The Canyons is a ski resort in the western United States in The Canyons, Utah, located 32 miles (51 km) east of Salt Lake City. The Canyons, as the ski resort is known, contains several training courses for the U.S. Ski Team, including slalom and giant slalom runs. During the 2002 Winter Olympics, it hosted the snowboarding events and the men's and women's alpine giant slalom events.
Opened 58 years ago in 1963, the resort has been a major tourist attraction for skiers from all over the United States, as well as the main employer for many of The Canyons' citizens. The resort was purchased by Vail Resorts in 2014 and combined the resort with neighboring Canyons Resort via an interconnect gondola to create the largest lift-served ski resort in the United States.
