Average time to visit
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.
With views across the surrounding mountains, the Vintage on the Strand is a striking collection of town houses with close to ski in/ski out access. In the heart of Canyons Village, Park City, benefits from some of the best skiing in North America.
The Vintage on the Strand is a collection of spacious and luxurious town houses, which enjoy all the comforts of a private home and have direct access to the slopes of Canyons Village - North America's fourth largest ski area. The nearest gondola is just a short ski away, and the village with all its shops, bars and restaurants is a short walk. Vintage on the Strand has a distinctly Alpine feel to it and is beautifully finished. However, it's the views that set it apart, as it overlooks the surrounding mountains. The Vintage on the Strand is ideal for families looking for a bit more space and luxury, preferring to take advantage of the many restaurants around the resort.
Beautifully designed and built out of stone and timber, these houses are comfortably and stylishly furnished. Lots of windows make the townhouses light and airy, with homely gas fireplaces, steam showers and a hot tub just some of the comforts to look forward to after a day on the slopes. The facilities in the houses are first class, with fully equipped kitchens and everything you need for a comfortable stay. Guests here can eat out at one of the many restaurants in the resort - there's something to suit every palate. Breakfast is included at the Grand Summit or can be taken each morning at the top of the gondola in a restaurant.
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.
From huge American sized beds and fireplaces in the room, to enormous baths, the Vintage on the Strand offers real luxury. The fully equipped kitchens have every gadget imaginable.

They organize a wide range of fun activities for children with the option to book children in for either full or half days. Lunch and two snacks are included for children booked in for full days.
As these are a collection of townhouses, there aren't any on-site dining options as such. however, the kitchens are fully equipped with all the latest gadgets and there is a gas BBQ on the private patio. There are a host of dining options to choose from in Canyons - our favorites are the Red Tail Grill on Ski Beach and for a special treat, try Powder at the Waldorf Astoria.
Breakfast is included in our room rate and this can be taken at the nearby Grand Summit hotel or on top of the mountain.
As Utah's largest single ski and snowboard resort, Park City has over 4,000 acres of skiable terrain, accessed by 19 lifts, 183 trails and three terrain parks. Voted as one of the top 10 ski resorts in North America, the season starts late November and extends through til mid-April with over 355" of snowfall.
A great range of activities are available in Canyons Village aside from skiing, including snowshoeing, horse drawn sleigh rides, zipling and snow tubing.

How to get there
The easiest connections are through Dallas or Seattle from London Heathrow with British Airways and then onto Salt Lake City. It's a 9.5 hour flight to Dallas or Seattle followed by a 2 hour flight to Salt Lake City. It is then only 20 minutes by car to Canyons, making it possible to even ski the same day. Salt Lake City connects with over 70 US cities, so works extremely well with adding another destination as well.
