To start planning your vacation to Grand Summit Hotel
This imposing property is right at the base of Park City Mountain Resort, in the heart of Canyons Village and is truly ski in/ski out. It has a great variety of rooms to suit families as well as smaller parties. We love the service at the Grand Summit - nothing is too much trouble, and from the minute you're greeted on your arrival, you're made to feel incredibly welcome. There's also a ski concierge on hand who can even help you with your boots. Centerd around a large outdoor heated pool and hot tubs, the resort offers guests great facilities, including a fabulous health club and Spa offering some tempting treatments. There's a good selection of residences, whilst the penthouses are great for guests looking for some extra luxury. The latter have fabulous views across the valley and their high ceilings make for impressive accommodation. Behind the resort is a ski beach, where skiers like to end their day on the slopes, with a hot chocolate and s'mores, or perhaps something a little stronger.
The dining options at the Grand Summit are particularly good. Guests can eat in the restaurant each morning at breakfast, or take the gondola to the top, both of which are included in our room rate. The First Tracks Café is ideal if you just want to grab something quickly, whilst the fine dining Farm restaurant (votes one of Utah's top 25 restaurants) and the Mexican casual Red Tail Grill offer a wide selection. The latter is ideal for lunch, and thankfully, the portions aren't too large. We especially like the guacamole and the amazing range of salads and toppings. The Farm restaurant is a must-try during your stay but the portions are huge so we would recommend sharing a dish. The resort has a little supermarket for every day needs, whilst there's a great selection at Kimball Junction close by, including a Wholefoods. There are also lots of restaurants in Canyons, so you'll be spoiled for choice. The Grand Summit works very well for families with younger children, with an excellent childcare center. So even if your children are not yet old enough to put on a pair of skis, or only want to do half a day, they'll be in expert hands.
Relatively unheard of internationally, and part of the Park City ski area, Canyons Village is Utah’s best kept secret, with over 10m of snowfall annually. It is the state's largest single ski and snowboard resort and has seen a huge amount of investment over recent years, with luxury hotels and express lifts, including the Orange Bubble Express (the country's only heated chairlift). Formerly an old mining region, the area hosted the 2002 winter Olympics. The Olympic museum is a just few minutes’ drive from Canyons Village and definitely worth a visit. The skiing is excellent for intermediate to advanced skiers and boarders with an impressive amount of accessible off-piste terrain and usually a lot of powder between the trees. Although many of the runs are steep, they are also very wide which makes it an ideal place for children to learn to ski. This is also helped by the very professional ski school and a great beginners area. The village at the base of Park City Mountain is small but it has a good selection of accommodation as well as some excellent choices of restaurants and bars - the most prestigious being the Farm. If you're staying for longer or want to explore a bit more, then the historic Main Street at Park City is only 15 minutes away by car, where you'll find a huge number of restaurants and bars as well as lots of art galleries. Canyons itself however, has more than enough to explore and has an extensive events calendar throughout the winter season.
The suites are very comfortable and spacious, whilst the penthouses are ideal for groups or families traveling together. Rooms and suites are very well-equipped with flat screen TVs and coffee makers, and many have balconies, fireplaces, whirlpool tubs and full kitchens featuring GE Profile appliances. WiFi is complimentary throughout the hotel. Some rooms and suites include a whirlpool tub and a private balcony with mountain views.

Location & Directions
Park City, Utah
The Grand Summit Hotel is located at the base of Canyons ski resort and benefits from a fantastic ski in/ski out location.
When to go
The ski season in the United States is longer than that in Europe. Most resorts open sometime in November, with Thanksgiving (the fourth Thursday in that month) being a common opening time, and stay open until mid to late April. The exceptionally high altitude means December through to February can be extremely cold, with temperatures sometimes reaching as low as -12C, although the skiing conditions remain very good. Warmer temperatures in the Spring mean more variable skiing conditions and softer, forgiving snow.
