All Three Park City Resorts Make Ski Magazine Top 10

Ski Magazine is out with its annual ranking of North American ski resorts and all three Park City area resorts rank in the top 10.

Deer Valley ranks #2 in this year's report, dropping one slot after being ranked as the #1 resort in North America for the previous five years. Whistler Blackcomb took first place this year.

Park City Mountain Resort climbed to #4, up from #6 last year.

Canyons Resort moved up six slots to #10.

The Park Record has this article about the Ski Magazine rankings. Here are excerpts.

Park City was the only resort town to have three resorts fall in the Top 10, but the list included popular competitors such as Vail and Telluride, Colo., Jackson Hole Wyo. and Sun Valley, Idaho.

Deer Valley Resort took the most subcategory Ski Magazine awards of any single resort, winning first place in six of 20 categories, which included first place for grooming, guest services, on-mountain food, lodging, dining and family programs.

"This survey says something about the three resorts," (Deer Valley General Manager Bob) Wheaton added, "but it says something even stronger about everyone in town and how we're regarded in the industry. Everybody contributes. That's one thing we hear time and time again, how friendly and cooperative everyone is, and it really shows."
