Try Canyons Resort For Last Minute Spring Skiing has this new article about spring skiing, recommending the Park City area. In particular, the article focuses on Canyons Resort.

Below are excerpts.

Whether it's about the slopes, the food, the lodging, or the tweets, Canyons is doing a lot of things differently, but it's also doing everything right.

...During my Sundance trip, I found myself duly impressed by this new and improved playground. With an emphasis on the ski experience as a whole and an innovative social media campaign to keep Canyons relevant, now's definitely the time to check it out -- especially since the season was just extended through April 17.

In addition to the funky orange lift polka-dotting the mountain, Canyons has added a new direct-connect gondola from the village, over 300 acres of expanded terrain (aided by another quad) that ups the number of trails to 176, and vastly improved snowmaking capabilities with a 20 million gallon reservoir. Already bearing the title of Utah's largest resort, Canyons also ranks as Park City's most challenging mountain. So while heli-skiing has always garnered its share of fans, Canyons' new mile-long tricked-out Terrain Park off Snowdancer (Saddleback Express lift) ups the ante for boarders, and Steep Skiing Camp taught by World Skiing Champion Brent Moles takes skiers on a journey way too adventurous for my intermediate-ski blood.
