  • Total skiable area: 3700 acres (14 kmĀ²)
  • Lifts: 17 total
Even though there is a only about a 3200ft vertical rise it was huge, and challenging if you wanted it to be. We had a great time playing in the terrain park and taking nice long open runs to the bottom. But it sure was cold. The high at the bottom was 17f and 2 at the peak. Burr. But most definitely worth it!
                      
So we broke down and got a hotel room tonight, not sleeping last night really took it's toll.
