Canyons Resort First to Open in Park City

The Canyons Resort is now open
for the 2004/2005 Season. Utah’s newest and largest resort is the first
ski and snowboard resort in Park City, Utah to open for the season. The
Flight of The Canyons gondola began loading skiers and snowboarders at
8:30am today. The Flight of The Canyons gondola, Saddleback Express, and
High Meadow lifts will be operating throughout the weekend. Additional
lifts and terrain will open in the weeks to come, weather depending. “We are pleased to offer early-season skiing and snowboarding to our pass
holders and visitors,” said Scott Pierpont, President of The Canyons
Resort. “It’s always great to get the season started before the holiday
and we will add more terrain as the weather cooperates,” said Pierpont.

Opening day weather brought in light snow flurries, and temperatures
allowed for round-the-clock snowmaking on several runs. The forecast is
calling for additional snow flurries over the weekend, and more
significant snowfall by Thanksgiving.
